    I what was probably my season finale, I picked up a nice load of toys and more at a local rummage sale. I snagged pretty much all the Transformers, some MMPR, and a bunch of other stuff. Was a bag full of GIJoe figs, but someone else snagged that. And most of the Lego toys were snapped up before I could get a chance at them.

    Transformers and the like (incomplete unless noted):
    Skullcruncher
    Snapdragon
    Hun-gurr
    Sinnertwin
    Cutthroat
    Blot
    Injector (comp)
    BW Insecticon (comp)
    Arm Smokescreen
    Cindersaur
    Overrun & Slugfest
    Dirge body
    Blitzwing body
    Universe Blades
    Headmasters for Snapdragon & Apeface
    Ultimate BB
    Topspin
    Swindle
    Strafe
    Cyc Cyclonus
    2 TF Jedi Fighters
    Bumper Battler Op
    2 Rock Lords
    Super Gobot Psycho
    Voltron II red bot
    Various MMPR parts

    6 Thundercats figs
    D&D Warduke, 2nd ed
    Robotech Zor figure
    3D Bluestreak Puzzle
    Set of 4 GiJoe Battle Mural Puzzles
    Air Hogs Dominator NIB
    2 small Lego sets
    2 Warhammer comic Graphic Novels
    3 Dinky Die Cast toys (Circa WW2)
    Ertl B1 Bomber
    8 Slot Cars
    1 Bakugan
    Slap Chop, NIB
    Louis Marx figure
    DVD sets: West Wing 1-4, Gilligans Isle S2, Shogun Miniseries, Stargate SG1 S1
    Effanbee baby doll (Normally don't pick up dolls, but I rescued this from the garbage bin – It looked old but other than the broken string, it was in real nice shape. After some research this could be from the late 1920's or 30's and might be worth some nice cash once restrung.)
    Box full of mixed Brio/Ikea/LittleTree wood train toys (for my 5YO)
    Box full of old sports trading stickers, a few cards and other collectibles (Even has an OJ Pin-up!)

    There was some housewares and a few clothes picked up as well. Total for the stuff about was about $65.

    The "other stuff" has a Shogun Warriors Great Mazinga. The blue guy is part of Albegas, one of the robot combiners that was a "Voltron" in the US. Small claw guy is a Gobot as is the orange rig.

    Not too much at all... My son loves those McD food-formers. Never even seen one in still in the package. Unusual for Happy Meal toys so old.

    That's the main reason I bought them (even though I already have a bunch) - I haven't seen one sill in the package either. I usually just give them to my daughter for her play kitchen.

    Just curious Rework - why do you think that this past weekend was your season finale? Is it because there aren't that many yard sales/rummage sales in the winter?

    Is there anything that you do different in the winter than the spring/summer/fall months? Like go to auctions or anything?

    Once the weather turns cold, the yard sales and flea markets close down. Everything here I go to is outdoors.

    There is still one thrift store by me that sells toys... The rest panicked and stopped selling them after all the lead paint regulations came down. Other than that, I get to sleep in on weekends during the winter.
