I went to Botcon 2010 with the intention of selling off a good chunk of my collection, which I did, and made a very nice profit. I took some of that money and paid bills and also invested in toys here and there for sale like RTS Grappel and Lugnut. Come last weekend I went to Slagacon and didn't do very well. Mostly I think because I didn't have what people were looking for. In my opinion it seemed like at both shows it was the latest toys from Japan, i.e. Masterpiece, Alternity, etc. I'm probably correct in thinking branching out into wholesaler Takara Tomy toys is beyond my scope given the BBTS, TFsources, and Captured Prey's of the internet world. I'm looking for any advise on how I can create a nice side business that is profitable from something I love. Thanks!
