    Mine is Mirage. I've been watching him for, like, a year. I know that the longer I wait, the more I'll have to pay for him, but it's just so hard when you don't have the money. :cry

    ROTF Bruticus and Fansproject Munitioner/Explorer. I also want ROTF Superion but I can probably buy that soon since they still sell for a fairly reasonable price.

    I started collecting in 2007, but I was lucky enough to find most of the classics figures I needed from this Chinese mall that sold some. If it weren't for it I would have missed Astrotrain, Optimus Prime, Mirage, Starscream, and Ramjet.

    LD Black God Magnus.

    Don't think I can ever convince myself to fork out that kind of $$$ for him. :(

    European or Japanese Overlord. I was good about budgeting and what I was willing to pay way back in the day, and I skipped out on a complete in box (not sealed) U.K. Overlord that ended at $275. Granted, you never know what the actual max bid for the guy was, but compared to what he's going for now...I wish I would have jumped.

    Still, that would have been the single most expensive TF I would have bought had I gone for it, and while he's gone WAY up since, that's all hindsight. I just wasn't willing to pay more than $250. But that's how I did it back then, and on other guys I got some GREAT deals playing that game.

    Ah well.

    You can totally get him for cheaper than that, you know.

    Mine is all of Botcon 2011. Sadly, I don't have the $600+ for that lot.

    All the Classics pre-generations basically -_- but I refuse to pay $150 for Voyager UM and Deluxe Skywarp. It's utterly ridiculous. Oh, and mosta the 3rd party classics figures and accessories.

    The drawing Prize (B?) for Japanese Animated Earth mode Deluxe Optimus Prime.

    Solid colors with no battle damage. $90 is a spicy taco for a Deluxe figure I already have one of. (I've got the battle damaged version.)

    Classics Mirage for me as well. Along with FP City Commander and the not Bruticus set.

    Because I came into the collecting game so late I missed out on a lot of great figures.

    I also kind of want a Ghost Starscream. But hell, that's $100 I don't have. I guess I'll have to wait for my tax return next year.
