My story, is yet another Target one (yeah same Target from my last week's discussion). We all know how bad Jakks is with distributing, so lately I've been trying to grab what I can! With the first batch of Black and White plush, I ended up buying my Snivy, Tepig, and Sandile in Canada since they had alot, although twice the price. It wasn't until later that I found them in abundance (and not just Munnas and Pidoves...) in every store I went to! Still, it wasn't too bad a regret. I was glad I got them. However in my little story today, I am a little sad of what happened^^
So, a few weeks ago I decided to pick up the 3 pack of Jakks that had Minccino, Axew, and Snivy (although Snivy is a double for me). I figured I might as well for $10, especially since I haven't seen them available as the non-shooter thingies yet. Then last week I picked up a Pansage single since I finally came across them, and this costed $4 being a sale. And I was happy with that. Now today I go in to see if any plush has come in, to find another one of those "Target exclusive" 5-packs.... This one came with Minccino, Axew, Pansage, Pikachu (would be a double for me) and... Woobat who I haven't seen at the store yet! ....this was on sale for $11 :( This made me sad, especially because I sort of want Woobat too and well, it would've been a much better deal^^
That's the thing with me: if I decide to buy something, for any of my collections, I find something like THIS or some crazy sale/price drop soon after. If I DON'T decide to buy it, it ends up being the ONE thing I'll never find again or won't find till years later :/ That's why I've become more of an impulsive buyer over the years, but it's hard on a tiny budget^^ So, I try and pick and chose what I would want the most/regret not buying...
Alright, I'm sure you have some stories of regret! My only note on this is if it's a purchause from the community (like an "I didn't like it..." story or something) try and keep it confidental on who it was from/what it was. Just to be courteous^^
