    My wife and I stopped by a local thrift store earlier, and I found a pretty awesome haul: a big bag of Beast Wars figures plus 2 Animorphs (for sale/trade here.

    The bag cost $9.90 and contained Magnaboss, Cheetor, TM Cheetor, Grimlock, B'Boom, and Cybershark. All complete (except B'Boom who is missing his missile) and in immaculate condition.

    Animorph Ax, Cheetors, Cybershark, Grimlock, and B'Boom again.

    Animorph Mega Class Visser Three. See sale/trade page (link above) for these two guys.

    All in all, an awesome haul. I almost paid $35 for Magnaboss alone not too long ago, so that by itself makes this a steal.

    If the robot legs/pegs are intact on Grimlock, that's more than worth the price right there. Good stuff.

    Funny you should say that...one of his (robot)legs wasn't pegged in in beast mode, and when I tried to snap it in place, the hole's border crumbled a tiny bit. GPS FTL. Otherwise it's like new. The ball joints on all of these figures are super tight, especially B'Boom. I think the previous owner used a little super glue or clear nail polish to tighten them up.
