    Well, despite being out playing pool til about 2am on Saturday, somehow I managed to get myself out to the flea markets yesterday running on about 3 hours of sleep. It was too nice a day to pass on and I hadn't managed to get out in about 3 or 4 weeks - Such is my burden!

    Anyway, it was worth the effort. Not so much on the way of TFs (though I found some), but I picked up a nice pile of 80's Joe figures and a pile of older TMNT figures. Plus a bag of Legos which I will amazingly turn into Transformers through the magic of trading!

    My biggest buy, however, was not toys. I was looking through a large plastic tub of CDs - Rather nice selection: plenty of modern and 80's rock - Metallica, Tool, U2, Nirvana, RATM, Pearl Jam, Crue, KISS and lots more. A lot of stuff I didn't have. She tells me that they are $1 each, or I can take the whole thing for $48... I laughed at first and then thought about it... There had to be well over 100 CDs there... Most of them decent - Of course there's a few coasters like a Yanni, a John Tesh & a Celine (seriously, who listens to this crap!?!?!?!?!)... But overall, I ended up with about 160 CDs at about 30 cents each. Oh and as a bonus, there were 5 PS1 disks in there, too.... Not that I own a PS1....

    Anyway, what I got:
    Snaptrap, no accys
    Seaspray
    G1 Strafe, no accys
    Rhinox, missing tail & 1 mace
    RID Mini Optimus
    ARM Blurr, no accys
    ARM Demolisher, no missiles (has M/C)
    G2 Slag, needs repairs
    2 Playskool Go-Bots
    1 McBW Blackarachnia
    Inferno/Grapple gun
    Snarl laucher
    Ransack (G1) gun
    Bristleback's gun
    Few Tonka Gobots & 1 Rock Lord
    Green Voltron Lion, no head
    3" Mazinga, damaged
    Un ID's transforming Jet

    About 30 GiJoe figures, with one bag of accy's
    About 25 TMNT figures, a few accy's
    Bag O' Legos

    Tub O' CDs ($48)

    Total Cost (for the toys) $39

    Anyone else have any luck?

    Surprised that you're able to still find deals with the movie hype.

    "Hello, people call me Rework. Would you pretend selling your complete Fort Max for $5 so I can piss off my internet friend? I'll come back tomorrow to give you the other grand. Thanks!"

    My favorite rework quote went something along these lines:

    He was at my yard sale and was eying my Trypticon. He said something like, "Well, the three I have are all pretty nice, but this one is in especially good condition."

    I remember pulling a Tex Avery eyes-popping-out, chin-falling-three-stories "BWAAAAAAAAAUGH!?"

    Actually, wasn't that Rodimusminor? He beat me to your Trypticon...

    Besides. I think I had 5 at the time, not three... (Now I have three, I sold two at Botcon!)

    I couldn't remember who it was. I just couldn't fathom owning more than 1 Trypticon. :eek:
