    I don't normally go through the TF listings when browsing, opting to just search for whatever item I'm seeking at that moment. However, for whatever reason I decided to do a newly listed filtered search and I ran across these 3 auctions:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200183496810&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=010

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200183503548&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=010

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200183507713&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=010

    While I already have a complete loose (plastic) Predaking, I simply could not pass up such beautiful G1 TFs at that price, esp. since the box was present and in some cases unapplied stickers. Seller has low feedback (but good) so I may be taking a chance so we'll see.

    I should also note the same seller had a boxed Grimlock for $23 as well as a boxed Decepticon clones for $26 and I believe 2 of the 3 boxed Insecticons. Of course all of these will be snatched up pretty quickly if they haven't already.

    Na, I got outbid and I wasn't around to watch the auction in it's final minutes. Only went for $36. I never should have sold the one I originally had b/c he's so freakin' hard to find. At least I was able to pick up Drancon last week on Y!J auctions for a 1000 yen.

    I did manage to win Cybershark from selleronwheels though. Always wanted a JPN packaged specimen of him.

    Those are some really good deals. Ive found that deals like that can be easily found from sellers who have low to no feedback. People are too afraid to take a chance. But with paypal and credit cards watching your back, why not?

    paypal dont watch your back at all with a seller who has less than 50 positive feedbacks. and even then it sucks. but credit cards are awsome.

    Thanks for the link. I nabbed Pounce and Wingspan with the box, instructions and unused sticker sheet (only missing three guns) for $26. I'm a happy camper.

    He has Rampage listed now. I'd hit it if not for the fact I'd have to track down the other 4. Can't stand a lone combiner.
