    I just caught a missile right in my eye. The culprit: Crossovers Iron Man. Luckily the spring was fairly weak. Anyone else have transformers that have hit you smack dab in the eye with their missiles?

    I've never had it happen. I hate the thought of things in my eyes, and them being exposed, but I don't worry about it, because I wear glasses, and I really like the little plastics sheilds protecting my eyes. It's a very nice extra benefit.

    Very sorry about the Missile accident though.

    Sorry to hear about the accident, man.

    I never, ever load a missile until the launcher clicks, unless I intend to fire it at something. My TFs are always displayed either with no missiles (the projectiles are stored in ziplock bags elsewhere), or with the missiles sitting loosely in their launchers. Partly for safety reasons, and partly to prevent the launcher spring from becoming weak. And whenever I load missiles, I do so with the launcher pointing away from me. Hasn't let me down thus far.

    That's a painful way of finding out if your TFs toys consider you either a deception or an autobot, depending which TF shot you.

    But for those of you who were shot by Starscream, I guess you won't know since he's his own man! LOL!

    You think that's bad? When I first fiddled around with my Henkei Starscream, he shot a missile right into my nuts. (Very characteristic, though.) I'm never gonna have kids. :(

    Unicron. the big one. i lost his minicon, so i was messing with the launching system. right eye, between the eyes, and in my left eye. i laughed till i nearly choked. (though the left eye one is debatable, it was more the eyebrow. but i still laughed like hell)

    Clearly, it is Hasbro's fault and litigation must immediately be started against them. Take them for all they're worth! Personal responsibility be damned!

    Some might say I deserve this for buying a KO, but....

    I had just opened my KO Powermaster Optimus Prime, and my glasses were off because I was suffering from a migraine. I put HiQ in the grill, brought it close to my face to inspect it, and POW!!! right in the right eye. It would have hurt a little bit normally, but with the migraine it was like being tapped on the head with the wrong end of a claw hammer.

    I stand proud by the fact that I have never been shot at by my Transformers. They may accidentally shoot elsewhere, but not at me!

    And then my pride goes down the toilet when I remember that I got flicked in the eye by a strand of spaghetti last night.
