    A bunch of my Classics guys toppled over. Unicron, Primus, and Supreme Starscream all took a header of a 6 foot shelf, but nobody is broken at all.

    I hope nobody lost anything in the quake.

    Yeah that too. It was pretty mild, and I guess I was assuming nobody got hurt. My bad.

    No earthquake all the way here. But I'm worried that a package I ordered from Toronto got damaged. It'll probably be fine though

    Where was there an earthquake? Didn't feel anything out here in Cali...

    But I've had some casualties from past earthquakes. Nothing too major. My biggest loss was a G1 Prime.

    My wife said some of my bots were knocked over. I was at work (on the 33rd floor of a NYC building). We felt the shaking (which is kinda scary all the way up there) and quickly exited. Once things calmed down, it was back to work as usual. I hope everyone else is OK.

    Nothing of mine fell (utterly SHOCKED), but my girlfriends Resident Evil figures were jostled. I think she said her Mr. X and RE5 Sheva tipped over.

    I had Generations Red Alert and Classics Sunstreaker fall along with RTS Tracks and Generations Wheeljack fall. Lucky for me no damage. Its strange that those sharing molds with another all fell. lol

    Well I live about 40-45 minutes from where the earthquake took place, when I got home here's what I found.... Luckily I have carpet in my room.

    Found Hardhead with upgrade kit on the floor, pieces everywhere, not broken. My G1 Devastator with Crazy Devy parts all over the place, I thought it was broken at first but the leg had popped off the ball joint...whew!! Pricey piece! My FP Warcry was on the floor and all the little minicons with human figures were all knocked the "F" out...

    I had Waspinator standing on top of Optimal Optimus. Came him to found him standing on his head between Primal's left leg and Rhinox. Guess it is kind of fitting that only Waspinator would be the one to stumble in a quake.

    During the last earthquake both my MP Skywarps kicked MP Thundercracker off the shelf.


    He was pissed and Starscream laughed

    I missed it and didn't even realize it happened until told about it. I was driving... driving a box truck at that, at the time. My wife however said the place "swayed" back and forth in a "did some acid just leak outta my spine?" kinda way* for a moment. Some picture frames fell and 3 bots (Universe Ratchet, RTS Wreck-Gar and G2 Prime) did so as well. No damage to anything fortunately.

    * OK, those weren't her exact words... :lol

    Philadelphia, Pa area. I was at work in a training class and our computer tables started moving side to side. Unusual for this area. No issues at home as far as I can tell.
