    I'd say RTS Rodimus, but I got an awesome Cyclonus out of it.

    And Doubleclutch was a gift.

    And ROTF Whirl had a cool Wreckage redeco with him.

    aaaaaaaaand Clocker came with a decent little Hardtop.

    Since I don't count those, ROTF Ransack, Classic Camero Bumblebee and DOTM Jolt are up there.

    In retrospect, spending over $50 for Classics Windcharger was a bit dumb. But at the time it seemed like he'd never make it to U.S. shores, so I took the gamble.

    So far, not a single regret has been made with my Transformers purchases. Then again, I have yet to break the 30 dollar mark for a single figure either. Mostly new Prime stuff, which has been very cool. :)

    I hated Cybertron Backstop so much I blew him up with fireworks.

    ROTF Blazemaster is pretty shitty too. DOTM HA Leadfoot is utter garbage...

    Classics Optimus/Megatron two pack

    I would also say ROTF Shadow Command Megatron, but damn does he sell for a lot. If I start selling parts of my collection, he's the first to go.

    TFTM Leader Megatron.

    Except that, considering the money I made on him... maybe not so much regret. :lol

    I guess that'd be Bombshock or ROTF Mixmaster, but only because I paid the full $30 retail for em. They're 2 of my favorite toys, and they're really only being mentioned here because had I waited a little longer & looked online, I could've gotten em cheaper.

    Having a little buyer's remorse at the moment over Cyb. Megatron. I can't stand when the toy has half the vehicle mode on its back doing nothing.

    I keep trying to find the right large-scale toy for a custom I want to get started on (and never finish like all my others), but I just can't find the right toy. Nothing is working.

    Such an easy answer, although my answer is a tie between Universe Galvatron and PRiD Bumblebee.

    Animated Ironhide - What a boring toy.

    Sure it was only $10 at the time, but considering it was my first Animated toy and the fact that I chose him over Hot Rod had me upset for a while.
