I was just curious if anyone had any collecting regrets. Possibly something they passed on only to never find it again. Or the other way around -- You bought something (or a bunch of somethings) hoping it would increase in value only to discover it was worthless.
For me it was passing on the POTJ Tie Bomber when it first came out. I found 4 in a local TRU but didn't have the $30 to pick it up. I figured that since TRU had it and it wasn't an exclusive, I'd purchase it in a month or two. Boy was I wrong.
I also passed on the Target Skiff. I found only one, but the packaging was pretty beat up. Like the clear plastic front was half ripped off. I passed hoping to find one in better condition but never did.
In the "almost" category, I almost missed the AT-ST/Speeder bike TRU exclusive. They were sitting on the shelves for a few months in plenty and then when I went to get one, they were all gone. Luckily a very nice employee called all the local TRU's and had one shipped from Oregon for me.
