After recently reorganizing my collection a week or so ago, I got to looking at some of my figures, and kind of wondering why I bought a few things. Do any of you have any purchasing regrets....whether it be that you overpaid for a certain item in retrospect, or you maybe purchased a figure because it was the ONLY new thing you have seen in months, or maybe a certain figure was an "impulse buy"? I noticed a few figures that I had purchased that ended up being either packed away, or tucked in the back of the display it seems. Here's a few that caught my eye, personally:
"Total Control" Mace Windu - Ok, it is kind of fun to play with, and honestly, I never would have gotten this figure but for the fact that I hadn't seen anything for awhile, and I had read quite a few reviews from people saying it wasn't that bad, and was pretty fun to play with. I only paid retail for it, but looking back now, and with the space issues I have, it probably wasn't necessary.
Anakin vs. Geonosian Deluxe - This was one of those periods where I hadn't seen much new for awhile, and I was still all hyped up from Episode II. I really don't know why I bought this...the Anakin is horrible, and I don't even have either of these figures displayed now.
Jedi Council Yoda - I buy every Yoda figure pretty much, since he's one of my favorites...so I guess in some ways I don't regret it...but looking at the figure now, it just doesn't seem like that great of a figure...and a rehash to boot anyways.
Tusken w/ Massiff - Ok, not a horrible figure, but it is tucked back behind the Republic Gunship right now due to lack of room. Also, another rehash...and the newer Saga version of the Tusken (removable head one), is so much better IMO.
C-3PO with Removable Panels - Again, not terrible I guess...has some fun "play value" to some extent. I am always a sucker for characters that were in the OT as well too...but this is another figure that gets "tucked to the back"
For a non-Saga example: I once paid $20 for an Episode I Obi-Wan (soft goods skirt), only to see this figure at K-B about two weeks later for $1.99. Ouch
Since this is getting long, a few others that get "tucked away":
4/23 Padme Arena
Geo Rescue Mace
Anyways, have any of you ever experienced any situations like this?
