    So, what was the last thing you passed up and still regret to this day.

    A few years ago, I saw a set of Stunticons in a second hand type store, no accessories but a great price, but I wasn't too into my TF collecting at that point so I passed. I've been kicking myself ever since. It was more the idea of "sweet! G1 toys in a store for cheap!" as I'm sure I can get them online. But still, I wished I'd gotten it then......

    I should have boughten all the universe figures i wanted instead of saving for a car. I ended up spending the money on new clothes anyways.

    I really wish i got hound, inferno, and powerglide. Or even the mp3 player soundwave.

    I passed on most of the repainted G1 molds released over the last decade and now there are several I still want. I've picked up many of them in the last month but Road Rage, Crosscut and Fire Guts God Ginrai still top my want list.

    I passed on MP-01 when it was released back in.. 2003? 2004? I managed to finally get my hands on it last year with a 50% markup over MSRP, but it was a great deal for the time so I can't complain. I just wish I had gotten it sooner.

    Every day I am haunted by that one day we wandered into Target, saw Ultra Manus/Skywarp set on sale for $5 for some weird reason....didn't get it. I wasn't really aware of who Magnus was at that point, just thinking it was a white Prime. ='[

    So many. And I don't mean the ones passed up due to lack of funds, I'm talking the ones left on the shelf just because of a mental "Naaaah".

    I eventually got damn near them all in the end (in truth it sounds like a lot, but its not when compared to most people methinks), but the big regret for the longest time was Universe Nemesis Prime, before Universe ended and Classics began before it became Universe itself, talkin' 'bout the Big Convoy repaint.

    I walked by him at Super Target every time without picking him up, eventually he was gone. I eventually got him, for a lesser price than retail (w00t!), but I did regret not getting him in the first place.

    Back when Universe 1.0 was out I saw the Nemesis Prime mammoth at Target. Now I can't even find one on ebay.

    BFC? And for $750? what is this thing.

    I wish I even had the opportunity to buy deluxe two packs, or even a deluxe for a mere $5, well, £5 for me. Skywarp = Awesome, Magnus = Awesome. Actually, I don't think I've ever even seen it around here....

    I passed up on Primus when it was on clearance for $20. To this day, I still look at poor lonely Unicron and sigh. :(
