    We all have had the one toy we saw on TV or in a catalog add that we always wanted but never got. Out of all the toys I saw as a child but couldnt get my hands on this was prob the most elusive. I think I remember seeing it in a magazine one time and that was it. Well today just out of pure dumb luck while looking for something else I came across this picture. (now I want to get it again LOL)
    Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the
    Heinz Ketchup-h-57 burger blaster.

    What was yours?

    (BTW if this is in the wrong section could a MOD please move it to the correct area)

    MP-10 - Optimus + Trailer
    Generations Amazon 2010 Unicron

    Don't see any mention of transformers there. (Unless that ketchup blaster transforms)

    Maybe this should be in the toyark?

    Uh, check the title?

    Maybe I read it wrong? I thought he was referring to the one Transforming Toy you always wanted as a child, not just any toy..

    MP Grimlock. Had the chance to grab him new in sealed box for 100 shipped about 6 or 7 months ago and I should have grabbed him! (kicks self in ass)

    Primus. I watched the Takara version on BBTS go on sale, thought about it, figured since he was on clearance he wasn't too hot so I'd wait to grab him. Yeah, that's long gone now.

    Maybe the title says it, but he's referring to any toy that you wanted but never got. (Not just TFs)

    Well, considering you said "transforming toy" and not "Transformer", I must confess that to this day I regret never getting the Astro and Delta Megazords from Power Rangers in Space. For some reason I thought their design and combination was really cool, but I was never able to find them in a store on the rare occasion that I had the money to buy one of them.

    In terms of actual Transformers, I do regret never managing to assemble a Superion Maximus team. I got 2/5 of the way there, but Energon was long over by then and my local Family Dollar never got in the wave of Universe Basics that was supposed to have included Terradive and Treadshot, two of the figures I was missing.

    I've always wanted a decent Robotech Alpha Fighter/Legioss Armo Diver that is a poseable, transformable figure, doesn't fall apart and doesn't cost a fortune.

    CM's Corp made a decent one, but it was small and I'd have to sell myself into indentured servitude to afford it.

    Oddly enough, I remember that Heinz Burger Blaster and really wanted one too.

    I have always wanted a bunch of those old McDonalds transforming food. The robots and the dinosaurs. I randomly check Evilbay but, have never been able to pull the trigger.

    Transformers:
    G1 Jetfire
    Actually could have owned one, albeit without all his Addon parts and with one arm Broken. Sadly, that very figure was taken home by a younger family member and summarily DESTROYED (I about fainted when I saw Jetfire torn apart)

    [Right after I wrote that, I found a G1 Jetfire on eBay for $36 BIN. Damn, it feels good to be a gangster!]

    Either iteration of Primus
    Just never seems like I can find one for a reasonable price

    Death Star Darth Vader
    Actually bid on one a while back, but retracted the bid for whatever reason.

    I passed on the RoTF Leader Prime that connects with Jetfire...now it's over $200. Don't need an extra Jetfire :(  If anyone has one that they're willing to part with at a low price PM me! :)

    If we count ones I wanted as a kid but got as an adult, the number one for me is RiD Optimus. I was so glad when I finally got one off a board member. He's one of my favorite prime designs. Also I always wanted a Brave Maximus, but never even knew a toy existed as it never reached US shores. Got a good deal on him from another generous board member

    Just talking about stuff I wanted as a kid but never got

    The original Megazord+Dragonzord:They were discontinued before I got into Power Rangers
    Armada Prime: To a young kid, that self transforming base is pure magic
    Skybite
    RiD Train Brothers

    Ones I've missed as an adult
    FP Bruticus
