    Leader class Starscream

    I went to TJ Maxx yesterday in San Antonio and found Leader Class Starscream for $24.99. I was shocked.

    "Hey anyone wanna pay $30 bucks for a toy that I just found for $10 for myself??"

    Some information, you really should keep to yourself... if just to further your cause :)

    Not at all. Its called honesty. I now have two lugnuts. One i paid 21 + shipping and one i paid 10$ for. You may not like it but I dont plan on eating the extra cost. So i'm offering it for how much i bought it for on hts. I did this with my extra grappel and had several people wanting it. I'm not sure why some people think that a person selling has to lose money.

    If you want to sell toys, do it in the Junkion and not news threads.

    Ran into the guy ganking figures in my area. Guy was a total douche. He first asked me what I was looking for (as he held 2 G2 primes). said I was hunting for Grapple and Windcharger. He responded with:
    "Yeah I bought all them a few days ago, but if you want one I can help."

    At this point I'm like OH MAN THIS GUYS GONNA HOOK ME UP, but then my bubble gets burst with.

    "Yeah you can have a Windcharger for $50 and a Grapple for $40.00."

    I of course declined and walked to the clearance rack where I found a RTS BB he FLEW to where I was and was flipping out. Dude almost pulled the fig from my hands. I ignored the jerk and went to checkout but he of course had to tell me
    "If your thinking about hitting Wal Mart don't bother I grabbed all the Laserbeaks, and all the new Joes they put out."

    I remember this guy from a previous incident. I went to a Wal Mart trying to find the figs that were being released pre shelf date. I seen a cart with 3 Sentinels and 4 Shockwaves in it. I went to touch the package to here the Sentinel voice and the dude spazzed. "THOSE ARE MINE!!!"

    :eek:  :crazy: 

    There are actually people like this? Wow. That's just sad. :(  Shinobitron, I would be a little freaked out if that happened to me.

    You have to wonder what's going through the guy's mind. Surely he can't make a living by scalping toys, and it doesn't sound like he devotes much time to anything else. Does he get some kind of sick pleasure from depriving kids of toys and ripping off collectors? People like that give TF fans a bad name! Really saddens me to hear about this kind of thing. :(

    Dammit I am hitting my local TJMaxx first thing tomorrow. Visited a Ross today and found nothing so I am going to other Ross in my area to try to find Lugnut and Grapple, two TF on my must have list.


    And if you found extras please PM me. Thanks. :)

    I used to work for K B Toyworks and Toys R Us and I had to deal with people like that on a regular basis. They would try to bribe me just so I'd give them first crack at closed cases of toys. I would leave the boxes out by the stock room door just so I didn't have to listen to people bitch. Once I found out that they were reselling stuff for 2-20 times the amount it was worth I stopped helping them out. I'd stock Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, X-Men, Hot Wheels, etc. before or after the store was open to the public. Collectors would get pissed to see that huge crease that "somebody" made by bending the cardboard backing board a few times. Might have been useless to them since they couldn't turn a profit but kids were able to buy the toys they wanted. :D

    No TJ Max in my area though the sign is still there. Oh well. Found my Perceptor at the other Marshalls. Can't believe that thing was just sitting there in the other end of the same mall I work at waiting for me to find it.

    No Grapple's in the two Ross's I checked out. Seeing how everything is simply a wreck inside of those stores I was reminded why I avoid going to them. I did score the only Deep Dive there and I'm pretty stoked about paying only $10.87 (with tax) for a $20 figure. :)
