    Cliffjumper- Too expensive for simple redeco of a mold I'm ho hum about, WFC is a better substitute for now and I have a feeling they'll revisit Cliffjumper with different newer mold in the future.
    Megatron- I'm no fan of the Nerf gun or the non-vehicular versions.
    Optimus- Just waiting for the next version of him, I believe the new Legends figure is a sneak preview.
    The Seekers- I was too late to the game to get the most important of them, and I find I like the FoC rendition more my taste.

    I hit the classics uni2.0 hard as they were coming out. I've thinned out most of both lines through the yrs. The only one I regret selling off is Onslaught. The Sunstreaker, seeker and Prowl molds are my favorites, so they aren't going anywhere. There are alot of gems in the chug lines.
    Earlier in the thread, someone mentioned Warpath. He's just one example of a home-run homage to an older figure. Inferno is another example of pure win.

    I've already sold of minicons, non-Minibot or Data disk legends, Hotshot, Dinobot & Cheetor and am currently getting rid of the Unicron Trilogy re-decoes. Originally, I was trying to be a CHUG completionist but now if it doesn't fit into my G1/Classic-verse collection its out or on its way out.

    Right off the bat cheetor, dinobot and hot shot. Hated all three especially that cheetor.

    Most seekers since I was never a fan of them to begin with. All the ultras, only one I'd really consider getting would be the Darkwind repaint of silverbolt. I do from time to time get interested in the figures, but that just dwindles fast.

    Others:
    Smokescreen- Already have Prowl and Bluestreak, just had no interest in getting a third copy of the mold
    Megatron- Just never interested me in the way Prime did.
    Galvatron- Just too many flaws with him as a deluxe class.
    Straxus- Just not a figure I have any sort of desire for.
    Rumble/Frenzy- The arms just annoyed me to no end killing any sort of interest.
    Grapple
    Seaspray- It was an odd update, that while looking good and being a decent figure, just never held any of my interest. Much rather have the redeco.
    Grimlock- I'm extremely biased now because of MP Grimmy, but it just looks wrong. Works a heck of a lot better as Overkill.
    Mirage- just never wanted him oddly enough even though I bought Drag Strip.
    Wheeljack- He's a good update but I find myself having no interest in getting him.
    Kup- Helps that I didn't care for the figure to begin with.

    Everything in the FOC line other then Shockwave (who I have), Soundblaster(who I still want), and Ultra Magnus.

    A lot. I don't need every toy and character. Just the ones I love the most.

    But there are few exceptions like Tracks, who I really wanted to have, until I saw his toy. His toy does not capture Tracks good enough for me. As Wheeljack it looks good, but I'm not interested in Wheeljack.

    Dinobot & Hot shot. Think I did get a Cheetor from BBTS when it was clearanced for $2 or $3, just because I really like my Titanium Cheetor.

    Two of the big three, Starscream and probably more importantly Skywarp. I never had luck finding the latter at a time I could jump on it or simply without paying through the nose.

    I was a Classics completist till last year (Hasbro, Takara, everything), but gave it up with the Takara UN series; I skipped Primal and Beast Megatron (already had the 10th Anniversary versions), Unicron (already had the Cybertron version), and all the Power Core combiner repaints (just not worth paying import prices for those molds).

    Once the completist bug was gone, I decided to skip the Takara FOC line as well. I'm just not a big fan of the FOC aesthetic or the molds, and having the Hasbro versions of those was good enough (even though some of them like Sideswipe and Blaster undeniably look better in the Takara line).

    I think I also finally decided I don't need Dragoyell ($1000 for a mediocre minicon is hard to justify) or the unreleased Wonderfest Black Convoy (the released Decepticon-branded one mostly scratched that itch).

    Does Cheetor count? That toy doesn't look like something I'd buy due to the amount of Kibble

    Galvatron - he was awful
    Cheetor - he was also awful
    Grimlock - I prefer the FOC version

    That would count!

    I wouldn't buy because I just don't collect beasts.

    Classics Voyager Megatron: Don't care for the gun alt mode at all. If he was a tank then I'd consider.

    Classics Deluxe Ironhide and Ratchet: Don't like how they have many panel lines in alt mode and the weird looking robot modes don't help either.

    WFC Cliffjumper: I like Cliffjumper as his own character.

    FOC Sideswipe: Already content with my FOC Jazz

    GDO Cliffjumper: Already got my FE Cliffjumper

    Trailbreaker never understood why people wanted him so much although I like Hoist's design and character.

    Truth.

    For me I've got no interest in the Ratchet/Ironhide molds or the Prowl/Smokescreen/Bluestreak molds. Or the seekers. I have sideswipe and don't feel the need to double dip back into that mold. I've got zero interest in any FoC molds. Ditto the Universe Ultra Class figures.

    Past that, for the right price I'll probably try it.
