    With my newfound love of eHobby exclusives, I,ve started scouring eBay on a daily basis to see what's up for grabs.

    This was recently listed and had a nice BIN... I took the bait and clicked!

    Seeing as I've seen these go for $60-$70 each, I thing I got myself a pretty decent deal. The supersized pics also helped my decision -- these look pristine!

    Does anyone have them? How are they?

    Yep, I got the TFC Sideswipe, G2 Sideswipe and Comm. Series Red Alert.

    When it comes to G1 molds, my 'no recolor' rule flies out of the window! :lol 

    As for Chromestreak and 'golden lagoon' Jazz, they're next on my eHobby want list :D

    IMO its a good deal that you got - especially considering that these were released quite sometime back.

    MAn... I wish I had the money to be chasing around the E-Hobby stuff, some of it really is cool. And those things look like they're in amazing condition.

    I was meaning to make a "deal" thread, after picking up a MISB Omega Sentinal for 4.50 at TRU the other day...

    :lol  I think I saw that same auction when it was listed and thought of your last thread. Yeah it's a good deal, definintely. Any ehobby for $50 or less is pretty good (except Hound, he can be had cheaper I think).

    There used to be a guy selling the black Perceptor for $60 or something, he had a bunch of them. I jumped on one since I wasn't to keen on dropping $80 for it. I'm sure you'll see if the guy is still selling them.

    Conventions are a good place too- at Cybercon last summer I saw the bugs for $40 (should've grabbed 'em) and Road Rage for $70 (really should've grabbed that!).
