Scalped! An Interview with the Enemy
Miscellaneous: Jay Cochran - 2010.01.08
More often than toy-collectors would like, we find ourselves staring at row after row of lame characters on the pegs. And though we like to blame poor distribution and uninteresting character-choices, we can also add scalpers to that black list. They are a twisting thorn in our collective sides, it's bad enough that there will only be one Raven for every 10 cases of DCUC, but there is always a scalper somewhere willing to make you suffer even more. But is this pain justified? Can it be justified, much like war?

Head over to ar-tic-u-lat-ed to check out their interview where probe the brains of two successful scalpers, doing what they do best for different reasons and then head back to our FORUMS and share your thoughts on the issue with your fellow collectors.
