    How about this one.

    I had a sealed in package ROTF Bruticus from when they first hit TRU. I didn't know that the FP Customs would turn out to be so bloody awesome (because I was judging by the Aerialbots custom they did, it didn't impress me). About 3 days before the first pictures hit, I gave him away to a friend's kid because I wasn't using him.

    AARGH. Now I see the ebay prices, but I'm still ordering the FP customs. I just hope to see him again at a reasonable price. I'm going to say this for luck, but when I get back to the states, I hope I get him from a store that had some extra on clearance.

    Sure, but nothing I don't think that wouldn't be too terribly hard to replace if I so wanted.

    No I havn't but I feel for those folks that have HAD to sell their figures. I couldn't imagine the feeling of losing something like that. I lost my figures when I was 14yrs old due to my parents but I won't do it again thats for sure.

    Lately I kind of regret selling Cybertron Soundwave and Vector Prime. I sold them a few years ago, but I kind of wish I kept them now.

    Hmm I haven't sold any Transformer yet, I guess. But I traded some toys when I was young and I regret every trade :( 

    I traded Nightbeat, Override and the back part of Rhino Rig. OK, that's not a Transformer, but having only half of Rhino looks pretty silly...
