    So I have never gotten truely lucky on a lot...until today.

    I bid on the following auction in order to get the starscream stickers. I have some minty first run seekers including starscream and the stickers are so hard to find. So I felt I overbid this but wanted it bad. It stated and showed the following:

    Shockwave, somewhat busted with rough box
    kickback with gun and box
    topspin box only
    some paperwork including the starscream stickers, looked like the whole packet.

    Then the message I got from the seller after it was shipped was that he threw in some nice surprises.


    This was included.

    Not pictured but included was:
    - the full starscream packet, catalogs, instructions (the insignia stickers were the earlier more cutout variants which was perfect!
    - unused sticker sheets for kickback, topspin, and the skids
    - prowl, topspin instruction books

    oh yeah....and this guy

    It's a good day. The best part is I was only this bumblejumper and F1 dasher from completing both of the first 2 years g1.

    :lolol 

    Two years later and it's still an impressive story, esp with how mint that Bumblejumper is/was.
