As others have said they end up being the last game in town more often than not, and if it's something you really really want you'll probably rather go with them as opposed to someone you don't know on eBay. Also they advertise very very heavily on these boards so I guess a lot of new collectors fall for that as well. Heck I'm from the UK and when I first got into collecting years back for third party I nearly pulled the trigger on a maketoys quantron, luckily I decided before finalizing the purchase to Google it and found bbts half the price, but I was a click away from double paying basically. Customs still bent me over of course... Thank god I found kapow toys, TFS express, showz etc not long after!
