    and i scored! nothing as amazing as my fort max but none the less got a great haul (pictures later)

    for a buck each i got:
    2 power ranger monsters from the original series (big size)
    a vintage skeltor and hordak
    G1 stranglehold pretender shell WITH helmet
    beast wars Cicadacon (missing arm, wings, and black panel)

    also got a knock off lio convoy for a buck

    then afterwards we stopped at the wal-mart there and they had reveal the shield wave 2, so i grabbed two more wreck-gars (now i have 3, all i want) and an extra g2 prime (i broke part of mine off)

    so yeah, today was AWESOME, we picked up a BUNCH of clone wars star wars figures, for $0.50 a piece, including commander cody and 4 orange clones (those were in a bag for $1.00 for all of them) and that brand new general grevious, but it had no accessories or shoulder pads

    I went to my local flea market as well today. It was the first time I have been there since last October. Things are starting to heat up again. Anyhow, here is what I found today:

    [​IMG]

    Sadly, none of G2 Megatron's accessories were there. However, the spring mechanism and electronics still work! I also bought Gobots Zero minus the missing propeller (not pictured). I also saw a bunch of broken figures (mostly recent lines) and movie figures that I didn't buy because they were either too expensive or too broken. Total cost for the day: $5 = not bad for the first day of the new season!

    That KO Lio Convoy is a good quality toy (for a KO). I got one about 5 years ago from Big lots and it was a nice surprise, esp after the KO Devastor set I got at the same time.

    Here is a pic of the Gobots Zero (minus propeller) that I got at my flea market yesterday. Man, the Gobots line actually had some cool alt-modes - especially the little guys.
