    Well, let me tell you all where my collection started. I am a Star Wars nerd mainly. I am in the 501st legion, I just completed my set of vintage figures yet I keep on buying, I have SW stuff all over my house, my daughetr is even named after a character, haha

    Well, one day I was looking at toys on craigslist and found a star wars lot for $50 that looked like a good deal. I contacted the seller, told him I wanted them and asked if he had anything else. He told me he had a box of transformers for an additional $30 if I were interested. I was stuck at work so I had a friend of mine go grab everything. I told him to bring $80 just in case the TF lot was good. Well, the star wars lot was fantastic, but the TF lot BLEW IT AWAY. These are a few pics of what I picked up in that lot. This isnt everything, I still have not taken pics of a lot of it, or a lot of the newer items I picked up, so I will update this as I do. What do you guys think?

    Here is the old display which I am currently revamping

    I apologize about the pics, I am still learning how to use this camera. I saw there is a section dedicated to photography, so I will see if I can pick up some pointers there

    Soundwaves weapons were in his battery storage area (took me a month to look for them there) Devastator is now 100% complete, as is Defensor and every other bot you see in those pics.

    I just completed a Piranhacon, Abominus, and am now working on Predaking and Superion. I have also picked up all of the dinobots (3 complete), boxed shockwave, mib unused parts thundercracker, and a few other goodies

    Shit I misread. I thought he only got "a few of" those things for 30 bucks, but reading it again...

    Great pictures, makes you appreciate how awesome the designs of those toys are. The cheap looking stuff from today just doesnt compare.
    What a great find for $30!
