    Been slow going so far this year but Saturday was a big day of yard sales. One of the larger community sales in my area was today. I almost missed it, but something sparked me to look up when it was this year - Good thing because I found some nice buys...

    Started off with a small collection of Transformers:

    Selection of bookshelf strategy games:

    Box of late 60's/early 70's Hot Wheels cars:

    Huge, overflowing tub of Legos:

    Also a few misc items like a high power extention cord, 2 magazines for a Baretta 9mm, a copy of Death Race 2000 on DVD, and a table & 3 chairs for the backyard patio.

    All together, cost less than $100. Not a bad morning.

    Anyone else have any luck?

    I went to a flea market the other week in the UK - got a G1 Brawl and the tank half of Flywheels for about 50 cents. Saw a few other TFs but passed because they were all junkers.

    It may seem backwards, but the Jet & Tank make up Flywheels. Battletrap is a truck and copter.
