Buyers guilt. Not an emotion that is a stranger for me !

Usually get over it in a day or two

What was your mistake ?

Everything happens for a reason, you'll turn it positive, no sense on dwelling on mistakes they are an opportunity to learn :wink:

I bid on a lot of 6 X Nikto figures on ebay and ended up winning. :roll:

I really didn't think I would win.

Worst thing I have ever done on eBay was bid on a 12 back R2 back in 2004. Max bid was meant to be £200 which was a lot back then. My bid was right at the last minute and was actually £2000! Ended up winning it for £255 and it was more than I had ever paid for a MOC at the time.

Put this into context I won a 12 Back A C-3PO 3 years later for £100. :lol:

I am in a constant state of Buyers Guilt since I started collecting again in January I have some sort of concern or regret after every purchase (did I pay too much, I can't believe how much money I have spent). I think the important thing to ask yourself is if the mistake is real or imaginary, if you can come out of it without loosing anything then the problem is not real it is just your imagination playing tricks on you.

...,but did you win with weapons or without? ...with, well you can always claim the Yak Face link and trade on the staffs. If not with weapons then....well it's harder shall we say....loose Nikto's without weapons are as popular as the Tories in Scotland !

However, on a very similar path so don't feel too bad. Due to circumstances last month I won 3 Tri Logo Nikto MOCs. So these things happen.

Always At least be pleased it was not Logray and Teebo job lot (without head gear of course !)

Without weapons, repro doesn't have a place in my collection so it yes it would be a bit of a pain to buy staffs for them all. Thanks for the suggestions, what I think I will do is keep the best ones and any variants (if there are any, I've not checked) the others will go in to an odds and ends drawer.
