    I was browsing Craig's list the other day and came across a listing for a huge lot of transformers. The picture looked promising so I checked it out. Here is what $75 dollars got me. Drum roll please...

    And all the leftover bits...

    Not everything is 100% complete, for example Wing Saber is missing 1 sword and Leobreaker is missing a paw. I'm hoping to find some of the missing pieces at TFcon.

    Now I will be selling some of this so, expect an update in my sales thread soon.

    Great haul! I'd say the highlight there is Cannonball. Hope you won't sell him ;)

    Dude, that's awesome. The only Craigslist listing in my area for a Transformers lot is someone selling a couple very common Beast Wars, with a few Armada figures sprinkled in and asking FAR too much. Congrats on your lucky haul!

    Oh don't you worry about that. I regret selling the first one I had, but never picked him up again. It was a treat to get him 100% complete here.

    In fact him and classics megatron are going to be first on the chopping block.

    Thanks man. I found this by happenstance. In fact the lady who owned 'em lived about 60 miles from me. Try looking in areas that are just far enough way to be a pain in the ass is all I can suggest.

    Holy balls!!!!! I peruse Craigslist every once in a while and there's never been anything worth a damn (if there's been anything at all). Go buy a lottery ticket while you're at it.
