    I do now. Last X-Mas when I visited my folks in Ireland, I brought my recently obtained Classics Bumblebee to keep me company. I thought it would also be something my sister would like, seeing as how BB is one of the few characters she likes (and can remember). His wee smile always perks me up. :) 

    And when I was but a lad of five, I took Piranacon with me during a vacation in Baghdad. (Yes, Baghdad.) Unfortunately, that was one of the last times I ever saw him right before the war started. I vow to some day pick him up again.

    I sometimes have one in my work-bag, particularly when I was student teaching. One day, my silly high school students had no idea on what it was if they walked by and glanced at it near my desk.

    I don't. My TFs are very valuable to me, and I can't run the risk of any going missing.

    Over the last five years or so, I've lived in a bunch of different places and I usually took a few favorite G1 reissue cars with me to remind me of home. It really worked wonders.

    Nah not really. Although i would like to, i think its best that i keep part of my collections at home where i might not potentially break or lose it haha I'm just not much of a risk taker when it comes to those things

    Ah yes, like the miniature Universe Legends (Poor Kid's Toys) lol lol They are pretty easy to come by and inexpensive. Still fun to play with if you like and readily pocket sized for convenient storage on long trips :p

    I think the only time I've had a transformer when traveling is coming back from christmas when I was a kid. Get them as a present and play with them on the way home. I have a feeling that this is going to happen again this year as I got back into transformers for good. I'm sure my dad is telling everyone in my family to try to get me transformers of some kind for christmas. I think if I go somewhere I would take my favorites that are in stores and legends. So If I was to go somewhere, I would probally take my two universe legends, onslaught and blitzwing

    I always take an Optimus Primal or a Classics Prime on holiday. I like to take a delux sized TF on long journeys.

    Nope, mainly because I don't "play" with my toys anymore. I'll pick them up once in a while at home and convert them and then put them back on the shelf, and that's not all that often. When I travel, usually I've got other things planned that doesn't involve TFs, unless it's BotCon I'm going to or I just happen to be in a store and I'll look to see what they have.
