    Rework, you must have endless boxes of TF-junk with all your large finds. Nice with the yellow CJ and the shockwave barrel this time! No luck on the ad I posted in my parents`local rural newspaper by the way.

    THX, I have about 4 large boxes of junkers - And that's after bringing tubs to unload at the last 2 Botcons...

    Running ads is real hit and miss... You may get nothing or may hit the jackpot... Although with all the movie hype, there's a chance that anyone responding would want WAY too much for what they have....

    Hmm.....I wander if we've had our yearly garage sales yet. I'll have to ask my mother if we have or not. If we haven't, I'll be on the lookout for any Bruticus parts, specifically RID Ruination if possible.

    Edit: Just asked her, and we haven't had them yet. I hope I can find some TF stuff. If not only to sell/trade it on here.

    5 pages - Almost 6... Not any more tho' - Nice haul.

    For a board with so much traffic, it's a shame they can't handle more threads per page...

    yeah, they should make one thread a sticky for each week saying something like
    "Weekly Flea Market, and Yard Sale Finds."
