I suppose if I was going to make a depressing thread about regret, this positive one should accompany it. I'd love to hear about your most triumphant purchase. Triumphant is obviously left vague, so it could be the case that it was an extremely rare item, tremendously great value, most memorable set, etc.
For me, it would be a collection I bought on eBay of Classic Town. It's not often that one sees a substantial vintage collection go up for auction because, for anyone that cared enough to collect and maintain sets from so long ago, the sentimental value easily outweighs the monetary value. The sets in this collection were from 1979 to 1989, were all originally purchased by the owner, and in excellent condition. Moreover, he had two of every set! It wasn't a cheap auction win by any means... I think I paid $1500 for it, but I could have easily kept one copy for myself and sold the duplicates and actually stand to make a profit. There's nothing better than "free" Lego. Of course, I haven't yet let go of a single one ;)
