    I got a 100% complete C9.9 minty Trypticon for $200 a couple years ago...maybe not the best price ever but it's the best deal I've gotten.

    Definitely some flea market Transformers (i.e., a G1 Soundwave with all its stuff for $10, but that was when I was four and I didn't think to buy it...).
    Cybertron Voyager Soundwave for $11 was nice.
    That's about it...
    Oh, and my Movie Voyager Blackout that I won on eBay for $35 :D

    A G1 Optimus Prime Toothbrush & holder still in box, unused @ the first minimum bid on eBay. Came to about $25 w/shipping.

    I'm gotten simliar deals on other G1 products this year. Stuff seems to be comming out of the woodwork because of the new Movie.

    Overall, best deals have been through eBay.

    Ebay:
    Near complete (Missing Headmaster) G1 Scorponok for $60 off of eBay.

    Stickers are pretty worn, and some chrome wear, but joints are all nice and tight. Got a repro Zarak, and now just need to get some reprolabels, and maybe some chrome paint to touch up the chromed clawguards.

    Plenty of $1 TFs at yard sales and flea markets but probably the best was G1 Metroplex with most of his accessories for $10

    C9+ MISB Beast Wars II C-16 (not RM) Exclusive Black Lio Convoy for $27. I bought a lot for 100+ just for this item. After selling off the rest of the lot, I ended up paying $27 for Black Lio Convoy.
