    Inspired by this thread, I went to my local discount store.

    I found some stuff that I'd love to buy but I needed to check with all of you. For background, I will still be able to make rent if I bought all three of these things. It's just that with the holidays I've spent a bit of money. As well, with holiday shopping I've also already been tempted into spending a bit of money on myself. If I'm going to take advantage of a deal, I have to know it's worth burying my shame as I look my wife in the eye (who likely won't care at all, I should add).

    Ok. Here goes.

    Animated Skywarp: $12.99 - I don't own this mold and always thought that if I were to pick up only one of these guys, it would be Starscream.

    Animated Shockwave: $12.99 - Thanks to the generosity of Generations I am very close to my dream of owning all of history's Decepticon commanders (I lack a good Shockwave, Ratbat, and Scorponok). I'd probably be more interested in a purple one, but $12.99!

    HA Barricade: $19.99 - No such sentimentality. Just think he looks cool as a car. Don't know the first thing about HA figures.

    Thanks for sharing your opinions!

    If you have not gotten HA barricade yet do it! He was well worth normal retail and 20 is a steal for that figure!

    Somebody's been to TJ Maxx LOL. At those prices though, they are definitely worth it, if you can swing it go for it. :D
