    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Enjoy the blue G2 Grimlock! He was one of the items on which I was bidding. My green Slag and red Snarl will need to reunite with their blue buddy another time.

    After I won the 2007 Movie Wingblade I realized he may well be missing a piece. Any chance it's there?

    Also, if you know you are due a credit for this order and don't see it, send him an email directly ([email protected])
    He can receive and send emails directly but there's a glitch with the third party software.

    Looks like I actually won my lots. They're listed as "May Have Won" but I just got charged for them.

    That's a feature of the auction platform. It's "may have won" because it assumes there is a follow-up in-person auction... for a purely-online auction, "May Have Won" is won.

    (what did you win!? ;)  )

    Picked up a good number of G1 ehobbys Ive been looking for. Whoever grabbed the ehobby minibots got a nice price for them. They're hard to find anywhere nowadays.

    There's been a lot of hard to find stuff in these auctions. I also think my G1 collection has doubled since these auctions started.

    I bid on both thinking if I missed one I'd get the other...

    Great. I got the Marvel Crossover Hulks, Shadow Commander with Nemesis Prime, G1 Jazz, G1 Ratbat, G2 Bruticus, and G1 Reflector. I'm especially glad to get Ratbat, Bruticus and Reflector. I needed a Ratbat for my Soundwaves, Bruticus completes my G2 Bruticus collection, and G1 Reflector is a bit of a grail of mine.

    It took me two consecutive TFCons of digging in parts bins to complete my G2 Bruticus...


    Mine too.

    If I remember right, next round will have vintage Kabaya Liokaiser and Galvatron kits. Assembled, but still... they're teeny and very off-colour, and... well, how often do you see them?

    How can you snipe in these auctions? The time increases with each bid. You can have any item you want if you are willing to pay for it.

    ...the soft closes are nice; they effectively prevent sniping so long as bidders pay attention to their items of interest during the closing five minutes...

    I was willing to pay whatever to know for sure there would be no paint chipping on the chests. More than average? Sure. Worth it to overpay and never be bothered with a so-so Ebay auction again in my mind!

    Overpaid for Slamdance too not to chase perfect chrome for the rest of my life.

    That was my thinking when I got the powerdashers last time and the Jetfire this time (although they aren't as rare).

    If you're happy with the purchase, what does it matter to anybody else? Congrats!

    Hopefully my family didn't mind too much that I kept checking my phone every 30 seconds during mother's day dinner. Super happy with the reissue purple Galvatron though, so it's worth it

    Ha. Thanks man! Obviously I wish they had been cheaper, but ehhhhh.

    When I see that that Star Saber went for only $70 more though, or that the Omnibots were like $70 altogether I'm like:

    "Man I'm dumb. Also, what am I even going to do with all of these Action Masters!?"
