Another month, and time again for a new update on this project, where I started out with 5 euro and going to grab myself a StarMax Bomber for the collection.
Right, let`s kick in the door as an opener...
Yup, that`s right, I got him! Well, mostly at least... He still needs a fresh right body gun as that one got broken off in transportation, but heck, that`s peanuts. I know a Dash coming my way in the not so far future once I got that little piece sorted out.
In the end, I managed to exchange it for a Super Sentai toy I scored at the auctioneer house again. the benefit I have there, as you can see by most of my hauls, is that I am about the only person there intrested in old toys. As such, like recently, I can take along 2 or 3 full boxes of toys for a few euro and use those as great trade values.
I started out last month with this in the pool, but as I already have the ship now in my closet, you can imagine how hectic I have been e-mailing, group trolling and Facebook PM`ing around to get to this point.
1 Lion King Game
1 Kre-O Bumblebee kit
a set of 4 small toy cars
4 Dino Rider characters
a Dino Rider Protoceratops
4 GI Joe Backpacks
A remaining budget of 2.85 euro
As expected, it was mostly the Dino Riders that pushed the budget upwards. With that, I managed to grab no less then 3 lots, including as unexpected budget generators the 1973 Faller racetrack which I managed to trade around with the track parts, and a heap of old Barbie Shelly dolls. Add to that a box which had a LOT of old toy parts, and it was a full bomb...
Of all of the above stuff in the pool, I only have Bumblebee and the Lion King game left, and now a whole heap of other little nifty toys and elements.
But the bottomline is, I managed to exchange some big size playfigures of *I dunno which japanese live action sentai series* for a StarMax, which had a value of about 115 Canadian dollars... which is ubercheap to begin with.
So what have we learned so far?
1. Wait long enough for whatever toy you`re looking for and eventually it`ll come along
2. If you put in a lot of effort, you can generate a big toy from a measly 5 euro bill lol.
There will be one last update in this series, detailing the ship in all it`s glory as soon as I have exchanged some loose parts for the missing one, and then Dash will be here as well, but until then, hunt on!
Zombtober (4), Selwg loot and Oh My God what have you dug up now!
