    Did some yard sales this morning.

    Found some Transformers (and a few other toys), none 100% complete, but all servicable:

    Found a small acrylic display case, 24" x 13" x 6" - Will be great for Botcon:

    Also found a 4' tall display cabinet. Seller said he used it for NASCAR toys, but it should work good for TFs if I can find a place to put it:

    And at the end of the day, came across this gem for a couple of bucks. The parts are all still sealed in the baggies and it appears to have all the parts... Even if something is missing, the minifigs are there and they are half the value!

    Picked up a handful of other things - A few DVDs, Madden '03 for Gamecube/Wii, some dress shoes (never even worn), a set of Kirby Vac accessories... All told spent about $80, I guess.

    Anyone else have any luck?

    so jealous for that Omega Supreme and Yellow Overload. Scourge and Scorponok are great figs too and they seem like they're all in shiny new condition!

    cool Exo-squad too!

    Nice - I've gotten pretty much zip in the way of GiJoe so far this year... Not even newer stuff. I think one yard sale had a bunch of Sigma series but it was mixed into a big box of assorted action figs and I wasn't interested in trying to dig through and figure out the parts.
