The only thing worth scalping these days are limited editions and chase figures....but I can never find them, so that's the main reason I don't scalp....any longer.

That was a neat interview.
At the risk of the ire of many of my fellow tankers, I just don't see much of a problem with "scalpers". In the U.S., we have the right to buy what we want, and we have the right (mostly) to sell what we want, with a few notable and pertinent exceptions. These guys are not depriving anyone of the necessities of life. And the only thing that separates them from an antique dealer is time. I think one of them made a very valid point that you don't collect this stuff to put your kid through college. There are very few guaranteed investments today, and I am sure that toy collecting is not one of them. Really, though, it's all simple economics. Don't buy it if you can't afford it/don't wanna pay that price. Shop around. You can find a CS SE for less than what some of these guys are asking. Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

Biff's a jerk. Moe was decent.
Biff came across as someone that is trying their hardest to find some justification for their actions.
Like I said elsewhere, the difference between a scalper and a businessman, IMO, is what they charge intially (being EBay, they have no control over what the final price is, and that is where the buyer is to blame if something goes high).
Item retails for 10, sell on EBay for 13-15 + shipping, that's okay, that's businessman.
Item retails for 10, sell on EBay for 20 + shipping, that's not okay, that's scalping.
So no, don't agree with Biff's "anyone that buys and sells anything is a scalper".

This thread's been closed to avoid the inevitable name-calling. Everyone's definition of scalping is different. Any attempts to set a boundary between scalping and non-scalping is completely arbitrary. Bottom line (as has been said many times before): don't like the price, don't buy. Keep all accusations/witch hunts out.
