    Has your wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend ever threatened your TF collection? I.E. if you left and/or pissed them off? Mine has. My wife threatened to break one toy everyday if I ever cheated on her.

    Thanks for posting!!

    Not really. But she did get mad once and took a swipe at my G1 Jetfire on my desk. He fell to the floor and his backpack armor broke :(  I've since replaced the backpack, still working on that replacement wife (haha j/k).

    Not yet. I'm more concerned with them making me sell it off because they think I'm too old for toys.

    My girlfriend is a TF fan too, so the only real threat she poses is sneaking away my figures to play with on her own. :p

    :eek: ... although I think that would be standard policy for any person that had their significant other cheat on them.

    Threaten? No.

    Rearrange them into sexually inappropriate positions? Yes.

    Nope, never had anything threatened, held hostage, etc.

    I'd agree with BadJeff here. If I was dumb enough to cheat I would fully expect to see my entire collection in multiple pieces on the front lawn... along with the rest of my stuff.

    :bay  That's awesome!

    Because I love her.....and if I was dumb enough to cheat I wouldn't fault her at all if she went after my collection.

    Inappropriate positions? TF:A Prowl must have been a god-send.
    And here I thought my Blackarachnia was just tipping over onto him. My bad.

    My ex-GF from years back wouldn't give back my complete G1 Jetfire, because her brother liked it. I was too distraught from the break-up to care.

    My ex-wife threw something that nearly smashed my BW Megatron, but destroyed a Gundam Epyon instead (she wasn't mad at me at the time, something to do with the house - real temper issues, hence the 'ex').

    Sure know how to pick 'em.

    I had a girlfriend about seven years ago that threatened to have her brother (a lawyer) file suits on me, her dad (a policeman) ticket me, her friend smash my car, AND threatened to break into my house, steal my TFs, melt them in a kiln, and send them back to me with a video of her melting them. And this was if I broke up with her!:crazy:  She seemed so normal when I met her. I had to get rid of her, so I simply became the most boring, inactive person I could become. She quickly became bored with me and left me for someone else. Talk about dodging a bullet.

    The woman I'm with now is a lovely person who also collects toys. I have absolutely no fear for my collection at all, at least from her.

    Nope. My wife loves TFs as much as I do. Hell, TF collecting was part of the reasons we were drawn to each other in the first place!

    My wife (girlfriend 5 years back) used to complain about my passion for TF collecting. She complained that I can't grow up and knew very well that I will not part with my collection. But the day came when I needed money for my wedding, I sold off mostly all my collection. She was very surprised and shocked that I actually did that (which she initially thought I was only jesting on selling my collection), but I did. Now, she buys TFs for me. :D  :D  :D

    The wife once threatened to "throw them off the back porch" during a minor disagreement. I pointed out how quickly her "things" would make it off the front porch if such a thing happened. Problem solved. She bought me a bookshelf for more toys that day :)
