    A completely broken armada Unicron. They just wanted to get rid of it. 50 cents maybe.

    I also found the monkey playskool gobots figure.

    The only problem with finding TF's at garage sales is that they're usually missing pieces,although you can generally get them very dirt cheap.

    I got a near complete Armada Unicron for $8.00.He was only missing the mini-con and the two attachments that hold his wings on.

    At another garage sale I bought a whole tub of TF's for $25.It had some Energon,Cybertron,and movie figures in it.The two best ones were a complete Classics Megatron and a Supreme Class Cybertron Starscream(missing his crown).

    I ounce found PowerMaster prime wearing Apex Armour at a What we call in the UK a car boot.

    Was in a joblot with an RID Optimus, Armada Galvatron and Tidal Wave. £10 for the whole lot.
    Due the condition Apex Prime could sell for more than that by himself. I missed that bargain though unfortunatly. I was younger and wasn't trusted with money but I still knew my TF's.

    I've never bothered with garage sales, I figure the odds of something worth getting (not beat to hell at least, I know it'll be missing parts) are too low. It's the same at flea markets most of the time, but occasionally I see something.

    I found a complete, never transformed ROTF Mixmaster for $5...never had an interest in him, but for $5, I bit. Not bad, but I'm glad I didn't buy him at retail price
