Other than getting the Flagg and Skystriker dirt cheap. My best luck find was 3 polar battle bears complete and 2 Cobra Pogo's missing only a few parts for 27.00 at the Amish Flea market, in central Ohio.

My best ever was the Red/Yellow Beach Head repaint from India that I got for $28 shipped. I have been offered well over $1,000 for this figure in the years since.
I also did well with a vehicle lot I bought on EBay last summer. I got an Avalanche, Thunderclap, Hammerhead, 2 Coastal Defenders, one of the BF 2000 vehicles, a Mean Dog, a Snow Cat, and a couple other vehicles for $60 shipped. Well over $250 worth of stuff in the lot.
I also got lucky and got a MISB Night Ray for just over $100 shipped. That's probably a $400 item.

My luckiest - was when wave 1 of the 25th came out.. it was the weekend of Wizard World Chicago - we left the show and went to the mall that friday evening.. walked into Kaybee Toys and they had all of wave 1 up - picked them all up - and my buddy goes - wait.. that aint the same timber that is in the other SE.. I go back and picked up the white timber that I left on the shelf.. (I had black timber in my hand when he said that)
2 weeks later I find out that the black timber is a variant and impossible to find.. best find ever!

I won a General off ebay for $9.99. Only one of it 12 wheels was broken off. Better yet the seller was a consignment store, which happen to be 5 minutes from my house, So I paid no shipping.

My luckiest and best purchase happened recently. I am a fan of the Vamp/Stinger vehicles. I have been trying to collect every version; including international versions ie. Funskool's police Vamp. I found, on eBay, a 99% complete Sears exclusive Dreadnok Ground Assault set (the Holy Grail of Vamp/Stingers). I was almost out bid, but loucky for me I won. Now ,with the exception of the newest Stinger,not counting my custom) my collection is complete.
