Hes saying that BF is more picky about their resellers and just not everyone can be one.

That and their pretty fixed about how many resellers they have now, since its easier to control inventory and such.

It was really nice to be able to buy BF items at BF prices from your reseller @ BrickCon. (Some mushrooms, Roman helms, bits and bobs.) So much nicer for me as a consumer to be able to see and handle the parts before buying.

Quick question for Armothe, do you actually have a Brick-And-Mortar shop, or is the shop little piles of lego in your basement?

There's not a brick-and-mortar shop, but the piles are anything but small! |D

Really? That's too bad. It would be cool if you had one.

Brick and Mortor stores for Custom LEGO pieces would die horrible deaths if for no reason not enough traffic in the store would not even cover the overhead of owning a store.

with online stores the overhead is almost minimal your only paying for the site, while a brick and mortor store you have utilities, rent, insurance and so on.

Dude, No need to rant at me, surprisingly enough, I know all this stuff. And I was in no way suggesting that Armothe should open a shop, only that it would be cool if he had one.
