    Yesterday, I found a complete Ultimate Bumblebee there for 20 dollars. Recently, I found a TF Cybertron Legends 4-Pack and Robot Heroes w/ Optimus vs. Unicron.

    I did a recent search and wanted to know if any one ever found something really nice, recent product, not just old stuff at a garage sale or something.

    Wait, Ultimate Bumblebee for $20? WTF! No really. How the heck did that end up there?

    Yea, I know, probably fell off the back of the truck.

    Not due to a lack of trying, but no luck so far.

    I found an Unleashed Turn-around Optimus Prime statue for $9.99, 'new' & still in (a rather beat up) package...

    Some Goodwills get 'new' product from Target stores & the like (their returns & clearance product), so it's more than likely that this is how the 'new' Transformer figures wind up there... But Ultimate Bumblebee for $20... Wow, now THAT'S lucky! Congrats, I'm jealous!

    Not a tf, but I found a MIB NES for $25. I didn't even have to blown on the carts to get them to work it was so minty. I also found the old F-14 from G.I. Joe, but it was missing most of the parts and the cockpit was broken so I passed.

    I found a potf millenium falcon for $20. I took in some batteries to make sure the electronics worked. when the clerk came back to check on me and I said they didn't, she went in the back to ask the manager if she could "help me out." came back and asked how $10 sounded. I was like, sounds great to me!

    I took it home, took it apart, jiggled some wires, worked perfectly!

    I thought they donated some of the money they make to disavantaged people/groups. So isn't purchasing things there helpful, and non-crappy, you know good?

    Anyway, I found a G1 Swindle at a PTA thrift store. It had no accessories, but I had no complants, seeing that it was only fifty cent.

    It's a different story if you have kids. Gives them something to tear up besides your collection.
    Plus Ive donated a ton of baby stuff too them

    Ive already stepped on half of those in the middle of the night
