    In the spirit of some other like minded threads... What's the best deal you've ever passed on, then kicked yourself for later?

    I saw a clear chase MyClone Optimus Prime with energy ax on evil-Bay go for less than $20 once. Didn't get it at the time cause I didn't realize how rare it is. Haven't seen it since. If anyone has one for sale, let me know!

    Easy.

    $150 for a MISB G1 Mirage in a BIN auction a couple of years ago. It was snatched seconds before I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger.

    I still don't have a Mirage.

    $65 for the JBW puzzle with the white Lio Jr. at Botcon '05. I almost bought it, then went to look at some other stuff, came back and it was gone. Hopefully I can find one this year.

    Classics Jetfire, full price, the other week. Didn't have the money at the time and now I may never see him again as it seems stores are only getting *one* in and not restocking ever.
