Just remember there's something of a science to getting hold of Botcon toys on ebay. During the con start watching every auction on items you're interested in. Don't bid on lots for the first week or two, prices will initially be artificially high as everybody scrambles for the same figs. What you are watching for is prices starting to level off and find their own level. There's generally then a two week window where there are still a relatively large number of figures being listed but the demand is no longer quite so high and the folks who were dropping silly money have got themselves sorted and are thusly out of the game. About a month after the con supply really drops off and demand becomes the enemy again, prices will start to steadily rise again and deals will then be a lot harder to come by. 2-4 weeks after the con is the golden number.
