    Look what I got from my local thrift store!

    Megatron has no accessories whatsoever, including ears. His turret is twisted and has stress marks, but he is still displayable. roddy's trailer has no stickers or blast shields. Torca is missing lower half. Not pictured is a beast wars mcdonald's toy. The best part about this haul is that it didn't run me past $4.50. :D  Then I recieved my lot of junkers from Asquian in the mail. This week was great! :D

    I used to get busted/incomplete TFs at thrift stores all the time, but I stopped doing that as restoring them ended up costing more than finding complete one on eBay and message boards.

    Yeah most parts sellers are gouging, I know of people that buy complete G1 toys to part out and then sell the bodies super cheap as they tripple their money on the parts alone.

    I usually just fix them up with anything I have at home. Or I look for parts here.:D  And yup, I think megs looks much better without his antlers. I'm using rodimus's trailer as a "battle wagon " for my minicons.:D
