I appreciate the additional info that @edgecrusher and others have brought to this thread. One of the better that I've read on TFW. When I watched the video, I didn't even think about the fact that Hung was arbitraging the price from Asia compared to other NA retailers. There's been several small guys on Facebook who have tried to sell 3P and ended up shutting their stores down because they weren't making enough money. If 3P was making money hand over fist, they'd be pumping out more figures than they are at this point. They need to be able to make profit on certain figures in order to fund the duds that don't sell. Same thing goes with retail. I would be curious to know what the profit margin is for 3P companies selling in Asia compared to the US. Is the profit margin that much higher or does it get eaten up with shipping costs, exchange rate fluctuation, etc.
