    Sincere or not - it certainly came off as petulant. A quality that should be lacking from moderator posts.

    People who were not at dcon but had major dcon hauls.

    I've seen a couple of posts from overseas now where collectors got more from the artist I went for than I did. I pay for tickets, parking, take time off work, get there hours early and sit on a cold floor only to get 1 toy after standing in line twice for my guy. I see these people who weren't there having 2 and 3 toys from the same artist. F them. And yes I understand mules, I've wanted to use them myself over the years. Maybe next year I'll hire some mules to come in with me. Hell I should hire people and have them dress in mule costumes and stand with me. Anti mulers mule club and all that.

    @SaintOfSpinners

    You pay my airfare and hotel, I will make and wear an actual mule costume to stand by you while secretly eating nothing but bean burritos the whole event.

    Nobody will get near the toys without wafting through the beautiful bean fumes, which by that point they will not likely even remember what they are looking for.

    Sadly even that will not prevent what you described tho. Some artists themselves cater to deep pockets and sell to that type of fanbase regardless if they are even at the events. Sad cold truth. Dcon being bigger only allows much much more of what you are talking about.

    Personally, I quit collecting certain folks stuff all together after seeing this first hand too many times.

    Worse than that is posting photos of toys you are happy to own and share without getting hounded by self entitled goons expecting fat cash to always end in a sale.

    I suggest trying as much as possible to contact whomever you enjoy and quite politely ask if you can possibly ever buy anything direct.

    Keep it simple. It seems the only way to deal with the situation without the BS factor. If they decline or ignore you, collect some other folks stuff.

    Lots of hassle free toys and artist that are not hyped. Just depends on how you want to collect. Hype smothers so many otherwise great artists to a point of no longer being worth the efforts.

    @kichigai

    Thanks.

    I'm not really too upset. I've been collecting long enough to have all I need. And I understand that some places never even have shows so what are fans to do? But 3 to my 1 was too much.

    But come join me next year. Anti flipper mule club!

    Look, I am the first to admit I am an absentee landlord here, but quite honestly, the idea of this thread as a whole surprises me. The idea that this board (or anywhere for that matter) need a place where someone can come to vent on the perceived injustices of the world in such an unhinged way confuses me to no end. (And for an audience with vindication no less!) As an adult, I can be frustrated and angered by many things, but feeling the need to dedicate a place to be able to lash out to an audience in such a vitriolic way seems like a pent up 7 year old screaming that someone got more candy than they did. Secondly, this doesn't really seem like a place to excise your anger, but rather a place to come and say crazy shit you know you can't say other places because it has been called "Fuck You". Clearly, all the horrible P.C. snowflakes have made it so hard for anyone to say what they truly want, so if we dedicate a thread to it, we can get to 62 pages. It is no different than offering criticism of a release vs just saying "that shit fucking sucks". In any case, clean it up or we can kill it. Talk about toys instead.

    I would also post the story about how, back in 2008, I stumbled upon (I believe) Shintaro Kago's resin toys of pregnant floaters & maggot-riddled babies upon this very message board, which slightly distraught me to the point of posting something along the lines of "Jeez leave it to the Japanese to take things a notch too far", to which the general reply was "Don't feed the troll", but I'm too busy being offended about that "Scarving Children" line from Bob's Burgers. How. Could. They. And on Christmas. #cancelbobsburgers

    As for "keeping it toys", maybe have a gander at the fugliest toys toys thread to see how well that's been working out in the meantime...

    Either everyone’s lives are perfect lately, or everyone is too scared of Papa Flynn.

    Fucking hell.

    A collector from Singapore on FB asks if anyone is interested in a Bear Model Mini Giradorus? I'd love one, so i drool at the photo they PM me and ask how much they want, and they tell me it cost them $130.

    For a fucking mini. One mini equals one hundred and thirty dollars. Bastard!! Calling it 'vintage' would be a stretch. I mean, fuck me sideways. What the hell is going on with this hobby?

    @The Moog Chances are that’s not what they bought it for, but rather hiding under that guise ‘cause that’s how much they want for it. Happened to me with someone that approached me with a want, having a wild “I paid [crazy price] for it”, only to learn they’d originally gotten it from a buddy of mine for about half of their asking price.

    Sure, that did cross my mind, but the way the PMs are written I don't think so! I told them I've probably never paid more than $40 for a single BM mini, or thereabouts. But times change, and it is quite a rare one, so maybe they did pay that much.

    Secondary market prices have been jumping up for certain makers the last few years. For example, the amount of money people are asking for Marmit Godzilla figures recently, is fucking ridiculous.

    Nothing I can do about it. Its just the way collecting goes, but I can still get royally fucked off about it, once in a while. Just gotta keep huntin' for the bargains.

    Maybe these guys are scrambling to make top dollar on their toy 'investments' before a huge clusterfuck financial collapse hits Asia in the next couple of years

    @Mr. Humphreys I watcheded this yesterday, and it had me laughing pretty damn hard. These people STEAL packages from porches, then have the nerve to be upset over what happens when they open the box. :lol: “Man, look at my car!!!”
