    I got a call from a buddy today. He was at a little hole in the wall flea market here in town and he said he found a box of Transformers. Being a non-collector, he didn't know what he was looking at so I went down to look. I was pleasently surprised by the box of goodies...for $10! You can see why:

    Oh yeah, that's a bunch of Fort Max parts in the upper left corner including Spike!:

    And two things I don't recognize, anybody have any ideas:

    Is Prime missing an arm?

    Yeah :( 

    He's not really good for anything except tires. Fortunatly, I already have an original. I'll probably toss this one unless somebody here wants it.

    Nice find, the figures are all crap, but the accessories more than make up for it. The best of the bunch are Onslaught who's missing all of his access. but isn't broken, and Shrapnell who has only one of the yellow insect legs broken and missing a gun.

    He's got a broken arm, but it's fixable with another junker. But the Fort Max and other combiner parts are what made this well worth the money.

    Not a bad haul for ten bucks, the Jetfire seems to be in good enough shape.

    I need to start hitting up flea markets and yard sales and stuff, see if I can nab any deals..since I usually hit toy shows where people actually know the value of an item or scalp shit.

    Nice work. For Spike, Onslaught, and those bruticus pieces, that's sweet.

    I miss the flea markets around here. We had great ones too. Used to get all my Genesis imports cheaper and earlier than the domestic releases.

    Wow. That was WAY more than worth it for the Fort Max parts alone. Especially Spike; I've seen him alone go for $90. Nice one.

    Very nice haul there. I would'nt trash the Prime either, give it to a kid you know, a lot of times they look past something thats slightly broken. I gave my nephew a G1 Optimus that was missing 3 tires and he plays with it all the time. Practically carries it with him where ever he goes...Oh course this kids dad played with a Spiderman head(yes, just the head) that he found in a street drain when he was a kid, so maybe the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

    The Fort Max parts alone could fetch around $200. Nice find.

    Sorry dude, Fort Max is my Grail. Since I don't have the money to buy a whole one, I'm most likely going to use all these parts.
