I saw that in the guide yesterday. That's pretty neat. I'm surprised he isnt worth a little more. Do you know of any good Joe shops online? Im familar with Dallas Vintage Toys, but it seems to be hit and miss on the stuff I need.

I usually do all my trades on facebook.

I don't know if you followed up on it... but... 

I don't think we are getting Cookie Monster... I had backed it but with 2 days and a few hours to go, there are 524 backers out of the required 3,000.  I am curious to see what happens.   Doesn't look good for Unicron either... but I lol'd at that one.

I really want Cookie Monster though :(

I'm a little surprised neither project had much interest.  I'm now unsure if any Marvel project would get funded.  With Marvel it's about the heroes and their powers, so I don't know that any one, big thing that's not a superhero or supervillain itself is of great interest to many Marvel fans.  Really that 3 to 4 foot Galactus is all that comes to mind as potentially having a wide appeal, but I don't even know if I want it with the 2-foot Galactus already existing and being far more space efficient.

I think it is simply the cost. I'm certainly INTERESTED in Unicron, but he's about three times as expensive as the next largest Transformer ever made. It's cool. VERY cool. But $600 for a big plastic toy...I just can't do it.

Looking better... Kind of cool that this was buried in the ground for at least 35+ years... most likely 40-45 years...

Turns out, there were a ton of those coins.  Trolley, bacchus, blaine kern, proteus, chief choctaw, cleopatra,.  Coins is a bad term.  I keep seeing doubloon.  Anyone know what they are?

These are Mardi Gras doubloons from various New Orleans parades. They would have been thrown from parade floats.

Saturday was a beautiful 73 and sunny (a welcome respite from the 100+ temps earlier in the week) so I decided to hit up some estate sales, for the first time this summer.

The first was just down the road, and has advertised "Vintage Star Wars", but all I found were a few random 90's POTF figures. However, it wasn't a total loss, as I scored these Star Wars SNES games, carded Commando die casts, and this really cool Tomytronic PAC-Man with box and instructions. The next sale was more productive...

This sale advertised a boxed Odyssey 2 system with games, and didn't say a word about toys. By the time I got here, the Odyssey was sold. I was going to leave, but I decided to walk the house in case there was anything of interest.

I made my way back to a bedroom, and in the center of the bed was a cardboard box marked "$5 All". The huge helicopter caught my eye, and I saw some bits of Transformers and Joe stuff, so I figured for $5 it was worth picking up.

When I got to the next bedroom, I found three Ziploc baggies marked $5 each. One with Rambo/Ghostbusters, one with Joes, and one with Secret Wars! I really thought the days of finding stuff like this dirt cheap at estate and garage sales was over, but the deals are still out there, so keep digging!

Once I got everything home and unpacked, I found nearly all of the accessories for the Joes and other figures (Tunnel Rat's backpack even has the little flashlights!) as well as a near complete Cobra Fang (missing the cage, per usual, but all of the rockets and bomb are there) and a complete Cobra Bunker. I don't collect Rambo, but this Skyfire chopper is complete and pretty cool, and there was lots of random stuff, a little Starcom, a little Centurions, Ghostbusters, even a Colt Robo! 

I was tickled. It's exactly the sort of cheap, random haul that makes the hunt fun. Everything below (and more) for $20!

 

This is an awesome haul.  Congrats

The Pacman game is awesome. 

Love the Starcom too. 

Would have been real happy to get those.

Thanks, yeah, I couldn't get my wallet open fast enough! The thing that surprised me is that this sale was run by a local estate sale company that I've bought from before, and usually those sorts of operations price stuff high. In this instance they were also auctioning off the propert itself and a car, so I guess this stuff was small potatoes.

Cookie Monster was not funded...

Apparently 'C' is for Cancelled
