    After seeing this thread,Alternators Garage sale, I wanted to hear everyone's stories of getting some awesome deals on their Transformers.

    My story is I got a mint on card Final Battle Jazz (Didn't matter, I don't keep the packages) for basically 6 bucks. At my local Auction House/Flea Market, there's a Transformers collector's/Hobby shop in one of the buildings. He was selling a Final Battle Jazz for 15 bucks. Earlier I bought a Beast Wars Rat Trap from a guy selling his kid's old toys in the flea market for a buck. The guy who owned the shop was missing it, and was prepared to buy it from me for 10 bucks in store credit. I just had to pay 5 more bucks for Jazz.Now the reason I bought Final Battle Jazz was that I didn't have a silver paint of the mold, and for his gun. The only other places online were selling it for 30 bucks. So I'm happy I got him for a great price.

    not so much a good deal as rattrap is a very tough figure to find (unless you're talking about tm rattrap or ew beast machines rat trap) but in the end as long as you got a toy you'll enjoy thats all that really matters.

    I actually didn't really like the look of Rat Trap. But it wasn't the Transmetal version. It was the original release, with the Activators-esque transformation. Plus it was in pretty bad shape, no gun, a lot of dust, didn't lock in right when you transformed it.

    finding him with his limbs is pretty tough, but again as long as you're happy thats all that matters.

    I know Ive seen a few since being a member here! Alot of times its easier to start a new thread rather than scroll through the pages and pages to create a zombie out of a dead thread.

    I got a very nice almost complete Reflector (just missing 2 small guns) non - KO for $45 at my local fleamarket. I still smile when I think about it. He is front and center in camera mode in my main glass display case!

    Games of Deception, the Botcon set with the rest of the seekers, for $90.

    I bought a blue ramble from a board member long ago , open and complete for $20.

    I still love the deal I got on the GoD set because I think the cheapest you can get it for is like $250:O

    Thanx
