Toys I’m sad that never came out were the Trendmasters toys based on Godzilla: the Series, which itself was based on that infamously terrible 1998 attempt at making a Westernized Godzilla movie. The cartoon was good from what I recall, at least to my 6 year-old self, so it sucks that these were never released.
NECA Striker Eureka and Leatherback from series 2 of their Pacific Rim line. Not perfect but pretty great figures. Only bad things would be the occasional sloppy paint job and wonky posable joints, but NECA have gotten a lot better within the past few years.
Masterpiece Grimlock is probably the best Transformer ever to be released in my opinion. Grimlock is also my favorite Transformer so I felt more than obligated to get him. I got him at Toys R Us 3 years ago with some graduation money and he was worth every cent (and more).
Unfortunately his left hand has problems holding a weapon because I think his gun’s small tab (not the handle) that sticks in his hand broke off in the hole but regardless, he’s amazing.
