    One of the local comic chains (The Great Escape, also do CDs, records, toys, collectibles, busts, statues, books, DVDs, tabletop games, card games, and videos) is having a thirtieth anniversay sale this weekend, starting today. Everything in the store is 30% off, and tomorrow, they're actually handing out extra stock, 5 pieces to a customer, for free. Of course, i was outside their door two and a half hours before they opened today...

    The big sucker showed up on the wall two and a half weeks ago at $600. Couldn't swing that (not a bad price though). White, undiscolored, and in great shape, if a little dusty. And complete. With paperwork. I was hoping ever since that it would last until today, and it did! Woohoo! $180 off for a score price of $420!

    The other three were just too good to pass up! $35 a piece, all complete, with nigh-perfect chrome, no paint wear, and no yellowing? I was a goner.

    That's an excellent price on the fort max, especially from a comic book shop.

    A comic book shop close to my girlfriend has been trying to offload a MP-2 for $200 for over a year and a half now.

    LOL @ edit.

    ROFL @ the MP02. And yeah, The Great Escape usually isn't bad (I thought $600 for this specimen was maybe even a little low at it 's original price, I just could NOT swing that). They go by Lee's book prices, which can be high, but they tend to adjust here and there and usually come out with reasonable numbers.

    Too gorgeous to pass up! I put back a TM2 Megatron (mine's hip got Gold Plastic Syndrome, despite being red) and a Repugnus to get them instead. The chrome on them is just unbelievably perfect. I can only imagine how much care their prior owner(s) took with them.

    I'm happy as a clam right now, LOL. I feel INCREDIBLY lucky that the figure stuck around for the two anda half weeks. I think this about covers it...

    Did Maxi come with a box?

    I go to Louiville every now and then, where is the store?
    Went to Wondercon in June.

    Bought a BW Rhinox Japan Reissue at Botcon this year from you. Thanks.

    Pal took me clubbing down there a couple times to Connections...Little did I know, but you could get into bar at 18 with a sponsor. Good times.

    I'm happy that you're happy man, and so you should be. It's great for old TFs to bring so much joy to us, and it's great to read about your sort of stories and not just people getting ripped off and conned on ebay.
