I am surprised you dont know since this comes from one of your favourite combiners. It's Silverbolt from Beast Wars Magnaboss.

Huh, that was my guess, but the size seemed off to be him.

Still a guy I need to get eventually, same for Tripredacus

I'm surprised that Silverbolt is still in one piece, mine shattered the last time I tried to combine them thanks to GPS.

And the red guy is Play Arts Kukule/Angelo from Dragon Quest VIII. Surprised to see one like that, but they were available at comic shops, game shops, and video stores back in the day (2005).

Thats G1> BW Silverbolt Magnaboss component. Unfortunately he's known to suffer from Gold Plastic Syndrome which makes him brittle.

Big Jackpot at the local thrift store, there was a complete gen rhinox. I have never ever found a complete toy like that. There was other stuff like rescue bots, and those cars with the character underneath, and some MOTU (I think). there was also what I think is a KO. Looked like Sideswipe portrayed as BB.

Is his rhino "butt flap" missing the tail? It isn't a removable piece, so if it is missing it would be broken off. It might just be the angle of the photo, as it does hug pretty close to the body.

Gen Rhinox is to date my best clearance and international find. Found him on clearance at a Canadian TRU for $13 CND back near the beginning of CW.

Nice! I just watched Jobbythehong's video review on him, and he's a pretty decent BW figure. I think I prefer Takara's paintjob better, but for a catch like this, it's great!

Blastcharge!

Rescue Bots!

TMNT Transformer!

Air Raid!

I envy those finds. The stores around here never have TFs in the thrift stores

Slipstream (Red Buzzsaw Minicon) seems to have been one in a million for me. All this year so far and only 1 of him was ever seen. He's like a good luck charm for me and i am used to often carry him during my retail shift hours. And even on my night desk after lights out.

While some were in stellar condition, blastcharge and air raid were in really bad shape, lacking some key pieces.

Was in the Toronto area this week-end and boy do they have better stuff than in Quebec. The fact that they only have 1 language/culture and more people means there are way more TF toys in the thrift store. Also went to TRU. And outside the store we saw a yellow camaro, fun!

I don't care how bad of shape they may have been in, I would have got that Cybertron Prime and Scourge.

Found this at a thrift shop, is it a KO?

Found other fun things, including Senator Organa.

That green fellow is Jungle Bonecrusher:

Not a KO, but he could very well be with the QC problems he has.

That's thrift shopping for you sometimes. I've picked up an ROTF Leader Optimus that was missing a foot and a pec (worth it though), a 2007 Leader Megatron missing the left arm pod entirely and the cover for the right (plus his battery cover; still worth it to me), a Jolt missing a leg and his hood, a DOTM Megatron missing the cannon, a headless FAB Ironhide (for parts), a partial Deluxe Desert Brawl that I'm making whole using leftovers from a chopped-up regular Deluxe Brawl, an animated Shockwave missing the gun, a DOTM Thundercracker missing one of the side panels and a forearm...
I've also grabbed some with less grievous losses: A working Omega Supreme tank only missing the outer chest cover, a Leader-class Brawl only missing the gunbarrels, a DOTM Bumblebee only missing the doors, an ROTF Scavenger/Demolishor only missing the little side panels..

I would've bought it and done something to it to make it a Headmaster body.

Would've been fun
