    Been a while since I've had anything worth posting about... Transformer finds just aren't what they used to be...

    But hit a market early Saturday and found some G1s in a box. Actually looked kind of picked over, but still some decent stuff left and the guy gave me a decent price on the whole thing. Also got issue one of the DW comic series for a quarter and a related poster for free. Free is always good.

    Among other finds: All my action figures are cherry, Stephen Hawking in my library!

    Spent about $25 total on the toys (and there are a couple more AD&D figs not in the pic).

    Other observation: DVD prices just keep falling. Average rate was $2-$2.50 at flea markets and down to a $1 at yard sales. Between my wife and I we must have picked up about 25 DVDs! People still want $5+ for Wii games, though...

    Anyone else have any luck?

    That does seem to be the piece that everyone keys in on. It's in good shape, although the arms are more than a little on the loose side.

    I have to hit the local flea market. It kind of sucks but it's the only one I know about. Meant to hit it this weekend but just didn't have time. That's not bad for what you paid.

    The Sludge actually has a broken tail. Didn't even notice it until later. Shouldn't be a big deal... I'm 90% sure I have one in the junker box I can repair it with.
