Fullmetal Alchemist Merchandise Update [Hot Topic]  
Browsing through the Anime store over at Hot Topic and I came across this nifty little piece of merchandise:

Why couldn't they have had these at Hot Topic when I was there yesterday? ;_;

I actually got Scott one of the phone straps like this with chibi-Ed riding chibi-Al when I was at AKON. So it's funny to see the pins available, lol.


And, thus comes the question: With main stream stores like Hot Topic selling this stuff, what is that going to do convention sellers?

Sell it cheaper. I bought a Roy keychain from a convention vender that was a dollar cheaper than at Hot Topic; $3.00

How much cheaper can they go? If they're selling authentic stuff, well, anime goods in Japan are damn expensive. Unless those are the kind of keychains you can get from vending machines, in which case they'd still be making a $1 profit if they resold it for $3.
