    So, today while I was at school, my mom rearranged my room and my Universe micromaster Midnight Express just disappeared!

    Anything like this happen to anyone else?

    I lost my Mini-con Dead End a while back, but I've found him.

    Don't let your mom touch your toys - it can be hazardous to their health. In regards to my own stuff I've never exactly had a figure disappear, but there's been multiple times when I accidentally fire a missile and never see it again. Unless they really add to the look I display my figures without the missiles for that reason alone.

    Just after I got Armada Optimus, I put Sparkplug into the little Minicon box in Prime's trailer, and I never saw the little guy again. Also, I got the set of Armada Dinobots with Slapper and the Triceratops, and I set it in my room to open it in the morning, and it disappeared, never to be seen again. Still don't know where they are...

    I still can't find my BW Manta Ray or Armada Liftor... I'm almost positive they're still somewhere in my house though... probably in the basement.

    I also lost the arm to Cybertron Razorclaw recently... I have looked all over my room for it and still nothing...

    You people need secure display cases or cupboards. With padlocks.

    I just remember there was this one occurrence in 1988 (I think it was). I got Thunderwing for Christmas at grandma's house in PA. When we packed up my stuff and got back to Jersey I realized Thunderwing wasn't present. Everyone said I had to have brought it home because it wasn't at my grandmother's house.

    My mother found it back in 2003 while clearing out the house for a move. Turns out my autistic uncle found it later that day and put it in his closet so it wouldn't get lost. He never remembered to tell anyone; nor did we ask him about it. I ended up getting it as a Christmas Eve present that year. I was twenty years when I got that figure a second time - you can bet your Minicons I opened it up and played with it that morning.

    I'm usually good at safekeeping my things related to TF figures. I don't have kids and I have my own place with no one else living here but me, but I have recently lost 2 items:

    1) G1 Laserbeaks right gun

    2) both wings to Animated Arcee

    I have looked everywhere for these and I can't find them!!!

    Back at parents when I moved out i ended up leaving my BW figs up on the shelf where I had displayed them. When I finally came and got them I found that Cicadon was missing a single wing. Even after my dad moved and the whole place was emptied it was never found.

    Not going to even count the figures from G1 I had as a kid that vanished. Sooo looking forward to christmas and some cash so I can reacquire a Trypticon(which someone has on hold for me thankfully :D  )

    I never lost a Transformer. Everybody was forbidden to touch them and not only that, I kept them where nobody could touch them.

    Pipes disappeared a week or so after my brother got him back in 86. The following year Galvatron's black rifle disappeared. That thing is larger than most Transformers so I don't know what happened. My cousin lost a G1 Snarl. Killed me because I acquired his collection not long after.

    I lost GF Yellow Rumble's little yellow sword mysteriously after I left for college. I saw it before I left my parent's house, and the next time I visited it was gone. I think my little brother sneaks in and plays with em sometimes, can't blame the little rascal.

    I use to have a huge collection of Beast Wars, they were used and i played with them when i was younger, but my toys were alwyas well kept. I had them all through out high school and such. During that time i kept them in the attic and expanded other collections. When i moved out the summer of 06' My mom gave away ALLL my BW figures. It was devistating when i decided to do an inventory check of them and saw they were all given away. I have spent quite some time trying to recover them again.

    I didn't find my BW Cryotek for the longest time.. so long that I forgot I even had it until I cleaned out my storage one day and there it was. Good thing I didn't go to Ebay and get it first.

    My Beast Wars Transmetal 2 Dinobot disappeared. I have his tail but that's it. Another thing I lost is one of my reissue Ravage's guns. My room is a pigsty though and if I get my lazy butt around to clean it up, I'll probably find them.
