    ALSO, CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL!!!








    So, I am throwing a tv away at the local trash center, and i spot some old gi joe vehicles in a huge box, and another box with one flap open. I can see a combaticon peeking out. I opened the box to find the EPIC WIN that you see here:

    complete bludgeon and monstuctor are my favorites. there's really a ton of good stuff here, all win, and no fail. some of the toys have specs of white paint on them, but it rubs right off. the headmasters all have the heads, and the bots are all inside the pretender shells. all this was free. some dumbass threw them all away, and I rescued them from landfill hell.

    Here are the gi joe vehicles, which I haven't even started on:

    Holy crap. That looks like someone got pissed at their spouse and tossed a collection out.

    the transformers...so complete...so amazing! they're definitely in way better shape than the joes. I'd love to see someone sit down and figure out how much all of this is actually worth...

    I can't believe someone would throw these away. They would have to know with all the movie hype that they were worth something. How lucky that a transformer fan ran across them!

    C'mon, it's October 1st, not April. You are one lucky bastard! :D  Did you stop and buy a lotto ticket on the way home? I'd have probably emptied the damned dumpster looking for anything else. Nice man, VERY nice. Much full of win.
