So, I finally emailed the guy that runs K and C Collectibles here in Little Rock, and I straight up asked him, "where do you get your figures, do you have a dealership with Hasbro?" I did this to see if he would tell the truth, that he gets his wares by scalping. His response? "We get our toys from multiple distributors, who have connections to Hasbro."
So I wrote back, "Multiple Distributors? You mean like Wal-Mart, Target, or Toys R Us?" I haven't gotten a response yet.
So remember, boys and girls, when you accost that smelly guy pushing a cart full of ALL the new figures, he's not scalping he's "securing merchandise from multiple distributors".
