    MY roommate's trying to get a Fortress Maximus figure for his collection. He recently picked up the body on eBay, missing nearly all the accessories.

    It showed up today, and when we opened it up he found something else stuck in the "cage trap" on the lower leg. The seller had left an Armada Windsheer and a G1 OVERKILL inside Fort Max!!!


    Anyone else ever get a surprise like this??

    Yep, I bought an incomplete Fort Max years ago. When I got it home, I opened the little green "cockpit" and Spike falls out into my hand!

    Once I bought a G1 vintage MIB Perceptor. When I came home to open the box - 6 minibots fell out - Bumblebee, Huffer, Brawn, Gears, Seaspray, & Cosmos.

    Nice!

    Well, they used to have those Kraata things in the BIONICLE line. The cans had like 3 kraata and a sticker. I got one once which had 8 kraata!

    Seems to be a lot of tales of things being found inside Fort Maxes; I bought an incomplete one (missing Cerebros' rifle) a few years back. I decided to try and clean him up a bit, so I took him to pieces and cleaned him.
    And as I took the main body to bits, Cerebros' rifle fell out. :)

    Last week, I received a MIB Trypticon in the mail.

    Went accounting for all of the parts, I discovered the ramp for Onslaught had been thrown in.

    Exciting, huh?

    Otherwise, the only big surprise I've ever gotten was getting a G1 Jetfire and when I opened the box, came to discover an unapplied G1 sticker sheet. This was not mentioned in the auction, but needless to say I was ecstatic.

    That's cool, Overkill's pretty sweet. I guess they did'nt leave his weapons in there as well.

    Only intoy suprise I ever got was I bouugh a loose G1 Prime, and there was 3 G2 constructicons and an extra pair of fists in the trailer (the other were in his cab)


    I ordered a tiny black stikfa from BBTS once, and they sent me the giant stikfa instead with a note of thanks for the buisness.

    Also recieved a 'free Pepsi Prime' certificate from Digital toys , which put me in hooray mode

    I won a MOSC BW buzzclaw and the seller threw in a second one for free, with a note thanking me for being a good ebay customer.

    Other than that All I ever got was a unapplied sticker sheet for a MIB ultra magnus, that wasn't advertised in the auction.

    I can't remember what I bought, but there was a Constructicon, a Warpath, and a Powerglide thrown in by the seller. That was pretty cool.

    Many moons ago I bought X-9 Ravage and the seller threw in a free D-7 Shadow Panther, which I don't remember the auction mentioning at all. That was way cool since I was considering picking him up anyway as he was a cool repaint unavailable in the states, and was relatively cheap.

    There are only two times that I can think of that involves Transformers. The first was when I placed an order with the Club store for Alt. Prowl, Skids, and Sunstreaker (I think the fourth figure in that wave was older) they sent me the Legends of Cybertron Ramjet. I also got an extra gun with my Galaxy Force Optimus Prime that I found at a Wal-Mart in Atlanta, although I could see it in the box I thought it had fallen out of his hand until I saw the other gun tied down in his hand.

    The only other unexpected surprise I got that I can think of at the moment was back during the Christmas of 1989, if I remember correctly. When I opened my Cobra B.U.G.G. it had a few extra pieces. Most where unusable, like a few extra pieces for the removable pod but not enough for a second one, but it did have a few extra missiles which always came in handy for using as base defenses.

    Years back when I was doing a lot of G1 toy collecting thru ebay, I bought something (think it might've been Skywarp), and the seller tossed in a G2 black Sideswipe. I was nice and wrote back to make sure it wasn't a mistake. :)

    Yeah, I got a BW Orcanoch playset missign Taratulas, I was opening all the little compartment doors and there he was just lying there. That was from Transformerland.com. I've recieved a couple G1 techs and instructions too from the sellers I keep returning to.
