Monopolizing the LEGO Ewok minifig market

There are only five different kinds of ewok LEGO mini-figs. They are sold buy hundreds of dealers on bricklink.com. I’m thinking of buying all the LEGO ewok mini-figs under $10 and start selling them for ten bucks each. People gotta have their ewok mini-figs!

Right now there are 705 ewoks for sale under ten bucks on bricklink.com. It would cost me $5,257.37 to buy them all. (that’s an average of $7.45 per ewok).

I’d have to sell 525 ewoks to break even. And if I sold all 705 ewoks, I’d make $1,180. Hmmm. Doesn’t seem like it’s worth it for all the work.

Looks like the new ewok lego mini-fig currency is not going to happen.

aww. they’re cute! but i’m not paying fifty dollars for one… sorry! did you also factor in shipping & packaging or is that a customer expense?

another flaw in this strategy: the demand for ewok toys in general.
