    So I was at some collectables fair today and managed to buy this lot of some lady for $15 AU (I think that's around 10 - 12 US dollars). The Euro-G1 Flame and BW Night Glider I bought seperatly off another dealer, but put them in the photo for fun. Some of the bots are damaged, but more on that in a minute:

    Everything is missing accesories / weapons, except for the 2 brainmasters who have their partners, but the partners are missing arms. It's a shame, but I've been after these guys for ages (I already have Gripper) so it's nice to get them in some form. One of them is also missing a large amount of his chest too (the one that's not called Gripper or Flame):

    Grotesque has a bit broken, but you can't really tell in robot mode:

    The ponies are in there because my girlfriend decided it would be a good idea. That, or I just really like ponies.

    The G2 Swindle is missing his head (don't care as I already have one), Silverbolt's legs are detached as you can see, Warparth is missing his whole turret / head thing, and about 3 of the micromasters are missing little bits like car hoods. But otherwise, they're all working and fine. So really I was only after the 10 or 12 good micromasters, Repugnus and the little guy from Monstructor but there's a few other good working bots in there. Not bad for about $12 US eh?

    Oh, if you're interested, I paid $15 AU for Flame and Nightglider (again, around $10 - 12 US).

    Definitely a good deal. That many figures for that price, even with damage, is good.

    That's actually Sonar you have there, not Nightglider. Nightglider's the flying squirrel.

    Looks like you got a nice deal there.

    I have to say, before reading your explaination, I was just thinking WTF, Ponies?!? Next time your girlfriend says pics of your Transformers will look better with ponies, tell her "Only if they are being crushed under a Decepticon's foot," or some other means of death to strike fear into her damn ponies!

    :lolol
