GW didnt make the box for everyone. They know that people such as MM exist, who are either not into chaos or have too much stuff already and aren't going to get a copy. Sure they are going to try and lure everyone into buying a set but they do take into account that its not going to be for every one. Cuz for every MM out there, there is also a Tordeck, who bought two. One for himself and one as a gift for some new to the game friends. Xmas was perfect timing.

They also sure as *edit* don't make things with the resell market in mind. Resale is not a part of their metric and never will be. Same as Wizards of the Coast and MTG.

Yeah, I knew what you meant... I think we all play pretty nice with each other (thankfully)...

I think I am (getting) closer to where you are as well... I looked at a daughters of khaine list just a few days back (which sadly I have a block of 30 old ones and an old cauldron and blah old stuff)... and even though I am in reduction (to a small extent - really exchanging to remove what I don't use for consolidation into larger armies that I do use)... I kept researching it and eyeballing the daughters boxed set ... making calcs on what I could flip to get what I want....

I sadly fall into the Plastic Krak category a bit too much... I envision/desire more than I can possibly use... well if you see me put an daughters in one of my adds we know which way I went.

yeah. i was in the plasticrack phase a while back, as well.
I moved from that to "buying large lots," with stuff I needed in it, then selling off the rest to recoup costs (sometimes with a profit, even!).
I have too much unsold/untraded "recoup" stuff in my basement now, and am no longer in "build mode" on any armies... so... yeah. LOL

After
"I moved from that to "buying large lots," with stuff I needed in it, then selling off the rest to recoup costs (sometimes with a profit, even!)."
Is the
"I now have a full fledged business buying and selling minis."

To HELL with that!
I do NOT have time for that. LOL

I'll leave that to those like you, with the time and temperament for it! : )

I'm in the "I really need to get rid of this crap" phase.
For me, there's no phase after that!

My greediness outweighs my desire to be rid of it cheaply. LOL

I went into full business mode on eBay with discontinued Ral-Partha 11 series stuff... It was a lot of work...

When WOTC told RP to destroy the molds, I, literally, went to every (game) store in Atlanta and consumed the remainder of their RP 11 line (en masse). They didn't want it as it could be restocked, it was eating valuable display space and I think to the stores were thinking WOTC was going to go into miniatures full force... and maybe to some extent that line (and RP in general) had been out so long that it just wasn't sexy anymore.

I stick them all in large plastic tubs and just don't mess with them for a few years... then WOW, there really are no legit (D&D named) monster lines because WOTC played with it but just couldn't stomach the difference in profit vs cardboard crack. Suddenly, almost any monster from that line is $35-55 and it is time to sell...

It is hard to work a full-time job, a part-time (really more) e-Bay job and all the other things in life... I salute you - as you know it isn't easy - and you do a really good job.
