    Last weekend of what's been a slow summer. Not a lot of Transformers worth picking up, but got a nice load of Mini-cons. There were a few others that were too overpriced and/or beat up to pick up. Bought a huge lot of games. I was looking at a few and the guy made me an offer to take the whole lot... One too good to refuse.

    About 16 Minicons, plus a few for parts
    3 Legends TFs
    MW Megaplex, no gun
    Die-Cast 6" Voltron
    12 Transforming Letters
    Transformer Electronic Intercom set, with box

    $45 box lot of RPGs & Wargames including:
    D&D boxsets Birthright, Night Below, Tale of the Comet, Ravenloft Requiem, Ravenloft Nightmare Lands, Planetscape & Outland
    Gammarauders
    Gangbusters
    Top Secret
    Traveller, Megatraveller, Traveller 2300 & Twilight 2000
    Masquerade
    Star Fleet Battles
    Blue Max
    Shatterzone
    Cyberpunk
    Warp World
    In Nomine
    Stack of Warhammer Books & Codex

    [​IMG]

    Total Cost: About $58

    Anyone else have any luck?

    I actually went to a flea market and about 5 garage sales this weekend, but didn't find anything neat.

    I'm usually a bit jealous of the stuff Rework manages to find at flea markets, but since this weekend I found a really cool Iron Man toy, as well as a decent amount of Dr. Fate comics (including one I've been needing and one I never knew existed) I'm pretty content with my haul :D .

    There have been a lot of yard/garage sales in my neighborhood recently, but usually the only toys I find are for my 18 month old son. All I found this weekend worth mentioning was the car/shell for G1 Pretender Gunrunner and MOTU Roboto. Missed a full size Voltron by a couple minutes, but the kid who got him looked happy with it.

    RIGHT ON CUE :lol 

    Still, I'm totally jealous. Even if it was in awful condition (was it? I don't remember), it's still the TF deal of the freakin century.

    actually it is in wonderful condition, it is pretty white, if yellowed it is barely yellowed at all, nothing broken, just missing parts that is all, and for the body all that is missing is one waist gun, it even had spike

    mainly missing cog, cerebros, and the two main arm ramps

    I'd hate to see the yard sales here in about 10 years...in my little neighborhood there are about 315 0-4 year old girls...no little boys anywhere in sight. Barbies and ML Ponies FTW!!! Or not. At least my little one has a couple of TFs.
    My block will be popular come 2023 or so.

    Funny you ask. Although we didn't get the cat at a flea market, we did get it at the county animal shelter on the way home from a flea market!

    Yes, even my cat was bought used - Got a great deal on him, though!

    I went to a couple of yard sales last weekend and here is what I found:

    I also got a G1 Soundwave missle and a few G.I. Joe backpacks/missles that aren't pictured. I paid $10 total for everything. Most of the G1 stuff is dirty and has rusty screws (some are broken), but I can't complain given what I paid for them.

    Can anybody tell me what I got in the second picture? I know the bikes are Mask vehicles, but I know next to nothing about the Gobots stuff. Most of them are stamped Bandai so I assume they are Gobots. I have no idea what the 4 limbs on the lower right are from. All of the stuff from the second picture was in the box with the G1 stuff that I bought.

    Not saying it can't happen... But you'll need some luck. Holiday weekends tend to be tougher.
