    So while spending the day in my hometown of Fremont, I decide to stop by the local comic shop witch has been around for ages. I had come accross some comic book cards and figured he would be the person to tell me what they were and what they were worth... so why not stop?

    I get to talking with the guy, and explain that I'm more or less just a "Transformers Geek" and don't know anything about comics, he asks: "The toys or comics?", to witch I (obiviously) tell him the toys. I spent a little time talking about my collection and how I've almost been able to complete my G1 Metroplex and Trypticon, and when I mentioned Trypicon's name it was like a light went off in his head; he said hold on, jumped up, ran into his back room, and came out with this:

    [​IMG]

    and told me that I could "have it". He aperantly had Furman and/or Figura do a guest signing at his shop a few years back and they had about a thousand of these printed up for the event. He had a couple left over and this one had gotten damaged (notice the slight bending in the top left corner) and he was just getting ready to toss it. Guess I was just in the right place at the right time, it's not signed but it's still friggin awsum!

    I'm gonna put it in a frame and that shoud press that corner right out.

    EDIT: Ok, I just realized that there's nothing in there for size referance, it's a poster.

    Next time I'm in town I can stop by and see if he has anymore left, he made it sound like he did a least. I don't know what he's gonna want for one, he gave me that one for free cuz it was slightly damaged, but I can ask if you want and ship it to ya. Just cover the cost + shipping.

    EDIT: Oh hey, he has em up on his site for $10 a pop. http://www.ruppsworld.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=1207

    Oh and I was wrong, it was Pat Lee who did the signing

    EDIT: EDIT: Hey if any of you guys actually order one lemme know, I'm kinda curious how much business a simple post like this could drum up.
