Hi guys,

I need some input please: I buy in the Hot Topic pony stuff to sell as part of my anime/convention stock, and so far I've just had the vinyl ponies. I'm looking at getting a few other bits and just noticed that they have FiM cards for $3.50 per pack now.

My questions: Is it worth it for me (UK based) to buy these cards from the USA? I do not know if they are out in the UK at all, as I don't collect the FiM cards.
If I DID get some, is it worth selling them as-is, sealed, or opening the packets and splitting them up to sell individually?

If you're going to buy the trading cards to sell, they are much cheaper at walmart and target, so I would recommend passing up getting them at hot topic as its not store exclusive. AS for resale? I honestly don't know.

Since I'm in the UK I don't have access to Walmart or Target, I guess the cards are $1.99 or $2.99 a pack normally? They're not something I've even looked at before, they literally just popped up on Hot Topic again. :)

2 dollars a pack at walmart, yeah. Hmmm. If they're hard to come by in the UK I'd say get them as there would be a local need in collecting. I personally would keep them in pack

You can buy the sets in the UK now - they are available at TRU and sell for £1.49.

I am sure they would be popular at UK conventions as now everyone has a TRU near where they stay :)
Thank you Matcha for my gorgeous Baby Fifi avi :hug:
