    So I rearranged my Classics shelves to make room for Henkei Strafe, the new Generations figs and DOTM Vortex. Picked up Skywarp to take to my wife and tell her to "Touch my Seeker" as I do every time I rearrange, and notice that one of his missiles is missing. I have no idea where it decided to pop out at. I get to scour an entire garage and a dining room.

    Just thought I'd share.

    This is what the universe does to you if you make smutty remarks regarding your toys to your wife. It is a lesson we all must learn.

    You know what's really bad? When you lose Tomohawk's missile somewhere in you house, and your carpet is almost the exact color of the missile.

    :lol

    You shot your missile before your wife even touched your seeker? That's kinda embarrassing.

    wow ilol'd.

    I did this a couple years back when they were clearancing the universe 2.0 figures. Got home and opened up treadbolt, upon transforming him one of his brown clear missiles goes flying, and I could never find it.

    Just this year we were moving couches and cleaning, and out of nowhere I see a little brown clear missile laying next to our balcony door. Hard to believe since I had chalked it up as a loss, but it was a pretty cool find to have him complete again :D

    You should create ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world after this cruelty.

    Nah, but I will be on my hands and knees crawling across the concrete til I find it. Either that, or send my bulldog in since he has a knack for finding irreplaceable items and eating them

    Check your shoes. I've had a missile shoot in a shoe I was wearing once. It frustrated me because I couldn't find it and I didn't want to check what was bugging my foot until I finished what I was doing.

    It was like a Catch-22 perpetuated by my stubborness.

    I feel your pain. For the longest time, my Cybertron Optimus' pistol was missing, and his one cannon looked like scrap without it. Dang thing finally turned up while I was cleaning the basement. The missile was still in it, to my surprise.

    Anyway, best of luck finding that darn little thing.

    I had a missle fire once without reason. I was getting ready to go out and a heard a clic and spring sound. I looked at my figures and noticed my voyager movie 1 startscream had fired one of his missles. I spent about 20 minutes looking before I found it. Some how it had managed to fire, zip between a few figures before going over the edge of the counter and falling into the trash. But that isn't the end, it managed to fall through the small opening of a soda bottle, which is why it took so long to find.

    Now, I dare the worlds best sharp shooters to pull that shot off. NOPE! Only Starscream can do that suckers, sit back down and holster your guns, you're all amateurs in comparison. :p

    Well, hope you find it. :lol 

    I really hate it when a missile accidentally launches and ends up behind a heavy piece of furniture or in the radiator.

    That's nothing. I lost the engine of my TCC Punch/Counterpunch and the missile of my Botcon Alpha Trion this same way.
