    Dude, your slipping. Normally, you'd find this lot and pay only $20.

    Well, the MIB Gobots and carded DinoRiders pushed up the total. Those weren't from the typical flea market dealer. And the DVD set was another 6 bucks. $10 for the Legos... It adds up.

    Flea markets in NEPa are pretty much hit or miss (mostly miss) as far as TFs go, but a few weeks ago, all on one Sunday I picked up:

    G1 Omega Supreme (only missing track M) $10
    G1 Sideswipe (missing accs & 1 door) $2
    G1 Blaster (no accs but excellent shape) $5
    Unicron (junker, but whole body there) $5
    ...and the coup-de-gras...

    a zip-lock storage bag $6




    ...oh yeah the zip-lock had in it:

    HM Mindwipe (no accs but included HM)
    HM Brainstorm (no accs but included HM)
    HM Snapdragon (no accs or HM)
    and HM Apeface (no accs or HM)

    I drove home with a BIG smile on my face that day.:D

    Was hoping to score some cool Tfs this weekend at a local flea market. This place was at one point packed at every stall and toys were somewhat common, but now this place was so sad. Half the stalls were empty and no cool toys to be found. Damn economy :(

    Sorry, bought those for my own collection... Maybe that's why I don't feel like I spent so much more than usual... A lot of these items (Gobots, DinoRiders, Micronauts) are going into my own collection...
