    As the title suggests, have you ever found a Transformer in your room or among your collection you just didn't know you had?

    I was just searching my room for something, as my mom ransacked/cleaned it for me/her while I was in school. I found a Hacker X3 from the movie line inside its packaging. No plastic or twisty ties, just the figure in the package.

    *adds one to the TF count*

    Yes. I found G1 Beachcomber in a box of random junk that I had packed away. Pretty cool find and he's in nice shape too!

    I don't think so. Well, except the time I learned that weirdo thing with the Go-Bots was the Jet Powerdasher.

    I do sometimes find a TF I've not looked at in a while and spend a good half hour fiddling about with them and by extension, whoever else was on that bit of the shelf.

    I once found an Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus RID Spychangers in a ziploc in my basement after about 5 years of storage.

    I also discovered a complete energon Cruellock in my collection a few months back. I swear I do not remember getting him at all. Seriously.

    Actually, quite often. Not because of uncontrollable, compulsive buying, but because I'm getting old!
    Lots of smaller Cybertron figures for example. I forgot that I bought them, and it's only a few years.

    Though I think it happens more often to people who buy bulk lots on eBay.

    That sounds like PTSD...
    You trying to forget it, or is it so bad you subconsciously forget?

    I did that with X-Brawn for a while..

    Yeah, i have come across a figure i forgot i had. but never a TF. It's always a Gundam.

    I found a G1 Runabout in a box in my mom's basement. I don't remember buying it when I was a kid, but my mom swears she remembers me playing with it as a kid.
