    I did a quick search but couldn't find this. So, what TFs do you regret buying?

    Universe Voyager Vector Prime is mine. He is rather disappointing.

    Regret...buying...Transformers...is it possible?

    Actually, only one: Universe Hot Shot. It's literally the ONLY Transformer I've ever purchased and subsequently returned, with no thought of exchanging for another.

    Unfortunately, there are a few.
    Universe Hotshot - no real improvement from Armada
    Universe Galvatron - just a mess
    TF:A twins - just not my thing, got them for my daughter
    Armada leader Prime - bricktastic and boring

    Movie Leader Megatron. I hate that thing. I can't believe I paid $40 for that ugly, untransformable piece of junk.

    I sort of regret First Strike Prime, because I paid $40, but at retail, it wouldn't have been so bad.

    I also wish I'd waited for Premium Prime, but the one I have is Ok. :)

    I can say i don't regret buying any of them. The only regrets i hae are maybe not buying some sooner. I passed on the longest time for Uni. Blades. He is possibly the best Uni. Voyager besides Inferno.

    Movie Arcee and Movie Wreckage.

    They're "expanded universe" characters* (which I usually try to avoid) and they're just honestly not all that great looking to me, especially Wreckage. When I stand him with my other movie figs, he just sticks out. It's like trying to put a Beast Wars figure in with the movie stuff. He has a very "one of these things is not like the others" vibe.

    Arcee captures the movie aesthetic well enough, but there's just something about her that irks me when she's standing next to say, Bumblebee or Prime. I don't know how to put it, but she too just sticks out.

    In hindsight I should've just passed on both and gotten a voyager or something instead.

    * -
    Even if Arcee is in ROTF, she most likely won't look anything like the TF1 toy. The figure will still basically be a "rejected-concept-art-made-into-a-toy-anyway" character.

    Energon Wing Saber. He was stupid. I thought he was completely posable and he wasnt. And I hated the Energon Prime so I wasnt even trying that combo. It was a shame because I had high hopes.

    Several...some I disliked at the time and some have fallen into disfavor as my tastes have become more defined and focused.

    Masterpiece Megatron...all these years later and I still can't sell the damn thing!

    Movie 1 Arcee...nice design but the wheels ALWAYS get in the way of the shoulder joints!
