    What's the one TF that you most regret buying?

    Mine is a problem fixed, as I sold it with a bunch of my collection last year, but it was Armada Super Base Optimus Prime. I was actually anxious to get that toy, but when I finally got it, transformed it, looked at it... "What a piece of crap!" I thought. I still took a loss on it when it sold, but even to this day I still regret buying it. Anyone else?

    I don't really regret any of my purchases, but pretty much the entire Armada line for me. Transformations were so simple, but they were so gimmick-ridden that they had no poseability, which is a major factor for me

    The other thing I'll always regret is a KO Lion Voltron. That thing sucks at many levels...

    Alternator prime. I only own a few alternator molds(jeep, ford gt, viper, wrx, mustang, and some other I forgot), but this thing is the worst.

    It was fine when I took it outta the package, but after transforming it, it was the most boring piece of crap ever. Lame gun, fugly shoulders, poor articulation, and that's after a mediocre feeling transformation. Some bots are easier to transform, but it just works for them, alt prime is just so lame.

    But at least I got an alt prime cheap and learned how much I hate that mold before spending the cash on a nemesis prime "just because".

    The only thing I really hate and regret buying is the wwi megs and prime 2-pack.
    But the comic inside made me realise that war within kicks ass.

    Arm Sideswipe. Shit Brick.

    Eng Ironhide. Shitty design, really only gopt him to combine with Jetfire, which is pretty neat.

    Movie Voyager Megatron. Shitcicle.

    I second that Prime comment. It's funny really, I got him, and, hated him. So a full refund latter I get Nemesis Prime, and I adore him. (Sometimes a great colour sceme can make a figure, except Megs who will always be shit no matter what colour he is.)

    The Heroes of Cybertron figures I bought. I might have plunked down like $50 on these. They're neat and very detailed but I only got them at the time because I couldnt afford an actual TF collection. Now that I got a few MPs, some Alts, and some Classics, I have no use for them. I might sell them on this board soon though.

    All in all, I never disliked any of them. Their limbs are kinda stiff but they weren't being sold on their poseability. Just kinda wish I'd saved my money is all.

    Pretty much all of the Universe figures I bought, especially Razorclaw. He's kinda cool, but he's a pain in the butt to store.
