    I had just picked up human alliance sideswipe today (he's been staring at me at work for weeks now..I finnally felt sorry for the poor guy and picked him up. On the way home I stopped at a yardsale that advertised "toys and cool stuff) I checked it out, unfortuantly it was pretty dead...lots of crappy clothes and mediocre toys like spawn and hotwheelish cars. I asked if they had any transformers or power ranger type stuff and the lady said they had some but they sold pretty quick...she thought for a minute and said to hold on ..she brought out a box labeled "alternators" (see pic) and told me she thought they might be transformers...she said they were pretty dusty, I looked in the box and asked how much....

    tee hee 10$ :)

    she was definatly right they were MEGA DUSTY but most of them look intact overall, a few missing parts and hound is totally trashed. I was never a big fan of the line when it was out (only had a few figures before)
    better picture once i opened everything up and put them back together:

    and yes animated prime with a g1 prime's gun was in the box too (nice bonus since its the fat gun) overall i'm a happy camper and human alianace sideswipe isn't going to get much love till i'm done with these guys.
    already had a few of em but extra troops are extra troops right?

    Shockwave and Decepticharge? Dude!

    Broken Hound was probably worth the $10 by himself! Well done!

    i dunno hound is really trashed, looks like whoever owned him really hated him, his whole back "rollcage" is smashed up and many parts missing, also I forgot to mention dead end is actually the binaltech version (now I own a whopping two bts, which amusingly includes hound)

    hee hee, Its more persistance then anything else, weeks and weeks of finding an ocational puked on dora doll or a megazord with a leg chewed off are payment for the ocational good or great find.

    someday i'll find a 6$ fort max just to beat you!

    i thought finding a junker with most parts missing for 30$ was pretty good too...
