    Been hitting a lot of Thrift Stores lately. Not a lot of TFs, but I've found some cool stuff.. A lot of it Ebay fodder... But still cool.

    2 Micromasters
    A few Star Wars figures
    Bag of 29 colored MUSCLE men
    Vectrex Video Game System w/ 5 cartriges - Works great
    New TMNT Turtle Lair playset, still in box
    Box of model rocketry stuff
    Large tub of Tony Hawk Skateboard toys
    Bag of Marvel Trading cards, Flair'94 & Wolverine series.

    Total Cost: About $40

    Anyone else having any luck?

    (And I'm hitting my first flea markets this weekend!)

    I found a two huge ziplock bags of joes stuff for $3.00. One is all accessories ( still need to sort and identify ) and the other was a bunch of 3 3/4 Joes. All of the Joes are in parts because the rubber bands broke. They are vintage '80s Joes, I just need to replace the bands and they might be worth something.
