    So I'm trying not to entirely gloat about my week here, but after going to my local Walmart and TRU for weeks and only finding the Sea of Bees, I finally lucked out in my efforts to find anything worthwhile! Firstly, I went to Walmart on Monday and browsed the TF aisle even though I had a grand total of $3 to spend on figures, and what do I see? Voyager Dreadwing staring me in the face, mocking my lack of money and telling me that he would be gone tomorrow. In my temporary insanity, I hid him and went back the next day to pick him up once I had money. He was still there, thank Primus.

    Cut to yesterday, Saturday. I occasionally go to my local TRU and see a swarm of yellow (I kid you not, they had 3 whole pegs full of about 8 BB figures each) and what do I see amidst the swarm of yellow? The lone GDO figure on the pegs, Springer. The only one I really wanted from the case assortment. Best of all, since I'm assuming he should be about $17-18 due to TRU marking up exclusives and generally everything, since he wasn't in the system yet, they charged me the price of a normal Generations Deluxe!

    Now I'm sure this is gonna mean that I'm not gonna find anything I want for another couple months, so I'm taking all this in stride.

    Anyways, have any of you guys had awesome weeks like this?

    EDIT: 1000th post!

    my best friend ordered a birthday present for me that didn't come in on time a couple months back. we finally hooked up again last weekend for his wife's bday, and he pulled out a amazon jp box...

    he ordered me AM prime terrorcon cliffjumper & skywarp :D 
    2 figures I always admired in pics but never would have bought myself. now skywarp is out of stock most places, cliffy is pretty scarce too. I considered that a pretty lucky day. :)

    This Sunday, Hasbro employees were having a special offer at a mall in the Philippines, and they were selling the GDO Voyagers, Prime Thundertron and Ultra Magnus, Some Prime Cyberverse figures, some Prime: Robots in Disguise/First Edition Vehicons and the GDO Deluxes as a set of 4. I went there to get the deluxes, but I couldn't come early. I was lucky because there were only 2 sets of deluxes left, and I was able to buy one of them :D

    Everyone has a lucky day/week/whatever. Mine was a guy at work giving me over a dozen TFs from his childhood, all I had to do was clean them. They were quite dirty, which is why they were free, I suppose.

    Last lucky break was awhile ago for me...found a kid and his mom selling an almost show complete line of energon figs on craigslist for $75 back in May. Almost every figure from the show with the exception of Omega Supreme, Optimus and Brutus Maximus in almost perfect condition. All so he could invest in a PS Vita. Kids nowadays...

    For me my last lucky break came just last weekend. When I got TF Movie one leader Optimus Prime for the grand price of $6.00. Only part missing was the gun, which I know issues about.
