Step 1: Get In. Step 2: ??? Step 3: PROFIT
Ah, San Diego Comic-Con. Amidst the panels, signings, and cosplayers, there's a wealth of collectibles to throw your wallet at. Some of us want to take these treasures home and display them proudly in the most prominent places in our homes, yet other have more... capitalist intentions. See, most of the stuff that sells out quickly is immediately turned around and sold online for a huge markup. Can't make SDCC but really want the rare item? Hope you have the cash!
Sadly, by the time you read this, SDCC will be coming to a close, meaning you've missed your chance at grabbing them yourself. A lot of these items are high-quality busts or limited edition figures that will be never be available elsewhere. If you wanted to make some quick and decent money, the turnaround game would have been a perfect option. But now you're on the other side of the table, and if you want to get these, you're going to have to spend a small fortune. Use this as a cautionary tale of opportunities missed, and take a look at these twelve examples of big money from this year's show, and be ready to plan your way to profit in 2014.
