    The one that springs to mind is Beast Machines Primal Prime. I remember seeing him when he first came out, but I already had Optimal Optimus and just regarded him as an unnecessary repaint. Now his color scheme has grown on me, but his aftermarket price is way too high.

    Aside from that, I regret not jumping on the Masterpiece bandwagon sooner. I've already started acquiring some, but they, too, have risen in price considerably since first being released. I remember seeing some of the Walmart seekers on clearance back in the day...

    I didn't try finding MP10 Op on TRU.com as hard as I should have though I did look several times a week & went out on hunts. I love my YOTH but it would be nice to have both. I feel like it may get released again though. That or my Prime just reps the bling.

    Turned down MP-01 (20th anniversary) for Cybertron Plex.

    But I was just a kid.

    That Generations Skids that I had in my hand a month and a half ago, and haven't been able to find again since. :( 

    And TF Prime Silas. I saw it a million times and never picked it up, and of course when I'm done my Prime set, that's the only one I'm missing! Haha!

    It was RTS Bumblebee back in 2010, right when I was getting back into Transformers. I grabbed his wavemate Junkion Motorbike, but I Passed on BB and it bugged me until recently when I Traded for one from a Canadian user for one of the figures I had but didn't like.

    REALLY should have gotten ROTF Lockdown when I had the chance. I've had to settle for the Animated one, and the AOE one, while okay, is just...I'M SERIOUS ABOUT THAT FUCKING BEER GUT PEOPLE.

    - Bayverse Deluxe scale Ironhide - I passed on it hoping for a red G1 recolor but that never happened.
    - Universe Inferno - At the time I was unsure if I wanted him as a Voyager and I didn't like the lack of a ladder.
    - Takara Prototype Astrotrain reissue - I remember the initial preorders were reasonable but I just didn't have the funds.
    - Brave Maximus - I had the chance to buy him for $200 but it was my first year after I got married and we were broke.

    TRU MP THundercracker. I had just gotten lucky enough to get my hands on MP10 online, but I never had the same luck with Thundercracker. Plus I was broke after buying Prime and my closest TRU is fifty miles away. I can still get him for like 100 bucks, but there's always something special about the thrill of the hunt- even if it is an online hunt.

    The short answer is yes, but the longer answer, I think of a damn one right now.
    Probably bc I i've purchased most of the ones I missed in the after market already.

    Hmm, I was bidding on an auction that ended this morning and went $21, with $11 for shipping.

    I was the guy going up to $13. If you were the one to bid me up...
