Which brings up another problem. A hobby shop goes out and gets the latest and greatest craze to hit the market. Carries anything and everything you can possible imagine. Then the day comes the new latest and greatest thing comes out and you're stuck with a couple thousand dollars worth of stuff no one wants any more.

I have a theory that says 20-40 percent of all hobby stuff made never gets used.
