I regret buying Transformers movie Starscream. He didn't look so good once out of the box.

I was in a collectorshop in 1995 I believe it was going through their box of loose Star Wars figures. I was kind of chummy with the guy who worked there and he'd often let me go through the new stuff as it came in. After finding all I wanted in one box, I noticed there was another box of vintage Star Wars behind him. I asked about it, and he said those just came in and he hadn't set the prices on them yet. He also said if I wanted I could go through them now and he'd just give them to me for whatever I thought was fair. Pressed for time and not really thinking it would be worth my time, I declined. As it turns out there was a Loose Yak Face and Amanaman in there. The shop guy didn't know what they were worth until he looked them up, and I could have had them for the cost of a Bespin Han Solo. I later got both of these figs, but at a much higher price. Oh well, I would have felt bad about ripping the dude off anyway.

I bought every Battlestar Galactica Titanium I ever saw, from the first wave right up 'til the series ended. It was fun collecting 'em - but looking over the massive fleet I accumulated, I likely went a little overboard, I think. :b
Sometimes I wish I'd picked up a BMF, when I last saw 'em, on sale for $75 bucks last Christmas, but then I think about how I don't really have either a good place to display it or a good place to properly store it, and how that it'll likely eventually be re-released, hopefully with a better paint job, so I'll have a second shot at it, and I don't feel so bummed.

Regret passing up: Best of 80s when it first came out. Idiot.
Regret Buying: Loading up on SDCC 09 Destros. Who knew this would be the year that Hasbro finally met the demand!!

I regret it because I picked it up on clearance for a decent price but didn't do so until months after the figures were released and now I can't find any of the others for decent prices (well not my fave, Raphael, anyways). So i've not even taken him out of the package since I would want to put him with his brothers and their display bases. WOulda been better off not even buying the one.
Regret buying the Ms. Marvel MU figure. She isn't all that great out of the package. Actually I regret buying most of the MU figures since I think I did it only because of the GI Joe drought we were in.
Still have a classic Ms. Marvel on card that I don't know what I'll ever do with.
Regret passing up:
Python Conquest. When it hit $6.24 and Target had about 4-5 of them. Was undecided on picking it up and finally when I thought I probably would get it when I was back there the next day, they were long gone. Not a big regret but unbeatable price on the jet.
I also regret passing up on the Marvel Legends Man thing figure; not because I'm a huge fan of the character but the figure looks awesome and was fairly hard to find. Now finding one for a decent price is unlikely.

Original Cobra-La three pack at Big Lots. They had a peg full of them back in the day.
Star Wars POTF Darth: short saber in long tray. Completists seem to go ape-crap over these things.

For me is the reg edition Spiral (Red Hulk wave) that I took back to Target to settle for the Variant. Weeks later they get discounted for 3 bucks a pop and I barely complete a set but that figure I never found again.
Now if you go on eBay it goes for $25-30.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...
