    So today I went down to the Steel City Con. Tons of stuff there. I picked up for 35 bucks a G1 soundwave almost complete, and a g1 slag.


    They had a lot of others too, for decent prices.

    -G2 Grimlock ( missing lower left leg) $5
    -G2 Slag ( Good condition) $ 10
    -G1 Megs ( just himself) $45
    -G1 Prime (missing one piece, i forget what) $75
    -KO Shockwave (gun tip broken) $5

    and the list goes on.. very good show .. it comes back december 1-2 2007. I might go back tomorrow and try to score on some final day specials. Let me know if any of those I listed are a good deal or what I should be looking for. I'm a TF noob.

    Not bad. In particular the G2 Slag sounds like a good buy.

    I'm tempted to try to find a G1 Shockwave KO and paint it up something cool. Did it have the gun cover?

    I hate you for your soundwave haul....

    but for the rest, good job! (although the megs was a little high for no accs)

    It was Shackwave I'm pretty sure and the guys mightve had the gun cover somewhere. They had a huge bag of accs. so I might go back n try to complete my Grimlock, slag, and soundwave.

    Oh the same guys that had Shackwave also had for 5 bucks 2 Rodimus'. They were just weaponless. A couple decent Twin-Twists, Then I saw Blaster for 20, and all the tapes at another stand for 15 each (ehh). There was a lot of MIB/MISB, like pepsi primes, Omega, G1 Megs, Grimmy, but if i go tomorrow I'm going to try to buy a lot of parts and cheap figs so if i go out let me know if you need a piece to complete a fig.

    Hey I was there today too! It was much better than I expected.

    I was able to get a very nice MIB Omega Supreme, a complete Mirage and Soundwave, and a Skullcruncher only missing the gun.

    Geekee I think I saw you there. Were you asking the Groovy toys guys about the G1 prime? Cuz I saw a guy carrying around the Omega Supreme. No offense, but you were that bald guy with a lady right?

    I might go tomorrow too depending on when I wake up and if i have gas and money or not.

    I'm pretty sure no one bought it yesterday. Come out in December and pick some stuff up. I'm sure there will be much much more.
