I hope no one minds me starting this thread. I have been hitting fleam markets, yard sales and goodwills figured I would share some finds. I scored a couple cool items vintage TMNT Rat king with belt,Leatherhead with belt,Casey Jones,Kran with legs and I think Scumbag. I also got a vintage Teela snake armor and 1998 yellow Voltron that I was just looking to sell if anybody is interested. Not looking to get much I got what I would deem a good deal. I paid $1.00 for the armor and $2.00 for the lion. I got all the TMNT for .75 each. They had some he-man figures beat up and they wanted $5 a piece I would have bought them for the novelty if they were in better shape. I would love to hear what others are finding out there in wild as I call it.

More than half my collection was found at yard sales, flea markets, estate sales, etc.

That includes Mego stuff, Star Wars, He-Man, Transformers, etc.

I just got a bunch of 80s goodies this sunday. About 12 Real Ghostbusters, 6 TMNT including Burne and Android Kang, 4 Toxic Crusaders, 1 Pirates of Darkwater I think, Willykit and maybe a Bucky O hare. Oh yeah and random M.A.S.K thermos. Dang and a SAWT Kat too lol. Flea markets can be cool sometimes....

The best scores I've gotten at Goodwill were a bag of original flesh colored M.U.S.C.L.E, 50 of them for 99 cents. I also picked up a carded Hordak, on a beat up card, but sealed in the bubble (original 80's MOTU) for $1.99, and I scored a BTAS Batmobile in mint condition for $3 and sold it on ebay for I think $39. Most recently, I was at Goodwill and got a carded BTAS Scarecrow for $1.25. Not a HUGE deal, but I couldn't pass it up for future trade value.

After work today I picked up my 4 month old son from the babysitter, [sorry I forgot to let you guys know me and my wife just had a wonderful baby boy who I hope picks up this hobby in the future :) ] We went thrift store shopping, not really looking for toys and stumbled upon this for 1.99!!!!! I was extremely stoked, I love my old GUTS figures from my childhood (which were ironically bought at a thrift store as well.) I got a few doubles, but I didnt care most of the Green Berets I didnt have.

also got this with the GUTS.. Lots of original M.U.S.C.L.E. guys :) The little blue A-10 jet is a transformer of some kind from 1988. all of it was in one bag:)

No, I don't believe so! I think it was Tonka, but again not positive. If it says Hasbro then it must be Transformers. I had them both, but I though it was GoBots.
