    That pisses me off to no end. There isn't a flea market to be found around here that has Transformers merchandise. The only thing I've ever found locally has been a Bludgeon Pretender Shell that I found in the Salvation Army for $.50.

    We have flea markets out the sphincter around here. The larger ones carry TF stuff, but its usually overpriced. I did, however, run into a bunch of G1 TF accessories at a local Salvation Army Thrift Store (wheeljacks rocket launchers, Dinobot launcher, Sideswipe's launcher, and a few other items, all for 25 cents apiece.

    Nice score, especially the Interchangeables guy. I went garage saling this weekend and scored a G1 Gnaw with no accessories with a huge box of TMNT, Ghostbusters, Sectaurs, Gargoyles, Batman and other figures. This is the 3rd Gnaw I've found garage saling and I still can't make up a complete one!

    Went to a doll show over the weekend as well and picked up a bunch of other vintage non Transformers figures:

    1. Six Million Dollar Man Maskatron (missing cloths, shoes & suction cup arm) $15
    2. Pulsar Hypnos complete $10
    3. Centurions Ace McCleod and Skybolt (missing a few parts) $7
    4. Super Powers Green Lantern, Wonder Woman & Superman no accs. $3
    5. A-Team MIB Mr T doll $15
    6. Muppets Miss Piggy MIB dress up doll $15
    7. WWF LJN Brian Blair loose & mint $1

    At the flea markets I scored:

    1: Gobots Rogun $5
    2: COPS MOC figure (can't remember the name) $3

    Not really much this week Transformers wise, ah well!
