    Because I had sold (or traded, I think) my G1 deco movie Mixmaster I had completely forgotten that I owned the Hoist figure (Longarm redeco) that came with him, until just last week!

    I constantly forget I own all three classics coneheads, which baffles me as I quite like them, but for some reason always think I never bought them all.

    I always buy duplicates, but not on purpose. New toys only though.

    A long time back I had put my Spychanger RID Optimus Prime in a plastic baggie along with some Gundam figure, left it in a drawer and forgot about 'em.

    One move and four years later I rediscover them while searching for something else. They are now displayed in their proper places.

    I often forget that I own Cybertron Metroplex... odd considering he's the tallest toy in my collection.

    I do his some times when out on "the hunt" or browsing the BST areas. In the BSTs its not so bad cuz I can just open up my spreadsheet and look, but when I'm out of town on the hunt its a bitch sometimes; trying to decide to pass on a first or buy hen because you can't remember if I have it or not. I should add that this doesn't normally happen with major characters but with the secondary characters it can be kinda hard to keep track of them all.

    I don't remember toys by the character, but I do remember the toy itself. I've got an amazing physical memory, so I never have to transform a toy more than once before I remember how to do it forever, I never forget if I own that mold of a figure, I can nearly immediately tell differences between versions of molds, etc.

    However, I kept forgetting I had the Star Wars: Clone Wars R4-P17 figure.... I ended up buying.... nine of them? I had been hunting for it for so long it became an instinct buy.

    It's happened a couple times with various things in my sizable toy collection. The only TF I've forgotten owning is Animated Lockdown, who is in the back of a dark shelf in my display. It was a somewhat impulsive buy when TRU had a bunch of Animated figures for like half price.

    I had forgotten, until recently, I had Classics Ramjet. I just happened to be looking through a box the other day, and there he was staring right back at me. I had totally forgotten about him.
