I’m sure back when we were kids we've run into situations where there have been Transformers we've seen in the shops which you really wanted and for whatever reason you were unable to get the item in question. To make it worse for whatever reason you never saw those items again until you were most likely a more adult collector. What’s your most vivid recollection of the situation above? For me it was the Headmaster Jr's at the tail end of the 80's See, the Tesco’s in my area used to be a two story store. Foodstuffs on the ground floor, clothing, household and other goods on the upper floor. Well when they decided to close down their household. Clothing and other goods department and convert to a single floor, they were having a closing down sale and my mom went in to go look for stuff to buy. While we were there I spotted the headmaster Jr's toys. These were toys I had never seen in person before, but recognised instantaneously as I had seen on the back of the headmaster's/Rebirth VHS and knew I wanted them. Now I’ve always been a mindful child I knew how things were tight in the household, I hardly ever got pocket money to save for anything and so I never really asked for much. But I wanted them so badly. They were even in a sale and thus I asked. My mom outright refused. And I was devastated. It stuck in my craw how my sister would make so many demands and never appreciated what she got and the one time I outright asked for something, I was refused. oh I understood the excuse, about the tightness of money, but I knew that in this case even if she couldn't afford to get them all, she had the money and the means to get at least one for me. to make matters worse that Tesco’s closed up that department soon afterwards and none of the other shops which sold toys ever had them on the shelves, not to mention the headmaster juniors went onto to be prominent characters in the marvel UK and latter Us transformer comics. years later I was able to purchase mostly complete(missing head guns) versions of the autobot headmaster jr's and I was able to get a Squeezeplay, but it's still the most painful missed chance I ever experienced so again, What was your Painful transformer related missed chance/purchase in your youth?
