nice score, i would have gave the guy an extra 20. everytime i get offered a really good deal on something,i always pay more than asked. i guess i do it because i dont want to feel like im taking advantage of the person and maybe the person dont know how much the thing they're selling is really worth.

I recently paid more than that for a Skystriker that wasn't even that nice.
That whale is worth probably twice that.
You got a great deal. The guy must have never heard of ebay.

I'm absolutely jealous.
In my country is impossible to find Gi Joe toys. I'm lucky if i find a single model without broken parts.
And yes, Karma is strange...
I'm moving to a new house, and looking thru all kind of personal crap i found a small box: my old yojoes!
They're broken and dirty, so i decide to clean/repaint/save what i can.
Later that day, just for the memories i make a quick googling, but no luck, none sells anything worthy (mostly, really ruined figures)...t'ill i found a local store, that is about to close and is selling everything at cost!
That means classic and 25 anniversary figures at more or less 10-15 of your USD! I grab my money, and make the trip (is another City, so it was a long trip)...just to find an almost deserted store, the announcement was from a few months ago, so there's nothing left, except a 25 anniversary Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Crimson Gurad and Buzzsaw. I've bought them of course, and spent 1000 USd more in Star wars figures.
Two days later, my brother arrives, he's been in Spain the last year, so he sees all the boxes i've been scathered around with my stuff. He quickly looks around, and smiling says "here, take these, i won't need them, you overgrown idiot"....to my dismay he gifted me their small collection, and they're oh so well kept. And he has has some figures i have too, so i can easily fix my own and use the rest for customising!
A day later, when moving my stuff to the new house, i've crossed paths with an old friend of childhood. Helps me with the boxes, and sees the toys.
"still with that crap??"
"yes dammit! why?"
"cos somewhere,i have a bag full of them if you want them" says he smiling.
Yah, Karma is strange indeed.
Best thing? I've received a few days ago a mail from the store. They're expecting a new cargo of stuff, and they will sell it at cost price. Can't wait!

This is simply an awsome find! LUCKYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! I think I would've started crying. LoL. I mean this is an amazing find. The SkyStriker and WHALE are like the Holy Grail of Joe Vehicles besides the TerrorDome and the USS FLAG (IMO)and in excellent condition no less!!! I mean Christmas came early for you, Sir. Lucky man. It's cool that you will be sending pics to him. Maybe invite him over so that he can see your collection and the new additions that he sold to you. Of course after you clean and replace the stickers on them. Just a thought.
