    If you felt the Earthquake in the Eastern USA recently, how did your Transformers make out? As for me, just about every Minibot, Spychanger, Legend, and Micromaster I own either fell over or took a shelf dive. Glad my collection room has a carpet. It will take me a week or two to get everything stood up again. G1 Decoys and anything else small as well mostly fell over.

    we should be more concerned about the well being of others rather than our toys espeicially with the recent hurricane

    There was a thread about this in either Toyark or GD last week right after. I don't think the quake did much to anyone, I know none of my stuff fell.

    I had my G1 Superion fall over onto the Energon Superion with the FP kit. That's about it.

    It's a forum dedicated to toys. There's probably a thread over in GD where you can go be more concerned. No need to be all high and mighty here.

    Anyway.

    I live in Seattle, so this East Coast earthquake didn't affect at all (aside from hearing from my Aunt in NYC), but back in 2001 we had an earthquake. I wasn't collecting TFs then, just Toybiz Marvel figures and Gundam kits. I don't recall anything breaking, just a lot of toys toppled over and a few on the ground or having taken dives off the shelf of my desk.

    6.1 earthquake didn't cost me anything but an hour or two resetting everything.

    No effects at all. I live about 500 miles in from the east coast, and we didn't get anything from the earthquake or the hurricane. My Star Wars The Clone Wars stuff didn't even fall over, and those darn things fall off the shelf entirely if you so much as look at them wrong.
