    I just picked up a G1 Fort Max for $5, He was listed as a junker, but has almost all his pieces, and well junker or not I think that wa a pretty awesome deal.
    Does anyone else have any sweet deals that you have made and wanna brag about?

    Well I picked up my wife a few years ago and so far she has only cost me a few thousand pounds in ongoing maintenance so that is a pretty good deal to me :) 

    I got given a G1 Menasor, Cyclonus and Highbrow from a mate for the cost of a pint if that counts.

    well I have had many good deals but one I will never forget is finding around 1500 Camshafts and 1500 downshifts all factory sealed in factory bags for $1.99 each. I made a killing on those in the 90's

    My best deals.

    I bought a lot of 13 Alternators on this forum for $275. At the time the secondary market for Alts were red hot. I traded them all into BBTS for just under $500.

    I then bought a complete set of RobotMasters with all of their packaging on ebay for $100 shipped and traded them into BBTS for $300. I kept the Seekers for myself though. ;)
