    The rules are pretty simple...

    Post a deal you had or have seen on a figure or lot of figures. At the minimum, reply directly to the post above you with a "good/bad deal" possibly followed with reasons as to why.

    You can post additional deals, but put only one per response.

    One thing I'd like to ask... DO NOT post auction links or names of individuals involved in the sale. Don't want this to incite flames or cause troubles... meant to be a fun and/or informative thread. (Pictures should be ok as long as usernames/people aren't present I imagine.)

    Considering that's what I paid for 5 years back when it was new. GOOD Deal.

    Great deal for what's probably the best the HA line has to offer. Marshall's/TJ Maxx may have them in stock, but sell them at 16$.

    Classics Ultra Magnus and Skywarp 2-pack for 30$.

    Vintage G1 selling around 50-60$ MISB isn't bad at all. They are somewhat obscure characters though.

    Cybertron Metroplex, Armless Tidal Wave for 25$... oh and bonus Classics Rodimus with gun.
