and yet some will still complain that its hard because they are new and aren't used to things selling out so fast.

and yet some will complain about the complainers complaining.

time is a flat circle.

Put up an EB ISO with a high figure and also create a false sale on ebay.

Rant incessantly about it pops in person and pics don't do it justice when it arrives.

Mention car troubles and an un-approving wife who find alien iconography just too phallic.

Procure McRib Sandwich with ill-gotten gains. :pint:

This might be some next level stuff I'm unaware of...

Ultimately, I'm not trying to be annoying about this. SORRY GUYS.

I think you're just conflating how much easier it is for YOU with how easy it is for everybody, which...if it were, we wouldn't be as entertained by FB/Twitter feeds post-ZOMG drops. :wink:

True that. From a personal stand point, I just cringe at people "bragging." That's my flaw. I'm cool with "+1" ... but "+1 that was easy..." I cringe at. Plus, if people missed on it, it's sort of crapping on them, for it being "hard" for them.

Sorry that I've delved this far into it.

And Joe -- I guess I may be doing that. But even in the days when I started and was learning the ropes, it was more of a speed thing to me, not whether it was easy or hard.

lol Funkos.

Speaking of which I bought a fudge ton of those for my kids who no longer want or give a fudge about them. How do I unload them without having to go through drymounting price-guides and dealing as little as possible with "Funkos."

I tend to doubt there's anything overly rare in the bunch, but I probably have 100-150. With boxes.

LOL they are still licking their wounds over quite a few art purchases. They are going to learn pretty quickly that this fudge a little more niche than sneakers and funkos. They are getting rekt



Ps every time I’ve seen that traxs person post I always think it’s trarex. POUR ONE OUT

Popped into a B&N store last weekend to use up some coupons. The place was littered with Funko's. LIke columns of them stacked from floor to head height.

Only ever got the BR set and even those are too cutesy and naff for my liking. These and Tikkis I just don't get as a must-have collectible.

Is decent ROI on Funko's still a thing?
