    Hey guys, I just saw a thread stating your worst transformer buys, this one is for what great Tfs or great deals on tfs you wish you bought now but passed up then

    I was working in Shanghai in 2008 and Henkeis were generally sold for 150 RMB for a deluxe, 200 a voyager, which really isn't much money! Got some - Prime, Bumblebee, Mirage, Starscream - not others. Regret not picking up all the other Henkeis at very reasonable prices. But as regrets go, how bad is that really? I certainly don't hate myself for it.

    Masterpiece Thundercracker.

    I missed what turned out to be the VERY small window of time it was available.

    I should have left the Takara Tomy Masterpiece Grimlock in the package and bought the Hasbro TRU one to open and play with.

    HFTD Banzaitron. It's the only figure in the last couple years I've been somewhat interested in and didn't get. Not terribly broken up over it though.

    A lot of Universe 2.0 figures and Fansproject figures.

    I've mostly bought all the ones I've missed though, but not without a giant hole in the wallet.

    Classics Cliffjumper :( 

    To be honest though, this was more my ex's fault. I never saw him at retail, but SHE did. She decided to pick up G2 Megatron single pack instead because she figured I'd like a tank more.
    Bless her for trying, and I was very greatful for the thought. But not now he comes out every bloody year or so, while poor old cliff goes for £££'s on ebay.

    For me it was Botcon Laserbeak & Buzzsaw for $70, no instructions or tech.

    What's considered a very small window?

    It's kind of funny how the classics stuff that shelfwarms and ends up going on clearance ends up being the most expensive in the long run. I remember Cliffjumper somewhat shelfwarming too.
