Interesting/unexpected score today

I was taking my Dad to the optometrist today, and while waiting for them to finish up with him, I walked around the strip where the eye-shoppe was. There were some boxes sitting outside this QuikDrop place (a place they Ebay your stuff for you, interestingly enough. I didn't know you could make a viable business for this, doing it for OTHER people) Anyway, the boxes sat under a sign that said '$5 a box, inquire inside'. So, I did that, as one of the boxes ad a lot of toys in it, mainly Dragon Ball stuff that would've made good trade fodder. The guy behind the counter immediately started his sales schpeal , but I asked about the boxes out front. He said was correct. I offered him $5 for the lot (and he stuck me for another $5 for the bin they were in :rolleyes:)

 

At any rate, my luck paid off. Among everything (which included the afore-mentioned DBZ stuff, X-Men, Spider-Man, Warriors of Virtue, and about 60% TMNT stuff) were these litle gems (IMHO):

 

3 Movie Edition Mortal Kombat figures (Scorpion, Subzero, and Raiden)

3 '2-up' Mortal Kombat figures (the 5-6 inch figures made from the Hasbro molds) Subzero, Sonja Blade, and Raiden

old 10 inch ToyBiz Scarlett Spider (pretty sweet looking)

and, dig this: a loose/no accs Target Clonetrooper!

 

I think I more than broke even for $10 :D

Yeah, the guy was a hack, but Nah, it was pretty much an 'as-is' deal, and like I said, I more than made out, in my mind, particularly since I kinda army-build the MK ninjas, and I needed the big Sonja Blade figure as a base for a future custom Galadria figure from 'Visionaries' (Actually, I'll need another one if I do the Darkling Lords chick)

 

It's all good, though. :)
