    have anyone ever sold off their collection or part of their collection and regretted it later? I'm asking because I was think about selling some of my TF but I might regret it later.

    Another one of those questions that have been asked before.
    Yes, Ive recently sold a mint condition G1 Hound, and an E-Hobby's Starscream's Ghost.
    The Ghost I regret more than Hound because I got him at a good price and I haven't seen that price since then.
    Hope when I'm ready for another one, I can get it for a descent price.

    Also regret selling WST Skywarp, but it was at the time I thought I was getting out of the hobby so, oh well...................

    If you got a good TF for a good price, you will regret it later.

    Yes because money was scarce at the time (it is now but I'm not on the border of homelessness now days).

    I mean I had a megatron and they were going pretty cheap back then..now, fuhget about it.

    The bigger regrets was being forced to toss the ones I had as a kid in the trash. My dad was an asshat. Luckily with the exception of Gnaw ,and a lame pretender I don't really want, I have all my childhood ones back in the form of reissues.

    I sold off some of my G1 collection when I was young and not that interested in TF's anymore. My parents were so upset that I did, and I truly regret it now, however, I still have at least a couple boxes full at their place since the mid 80's. I'm going to look them over during the holidays and feel like a kid again, can't wait ! :drool:  My advice is if you have figures that are hard to come by, especially G1 originals or rare exclusives, hang on to them and learn from others like myself.

    I sold almost all my TFs in the Summer/Fall of 2009 and don't regret it one bit. I did keep a handful or favorites like the Technobots, Metroplex, Ultra Magnus, Rodimus. The only one I regret getting rid of was my Purple Galvatron. But those TFs had been sitting on shelves not getting touched for years... and I ended up with a life size Bumblebee in the end. :)

    A few years ago, I sold the vast majority of my G1 Transformers collection. As much as I liked and still like G1, I don't regret selling them.

    Never sold any so I got no regrets...now not buying something when it was out I have a few. Energon Beachcomber, Energon Omega Sentinal, and Classics Devastator to name a few. Universe Hardhead and Red Powerglide would be another two but thanks to TJ Maxx they are no longer the case.

    I REGRET NOTHING
    Except for buying an incomplete Ruination. I forgot how much of a hassle it is to find combiner parts.

    A little over a year ago I decided I was getting out of collecting and I sold of my entire Classics collection including Rodimus and Fansproject Superion...worst decision ever. About a month and a half later I changed my mind and have been trying to rebuild ever since.

    NEVER SELL OFF YOUR CLASSICS COLLECTION...YOU WILL REGRET IT LATER. At least that's my opinion I know of several people who have done this too and rebuiliding always costs more than what you sold them for.

    The way Hasbro and the third party companies are cranking out Classics (CHUG, RTS... whatever) it doesn't look lile this line is going to be over anytime soon.

    I don't even wanna think about how much money I wasted on Trilogy & Bayverse figures and when I finally came to my senses, I realised no one wanted them so they ended up being donated to various charities. So my big regret is not investing that wasted money on G1s in the first place. I could have owned a Fort Max by now... :lol
