    Put this in the toy thread so more people would see but please move it if it's more appropriate in another place.

    So, I was thinking that with a lot of stores dropping prices on their current stock of TF to clear room and a lot of internationals going to Botcon what's a good way get these cheap toys into their hands and avoid our brothers paying inflated prices in the dealer room. I remember 2008 when UK'ers were paying $20-$25 a pop for Big Daddy/Breakaway/etc when they were $10 across the country and last year dropping $40+ for Wreckgar when he could still be found for $20 (must have been the Weird Al affect). Any suggestions/ideas on if we should even try this and how to coordinate?

    I think these are the hot items for 2010. I can help some folks out if they let me know ahead of time.
    ROTF Mindwipe $26-$22 - I still see a decent amount of these
    ROTF Bludgeon $13-$22 - between the HTS sales and the TRU ones these are pretty easy to come by at a fair price.
    ROTF Recon Ironhide- $13-$22 - see Bludgeon
    ROTF Divebomb - $8-$5 - Skystalker's uncommon but if I look hard enough I can find this Divebomb
    ROTF HA Barricade - $33 - Not as common but I still see these here and there at Targets and Walmarts.
    ROTF Legends Devastator - $35
    MP Skywarp - $33-$18
    U2 Red Powerglide $28 - I know of one at a local Walmart
    U2 Skyfall $28 - I know of one at a local Walmart
    Animated Arcee $10-$13
    Animated Cybertron Ratchet $10-$13

    Maybe also these others
    U2 Countdown
    U2 Darkwind
    ROTF 2-pack Whirl/Bludgeon
    ROTF 2/3-pack Twins/Scavenger
    TRU Insecticons
    TRU Perceptor

    You should add U2 Hardhead on that list. That is becoming an expensive one. The only problem I would have is that people don't ask for absolutely perfect minty boxes. That would be hard to travel with.

    Great idea. I still haven't gotten animated arcee, and would love a way to get one for cost. Definitely keep this thread updated with people who can help with this stuff.

    And of course I read the thread title as, "Hooking up with each other at Botcon".

    I got an arcee that I am willing to sell at cost. Just hit me, just do not expect a perfect package as I am traveling with women.

    Will do. Don't need perfect packaging, I open mine any way. I like to save the cardbacks if possible, but if not thats no trouble.

    I didn't include Hardhead because I can't find him anywhere near me anymore. I might just move this offer to my sales threads if nobody has any better idea on how to organize this.
