    A kidney, a testicle, and a lobe from your liver, plus S & H.

    Do you mean the cost at the con or the cost aftermarket on ebay?

    Those are two entirely different questions.

    they did Jazz a couple years ago. I hope Hasbro wont't release a new molded figure in a exclusive. That would make the flame war worse. (please lets not start that one again, it's worse than the RiB Fib/ RiB FiR debate)

    RRP tends to be $50 - $120 per "pack" which usually contains 2 - 3 toys.

    Less than round trip air tickets. Not to mention the hotel cost.

    Allow about $200 - 250 for getting one of each set on offer. If it's a set that's going to be in demand, try getting a second to resell afterwards to make back some of the cost of your trip. Of course, it's hard to judge popularity at the outset, but if it's something like the Seekers, it's a no-brainer.

    Indeed! For instance this year the Sweeps 3-pack was an amazing money maker - it was only $50 for the pack of 3 and it was selling for around $200 on the secondary market.

    They do cost a shit load, but IMO it's worth it. If I had extra money I would buy two sets and try getting back a small amount of the cash.
