    Oh where to start,how bout these reasons:

    1.If a figure is too expensive.
    2.The design is just crap.
    3.It doesn't capture the essence of the original.
    4.And probably the most important is if Reviewers like Peaugh and Optibotimus don't give it good reviews then I don't waste my time (but since I don't have much money I couldn't afford much anyway).
    5.Sometimes paint apps can make me decide whether to get the figure or not.


    So in closing I will finish off that there are many reasons besides these I wouldn't buy a certain figure,hope that helps.

    It's not G1 or Masterpiece. Reasons why I have to pass on some really nice TF's.

    I don't think my reasons for not getting a figure have ever been lame. Not fitting in the parameters of my collection is the main one. I like having a focused display.

    Holding off on it for too long only for it to hit aftermarket prices that are way too high for what I think the figure is actually worth.

    This. But also with "I'll wait for the price to go down."

    Arms Micron goddamn Breakdown. "Man that is perfect, but I'm only casually collecting right now, probably shouldn't spend that much on a toy" Oh what a fool I was. Not only is he now a pain in the ass to find but when you do it is for legitimately stupid money.
    After having got my hands on an A.M. Swerve, I can safely say £40 for a Breakdown would have been well worth every penny.

    Yeah, this. Leads to a lot of :banghead:  when the aftermarket has their way with me. Similar: "I'll wait for a sale".

    Also
    -I don't collect that size class ["YET! Buy it now you fool!!" - Future Me]
    -Pfft! I'm not paying an extra $5 for a different colour [re: the FP "Snowman" Superion upgrade, luckily I added that one to my cart completely on impulse. 0 regrets.]
    -He ain't official (Masterpiece), pass. [FT Quakewave: lucked out again as I listened to the praises others were heaping on this guy and caught the third production run. If not my absolute fav TF, then definitely top 5 status among my entire collection]
    -Movie toys? Blech, f*** Michael Bay! [one day I'll get my hands on a ROTF Leader Prime]

    "Eh, I imagine this won't be too hard to find in the coming months." Accidentally passes on the only retail priced Special Ops Jazz and Turbo Tracks he'd ever find.
