    Were there any Transformers or pieces of a Transformer you lost when you were a child? I lost one of Cybertron Sideways' wing blades (I was still a child during the Cybertron era)

    Almost every one of my g1 figures go bots and so on. My dad was in the army and we moved a lot even after he left. Bugs me to this day not knowing what happened to a lot of my toys.

    Long story short? My younger brother (at the time 8) & I (10) were left home alone one day. He was always a tinkerer, and pretty good with electronics. He was messing around with a CB radio & was going to hook it up... He'd stripped an electrical power cable (from a fan or something?) & plugged it directly into the wall outlet... Now, mind you, this was a CB for an automobile (DC power), which he plugged into a wall outlet (AC)...

    Needless to say, the display got REALLY bright for a second; before a puff of smoke came out the top of it. It was *fried*. We got GROUNDED, but not just 'regular' grounded; our (thankfully shortly thereafter Ex-) Stepmother took away *ALL* of our toys & donated them to Goodwill/threw them away...

    Figures I can remember having at the time?
    G1:
    Top Spin
    Twin Twist
    Powerglide
    Warpath
    Cosmos
    Brawn
    Trailbreaker
    Cliffjumper
    Thundercracker
    Sludge
    Grimlock


    Go-Bots:
    Loco (still haven't replaced him yet)
    Rogun (the transforming cap-gun/laser rifle)
    Road Ranger
    Trakks
    Leader-1
    Cy-Kill

    I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones I can remember losing that summer...

    At my pre-school, I threw my Prince Adam mail away figure up onto the school roof. I don't really know why but he was gone forever.

    I let my friend borrow my Beast Wars Terrorsaur and he lost the gun. But he kept making excuses for not losing it like,

    I was to keep it for my other beast wars toys.
    It got caught in the newspapers and now it's at the dump.
    I fell in the sewer drain.

    In my childhood, not one piece of my TF collection did I ever lose, now that I'm grown up I lose stuff all the time! I don't sweat it anymore if it's a missile or non essential accessory.

    As a kid I did lose a lot of my Micronaut accessories (Time Traveler's belt, Akroyear's sword, etc.)

    Man I miss Micronauts......so cool.......

    Took my G1 sandstorm (was that the triple changers name? o_O ) to the park by my grandparents, and burried him in the sand. Carelessly walked away for a little bit, and when I went back to get him, someone else had dug him up and left with him in hand :( .

    I have a vintage Powermaster Optimus Prime that is in amazing shape, except that I lost Hi-Q when I was a kid.

    Good grief where do I start...All G1 figures
    Prime both fist, Sixshot 1 gun, all 5 dinobots are missing some missiles or swords, Metroplex's Scamper both guns/arms, lazerbeak guns, Omega Supreme top part of rocket plus a few yellow clips for his legs, All 4 stunticon cars are missing all their guns, Jetfire most of his red armor pieces, Slugslinger with Calaburst no idea where he ran off to..., Soundwave's missiles. I'm going to stop there though I could easily name more... I'm just getting to damn depressed now.

    i remember having a G1 Jetfire that broke. My mom made me throw him away. I cried T___T


    i also had a punch/counterpunch toy as a kid that somehow got lost. we moved a bit when i was little. Anyways, for some reason i still had his two guns. They survived :p  but the figure was long gone. I dont recall exactly how it ended up but a few years back someone just gave me a punch/counterpunch figure, and then i found one at botcon for REALLY cheap. So i bought it. Now i have two! one displayed as Punch, the other as Counterpunch :D 

    woot!

    All of them...and my SW figs too...stolen by the movers...oh I mean 'lost' during the move.
    Still ticked off about it j.k..not really, only when I think about it.....Had all my fave Autobots, Optimus of course, a few others, like Prowl and Jazz, Ironhide and Ratchet too. I don't think I had a single Con. :)

    In almost 75 of so TFs as a kid, the one piece I lost was a spoiler to Wheeljack. The antenna for my Roadbuster is the one from mine. Full-Tilt's gun? Check. Omega Supreme's leg clips? Check. I still have the Robot Points from all of mine.

    Losing Wheeljack's spoiler wasn't a cool day. I took him to school complete to play with in the gym for recess. When we got back to the classroom, I noticed it missing. My teacher said to ask the custodian for help after school. He was cleaning the gym and tried to help me, but it was gone.

    I've since replaced it:

    I hear ya!,LOL. I was already a teen when G1 hit, but since I was into sci-fi and anime, robots and such I was completely taken in by them! Glad it was just a 25+ year phase I was going through!

    I never lost a piece. That's why I like Transformers. Unlike toys such as legos, I don't end up with a bunch of pieces missing all over my house.

    rather loosing stuff it was more like foolish trades i did back as a kid. i traded some transformers back then for some other toys that really, now that i think about it wasn't worth equal in value lol.
