    My lovely wife was out at garage sales yesterday. She normally doesn't find much TF related but yesterday she came home with a bag she described as a "garbled mess". She paid $2 and really wasn't even sure if it was a TF but figured for $2 it didn't really matter. Then my eyes lit up when I pulled the following out (to be fair, it was so mis-transformed it didn't look like much of anything):

    That is probably the best $2 she'll ever spend :)

    Either way, that's awesome for $2.

    Man, I thought about spending 40 bucks just for an Ultra Magnus a while back (Nevermind the colors, that mold is purely Magnus)! Congratulations, odd deco choice isn't bad at all when you're saving that much money.

    Here you go. It's basically a Costco exclusive repaint set of Armada Optimus Prime and Overload. And judging by Ebay, it's worth at least a hundered or two.

    So congrats on the awesome find!

    Thanks for looking that up. It's rather shocking that it's worth so much on eBay (though frankly, I don't put a lot of stock in eBay prices...they don't mean much if nobody's bidding or buying) given how positively garish it is. And I don't think it's complete...I don't see Sparkplug. Everything else seems to be in order, though. But for $2, good find. I would just leave Prime in truck mode all the time.

    Forget humping her leg. For something like this, he better go down in Autobot history, if you catch my drift...
