    What figure have you regret purchasing after buying them, this could be an impulse buy or something else.
    For me it was foc soundwave, after I got him he just felt so bland and boring

    What immediately comes to mind for me is LG God Bomber. Not even the combined mode to me is worth the price I paid for him.

    POTP Abominus. I never owned a full G1 combiner so I was compelled to get him but he’s not that great and on mine the limbs flop about. I also mildly regret POTP Predaking. Not because he’s not great (he is); I just don’t have anywhere to put him and hence they’re all sitting there disassembled. I won’t be buying many combiners in the future.

    CW Legends class Groove for me, though at least he was cheap.

    Most recent example? SS Cogman. There's not a thing wrong with the figure. He's actually quite nice. Movie toys just always leave me cold. Knowing this, I am still hunting the Optimus. Because I'm broken.

    POTP Elita-1. I'm just not pleased with the mold. I didn't like it as Starscream and decided to wait for Elita-1 and after getting her, yea, still not a fan. I still have her since I don't have any other version of Elita-1 but as soon as a better version comes along, I imagine I will be replacing her.

    Hasbro's Titans Return Magnus Prime (Ginrai). I will never regret getting the actual set he came in because I am 100% pleased with the TR Metalhawk figure but Ginrai was the biggest reason I got that set and I have to admit, I was kind of meh on him after messing with him a bit. I didn't really have any plans on getting Godbomber but I'm glad I didn't because turns out my Hasbro Magnus Prime was one of several reported that had some connector parts missing on the bottom of his feet to connect the Godbomber pieces.

    Does this include duplicates? I regret picking up another UW Devastator because it was reissued recently through Amazon JP. I had one already and didn't need another.

    MP-9B: I fixed the knees with the chrome 3rd party ones but the chrome on the figure itself was horrible so I painted it. A year or two ago I discovered one of the hinges on his back broke.

    POTP Rodimus Prime: My Unicronus I paid $11 for is fine. I found a Rodimus for $15 so I bought it for Hot Rod. I still feel cheated on this one. Almost every joint is super loose, ball joints especially. The back end of the trailer was warped. The arm panels fall off at the slightest touch. Just horrible all around.

    Seige Soundwave: The figure itself seems OK but I really can't stand the battle damage paint. I only buy figures that I think I can remove it from, if it isn't bad, or if I don't have a version of that character (the upcoming Apeface is a must). I decided to give it a go. The paint came off on the "tape deck" door ok. The problem was the silver battle damage. I wish all normal paint apps were as tough. Normal paint will remove with a touch of 91% alcohol, not this silver battle damage. I got a lot off but at this point the rest isn't budging, even after being submerged forover 24 hours. I have some 99% coming and heard it works well so maybe I will feel better about it soon.

    Oh, deluxe Darkmount (Straxus). He's too small to intimidate anyone.
