Have you ever bought a toy just for the intent of re-sale?
About 7 years ago, they released the ten year anniversary of Tickle Me Elmo TMX. It sold out nationwide in one day. My wife wanted one for my daughter, so I bought one off eBay for $70 (seller had name spelled wrong), but they were selling for around $100 each.
Three days after selling out nationwide, I was walking though Wal-Mart in Prairieville, and the lady was just stocking the stores alottment of 60. I bought 24 of them for $35, sold them within 6 hours for $90 each!!!
I know Hot Wheels are scalped pretty bad.
