I'm still working through what I have! When I get everything organized I will post a list in the parts bin of what I'm getting rid of.

As for the garage sales, I drove by as a woman was pulling out boxes and saw the holy light shine of of the Omega Supreme box and immediately pulled over to talk to her. She was in an abusive relationship and the "boyfriend" (I use that term loosely) is now serving time so she is moving and getting rid of everything of his. She asked for $200.00 for all the TF's but I felt bad considering the quantity and gave her $260.00 which was all I had on me at the time.

Personally I'm itching for one of those Magnus'. Though more just the armor... Lmk on a price and see if we can work something out - if you're willing to sell one, that is. ;)

You might want to think about changing your name and relocating to another part of the country. When that guy gets out of prison, he's gonna come looking for his collection.

To hell with the girlfriend! Where's my toys? :D

Have really been getting much lately but today had a nice score. I had to go to another town though. :D

None of it's really "new". But I did finally get to complete my SWTF and Cybertron collections. For some reason I never ever found a Wreckloose and he's been out since December. :roll: The big thing I happy about is the Clone Wars Gunship. I preordered one from Amazon but it never came. So when I found it at TRU I said "What the hell, I'll just cancel my order". Ironically, when I got home today, I had an email from Amozon saying they would not be able to complete my order. :lol:

I don't see much Joe stuff around here either. I get most of my Joe stuff through Hasbro Toy Shop. But TRU had 5 of those Morays sitting on the shelf for as long as I can remember and since I never had one as a kid, I figured what the hell. Actually, now they have 4. :) It's pretty cool. Had to do a lot of trimming to get parts to fit though. Mould degredation I think.

The gunship kicks ass! So does SWTF Clone Pilot. I think it's my new favorite. :D And I impulse bought the Tusken Raider! Glad I did!!

Yup! but I think that was the end of my luck streak. I went out again yesterday (you just never know) and found next to nothing. The one good sale I found was so overpriced and they wouldn't haggle! They wanted $12 for McD's muppet babies still in the bag and wouldn't haggle.....at a garage sale!!!???!!!???!!! WTF????? plus thay only had some chewed on beast wars so I walked!


I guess the horseshoe fell outta my ass after that last find. I hope it does some good for whoever picked it up!

Hey TFM,

If you have any thrift shops in your area give those a try! the one up here is called value village (don't know if they are in the states or not) and they put out 1000's of items every day that people donate and I have found some real good scores in there over the last few years! Also try some consignment stores, nobody knows what they have they just want a little cash for it so good scores come by often!

I've tried VV a couple time and still nada. Did find one small bag of TF's once but nothing special.

What is a Consignment store?

Consignment stores are where people bring in the things they want to sell and the person who owns the store sells the items for them for a small percentage of the final sale!
