    Found my G1 Optimus missing a fist at an Antique Store... in a bin with some micromasters.

    The sign said "Transformers--- Remember these?"

    i remember i found a g2 prime in the box in the trash on the side of the road once when i was walking home from the bus stop. (1996-1997 maybe?) someone's parents must have got mad at em and thrown it out.

    Kolhs stocks toys y'know!

    Me, I once found a Generation 2 Gobots Ironhide and all 3 of the small missile-firing-handed Generation 2 Decepticon jets (Hooligan & etc.) at a discount store in 1999, YEARS after their release!

    And a couple years back, they also started to carry Universe toys and Cybertron Legends-Class figures. Now however, they only have an already opened Universe-packaging Energon Barricade stashed on the top toy shelf to remind me of those days...

    Two times have I ever really been surprised. Once, while playing outside in the backyard of a neighbor, I found burried in some dirt two of the constructicons. This was back in '89. I asked him if it was alright if I kept them and said "sure", and he had no idea where they came from.

    The second time was finding a complete Movie Voyager Blackout for $3 in the home decor area of a Goodwill.

    would that be the female that used G-1 Astrotrain as a pleasure toy? lol


    A near complete G-1 Sunstreaker in a school playground a few years ago... I guess a parent or older sibling gave it to a child and it got left in there... only things missing were the hands and missiles which i easly replaced.

    Two M.I.S.B. Gaken Alpha Fighters one Blue (Scott) one Green (Rand) during a trip to a cousin's house he didn't want them and freely gave them to me :D

    When I was a child, there was this interior decoration store...well anyway, they basically sold wallpapers, carpets, floor tiles, paint...you know, those kinda stores. And toys.

    It was kinda quirky on hindsight; a combined home improvement and toy store. Fun for the whole family, that was for certain...I don't think that store exists anymore, though. And even if it does, it definitely won't be selling the same stuff than when I was a kid. :(  If only I could go back in time...
