    Have you ever had any regrets when buying toys? I have one.:eek: 

    I was at a Walmart, where Universe and Movie toys were plentiful.:D  There, i bought Universe Galvatron...

    ...AND PASSED UP MOVIE FRACTURE!

    I look back on the event and am quite dissapointed in myself. Had I known that Galvatron was so horrible, and Fracture/Mirage/Dragstrip was so good, I would have gotten Fracture!:cry

    I'm a completist at heart and I got in to the Univers line full force, buying everything I saw... When I started opening guys like Cheator and Dinobot I quickly lost my impulse for the line and restricted myself to G1 Homages... So yeah, I regret all the ones I bought from the Universe line that wasnt G1 inspired. (about 10 TFs)

    I regretted every simple G1 figure I have bought over the last year and a half. Their brick-tacularness didn't do anythng for me, and I definitely incurred a net loss in the process of selling them. Other figures I have regretted buying due to I ended up not liking their paintjobs and wish I got different versions (some of which I have sold since then and bought the "right" ones only to still have incurred net losses. Those ones include Cybertron Hot Shot (both kinds), Red alert (deluxe) Vector Prime (gold version), Movie Fracture, Universe Powerglide, Offroad Ironhide, and Movie Evac.

    Yup. Have had my share of regrets.

    Marvel Xover Human Torch, its waist cannot stay in place and one of his legs is too floppy to stand straight.

    I agree with Galvatron and Rampage, but Skids and Mudflap? They're hard to stand up, but I really like them.
