    Have you ever wanted a TF that was even older than you but could never find
    because of the the times? Sometime you could never find that awesome toy you wanted,
    and missed out on getting that particular toy. Some of you may get it someday (Whether it's Ebay or on the Junkion Exchange),
    but what about those you could never find?
    What is the TF that keeps escaping your grasp?

    Pretty much everything on my wants list (See signature)
    for me, I missed out on so many Energon figures.
    I always wanted the Energon Omega Supreme, but Supreme class figures were
    always scarce in my area, and I could only afford basics.

    Same thing with the Cybertron line, but luckily I was able to go to Toys "R" Us in Edmonton, Alberta
    and snag a Cybertron Primus...and then the move came and wasn't able to save most of my Transformers.
    But I managed to save Unicron, he was one I would never let go.

    Nowadays, I scatter around the interwebz, hoping to find them, and rebuild my collection, searching every site. And just when all hope seemed lost, message of a new discovery drew me to an unknown forum called...TFW...

    I've missed some good figures due to not being into the line at the time(Leader Class Brawl, I'm looking at you). Others, I passed up on, then looked back at them and wanted them but they were gone (Mindewipe, Lockdown, Bludgeon (ROTF), HA Skids and Mudflap) Most of them I can just grab of the internet for a reasonable price, others, I don't even want to think of how I can pay for it ( Leader brawl, I'm still looking at you)

    ROTF Buster Prime and Jetfire Two-Pack.
    Most of the Classics/Henkei line (trying to rectify this now).
    The early HA figures (also trying to fix this), namely Barricade and Jazz.

    Cybertron Metroplex for me. I always wanted that toy, but when Christmas came around, it was either it or Primus. Even though Primus looks sick next to my Unicron, I still wonder what could have been.

    This! I missed out on it...those aftermarket prices are crazy, I missed the 2nd run as well due to money and time constraints...

    Yes Yes and Yes... I missed out on this perfect representation of Optimus Prime. I hit myself in the head for it as when it first came out it was only $90 something dollars for it. Now.......... (sigh) :(

    Missed out on ROTF Skystalker. I want one now because Mindwipe needs a partner, but I passed on it vecause I wasn't fond of the bow legged look it has. It's one thing to have chicken legs, long legs and short legs, but bow-leggedness is totally wrong. Being slightly bow legged myself...If anyone has it, and wants to sell it for cheap, pm me! And don't tell me you have SunSpot instead, because I dont want that.

    You made the right choice. Metroplex is a rancid toy.

    HA Jazz managed to wheedle away from me. I'm hoping for some sort of re-release, but it's doubtful.
