my biggest would probably be selling all my favorite ARAH gi joes ( about 30, (1984-87) in a rummage sale for $5 15 years ago because my ..well not step sister anymore said i needed to stop playing with toys. Boy do i regret that day even after the nice man who bought them asked me if i was sure I wanted to sell them.
But I passed on a Flint one time.
But I bought the only yellow Stalker I saw because I heard he was a variant from here. I like to think i would have bough thim anyways but who knows...

opening my twin sister's Christmas present just 4 months ago... it was two 25th anniversary box sets... that cost her about $50... and has cost me way over $1,000 in hundreds of figures, way too many comic packs, 4 cases of vehicles sets, 12 TRU exclusive sets, every legions set i saw on clearance at target... and to be continued for who knows how long!!!!
selling all my gi joes i collected from 1984-1987 including my terrordrome and tons of vehicles and playsets at a freakin swapmeet when i should have kept them all!!!!!!!

In Xmas of 93, I saw several Battle Corps X-16 Ghoststrikers, and neglected to pick up any. I passed it up in favor of the horrible Star Brigade armored joes and X-Men figures. That had to be one of the stupidest mistakes I have ever made regarding collecting G.I. Joes.
Another thing was passing up the VVV robot suits.

I think I have all of you beat.
Last year, went to Comic Con. They sold out of both SDCC Destros. Done there, drove back up north to Frank & Sons (huge collector warehouse type shop) and found a vendor who had both Silver and Gold Destro.
I had them IN MY HAND. Ironically Silver was more, $45, Gold was $40 (!) Didnt have enough money, decided to get Silver, just cuz I thought he was cooler looking.
I guess I couldve afforded it but after I spent so much at SDCC, I didnt want to keep wasting money & I was pissed the vendor was "scalping."
1 year later still kicking my butt for not picking up BOTH. I've gotten good deals there before but this one still haunts me.
Cant. let. it. go. LOL

I had a Piper in Atlanta, didn't think it was a big deal, had Roddy sign him for my girlfriends little brother. Oh, and I made the mistake of going to desert storm and my Dad gave away half my original collection (which was everything 82-87 except the Flagg, never had that) What are ya gonna do? but I can't tell you how cool it is to have the 25th line and sites like this now, and even overpriced ebay where you can get practically anything...
Anybody have a:
U.K. Action Force Figs/Vehicles,
A.P.C. Turret and top unbroken
PM me for trade or to sell!
