    All the time. But I don't regret it. I generally find a use for multiples in the displays.

    I bought a figure once, thinking I'd already gotten one before, but it turned out I hadn't.

    Don't know why I thought I bought RTS Legends Starscream already when I'd never seen them in stores up until that point.

    Nope, I never forget what figures I already have but I have a replacement Cybertron scout Scattershot because the backpack on my first one broke off and that was when Cybertron began but I display both now on my shelves (I can fake the backpack on my broken one to look like it's not broken but only in vehicle mode)

    Only with A/E/C shit, which I didn't really care about or display. To this day I still find toys I forgot I'd bought like Mudflap or Scattershot.
    I'm slightly more discerning with my collection now.

    RiD clear Hot Shot - ended up buying a second one not realising I already had that deco. Just as well it was $2!

    No. Even with 500+ figures, I still know what I have.

    Actually, I just did that for the first time a few months ago. I forgot I had a Cyberverse Topspin. When I went to put him on the shelf I was like, "oops" and felt pretty stupid. It was easy enough to return it though since I still had the recepit :eek:

    Well, I once bought a Revenge of the Fallen leader Optimus twice, but only because my first one broke, and this one was on sale. I don't know if that counts.

    I've also re-bought some movie figures, after selling them off previously, if any of those kind of things count. But never because I forgot I had the figure.

    Not unless I have to return the first one for some reason and get a new one. That be the only time I would do that.

    No. All doubles are my family not knowing what I had and buying me them again or on purpose, like with Animated Prowl.

    Yeah, if the character or particular mould of a toy interests me. Recently bought X2 Skyshadow. IMHO totally worth it.

    I always buy two of every toy. One to open and one to keep unopened. ALthough, I'm starting to stop doing that now except on MOTUC. Hence why I have been selling off so many Transformers.

    Nope. The only doubles I have purchased were on purpose.

    I only bought the same figure once and that was to make a custom.
