Thrift Find: Transformers G2 Scrapper Constructicon
For the last couple of weeks, I have been making a weekly trip to our local Goodwill store. This store just recently opened, which I am not sure if it's good or bad. It is really close to home and work. So whenever I get a free minute, I go check it out.
When I was younger, my mom hated buying me toys. She desperately wanted me to play with baby dolls but I just wasn't into that. I loved my Barbie dolls, but I couldn't stand baby dolls. Not to mention, that I also loved all the Star Wars, GI Joes, and Transformers I could get my hands on. She hated buying "boy toys". One Christmas, I got the Autobot Blaster. That was the only one that I ever had. I have been slowly picking up vintage Transformers.
I would look at them and put them back. This went on for several weeks. I would try to hide them, but at the Goodwill that is virtually impossible. I am surprised they were still there. Finally, green was the color of the day and I got them half price. I don't really think they have been worn. They have been properly Lysoled and sanitized. Now, if the weather will just warm up.
