My experience here, and I think Bubble will back me up on this, is
that you can get more than twice what you paid to buy and import
an item easily enough -- when I go to the local comic stores, limited
edition statues and figurines, etc are for sale for much more than if
you ordered them online and had them shipped from the US.
Why? Because there are always going to be people rich and crazy
enough to pay a lot of money for something they want without
bothering to find out if they can get it cheaper somewhere else.
(Although, I must wonder, why do you need to wait for the
lunchbox to appreciate to 40$? Why would you even want to sell
