    I got a large lot of old Energon figures and a Cybertron scout for $70:

    -Complete Energon Omega Supreme
    -near complete Energon Optimus Prime (missing gun and trailer was sort of broken, but I had a spare working trailer from a junker Optimus)
    -Energon Overcast (missing gun/missile, otherwise complete)
    -Energon Landquake (the big ultra tow-truck Autobot, not the orange one, only missing the missile)
    -Energon Wing Saber (only missing missiles, otherwise MINT)
    -Cybertron Swerve (complete)

    Free with vive le Quebec price error.

    Recently, RTS Fallback on Monday I think. Lots of other ones but too many to name.

    10$ CAD for HA Barricade. Again another price error
    15$ CAD for HA Mudflap. The little lady gave it to me for that price.

    20$ CAD TFA Leader class toys.

    When the Animated Shockwave/Bumblebee and Sunstorm/Ratchet two-packs were at Target they were mistakenly marked at $5 each, rather than the $25 they were supposed to be.

    I bought a MOSC Classics 2.0 Starscream at Vintage Stock for about 8 bucks last weekend. Marked at 12.99, and they were having a 33% off sale. Bought a MIB Jafcon Prime at another Vintage Stock a couple of years ago for $100.

    Um...Universe Hardhead on clearance for 15 bucks. I don't find too many deals at retail. Although I did score some rare SW the Clone Wars figs for 4.50 once after my Walmart had a sale and forgot to take the tags down.
