    Outback, no gun
    Pretender robot for Birdbrain
    Classics Astrotrain
    Alternators Tracks
    Primus
    Unicron, no minicon
    Cyb Metroplex
    Eng Omega Supreme, missing some flaps
    Cyb Defence Red Alert
    Sky Shadow
    Crumplezone
    Dark Crumplezone
    Arm Thundercracker, no minicon
    Arm Skywarp
    Cyb Skywarp
    Arm Galvatron, no missiles
    Arm Scavenger
    Arm Red Alert, missing windshield
    Cyb Menasor, no minicon

    Arm Demolisher, no m/c
    Arm Hoist
    Arm Thrust, missing back plate

    Various Minicons
    4 Legends toys
    SWTF Falcon
    SWTF Imp Shuttle
    SWTF Sith Inflitrator
    SWTF Jedi Fighter
    2 Playskool Gobots
    SuperGobot Staxx
    A few additional junker TFs

    Are you just asking that for real, or do you like to tease people?

    How in the hell are you able to find both a Unicron and a Primus at the same time?

    Well, they were in the same tub... Perhaps that explains why all the other toys in there were so badly disassembled!

    Yes I will - At the next Botcon I set up at!

    Although, a lot of these are not extras... I rarely open my boxed toys, so this is the 1st time I've gotten to play with a bunch of these.

    They haven't even announced where the next one is! It could be in California...

    Though if it is, I probably won't be setting up as a dealer. It's too expensive to ship all this stuff cross country.

    Actually, the only real RUMOR regarding Rhode Island was that it most definitely would NOT be there.

    The other talk is just fans thinking it'd make sense for it to be there again, with the movie premiere.

    The only real rumors we've heard of are Detriot, California, Chicago, and Orlando.

    I would love Orlando.

    How you find a boxed G1 Jetfire... thats just crazy. I've been really wanting to try and hit garage sales but I really like to sleep late on weekends heh.

    Yes... I think I've only slept late on a weekend about 4 times since May... And that's been mornings when it was raining.
