I've been dwelling on stuff like this lately - over Labor Day weekend I dug up some of my last boxes from action figure collection (had them since they were new in the 90's) and sold 54 Star Wars POTF toys & 33 Spawn toys all MOC My only things that I wanted strongly & never wound up getting were: - Neo Geo: In the day's of Sega Saturn & Dreamcast, I lived down the road from the arcade. They had 2 Neo Geo cabinets, and the gas station at the end of my street also had one as well. If I wasn't playing Final Fantasy Tactics or Phantasy Star Online, I was fighting on Capcom or SNK titles. That's when I decided that I needed a Neo Geo cabinet - the AVS or CD home console just wouldn't do. Thank goodness I never got one before, because I had a room mate steal pretty much all of my belongings during a move & I know this would have disappeared. - My Pet Monster: The commercials for these guys haunted me. The products/packaging on the shelves when toy shopping mocked me. I don't know how I never got this, I got (what felt like) a ton of action figures per year, why couldn't I get a plush monster in shackles? - Scott Bernard Armored Cyclone: I was introduced to this toy, and the TV show Robotech, via Sci-Fi Expos, toy collector trade-shows, and toy/figure magainze & Animerica. This guy was no Valkyrie, and I had no idea who he was or why his bike transformed into a suit - but I knew I wanted him. Since I was about a decade or so late to the game, neither me nor my mother could ever foot his bill. Scott Bernard was a big heartbreaker to see at EVERY show/convention. And finally... - Pepsi R2D2 cooler: needs no explanation, I just wanted this in my room so bad, but everyone always had crazy prices on him at shows so he never got adopted. FWIW, I would still buy one in a heartbeat for a couple hundred bucks if found.
