Weapon: Blunt Force Battle Clubs
Oh I know GDOs are still kicking around, but in the last 2 months, I've managed to find EVERY other toy in the wild including mp-10 during a 20% off weekend and over 10 vehicons before the Aldi sale...except Wheelie :(

Went to a med. sized toy show and one guy had all 4 GDO deluxes for 16$ each. Bought the Swerve and the Springer, passed on the CJ due to having the FE and FE terrorcon already, and passed on Wheelie for whatever hairbrained reason. Came back to the table less than 10 mins later and it was gone. Oddly enough, GDO Hot Spot for 20$ sat there all day. Twilight zone.
Grimlock know how to bash brains. Maybe bash yours.

I wish I had FE Ciffjumper or FE Bumblebee. Trying to complete the Prime line for my daughters Xmas.

I would have traded/ grabbed a GDO Wheelie for you if you wanted but take a look here http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=16803576 ;)
Wanted: Jack, Miko and Raf from FE Pack, AM Breakdown, any good Blackarachnia, any affordable MPs especially Grimlock (I can dream)
Selling/ Trading: My Gears of War collection, including NECA figures, lancer replica, signed comics, etc.

Hmmmm, let me see, what I regret buying:

MP Rodimus Prime's probably the closest to regretting buying a figure. i had a lot of problems with mine straight out of the box.

What I wish I had bought:
I was in Japan, and skipped on a MIB Doubledealer going dirt cheap. Same for Anime color eHobby Astrotrain, and probably Nucleon Quest Optimus.

Ah yes! MP Rodimus! I kept him back in his box and placed him behind all my figs I forgot about him. The arm broke off cos I looked at it funny. :sad:

Also, When I was in Japan back in 2010 I saw a G1 Scorponok with box, going for around US$45. I doubt the accessories were complete, but it was in pretty good shape and I really regret passing it. :-(
