    today i found an MIB cybertron megs for 30$ and I was wondering what other peoples best finds were.
    there were also 3-5 G1 blasters for around 20$ each. I've also found a perfectly working G2 megs for 10$

    I got a Cyb Quickmix at Walmart for $11 once. Right around Christmas, I got a free (for shipping costs) Alt Prime from someone that wanted to curb stomp it...

    I'm not really one to find deals... I don't usually have money, so I don't usually look.

    Last fall I found a Cybertron Primus on clearance at a Walmart ten miles from the Mexican border for $15.

    Besides that though, I'm a pretty unlucky guy so I don't run into very many bargains. :(

    Probably 25th Ann Movie Prime for $26 on clearance after Christmas. I already had one from buying it at the standard price, but this is an amazing toy with all of it's releases, small stacks or not, and anything below $50 for it is a steal.

    Guy I used to work with sold me a buddy about half a garbage bag full of his old TFs for $30. We split the cost and the toys. I got G1 Metroplex with rubber wheels and super-minimal chome-ware, Chromedome (with head), Mindwipe (with head), Goldbug, Nautilator, some junkers/parts, and some busted Go-Bots out of the deal.

    Hells yeah, I just won this auction at a steal.

    Is it better than a Black Big Convoy for $15? Hell no, but I'm surprised I was able to find such a great deal.

    a two dollar evolution of a hero set (was 0.00, but worked out to pay 2 bucks)

    a $7 richochett reissue when he was first released, stupid TRU and putting the wrong thingy to swap the price of richochett, who was $35, to a on-clearance $7 grapple

    Mini Toyshop Convoy for about $7 a piece, and I found lots. I think I bought about a dozen after all. Had fun with some board members doing group buy :) 

    Lio Convoy VS Galvatron set boxed for $20.

    Trade with my TF sensei. I sent him 2 sets of Energon Happy meal toys (8 in total) and he gave me exclusive clear EZ collection set, police Gasket and some Galaxy Force oddities. I nearly crapped in my pants :lol
