    G1 Nightbeat’s head...lol. Actually, I think it’s still around somewhere.

    Honestly, I kind of wish I had kept my G1 combiners I sold years ago (Superion and Menasor) and maybe TFC G1 Megs, a few more Alternators, Primus and Cybertron OP. None of these are from my childhood, though. I still have every childhood TF I ever owned. There are some non-TF childhood toys I wish I still had, though.

    Sheesh... all of em. Mostly for the sentimental value: they were all G1 from when I was a kid.

    Figures that I lost? 2007 Legends blackout. Pretty sure that my friend stole it from me, as he asked to play with it, then went straight to the school bathroom. When he came out, he claimed that he "lost" it. Yeah... right...

    I got legends grindor to replace him, but it just isn't the same man! :(  Had to wait 10 years to get a proper replacement (it was worth it though!!)

    I had the full set of Shogun warriors, the jumbo machinders. Including Godzilla. Wish I still had those.

    As for transformers, wish I still had my G1 constructicons. Took me a long time to get all them buying individually.

    Most of my G1 stuff was broken or missing pieces and were thrown out over the years. I have a couple left. I started purchasing parts and pieces and putting together some G1 stuff. Mainly stuff I miss from when I was a kid. I have 6 fully restored and 100% complete figures plus 3 boxed reissues.

    I really miss my original Trypticon and Double Dealer the most.

    Back in the day I had Prowl and he pretty much got broken twice. My older sister also had Mirage but she either lost Mirage when we moved or it got broken too

    I bought just about everything we owned as kids.
    I now wish I had gone for all or nothing and collected it all with box and inlay.

    I've reacquired most of the significant toys that I remember having as a kid: Seaspray, Ultra Magnus and Powermaster Optimus Prime specifically. One that I havent got is Gobot Deep Dive.

    All of them.
    Energon Skyblast and Cruellock, Armada Perceptor, Armada Sonar (the Star Sabers hilt), and Beast Machines Ultra class Jetstorm. All my other ones were McDs toys, which I can take or leave.

    I've managed to re-acquire all my old TFs and then some. I only wish I had kept the originals and saved myself some trouble and money later in life.

    What I wish I still owned was the rest of my Gobots and the miscellaneous other transforming robots from the 80s I had to supplement my TF collection.

    My first TF was G1 Trailbreaker and I love him to death. But somewhere I lost the little flip-out lid that goes on his roof. Every time I see that hole on top I wonder where the heck I left that little square of black plastic.

    My G1 Superion and Strafe.

    I still haven't gotten around to replacing them, (something always comes up) but those are figures I played with... All. Day. Long.
