Some set actually got a much bigger premium if you fail to get them during the event, be it corporate set or doujinshi set (with comiket exclusive goods).
For instance, Kantoku C81 set was worth 1000 yens when I could got it, and the very next day in Mandarake, you could hardly get it below 3-5K.

That's the very reason why so many people rush the comiket with a full platoon instead of waiting the post comiket period: you will sometimes have to dish out 200-300% of the actual value or even more. That's also why so many people buy 3-5 copies or even more, so they can supply their friends who are actually dispatched on another area.
In fact, the actual number of people aiming only for resale is much lower than you might expect.

It does kind of suck having to spend 25000円 (on the item itself, not including anything else like shipping, fees etc.) on something that costed originally 12000円. Or all the other overpriced things that i "needed" to get.
