    ^I got MP Skywarp on clearance for $10.

    To answer the thread, I'd say Delicate Warrior. I've wanted since it was announced and still haven't bothered to get one. I can still get one, just would've liked to have gotten one sooner.

    - 24+ years ago I had my allowance money saved up from a few months and went to the store to pick out a new toy. I passed on G1 Scorponok and got a Shogun Warrior.

    - Cybertron Primus was on clearance at Wal Mart some time back for around $20. I didn't want it at the time, and now can't find one for a decent price at all.

    - Wal Mart Skywarp. I passed on it so often that I lost the chance of finding one.

    White Lio Junior. I saw both black and white ones for sale, grabbed the black version (naturally), to find out later on white ones are much harder to come by. I've even sold the black Lio Junior now :(

    Animated Roadbuster Ultra Magnus. The colors weren't all that great and the few I saw could have had better paint apps but I've grown to like it for its odd look.

    There were two. Skyfall and Darkwind.

    Probably not hunting down Classics Ramjet back in the day (my store overordered wave 2 to the point I never saw wave 3, and had about 20 Mirages and 12 Bumblebees go to clearance when the movie stuff hit)

    I also regret passing on a LOT of Beast Machines and RiD stuff (a surprisingly large amount of which has never been reused by Hasbro)

    The only one I really wish I'd bought at the time was TFTM07 Wal-Mart-exclusive Crankcase. Had it in my hand, thought about buying it and ended up passing...but now I wouldn't mind having it to put in my Classics collection. It's not a big priority on my "wants" list, though. I tend to have more of a problem with buying stuff I shouldn't have than not buying items I should have.

    On the side of "should have bought extras to re-sell", I'd say Classics Skywarp/Magnus, RotF Superion, RotF Bruticus and Energon Ultra Magnus. I actually bought several extras of the Skywarp/Magnus and RotF Superion sets when they went on clearance, beyond the ones I got for myself; sold one of the Skywarp/Magnus sets to a board member at cost, but donated the others to Toys for Tots. In the case of the Skywarp/Magnus set, I never imagined it was going to increase in price so much, since at the time people were so butthurt about Magnus just being a repaint and people had some problem with Skywarp too (I forget what). Energon Ultra Magnus, I saw several times and just couldn't justify spending the money, even though I knew I could flip it.
