    I can't believe my wife's (mine) luck. The other day she comes home from the thrift store and says she found something that looked awesome and couldn't pass up. So that piqued my interest.

    She hands me this bag, note the price $2.95:

    At this point I'm just blown away at what an epic find she had. Then she tells me there are TWO MORE BAGS in the car. I think I felt like those super nintendo kids from years ago. What a find!

    The next bag looked like this, also note the price $2.95

    By this time I'm looking for the hidden camera.. It felt like I was being punk'd

    The third bag was $2.95 as well, it looked like this:

    And here's the group that I got for less than the price of a deluxe figure.

    G1 Scorponok, Trypticon, Crosshairs, Headstrong, Divebomb and Rampage.

    I also got a super gobot in there too but he was kinda lame.. LOL

    I might wanna trade the predacons.. The good news Scorponok was about 90% complete, Trypticon was just the figure and the battery door but absolutely no corrosion. I was amazed how shiny/nice they all are and how stinking lucky I am. My wife rules.

    $2.95 for a loose Trypticon? Talk about luck being on your side.

    The best thing I ever found was a near complete Leader Class Cybertron Galvatron for $1.99.That pales in comparison to your wife's find.

    Man I bet even Rework would be jealous of that one. Awesome score, especially Scorponok!

    Awesome, congrats :)  They look so clean, too. I wonder where they come from....hopefully not an angry ex of a TF collector!
