Scalpers will see gold and think UGH, so it's going to be just as difficult to track down IMO..
Maybe, but there's going to be a lot of Darktroopers, as opposed to the UGH. The "scalpers" won't be able to keep up.
I guess I really can't relate because the scalping boogeymen have never once stopped me from obtaining any figure in the quantity that I want it at retail. I just have too many Targets, Walmart, TRU, and KB around here for them to beat me out everywhere all at once. I win, and I win all the time.
