yeah, I am pretty sure they do not send whole cases to stores
I have been looking at some ebay auctions and I am noticing some of the collectors from marvelousnews.com are putting these figures up for sale as they are finding them. That stinks. Wish they would help out.
I'm getting a little less judgmental about that kind of thing. It's one thing for basement dwellers who scalp for scalping's sake; but this hobby is getting so damn expensive, I'm no longer as critical about fellow collectors who offset the expense by recouping some of the cost if they get lucky with a find by putting it up on the secondary market. Fortunately, I never find anything good that I don't need myself, so I haven't been personally confronted with the moral dilemma of what to do in such a situation, but I'm not going to begrudge fellow collectors who occasionally make a buck or two back on eBay.
