    ive heard of several flea markets I have yet to go to one, I usually always find TF when I go to flea markets usually without acc. and stuff. but I will have to check it out this weekend if my mom comes to visit she loves flea markets!! Yeah Yeah I admit Im a packrat too. Okay well if I go I will post what I see out there. I know of an indoor flea market somewhere on Lamar, this guy who sells toys told me about it, I will have to check that out too.

    Thanks Starswipe, I was just looking for more info on where the location is. I know of that huge one in Wimberly, that everyone in Texas talks about it's only on the first weekend of every month though, but thanks again I will go and check it out see what I find!!

    Austin G1 shops

    Does anyone know of stores in Austin that sell old Transformers. I've been to Hogwild and Funny Papers, but I wanted to know if there are other shops in the area.

    nope but I have never been to the two places you mentioned what kind of things do they carrry? That one place Momoko's had some old TF's but in boxes they were of course imports but like BW stuff. How old of TF's are you looking for?

    Hogwild carries a bunch of G1 stuff. Some are really overpriced but others aren't that bad. I got a complete Thrust for $35.

    Funny Papers also carry G1 toys. The section is a lot smaller but the prices are decent. I bought a complete Blitzwing for $25 and a Takara Reissue Rodimus Prome for $35.

    I'm just looking for some G1 (84-86) action figures. I was just wonder if there are other stores in town.

    Hey! Payton Gin Target finally getting shown some love! Be going by soon to check all that out.

    I wanted to ask you guys if you see the original Star Saber team pack out. I've seen all the other early wave minicons on the shelves, and kinda want to pick up another Air Defense set. Most appreciated.:D

    Well crap, I went to two targets and two walmarts in Austin and Round Rock and they had everything but Wheel Jack and Hoist. They all had PL prime and 3rd issue of supercon Prime and all the TFU deluxe figures but no freaking Wheel Jack or Hoist!!!

    AAAAAHHHHH I hate this, I need them now!
