    After a great Botcon where there's cool toys at every turn, it's always a bit of letdown to return to flea markets where it takes some digging to find anything good... It was raining so I only hit one covered market this weekend. Here's what I found:

    Soundwave, no weapons
    Camshaft, no weapons
    Override, no weapons
    Skywarp body w/landing gear
    Buzzsaw's bird head
    Bombshell, damaged

    Bag of Lego people - Castle & Woodsman
    Cyclops & Jean Grey couples set
    Nerf Longshot
    2 sets of Jarts
    Little People Garage & misc parts
    Daitarn patrol car, motorized, missing some parts and battery cover

    Total Cost: About $34

    The woman with the TFs said she'd see if she can find any of the parts - We'll see next month.

    Anyone else have any luck?

    I can never find anything worth any value (that I know of anyway) at my local flea markets. It's rather sad.


    But that's an amazing haul you got there.

    Damn it! I look and look for a decent, relatively inexpensive for my fiancee and I can never find one! All the flea markets here are full of trash....I had so much luck at Texas graage sales back in the day, but CA.....Nice haul!

    Never. Everytime I try I never find anything TF related. Well except for some Spychanger ko's
    I think you have a natural gift for flea markets , or Im in the wrong town

    every time you ask if anyone else had any luck, the answer is always no. no flea markets except the ones around you have cool toys.
