    Post what your cheapest haul, rarest find, or anything you consider to be your best experience purchasing or receiving transformers. it could be from ebay, craigslist, garage sale, or anything you want

    mine is probably getting 3 G1 figs including 1 complete ramjet all for free from my best friends uncle. Oh ya and he threw in super spay-c and spoons as well.

    My best deal would be from Craigslist.

    I bough 18 Transformers for $50. I kept the following:

    Reveal The Shield - Deluxe - Perceptor (complete)
    Reveal The Shield - Deluxe - Wreck-Gar (complete)
    Reveal The Shield - Battle In Space - Hot Rod (Missing Martix of Leadership)
    Reveal The Shield - Battle In Space - Cyclonus (missing nightstick)
    Generations - Deluxe - Blur (missing left gun)
    Generations - Deluxe - Scourge (complete)
    Generations - Deluxe - Red Alert (complete)
    Generations - Deluxe - Thundercracker (complete)

    I sold:

    $15 - Generations - Deluxe - Wheeljack

    And the following for $40
    Generations - Deluxe - Dirge (broken leg and missing blasters)
    Generations - Deluxe - Kup (missing the pieces that look like 7's for the knees)
    Generations - Deluxe - Turbo Tracks (complete)
    Generations - Deluxe - WFC Bumblebee (missing kibble and horrible paint job)
    Generations - Deluxe - WFC Optimus Prime (with a horrible paint job)
    Universe - Vector Prime (missing everything except sword)
    Universe - Bruticus (Horrible Paint job)
    RTS - Deluxe - G2 Optimus Prime (complete)
    RTS - Deluxe - Jazz (scratch on the paint / complete)

    So I ended up getting $5 to take 8 transformers that I needed for my classics series.
    Everyone came out happy and felt like they got a deal so it was all good to me.

    Hmm I have a few memorable purchases. My rarer purchases, I remember buying a case fresh MISB El Greco C9.5+-C10 Defensor a year or so ago for $550....A few days ago I just made a deal for Lucky draw Silver Chrome Optimus Primal for $430....Happy days. For something more common, I got Jetwing Prime for under $100 at just $99 :p

    Back sometime around 1998, a friend of mine sold me:

    - Galvatron
    - Devastator
    - Predaking
    - Ravage
    - Skywarp
    - Metroplex
    - Jetfire
    - Perceptor

    All of them complete for $200.

    But probably my best TF purchase ever was a complete Grand Maximus for $450.

    My most memorable haul was buying 2 of the TFA Sunstorms exclusives from Target for $5 each that I later traded for a brand new Music Label Blue Soundwave and a MOSC Henkei Astrotrain.
