It seems totally up their street, considering how they seem to be branching out now with t-shirts and the Funko Pop vinyls. DVDs and CDs are on the way out, it's only a matter of time before they go back into administration. Same can be said about Game. I think selling figures and toys in general could help them. The same can be said about CeX - how about a store where you can trade in your loose and MOC figures? I think they'd make a killing if they did it right.
The second-hand DVD/CD chain That's Entertainment chain are biting the bullet at the moment.

It’s a nice fantasy for a toy collector, but not feasible. They’d have to build a database of prices for millions of toys from all kinds of eras and brands, and for loose figures it’d be a job even knowing what it was as it’s not like a DVD with a title on it. If someone brings in a random SpiderMan figure or a box of generic mid-2000s Jakks wrestlers, it’d take hours for the assistant to even go through and know what each one is worth. The market wouldn’t be there to support the outlay.
