    I'm sure all of us, at one time of another, either sold or traded a TF that later on, we wished we had kept. For me, I regret selling my MISB Botcon Arcee, and a original complete G1 Galvatron i had had since I was a kid. What are your regrets?

    I sold a G1 Shrapnel before and I immediately regretted. I didn't realize how awesome it was until after I got rid of it...

    TCC Punch/Counterpunch: I "traded" him to a former member who ended up ripping me off as well as about 30 different people all at once.

    Beast Wars Optimal Optimus: I paid nothing for him and he was missing his 'bot mode head and all of his weapons so I didn't feel like I was losing anything, but I've since been catching up on Beast Wars figs and wouldn't mind having him back.

    I thought there have already been a number of threads on this subject recently. Perhaps I'm just seeing things.

    Anyway, my most current regret is trading my 2.0 Starscream for a blue Music Label Soundwave back in 2010. It wasn't a bad deal for me, but with 2.0 Starscream's value skyrocketing in the subsequent months since that deal, it's made it difficult for me to find a replacement.

    I gave away G1 Doublecross to a friend who likes dragons. Wish I hadn't.

    As soon as I sold my extra Classics sealed on the card Bumblebee, my opened one got a crack in the windshield. :redface2:  I was able to stop it with some super glue, but it was still a little frustrating.

    I gave Classics Prime and Megs to a mate about a year ago. Could've done quite well out of those on here or the 'bay. And his wife won't let him display them either. The bitch.
    I don't do selfless acts well..

    TFTM Incinerator.

    I didn't realize how much I loved that damn thing until after I sold him.

    Also ROTF Arcee/Chromia, but mostly because I need to cannibalize one for a custom :D

    Selling him off was the stupidist move I ever made when it comes to selling my stuff. Sadly I'll never own him again as the secondary market prices have hit the ludicrus meter.

    I never really like the idea of traded or selling my stuff in fear that I might want/like them later.

    Probably wouldn't regret selling some random 07 movie toys though.

    All of my Alternators, save Alt. Silverstreak, Alt Prowl (who probably would have gone if he didn't have a broken piece) and BT Yellow Tracks. Man I miss those guys.
