    I received my G1 reissue Sideswipe yesterday and like it so much that I could kick myself for never getting it as a kid (I clearly remember finding it at a store but deciding not to get it for some inane reason). I think he's easily one of the coolest looking TFs in the entire line as both a robot and in his alternate mode.
    So what are some TFs that you currently have that you could kick yourself for not getting as a kid?

    Most of the G1 figures I have. When I was a kid I just didn't have very many. Now...things have obviously changed.

    Most of my G1. But specifically? Trypticon! I recently aquired him, and I have wanted one since I was a kid.

    Swoop. I remember looking at him but deciding on Perceptor instead. Perceptor is cool but a dino beats a microscope any day of the week.

    (g1) Optimus Prime - never got one as a kid, Got my first one when G2 reissued the mold.

    Actually, that's not %100 true. I had Ultra Magnus, and repainted the cab red and blue. Looked pretty good before I actually tried to handle/play/transform it. (I was good at painting models, but knew nothing about making paint durable.)

    Masterpiece Prime ofcourse. To have him and be the only one with him when I was a kid, make everyone so jealous lol.

    All of the G1 Dinobots, Fortress Maximus, Trypticon, Scorponok, Gnaw, and Shockwave (probably lots of others too.)

    Jazz, Slag and Unicron. One day I hope to get the Ultra Magnus that has eluded me for 23 years.

    G1 Overlord. PMOP was probably my favorite Transformer growing up, and I think Doubledealer and Ratbat had to lead my Decepticons for want of someone better. :(

    Optimal Optimus.

    I saw him in K-Mart as a kid and he was the biggest Transformer I'd ever seen.

    i wish i had bw inferno for more than 2 hours. he was really fun while i had him, but my cousin stole him from me, right after i got him :/ i was only 5 or 6, he was like 13 or 14 -_-;...jerk.

    but other than that, i wish i had all the characters that appeared in beastwars before transmetals. i did have quite a few though :] but sadly they ended up lost and dissasembled due to theyre cursed ball joints and my 5 year old hands. grr! O:<

    Toys I could've had as a kid but never got: Omega Supreme, Jetfire, Shockwave, Blitzwing, Perceptor, Megatron and most of all, Soundwave.

    (Technically I'm not sure if I had Metroplex or not; if I didn't, then add him to the list too.)

    Toys I couldn't have had as a kid because they didn't exist yet: The entire Classics line (well, except for Galvatron) of G1 characters. Though the transformations would've taken longer for me to get my guys into battle mode and do mid-air or moving transformations, the added posabilty and ability to store weapons within/attached toy in vehicle mode have been a nice touch. Plus, the ability to own a G1-style Ratchet and Ironhide with actual heads that come with it is always a plus (even if the vehicle modes a are a mess). The Classics line is responsible for turning me on to the Hot Rod and Cyclonus characters, who I hadn't been big on until getting the Classics toys of each.

    Alot of my G1s I have now, I didn't have as a kid. I just recently got the KO Shockwave and I always wanted him as a kid. I remember a kid from school brought SW to class and he let me borrow him for a day or two...I always wanted him...
