    I would say any of the Masterpieces as they generally won't be given to small children to play with/break. However, having said that, in the UK sightings thread recently one guy said he saw an MP Prime at a car boot sale with no head and some other miscellaneous damage, so go figure...

    Maybe a lucky draw would be an almost impossible junker find. A genuine one I mean.

    Broken Robot Heroes. They are pretty tough.

    I'd also say its unusal to find any collector sided toys in junker places, like thrift stores or good will. Things like the Classics line or Alternators.

    Most any Japanese TF from the G1 era.

    I got a DVD version Hasbro MP Optimus from a carboot sale last year. Can't remember what it cost me. I think it might've been £8, with a FAB Bay Blackout thrown in. The Optimus was in bits but when I assembled him he was only missing the head cover for his back and mini Megs. Even got his gun, axe and talking base.

    I'd say an MISB Brave Max.

    I'm waiting for the poor misguided grandma selling off her kids things that puts a 'robot toy' sticker on it and $20.

    Actually, I've found G1 Japanese toys that I'd consider "junker" grade at thrift and used toy stores. Star Sabre, Victory Leo, Dai-Atlas, Sonic Bomber... Also found a stripped Euro market AM Elite Windmill at a flea market.

    If it's MISB, it's not really a junker, is it?

    But I've also found a Brave Max at a flea market. Had about half of it's parts, most importantly Cerebros.

    I don't think you'll ever find a junker marlboor lancia, at least not for a reasonable price.

    Also, the part that I don't think you'll ever find to complete a transformer is the purple windguard that sits on top of shattered glass prime. If you lose that, you're never replacing it.

    Dude, at my local thrift stores I'm lucky to find friggin junker Go-bots. :D 

    If I'm ever in VA, let me know where you're seeing this stuff.

    Also to further contribute to this thread, I just thought of another highly unlikely junker: Henkei Wildrider.
