You will almost never find a complete transformer there (I never did) but its a great place to find parts and placeholders. There is a junk market not too far from where I am which I visit once a month, and its made up of a bunch of small stalls where people sell the junk they find. I was able to find a nearly complete ROTF Leader Megatron for 5$ and a 90% complete Leader Deep Dessert Brawl for 10$.
I took some pictures of said junk market above. If anyone is in the montreal or quebec area, and is a toy collector, or is into any vintage collectable, it should be on your radar.
