    I would have to say my 20th DVD Optimus Prime = free when I bought 2 from Amazon.com, and the 2nd would be the G1 Prime I got yesterday with trailer for about $40.00.

    Cyb Quickmix- $11 on clearance
    Alt Prime- cost of shipping it to me (seriously. Worked out to about $10 total)
    Walmart BF Downshift/Cannonball 2-pack- $10 MSRP, but it was a good deal

    That's about it.

    The best deal I got was actually being able to find a MP Starscream. Paid full price for it too. This is notable because of how horrible and impossible it is trying to find any uncommon toy in my area.

    BT-17 Binaltech Black Convoy for $180 shipped from Japan, think it's not a good deal just look at the eBay prices now :D 

    Runners up would be Binaltech Wheeljack and Laserwave for $25 MISB each.

    A couple weeks ago at the grocery store I work at we got some of the Transformers movie Deluxes. I was able to pick up Barricade, Jazz, and Bonecrusher for $5.99 each (we had a special sale).

    So not only did I not have to waste lots of money on gas driving all the way to the mall or Toys R Us only to find out that they don't have any of them, but I didn't even have to pay full price for 'em! :D

    Ebay:
    Lots of Actionmaster e.g a complete AM Optimus Prime + trailer. Lot's of small combiner bots with accessories, complete Springer, kup, blur, hotrod, scourge, brainstorm and different complete pretenders, and lots of micromasters and vehicles :) 
    I got an offer through some german ebay member, that rather sell his collection to a collector in one bunch instead of listing them on ebay. I just gave him an offer on $250 for the lot and he agreed :D

    Nice! The Overlord and combiner bots/accessories alone make it very well worth it. I'm dying for a nice G1 lot deal, haven't gotten one in a while and those I have gotten weren't huge lots. Were you worried at all about a scam as the situation went down? (random guy in foreign country wanting to make a deal outside of ebay and accepting the first offer thrown at him?).

    I've had a great year for getting some deals on TFs this year; however, my best deal would have to be for my Lucky Draw SuperLink STD Convoy for $230 (Canadian) shipped...

    Concept Camaro Bumblebee, Voyager Megatron, and Star Wars TF Mace Windu, all MISB, for $47 shipped. After tax that's still under cost and considering how much Bumblebee was getting scalped for at the time it was a hell of a deal.
