    I'm sure everyone has bought something on impulse before. Which Transformer did you buy without thinking? Where are they now?

    I'll start. The impulse I can think of right now is Galaxy Force Megalo Convoy...he just sucks out loud! Right now he is in a box with the other pre-2006 toys.

    Deluxe Deep Desert Brawl. I kinda just threw him in when I saw him sitting on the shelf all alone. Kinda glad I brought him home now. He's quite a nice figure.

    Yeah, I feel the same way! I just saw him one day. I did not know how he looked in robot mode, but I loved his weaponry and tank mode look!

    Landmine from the first movie. I saw him for next to nothing at Walmart- $3. He's on one of my shelves now. Actually a pretty cool figure, as long as his headlight assembly stays on.

    Definitely Universe Darkwind. I got drawn in by his flashy color scheme. He looks okay in both modes I guess but his bland simple nature and dull transformation suck horribly. He is the kibbliest shellformer I've ever seen. All I can say is D'oh. Especially since the new redeco of the mold looks much better.

    Universe Heavy Load. It's in the back of whatever display I happen to have up.

    I'm not one for selling TF's, but that one might have to go.

    TFA Grimlock....


    Saw him at Wal-Mart, was all "OH! They have a toy of him? >.<"

    Picked him up...he's a nice figure.

    Walmart RID Ruination with the desert coloring. Absolutely horrible colors. The "urban camouflage" look so much better than the desert mess.

    I've succumb to the impulse buy many a times. Latest one I can think of is the TFA LCD Handheld game. Can't say I'm regretting it. Honestly, I still don't know what to really think of it. XD

    Speaking of impulse buys, I'll gladly take the Megalo Convoy off of the OP's hands. ^_~
