    For me, I'd have to say it was one of my childhood favourites, Snapdragon. I was thrilled when I managed to pick this guy up mint with all stickers and accessories for just €13 from eBay Belgium when I was still living in Liège. When I see him selling for £62 with a missing rifle, I know I got a good deal on him. Even now, I still pay attention to various eBay sites in central Europe for rare auctions. The bargain often offsets the cost of importing.

    A neighbors son no longer cared for his tfs when he got older and so they gave me a box full of g1. It included Reflector complete, complete defensor, Blurr Soundwave and a couple casettes. I got these when i was still a kid so i played with them so they are no longer complete but that was the best deal on g1s i ever got since they were free.

    Either my unbroken near-mint Mirage I found at a flea market for $2, or my working Trypticon I got from the same flea market for $4. :)

    My mother and brother found me G1 this lot and paid only $10: G1 Magnus( almost complete), Mindwipe, Tracks, Grimlock, Swoop, Slag, Metroplex, and a complete perfect condition Omega Supreme. My jaw hit the floor when I saw them there welcoming me back home.

    I loved it when I was looking to get a japanese BW white Tigatron and this guy I never talked to at iaconhub just said, "Give me your address, I'll send you mine". First I was skeptical but after 3 weeks (normal to europe) I received a MIB crispy white Tigatron.

    It's the reason I never ask high prices for what I sell. And mostly I just give away to people who really have been looking for something.
