I found a Green Botshots Brawl in a Charity shop for 20p last year. I also got a bag of kenner aliens so yes you find the odd cool stuff. - carboot sales are better though in general for cool finds.

-----

As for the "Haul part" of this thread - I did finally just get an Animated Activator Fire Blast Grimlock and I also got a TR Power Master prime.

The strange thing about Prime's minion/head is I'm not really sue who it's supposed to homage is it Hi-Q or is it Orion Pax to some extent too - as the colours really are not like either of them but it does at least remind me a little of Orion Pax due to the face too.

Boy does that face look pretty silly on the Voyager Optimus :)

Been mucking about with different customs base modes - he's not to hard to make some much better ones with the options he has.

Hopefully sometime this year I can finally get an Ultra Magnus then I'll lend one of Magnus' guns to Optimus and the reverse so they can both have a pair of guns.

Awesome! I got him too once just because I wanted to experience the mold and the deco looked fun. Sadnly though, I am not a big fan, he is very fiddly and not solid at all.

I see him as an homage to both. he is Hi Q in robot mode and orion pax in head mode.

Thats pretty smart, I didnt even think of that and I own both.

I am please to say that today I FINALLY Got an RID Crazybolt in B&M Bargains unfortunately I missed out on the Dinosaur Gun leader I was hoping to get to complete the combiner - they'd all gone.

I'll see if I can get one on Amazon instead. (Bit off topic but I was rather surprised to see they had a rather groovy The Dark Knight Returns batman figure boxed set too) I think that store has more Batman stuff than TRU does.

They also had some of the Mini-con 4 packs too - but not the one I needed unfortunately which is one of the Weaponiser ones.

Still no sign of anything other than The Optimus wave of CW limbs though - perhaps eventually they might get something else too.

But yep - I'm dead pleased to get Crazybolt he was only £9.99 as well.

That is a great price for a fun figure, congrats! I had a very similar experience hen I saw it at a store called Winners, here in Canada. It sounds like your store, which gets like random toys, depending on what their wholesaler has. They also had that same pack of minicons and I too am waiting instead for the all weapon one. It never appeared in Canada so far.
