    I just started going to flea markets this summer and I love them.I always come home with something,but I don't know how you find so much good stuff all the time.

    Yesterday I found a Cybertron Leader Class Optimus Prime(missing the two red wings on his backpack) for $7.00,and a Target exclusive Universe Dirge(missing his gun/missile) for $3.00.

    Two weeks ago I found an Energon Wing Saber for $3.00,and an Energon Optimus Prime for $2.00.The cool part is that I had no idea that you could combine the two until I got home.

    I went to a local flea market on Sunday and found a guy with some SW stuff. I picked up a titanium Jedi Starfighter for $2 and my gf got a classic Cyclon raider for the same, both sealed. I also saw an Omega Supreme tank, missing the barrel but with working electronics (so he said) for $5, but I passed.

    My local flea market had about 15 or so G1 figures MISB. That was awhile ago though, they had Prime and a few minibots, and some others.

    Nice haul!

    But I'm a little sad now, since the heat dried out my local flea market. The only transformer I found on my last visit was an incomplete Crossovers Iron Man humvee. :(

    Same here. Saturday it was near 100 degrees and Sunday it rained all day. So no flea market for me this past weekend. Hoping for better weather this upcoming weekend.
