    This happens to me all the time with Beast era figures because I remember playing with the toys the other kids in school had.

    Nope, I still remembered which figures I had even when I lost interest in TFs.

    Can't say I've ever thought I bought something when I didn't, it's more like this situation-

    "Oh yeah, that guy. I have him somewhere..."

    *looks*

    "Wait, no. I think I sold it."

    Not figures, but comics yes.

    To this day I'm still convinced I have an issue of Nextwave, which I can't find anywhere. I remember reading it as well.

    Sometimes the exact opposite, usually with smaller figures like legends. A few times I picked up a few to buy and my wife was like don't we already have those. Then It clicked oh yeah I already have Oil Pan.

    I constantly think that I have a lot of CHUG figures when in fact I only have 3.

    Nope. Even with my small army of mini-cons I know EXACTLY which ones I'm missing and which ones I have.

    Well, we're getting the retool as a later Generations release, so you can get one of him to pick up the missing rider you need.

    Or you can take the extra Wreck-Gar and several of the rider/bike combos and stage one of those circus motorbike performances, with the bike-less Wreck-gar being the ringmaster.

    Nope. It's usually the other way around.

    Hha well, this happens to me with Yugioh cards once in a while (especially since I REALLY need to organize my shit), but never with toys of any kind. If there's something I have or don't have, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt.
