    So I was just at the local Flea Market, and nabbed a MISB Titanium Hot Zone for $15! I'll provide pics later.

    Use this thread to tell us about your favorite/recent TF finds!

    MY dad picked me up a G1 Jetfire for $2.00 at a local flee market a few years ago. Other than yellowing and somewhat loose joints the figure is excellent!

    I never find anything at flea markets, even though it seems I live in the flea market capitol of NW Ohio, but I did stumble on a garage sale where I found 13 large ziplock baggies full of G1 figures for a quarter each. Some good stuff too, all 5 parts of Superion, Motormaster, Hunn-Gurr, complete Chainclaw, Springer, Horri-bull with headmaster and gun, and a bunch of others including some Gobots.

    Not to sound rude, but Please read thread title. Target is not a Flea market.

    I don't think he was commenting about getting from target but more of getting hotzone for $10 compared to the original poster getting it for $15 at a flea market. I got mine at target for $14, so don't think it's a great deal.

    I got Hotzone from my Flea Market for $10.50, which means it must've been like $3 at Target.

    Never found anything good at the Fleamarket, but, I found a box of TF stuff at a yardsale like a year ago got G1 Soundwave, MW Starscream, alot of weapons, and 2 collector cases.
    I got more in the box but IO don't remember what all was in there, the guy said there where more but sold before I got there.
