    Ebay:
    Recently, my brother sold me his Cybertron Optimus, Megatron, Vector Prime, Evac, Scourge, two Energon Cruellocks, Command Ravage, Universe Optimus Primal, Beast Wars Optimus Primal and reissue Cheetor, Movie Cyber Stomping Prime, and T.E.C.H. handheld game thing for a total of $31. I'd say I got lucky there =D

    One of my bosses once bought me a Cybertron Brushguard after working all night to get a project done on time and actually yesterday my wife bought me Universe Darkwind. She knew I was looking for it and haven't had a chance to get out to TRU to look for it recently. She teaches near a TRU and was in the same plaza and stopped in and scored one for me. Then afterwards I got lucky again...

    I played poker awhile back and didn't have money for the buy-in. I put my still-in-box Activators Cliffjumper (it was in my car) up to cover it.

    I got lucky and managed to not loose it.

    Does that count?

    Yeah, all in the same day for me. I found a Voyager Animated Megatron in the par, I gave it to my nephew, then my fiance bought me an Alternators Nemesis Prime, which caused her to get lucky. Then I found an Alternators Dirge for $1.00, bought the last one I did, then went across the street to find an import store that had an MP-Grimlock for $30. That was a good day for me.

    Hiro Prime had someone wander into his store a few weeks before Botcon that year, and sell it to him for that much; he let me have it for what he paid for it. If you want to see what condition it's in, look here:
    The " I own Liokaiser" fan group - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards
    The pics I put in there are of the one I got. :)

    Energon Optimus Prime (large version with trailer and drones), Energon Tidal Wave, Armada Thrust and some Power Rangers Zord... thing. Only things missing were one of Thrust's missiles and the ramp from Prime's trailer for launching the helicopter. Oh, and some bit from the Zord thing that enables the core bull unit to open out and carry the other four as a land cruiser thing. Price? Nothing. Zip. Nada.

    Wow, talk about repressed memory. I remember when I was a kid, I found 2 or 3 Aerialbots on the ground by the bike racks at school. Awesome.

    I found an Energon Screamer once in my school yard. I didn't know who it was until I saw this years Botcon exclusive Leozak. Me and my friends destoryed though because at the time(2004?) I didn't like TFs.
