    Any of the TRU exclusives, because I no longer have a TRU anywhere near where I live.
    Though even when I did, it was roughly an hours drive away.

    If we're strictly speaking about current toys that are in the store (or were, at least fairly recently). Definitely Shadow Scyther, as I missed him on pre-order. Snowman Superion add-on (I wasn't in the Classics game much when that was released). I'd like to get a SG Rodimus or Wildrider for Scyther, but 400-ish dollars for a classics figure is pretty rough to me. I have a suspicion that at least Wildrider (and SG Rodimus to a degree) will go down in price next year once the initial feeding frenzy of people wanting to pick him up for Scyther dies down. I think mostly the only people who are wanting him are those who did get Scyther, and since there's a limited number of those people, I think things will settle out.

    I can almost guarantee that the next figure I miss out on will be the one announced for the next fansproject package.

    Most toys really, given my limited cash resources.

    Blue Big Convoy. I had enough at the time, but it went to buy my car. What a fool I was [/sarcasm]

    Really though, I wish I could get him :/

    VSA Giftset! (Yes, I know I'd said this many times before...) :( 

    Edit: Also, Mail-Away Thunder Arrow & OTFCC Hotspot/Defensor comes to mind.

    I have a very long list which includes:

    - MISB Pretender Bumblebee with human shell or MOSC Pretender Bee
    - MOSC G1 pre-rub sign and rub sign Bumblebee
    - All colors MIB Microchange Wagen (pre-Transformers Bumblebee)
    - MISP TFTM Takara EZ Tsutaya exclusive metallic gold Bumblebee
    - MOSC TFTM Lawson's exclusive metallic Gold Dx Bumblebee
    - MISP ROTF Takara EZ clear version Bumblebee

    Availability of funds is the main reason I still don't have those figures... Or opportunity cost, like I got a new mobile phone because my old one was acting up, instead of getting a MOSC G1 red Bee. :)

    For me it's the last couple of Walmart exclusives and one Target one.

    I mean Target Universe Leo Prime, and Walmart Hardhead, Skyfall and Powerglide.

    They all hit at a time when my cash was very low and restricted. I still see them popping up occasionally, but the cost for some of them puts me off.

    Want but can't get? I guess Lucky Draw Black God Magnus since there are what, three of them, if I remember what I read correctly (I could be seriously mistaken)?

    Among stuff that's hard to find/only pops up for sale every so often, Beast Wars Botcon Japan (or whatever convention it was) Double Punch is something I'd like to pick up in the future but it may not be for a while since eBay's not exactly littered with them.

    I'd love to have an AFA 90 set of MISB G1.

    :lol 

    I've got a list, but like many of you, expendable cash is a major issue.

    Every single Beast Wars Botcon exclusive, and the headmaster Fangry/Wilder...

    For recent figures it would have to be Skystalker, HA Barricade, and Animated Swoop.

    Japanese Dino-cassettes. I have a mental block that makes it very hard to spend several hundred dollars for 5 dollar toys. :)

    Botcon Beast Wars figures.

    It's so annoying, I can find a purple and black repainted movie Starscream with Skywarp slap on the box at Walmart only. Yet the characters I grew up with and cared about have tribute figure repaints as a Botcon exclusive. Sometimes I really hate Botcon.

    For once, I'm reasonably contented. I got my Animated Rodimus last week (not cheap for a UK fan...) and Animated Ironhide is winging his way to me from Hong Kong, so that'll be my animated collection more or less rounded off.

    I guess I'd love an original Beast Wars Optimus Primal. I remember coveting that badboy when it was first in the Argos Catalogue (£14.97, if i remember right), but alas, I was 13 or 14, and thus too old (and far too cool) for toys.
