    Ever regret getting a certain item or TF instead of another TF? If so, share. I'll start. When I was younger (around 8-10,) I bought a digimon toy instead of RiD Ultra Magnus. I regret this now s I've had RiD Prime for a good few years. :cry

    I might live to regret buying all the Liokaiser pieces individually instead of together. We shall see..... I still can't find Gaihawk and Killbison.

    I became disheartened with Transformers and became a Monsters In My Pocket fan for a while as a kid. I've long since regretted doing that since there were a number of late eighties toys I wish I had gotten like Thunderwing.

    Buying Animated Supreme Optimus Prime. I was just in a money-burning mood I guess.

    I regret buying every G1 toy I did over the past year. Decided that those aren't for me (bricktacular), so I sold them all. I'm far from breaking even. Waste of good cash.

    Only times I regret buying TFs is when they come out with a bigger/better/newer version not too long after.

    I'm looking at you '07 Leader Movie Prime :sly2:

    I was in the same boat with you until I got David Kaye to sign the windshield of mine. Now it's an awesome display piece.

    As a kid, I bought a Star Wars Tie Fighter passing up a Laser Optimus Prime. I eventually got the OP a few years back, but for like $75.

    I regret buying movie Payload and Swindle instead of Ironhide. Could have saved me lots of money.

    Beast Machines Megatron. And Cheetor. Both just disappointing figures all around.

    I regret not going to every Botcon over the last 15 years.

    I regret buying Supreme Cheetor (and every other BM figure for that matter)

    I regret selling my G1 collection when I did. I should've waited until I was a member of this board and sold them to you guys instead of the douche bag comic book store.

    Lots of regrets. But I still am a pretty happy Transfan :)

    I regret buying virtually no TF's at all in the 90's while I collected Joes, Star Wars, and Spawn. I really kick myself for not grabbing up G2 and Machine Wars stuff when it was readily available.

    Two regrets, being a capitalist little bastard at 12 and selling off all my childhood toys, those TF's have been very expensive to replace! I'm sure I'm not the only one with this particular regret.

    Also, probably shouldn't have sold Fort Max, got him 90-95% complete for under £50. Sold him within a year for £220, a good return, but try finding one for that price now.

    I recently traded my ROTF optimus for a ROTF Megatron to wait for the new Optimus with guns instead of the 2 axe
