    Masterpiece Optimus Prime for 50 bucks during a Toys R Us special. :) 

    On a side note, I wonder how long it's going to be before that one forum member who got Fortress Maximus with Spike for seven bucks at a flea market is going to post in this thread bragging about it. :redface2:

    we all saw that... you suck! lol. you always seem to be at the right place and right time. you must have a setting on here that will alert you when a crazy deal is posted... maybe even have automatic bidding like ebay.



    I picked up my g1 mib 100% complete omega supreme for 100.00
    box is in nm condition too

    My wife got me a G1 Metroplex from ebay for about $30. It was in perfect condition, and even came with a free mini spy, two Micromasters, and an extra pair of the long red guns that form Sixgun's legs, so that Sixgun can stand, fully formed, next to an armed Metroplex.

    Never thought I'd get a 110% complete/mint Metroplex for $30. Best deal ever.

    Not long after that, though, she found a complete/mint G1 Scorponok for a decent price, too, although I don't quite remember how much it cost.

    Now if I can only get a good, cheap Trypticon or Gigastorm, I'd have all the G1 citybots.


    EDIT: Oh yeah, the Animated purple Shockwave/Activator Bumblebee for $5.00 at Target...that was nice, too. :)
