    Big community sale this weekend. Was going for about 4 hours non-stop...

    Toy-wise bought a big tub of recent Transformers - It wasn't cheap, but almost everything is complete and in great shape. Also found some Legos, an old slot car set, a couple of cases full of old Turtles figures (plus a few vehicles), and a Crossman slingshot.

    Anyone else have any luck?

    Nice finds.

    I was able to get about a dozen and a half FP Adventure People spacemen, aliens, Optronix robot, sea divers, and a handful of vintage Star Wars figures for $.25 a piece. Other than that it was slim pickings this week.

    Last time I found some TF action at a yard sale, I found a few MOSC g2 gobots. Mirage, Optimus (as a Ferrari type car), and Ironhide. $.50 a pc.

    Got a GI Joe TigerForce Ferret (4 wheeler) for $1. Also got G1 Galvatron's gun for free.

    Found an insane moster GIJoe collection (1982-1984 years) for $40. Still going through it. What is super rare is pretty much everything had the instructions/blueprints, special offers, catelogs. I'll post pictures when I get it more sorted.

    That sounds like a sweet find. I haven't found anything really good GIJoe wise in a couple of years.

    Hey, if you don't want that TMNT Foot Soldier, i'll buy it from you. Since it appears NECA won't ever release their Foot Soldier/Shredder, i'll have to depend on those.

    LMK if your interested in selling it.

    I was at a garage sale this morning, something like 100 houses in one neighborhood, I didn't even see a single Transformer, closest I found was some Bionicle stuff.

    After a few weeks of nice TF finds the car boot sales the last week or so have thrown up nothing but a lonely boxed G1 jigsaw for 50p. Considering the good weather at the weekend meant there were the most stalls so far this year finding nothing TF at all over the four car boot sales was an utter bummer.

    I don't think it's an extra so I'd like to keep it with the set for now. But I still see turtles figures relatively often... I'll keep an eye out for another.
