    I just want to thank the organizer of the NJCC. It is really a great event with some amazing people. It really makes your realize how this hobby is really special and how the people are remarkable in person.

    At this NJCC, I cleaned up! My #1 chief pickup, which was a steal was G1 Italian Wheeljack in Box!

    [​IMG]

    I got this guy for a steal! $65! All he is missing is the right clear wing piece.
    The best thing about this guy is the Italian Bumber Missles. These things are hilarious. I am going to have to get the US missles, since this guy is definitely going to be displayed. If anyone has the missles and/or the the clear right wing they are willing to sell, I would be extremely grateful.

    Other things I was able to pick up:

    - Very nice condition complete G1 Defensor: $70
    - G1 Coneheads: 1 complete, 2 missing landing gears: $85

    Here is the complete Haul:

    All in all a very good day! Anyone else have any good pickups?

    Also, if anyone has:
    - G1 landing gears
    - Thrust Missles
    - Wheeljack clear wing piece
    - Wheeljack missle

    Please message me.

    Yeah, at the next one this year, I am going to try to replace my KOs with originals. At this point I am very upset with myself for getting KOs. These Collectors Conventions are so much nicer and prices so much more reasonable, I cannot see a reason to pick up a KO again.

    I am really happy I waited and did not get the Wheeljack KO.

    Nah man, yours was definitely awesome also. Plus yours is complete. LOL. I still have the find that wing piece.

    Yeah, they are the same mold, but those wings are sweet. I really like em. I was happy I got most of what I was looking for today. The only thing I didn't find was Sunstreaker. Maybe next time. I cannot wait!

    Yeah, he was 100% complete. Just need to reprolabel him a bit.

    Also got a $3 Blitzwing. I plan on cleaning him up. He will be my second. LOL. I needed some parts to make my first perfect, but then I found some other parts too. Great day all in all.

    I got this stuff right here:

    Classics Inferno MISB - $40 (I've needed this for over two years)
    Deadpool & Taskmaster - $20 (I've been searching for this for 2 months)
    X-Force 3 Pack - $20 (see above)
    Cycle Armour - $10 (came with enough guns to equip meh new Deadpools. Woot.)
    Hans Cuffs - $1 (I know it's a Go-Bot, but it was only a buck! And I got a free comic with it!)
    Major Mo - $2 (I like the Nissan 300ZX. I am NOT a Go-Bots fan, I swear)
    LED Autobot T-Shirt - Traded an Alternators Swindle for it
    [​IMG]

    I filled in three holes (the Deadpools and Inferno) of my collection and got some other neat swag for damn good prices. The NJCC is bad ass.

    You are a goddamn thief man! :lol 

    My haul was Botcon Sharkticon, G2 Breakdown, Overlord, Metalhawk, Octopunch, and Spinister, all very reasonably priced. Only problem is my post-movie Classics Decepticon shelf is out of space now. >.>

    Yeah the whole time, I just kept checking it to see if there was something wrong with it. I was like, is this KO? No, doesn't look or feel KO. No KO signs, plus it has things that says this is pretty old. Are pieces missing? Nope, nothing missing.

    It was just a good seller.

    I have been to 2 NJCC's and I always find that people for the most part are very reasonable with their goods. It makes you realize how expensive EBay has made this hobby. I just wish there were more NJCCs.

    The only thing I kinda wish I pulled the trigger on was the complete Trypticon they had there for $250. However, a couple of people at the show said that is a bit too much for it. EBay tells me it's a deal. I think I will wait till the next show to see if I can land one any cheaper.

    I actually had a couple of guys at the show confirm this was not a KO. Thankfully it wasn't.

    I am not sure how to tell if it was indeed the Italian one and was original to this box, but not sure where I could find info on that. All the rest of the stuff seem original, including the manual, and the bumper missile.

    On the flip side, I wish I had your car. That thing is saweeet.

    I thought that the knockoffs were of pretty good quality, is that no longer true? Just wondering since I see a lot of posts with people who regret owning them.
