Yeah, 90% of my Animated guys came from Toys R Us, it was the only place I could find them gonk I only ever saw Atomic Lugnut and Wreck-Gar at TJ Maxx, picked up the latter, but I had a regular Lugnut when I found him and didn't want to spend the money on repaints (though I did think he was cool looking). Found 3 or 4 others in my collection through a tiny TF collectors con and ebay (the Jet-twins were my biggest splurge, but it was worth it, I love them xD).
If you count the 4 McDonalds toys amungst them, they were lucky finds at flee markets xD I haven't found many at Flee markets, but those I have I've gotten some pretty awesome deals on heart The McDonald's toys were 25 - 50 cents a pop, got Inferno from Armada for $3 (missing his weapons though xp ) and a fully functioning Ultimate Bumblebee (from the 2007 movie) for $8 (he's missing his missile accessory and two small panel, but you don't notice them unless he's in car mode).
If I had more money I'd totally have all the TFA guys I want, but... I don't gonk And when it gets to the point where they're double or triple (with shipping) what they would have been in retail I tend to sigh and step back. The jet-twins were an exception to the rule. Lol.
