    I shouldn\'t have to explain that because the exclusives are available to everyone that trying to flip them will be much harder than before. No, dont believe me? I mean the sdcc guys didnt either but here we are.

    Its a vicious cycle:

    Toys get more expensive; collectors flip them for higher prices to fund their addiction; manufacturers notice secondary market (toys going for 4-5x MSRP) & raise prices, causing ever more scalping and raised prices!

    Either flipping these things is incredibly lucrative or collectors r really bads with maths! :lol  As someone selling his collection, I can tell u that eBay and the USPS take a huge chunk of any potential profit...

    Hit or miss. Anything you want to sell is worthless while anything you want to buy is priceless.

    I'm hope there is a virtual signing stream. I just did a few from a different con this past weekend, was so worth it. I love that I was able to chat with the VA and didn't have to leave my house and stand on a line for hours.

    Can't stand ebay either. Very hard to sell at a reasonable price when you take shipping, ebay AND PayPal fees into consideration. Then the taxes on the buyers end. Local is the best way to eliminate the middle men but it also limits the potential buyers. Forums work well to remove ebay from the equation.
