    What is the one transformers you would score if you could jump back in time?

    Mine is masterpiece Grimlock, its a work of art but i just cant justify spending that can of money on a toy right now and he is only going to go up in price.

    Only G1. I got into the game during the first wave of Beast Wars.

    Now I can say I missed on the FP CJ upgrade and Superion upgrade because I was a little late on jumping into the 3rd party stuff.

    Thankfully I have been on top of pretty much everything else....oh and Punch Counterpunch. I was not a TFCC member yet and relied on Anabolik1 to purchase him for me. He screwed me over and alas I am without any PCP :(

    A lot of Fansproject and Classics Universe toys. Fortunately though, I got almost everything I missed. Just need Ratchet, Powerglide, and the FP Superion add-on kit.

    More beast wars figures as a kid, as well as keep better care of my collection. I'd have a good 20-30 more figures I just took care of my collection. dammit 8 year old Jacer! :banghead:

    I haven't missed any because I wasn't collecting, but I have missed some due to poor distribution or just being poor at the time and not being able to afford all the things I wanted.

    It doesn't make me fantasize about time travel though - I mean they are all available on ebay as we speak.

    FE Bulkhead. I was already collecting but I could've bought him any time on eBay before he, along with the rest of the FE's, were cancelled. Now I'm stuck with high prices that are only gonna get worse.

    ummm...a lot of the cybertron line i really like, slowly getting them though, i got in at a good time imo, tail end of alts, got most of them from a member for a great deal. and beginning of classics, all for retail or less. g1 is taking some time to complete though lol. but that's half the fun

    Buster Prime. Granted they did reissue him for DOTM but I can't see myself spending $250 on a Leader 2-pack which should only cost $175 tops, even with import prices. While I was in Japan, I bought myself Striker Optimus instead (such an awesome figure) and for Christmas my wife got me Jetwing Prime (which is basically a revamped Buster mold that includes the buster cannon, updated abs sculpt, and the epic jetpack and gatling guns... it's just missing the paint apps and flames pinstriping of the Buster figure) so I don't really mind missing out on Buster Prime in the end.

    I really should have picked up Cybertron Voyager Soundwave when I first started collecting in December 2006, when one of my local Targets still had Cybertron toys on shelves. That, and most of the Classics/Universe Classics and Alternators toys, too.

    And even when I was working on collecting TFs, there were a lot of TFs -- mainly Movie ones -- that I missed out on and wished I got them or was able to find them.

    So I have a whole lot of catching up to do in addition to doing my best to stay caught up with all of the toys I want.

    Classics Prime and Classics Mirage, although I found a better stand-in the former, and bought the more exclusive and sexier deco of the latter. I guess the worst really is missing Universe Ratchet and Prowl/Silverstreak.

    Botcon 07 and 08 stuff, Crystal Henkei Optimus, and Wildrider, and some Henkei figures. I started back collecting during the first movie, and didn't really get into Classics till near the end of 08, probably didn't buy "expensive" figures till 09, and didn't realize that I loved Henkei figures till 2010. I have tracked down some, but am still about 12 short of feeling "complete".

    Other than that, I wasn't collecting during Alternators, and am missing 4 of them still, and didn't decide to complete Animated (deluxe and above) till they were gone, so I am missing Roadbuster Magnus, and clear Lockdown. I will track those all down when I have money and time.
