Transformers that you never thought you'd get... that you got.

So, we all see those certain figures, and we say "Well, I'll never own THAT!".

Maybe because it's rare, maybe because it's expensive, or maybe it's just so awful-looking that you couldn't see yourself buying it, we all say that we just won't own that figure.

Until we do. This is that thread.

For me, I never thought I'd get my hands on a Masterpiece Grimlock. They're always SOOO expensive, and I could never really justify to myself buying it. But, luckily for me, I found one at an entirely reasonable price here on the boards, and I'm now the proud owner of an MP Grimlock. And I couldn't be happier.

On the other end of the spectrum, Supreme Cheetor was one of those figures I could never see myself owning. "It's too big", I said. "I hate Beast Machines figures", I said. "It's a piece of crap", I said.

Until I realized just how many Cheetor figures I owned, and set out to get more of them. And so, I came into a Supreme Cheetor. And honestly? I... I like him. I have no idea how this black magic witchcraft was achieved, but somehow I like this dude. I can't really explain WHAT about him I like, just that he's kind of endearing to me, I guess.

prime commander ironhide. well, any of the prime commanders period, but ironhide especially. my area never got past wave 1 of them until a few weeks ago, but it was just magnus, starscream, battle tactics bulkhead, skyquake and one each of optimus/megatron. no ironhide or dreadwing ever showed up until tonight, when i went to target and bam, arrrnhahd was right there. bought him on sight.

HA Jazz.

Then I found him for $20 at Winners.
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.

I hate Armada figures, yet I own some. I think they migrated through the door somehow.

Otherwise, I could never personally justify the typical price for a nearly perfect G1 Shockwave, but when I found one at a show for $50 I couldn't pass it up.
"It is only logical, as I gaze upon the spark of this femme-bot, that I guide my dexterous manipulator and apply additional servos to the task of making it stronger, so that she may comprehend a femme-bot's expected role. Logic dictates."

i honestly hated the prime line despite loving the show. they seemed like such a downgrade in size and detail from prior lines that i couldnt be bothered to care. until i bought arcee as a classics chromia. a few weeks later and im hunting for Dreadwing and paying top dollar for first edition bumblebee...
