got this guy at a yardsale, not sure who he is, I am actually horrible at transforming these things, always scared I am going to break them, can anybody tell me who this is, maybe provide a link to the original in package item?, he's pretty big, I would estimate 10-12 inches tall...

Robots in Disguise Megatron or Galvatron - can't access my collection right now, but definitely one of those. Only difference is color.

Thanks for the awesome compliment, Dylan!

I promise you though, for every gem I find I get a pile of useless rocks!

That is a sweet looking Transformer.Drooling

moon knight has been killin' it lately...so is this transformer special at all?, I did some brief looking for master force galvatron, and the ones I saw looked just like it but only had Japanese text on the box...so not sure yet, I mean I am assuming there was an American version...

Well, in this case I was 99% sure Xy was right, so I just did a Google image search. There are other sites I use to ID Transformers whenever anyone has a question about them. The one I use most is http://www.transformerland.com/

Whew! Thought I gave bad info, I was mainly going off the legs and forearms - I'm stuck browsing on a nook for now and pics don't load right/full-size on some sites.

Nice pickup. The yard sales around here only have old pots and pans and broken barely used exercise machines.

Yeah as moon knight says, I find more junk than anything, but it's something I enjoy doing, and the kids like it too, we fancy ourselves amateur pickers.

I really have personally only had two(what I would call decent) comic book finds in all of my yard saling.

1. I bought a VF+ copy of ASM 252 for $1
2. I bought a box of 100 or so books for $40 that had Silver Surfer #2, Warlock #1, and quite a few old DC 12 centers, Action and Adventure comics mostly...

I have better luck finding toys and other stuff than comics. It seems like nowadays everyone thinks their copy of Silver Sable & the Wild Pack #1 is worth $1,000. Plus anything older than 1970 is usually trashed (VG or worse). Or they are trying to retire on the proceeds from their complete run of Youngblood.Rolling on the Floor

With toys, especially loose ones, people don't really know what they have. Neither do I sometimes, but I have a pretty good idea. Like the Masterpiece Grimlock I found a couple of months ago. All I knew is that it was Grimlock so I snagged it real cheap and found out later what it was.

So I have made one or two great finds but I also have several buckets of stuff that isn't worth the listing price and is probably getting donated to a school or something.
