    Ebay:
    HIGHS:
    Animated Voyager Megatron, Bulkhead & Starscream
    Animated Deluxe Blackarachnia

    Just broke down and bought Blitzwing & Lugnut

    LOWS:
    cost of shipping sucks but in the end i could spend it on gas chasing down the figs when they are supposed to be on the shelves at their release dates. So a minor low but nothing major.

    HIGHS: Grabbed MM Batman and a few other things I'd wanted for awhile off TRU.com - no hunting and it's only going to take one day to ship (not counting the wait for the order to be pulled, which has been like 3 days now - boo). Also, finally decided I wanted Classics Hot Rod after hemming and hawing on it for literally years, figured I was going to get gauged by ebay prices, but ended up getting him and Tit Rodimus MISB for msrp plus shipping. Guess it pays to wait out the scalpers, who eventually have no choice but to sell stuff at cost just to break even, yeah? :) 

    LOWS: Had 650 bucks in dental stuff done on Monday, and my insurance only covered 135 of it. Gah.

    Highs: Lego Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer and Republic Cruiser. Finally got a complete Brave Max off of Ebay for a decent price. Picked up Mass Effect, TW 08 and Ace Combat 6 for 50 bucks. Finished off my classics collection with Henkei BB.

    Lows: Trying to find time to play the games, build the star destroyer (i'm already 7 hours into it and it's only halfway done) and still keep my job. ;)

    Additional Low: TRU.com sending me Joker instead of Batman, clearly there is no difference to the shipping and receiving guys, yeah? Boo.

    They are awesome and their packaging is the best in the business. I have bought a few things from them, only thing is their pre-order requires you to pay upfront, but it's usually with a small discount.

    Highs: Just purchased Angel Brave Neo Parshath. It was supposed to come out over here as a card in the Surge of Radience structure deck but, that looked unlikely so I bought the jpn version.

    That is all kinds of awesome. I used to have that as a kid and haven't seen one until just now. I forgot about it but it is cool. I remember you can pull out the wings on the side and the cockpit slides forward. Good toy.
