There are several Takara toys I would have liked to have owned instead of the Hasbro release, but couldn't justify the extra expense. Price is the only reason I regret buying Takara over Hasbro. But I have bought some Takara toys though that were worth the extra expense. I'd say those that I regret would be Binaltech since they were so expensive, at the time they were the Masterpieces of their day but I could have bought two Alternators for one Binaltech. I also bought several Galaxy Force toys when the show was new when in hindsight, I should have waited for the cheaper Cybertron releases. The hype of a new toyline can be overwhelming sometimes and hard to resist.
