    RotF Voyager Megatron was one of those. RtS Tracks was another. RtS Windcharger as well. Bought them all.

    That too. Then again, in his case, I kinda wish I hadn't. Kind of a crappy toy.

    First Edition Optimus Prime. Saw a bunch at TRU when I got mine, never again. Also, TFA Rodimus. I found him by accident the day DOTM figures launched, from then on, I only saw Ironhides.

    Energon Dinobots. I saw them in a Walmart while I was out of town. Didn't have the money to buy them then, and I never saw them in a store again.

    ROTF Deluxe Ratchet, Brawn, and Lockdown. Bought the latter two, but never saw any of them afterward. Also the Universe Legends Cosmos, Warpath, Wheelie, and Rodimus. Only saw 'em once, and I bought one of each but passed on Rodimus, but never saw them in stores ever again after that. Oh, and Cyberverse Guzzle, which makes me glad I went ahead and bought him there and then.

    Masterpiece Rodimus. I was kicking myself for MONTHS for having had it in my hand and then putting him back on the shelf, only to come back later and never see him in a store again. And the local weekly toy show had sellers selling the Hasbro version for a ridiculous $100+ pretty much instantly.

    Luckily, tru online had him briefly again right around Christmas, and on sale for cheaper than I would have got him if I'd bought him that day in-store. Close one.

    Leader Ironhide, at TRU (and I bought that one)

    HA Barricade at Target (bought that one, too)

    HFTD Highbrow , also at Target (did not buy him)

    RTS Lugnut and Grapple -- saw a whole pile of them at Ross. Exactly once. They got cleaned out almost immediately.

    I completely forgot about that one! I only saw him once as well, and only the one toy. Poor thing was buried behind a swarm of Bumblebees, and since it was one I had been wanting I bought him. But I never saw Air Raid though.

    A few years back I saw Universe Cyclonus and Universe Ironhide hanging on pegs at TARGET, and I picked up Cyclonus. I never saw Ironhide after that, and I've been kicking myself ever since.

    Mine would have to be ROTF Shadow Command Megatron, found 1 at Walmart without knowing what it was thinking "wow he looks really neat compared to the reg leader" I bought the one they had and never saw him again anywhere
