    Back in May I wandered into a TRU and made a bee-line for the TF section hoping to find HA Barricade, but finding only BB and Skids... but upon closer investigation, I spotted something I didn't expect, a single HA Mudflap. I grabbed it immediately, took it to the counter, and it wouldn't scan, they had to call a manager to approve the sale! Further sightings of mudflap wouldn't start to pop up for a further 2 months, therefore I maintain that I am the first person, anywhere, to buy him at retail

    Back when TFA was first coming out.

    I spotted the Battle Begins two pack, the first wave of deluxes, and the first run of Voyagers with Megatron, Bulkhead, and Starscream.

    And inexplicably; one Grimlock in the back. Bought on sight.

    I found a Titanium Ultra Magnus at Target around when Titanium was trickling to an end. Not the WW Prime repaint, but the rarity that is going for upwards of $100 on Ebay and other sites.

    I also saw a couple of Skystalkers for the first time in retail about a month ago at Kmart.

    Wheelie

    A bunch of gobots, some broken galvatrons and a bunch of parts. And a Jetfire.

    This was all free btw and helped me get my collection going.

    I found all 3 G1 Insecticons (no weapons though) at a yard sale for $10 bucks. Joints are tight and the chrome is still in tact.

    The wife and I stopped at a garage sale on the way to a movie one day. It was completely random. The guy had a box full of G1 transformers. He wanted 8 bucks for the whole box, but I only had 5 bucks in cash on me. Luckily, he took it. I had no idea what was in it. Got it home it had a near mint grimlock, slag, and starscream and thrust. Also had some minicons, cosmos was the only one I knew the name of. But the coup de grat was that it had a near mint complete G1 devastator in it as well, with almost all of the weapons and whatnot.

    And I know this isn't TF, but a few years ago at a flea market I picked up a MISB (!) GI Joe Zartan w/ Swamp Skier with the schizo file card. This old lady had that and a MOSC Baroness. She wanted 100 for the Baroness. I asked how much for the Zartan and she smiled and said 40 dollars. I said how about 30. I got that shit for 30 bucks. Ha ha.
