    Let's talk about broken toys.

    Is there any instance in your life where you somehow broke a particularily valued toy? It can be something from your childhood or it can be something you got as a collector and were particularily fond of - or it can be just something that was just really bloody expensive.

    EDIT: Crap, this was meant to go in the toyark. A little help here?

    I broke my ROTF Rampage while trying to mod the legs. I got a second one and lost it while I was on vacation in Texas. I'm on my third Rampage and I'm never letting go of that thing.

    EDIT: Recently, I just broke one of Leader Starscream's toes.

    While I was dating this one chick, who had children, one of her boys broke one of the shuttle doors on my vintage G1 sky lynx :/. I felt bad after it happened, but I got pretty pissed at him.

    Got home one day from school and My sisters dog had gotten into my room, knocked TM2 Dinobot off his shelf and chewed him up,

    ......Of course only THEN did I learn when I went to replace him that My white one was in fact NOT the common one on shelves. great thing about being an adult...I can now rectify those issues.

    You can ask for your thread to be moved to the Toyark here.

    And since I suppose this was to be non TF related, one of the tusks on my Tracker Predator got broke after being out of the package for all of 5 minutes. I love my son.:lol  Clean break and a very easy fix so, all is well. Kids are gonna break shit, such as life I suppose.

    Finding broken electronics in a toy for no fathomable reason is pretty bad too.

    The "backpack" on my beloved Armada Sonar, the hilt of the Star Saber, once broke when trying to transform him into Sword mode, after years of repeated transformations. He was able to be fixed, but he will never see robot mode again, he's just too old and I don't trust the clear plastic.

    Still. He shouldn't have been trying to do it through a giant beanbag.

    This goes back a few years. I bought a G1 Ransack. I gave it a thorough examination, making sure that every was right, thinking about tightening with clear nail polish that which might be tightened. I finish up. Half an hour goes by. I pick him up and something breaks. I can't remember exactly what it was. It wasn't broken previously, no stress marks or anything like that, and I was able to fix it. But I'd had it for only for maybe an hour, probably less.

    Oh, why universe hate Insecticons?

    Not valuable, but one of my favourites. ROTF Dune Runner. I was just showing him to a friend when suddenly the leg falls off. I attach it, but it falls of again. The balljoint breaks and I couldn't reattach it again. :(

    I think I'm the only collector I know that has never broken a Transformer.

    A few years ago.

    Got TFA Deluxe Prowl on eBay WAYYYYY before he was released.

    I was transforming him and his arm snapped off, but I was used to the ball joint coming loose...

    It wasn't the ball joint.

    Since I was pretty young, I cried a little that night.

    ....Not even gonna say a word.




    So to the OP, is this thread TF related or just other action figures?

    On the TF side, TM Megatron snapped (crumbled really) at the waist on the last step of the transformation. So careful the whole time, turn the waist around, yes, almost there....*dust particles*

    I just had to see the robot mode. He sat on my shelf in beast mode for over a year, taunting me, egging me on. Bastard.

    My dog chewed up the package on a Wizard World exclusive figure I got a while back. The only time he ever did it he went after a comi-con exclusive :lol

    The right foot. I mistransformed it and couldn't get it out of the hole inside the legs so I tried popping it off the balljoint and the whole foot+the stem the balljoint was on ripped off. Attempting to superglue it back made things worse; all it did was mush up the plastic.

    I already bought a new one though. At least having multiple of the same insecticon is canon, lol.
