    Gargh, you just made me remember when we had a garage sale when I was 12 and I sold almost my whole collection off for a few bux (except, completely by chance, my very first transformer g1 hound). And then, I let my brother take everything that was left when he started collecting (which was about 5 years before I did), so essentially I gave away my entire original g1 collection. Sob.

    I got back into collecting during RID, but ended up giving most of them away after the series ended, including the Prime & Magnus....

    Big mistake. I regret it every time I see an RID Prime...

    Never regret giving any of them away since they are going to my friend's kids and they are always appreciative of them and thank me. Need to get em hooked early, and also let em know that Uncle Barrel is the greatest, so when they start having bigger birthday parties, they can hook their uncle up with some single moms. The wheels have been set in motion.

    I didn't give them away, but I do regret selling my G1 Blaster,Megatron, and G1 Starscream. Although, I did need the money.

    I had a bunch a beast wars stuff that I kinda regret giving to Salvation Army. Like original Rattrap, Cheetor, and Scorponok.

    While on the subject of regret I accidentally put my Green Ranger Dagger ( The original one, that played music ) in one of those bags. I was gonna sell that thing, since it's still worth a decent amount. Oh well, hopefully someone else is enjoying it.

    really regret selling my Movie Evac. I had decided that I wanted only on-screen decos, but I have switched to a more completionist style of collecting for the movie lines.

    i swapped my powermaster prime cab with my buddy scott for a spiderman figurine he got from a cereal box, so i ended up with a lone trailer and a three inch plastic spiderman that i chewed up in about a day. but we are talking around '95 or '96 here, so i woulda been about five years old. a couple years later i got it back from him in exchange for my beast wars insecticon, but by the time this happened it had been sitting in his garden for months and was pretty effed. we didn't speak all that much after that >=[
