My parents were always so horrible with taking away my transformers when I was young. My very first TF was a Powermaster Optimus Prime I got at a garage sale for like 2 bucks, I still have that thankfully, but my second one I got when I was like 6 was a G2 Jazz. I loved that toy to death! Now my mom would often do this thing where when I'd be in school she'd go into my room and just start emptying it of things and then they usually ended up in a garage sale. I watched someone buy and walk off with my Jazz. x_x I think I really need to get another one someday. I bought a Jazz when the first TF Movie came out as kind of a way fill that gap in me if that makes any sense lol Now when Beast Wars came out, god that was a battle! I had probably.....I'll say close to 30, I loved those toys to death too, probably what made me the transformer freak collector I am today! Anyways, my mom would do the same thing, empty my room of things that I actually played with and liked, and left me bored till my bday or xmas because she always got rid of the things I played with or enjoyed the most! They gave me an opportunity to like "buy" ONE beast war back if I did something like clean their bathroom, only to have them taken away again the next time she cleaned out my room. She was gona try to put them all in our next garage sale, but I remembered how sad I was to see my Jazz leave in someone else's hands, so I snuck them all back in my room and they've been in a safe place under my bed for the last 9 years or so.
