    Holy shit, I am having like the best week ever (also, probably one of the most expensive as well).

    I just nailed down 2 grails in one week. Pics to come soon, once I have them shipped.

    1- I got a Botcon '07 Alpha Trion for like a 1/2 of what you see it on EBay for.

    2- I just nailed down a MP Thundercracker for get this. $105!! WTF!

    MP-07 Masterpiece Thundercracker - Transformers Masterpiece Masterpiece at BigBadToyStore

    The figure is a 90 and the stickers have never been applied. So I am hoping it will be in great condition. But how the hell is that priced $105!?!

    Yeah, I mean I have been looking for him for eons. I just was very unwilling to spend $400 that I was seeing it go for. That was insane.

    I wonder why the TC is so cheap. I am keeping my fingers crossed hoping it is not messed up. But the figure being a 90 would tell me it won't be. I hope.

    I thought from your title you were having a sick week as in, a week where you didn't have to work aka, spend forever more time on forum and I was like "oh crap..."

    And then I read the post and was like, oh good.

    You love me and you know it exomega. YOU KNOW IT!

    And so you know, I spend more time on the Forum when I am at work then whenever I am home. Wife has me doing all type of stuff whenever I am home.

    What's with all the hate anyway? :lol

    You and I don't agree on a lot of things. Although no hard feelings. My post above was merely a tease just for fun ;)

    Yeah, I know.

    TBH, I don't agree with some of my closest friends on things. I find that I learn the most from people who disagree with me. Always gives me a different way to think of things.

    I always respect what you write as it makes good sense, and you don't get enraged. So I just wanted to make sure it wasn't true hate. LOL. Just a bunch of ball busting.

    Yeah, I pretty much gave up on him. That's why I got the custom made. But at $105, I couldn't pass this up.

    I just need to relax for like a couple of months on purchases after this. I am seriously spending a bit to much. But if there is one thing I learned collecting is that I need to jump on this now. If I don't, I am done.

    Pretty much. But watch. You say a couple of months, and within a few weeks, you're gonna see something/ come across something that will tempt you so bad.......:tongue:

    Stop it. I know I will, but I will need to say no!

    Realistically, the only thing that I think I will be tempted to act on is a iGear Ark set. If I see one of those around $100, I will act. Besides that, I really cannot see what I am going to go for.

    The only things I said I was going to get regardless is the Insecticons and Heavylabor. So while that is another damn $200, I cannot do more besides that. Argh.

    Nice SSancho!

    I didn't realize you did G1 stuff.

    BTW, are you and 48+2 the same? I thought 48+2 was you for whatever reason.

    I know I know. Damn Plastic crack.

    The funny thing is, this time 2 weeks ago I was like, "you know what, I will never find these grails. And those Insecticons won't be out for a while. Hercules won't be completed till next year. I need to collect something else."

    So I went ape shit and started collecting figures based on the comics. The good thing is they weren't that expensive, but in hindsight, I could have passed at this point.

    Granted in like a month I would be sitting here like, I really need to collect those Comic figures.

    Sweet.

    I just pinned down a MISB 25th Anniversary OP for half it usually sells on Ebay. Mind you that's left me with ten bucks to pay for anything for the next three days. Oh well.

    48+2 was someone else that I use to talk to also, but now I forget who. LOL.

    That's a great price on the Brave Max. Was he 100%?
