I just bought a lot of transformers from a guy on craigslist for $50 and in the listing he said he was a collector. When I met up with him, he said it again and then said that he's selling them for money due to financial reasons but they are all in good shape but a couple might be missing stuff.. Well I checked them out and all the ones I was interested in had all their stuff from what I could tell. When I got home and started looking closer at them, esp the ones near the bottom they were all dirty as hell, not dusty but dirty. It looked like he threw them in a box and put it outside on the beach for a couple of weeks. OMG they were terribly dirty. So as the daughter went to start the dishwasher I took some of the ones that I'm not going to keep and threw them in there to see how they would come out. They didn't do bad at all. The rub sign on one of 2 that had it started coming off but, other than that, they look really good. I think I'm gonna put the ones I'm keeping in there as long as they don't have stickers, maybe wash them on warm instead of hot as hell. Point is, how do you call yourself a collector and keep your figures in such horrible condition, I can see them getting dusty from sitting around but, these were just dirty as hell, there is no way he was a collector. It's all good, I don't COUNT on the word of anyone from Craigslist. An Example of one of them Dirty.. They all look like this..
