    You're the only one who caught that. It was definitely tongue in cheek.

    Also, don't see much yellowing, and not sure what accessories are there.

    Dude that Metroplex is in AWESOME shape, even without any of the accessories; the stickers look good and there doesn't seem to be any chrome-ware at all on the legs. Very nice. Sixshot looks to be in great shape too, the guns for him may be a bit pricey but if you figure in the fact that you didn't pay anything for the bot itself you'll have a complete Sixshot at a great price.

    As embarrassing as it may be at sometimes to admit that I collect toys, I've gotten quite a few good hauls from people who just want to get rid of some old "junk" they've had laying around for a while. The best one however has to be this haul from a friend of my wife's

    Excellent haul! While it may not be Scorp, Sixshot is a good one to get, especially for free.

    Were it me, I would tell said co-worker how much those things are worth and offer him something for them.

    But yeah, good times.

    For an hour and a half I probed for price, gave him estimates, and tried to pry out anything I could possibly hunt him down in return. He just didn't want anything.

    Once again, the "only" was very tongue in cheek. I'd been pestering a friend of mine to give me his Sixshot for about a year now.



    Oddly enough, that same friend just gave me the Technobot limbs, no accessories. Needs to find some Scattershot nao.

    So the other day, I told him exactly what it was he had, and he has since had two days off of work to look up prices on ebay. So, it went from "I'll just bring em in to you" to "You can have em for $50". $50 is a steal, mind you, so I won't complain. That, and Sixshot has one rifle, and Metroplex is missing about a third of his accessories.

    Kudos on that G1 deal, mate! I always say that the thrill of the hunt (and getting that sweet deal) is half the fun of this amazing hobby of ours!

    Dude that's awesome! Congratz!
    I also just recently received a free box filled wih 'mystery' G1 transformers, some rare, most complete! I couldnt believe the amount of potential $$$ this guy just handed to me as I unbelievingly continued to ask him "are you sure you want to GIVE these to me?!!"

    Included was a bag full of G1 Metroplex parts you might need, I'll PM you with a pic and see if you can use any of them.
    Congratz again!
    Later

    This is very similar to how I got my nearly complete G1 Metroplex. A co-worker came up to me during break and asked me if I wanted to buy a box of old Transformers that his girlfriend's brother had left in her apartment when he moved to California. I've got a thread about it some where around here.

    Here it is: The best $30 I ever spent.
