    Yeah, if I knew then what I know now, I would have ALOT more stuff. But here's the thing, nothing would be worth anything because everyone would have it and kept it sealed, boxed, etc., which is what happened to collectables from the last 30 years. But if you are not collecting for investment, like me, then yeah, there is a lot I wish I did get back then, just because some of the stuff is hard to find and I actually had access to it back in the day. One thing that kinda haunts me to this day is going to TRU back in the 80's, and deciding if I should buy the Cobra Hydrofoil of G1 Megatron. I had both in my hands, but only could get one. I chose the hydrofoil, just because I was more of a Joe fan then a Transformers fan. I kinda wish I chose megatron because you will never see a new megatron in gun form because of the way the world is now. I don't regret the hydrofoil, its a great toy, but just knowing I could've had a G1 Megatron still kinda haunts me.

    Yeah, there are a few things from way back when I wish I still had, just because they were so cool and I had so much fun with all of it.

    If I knew then what I know now, I would have had a very unhappy childhood - I would have been afraid to touch my toys for fear of "ruining" them.
