Before I joined here, I'd only buy retail (Back then, I thought everything was the same and didn't know retail from hobby) from Walmart. Now I know a lot more (Which still isn't much compared to the big guys around here) about the collecting community.
The exact same for me. Always bought retail as i didn't know the difference.
Also, didn't know anything about prospects etc. before blowout.
