    Hello guys, I posted a similar topic a loong way ago and I got some sad, dramatic and funny stories about losing or breaking TF's, I still rmember the poor guy whose girlfriend threw all his figures by the window....

    Any new stories around? Fortunately my son has never broken any of our figures yet!

    My entire collection disappeared after some dude in the apartment above us messed up a pipe or something resulting in the ceiling in our apartment caving in with lots of water following. My parents were at the movies seeing Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade and my sister and I were at our grandparent's house when it happened. I was only six, so I had no control over what was to be salvaged from the destruction. My bedroom was the hardest hit so my dad called it a total loss. I ended up with what was left of Powermaster Prime, who had accompanied me to my grandparent's.

    Not Destroyed but stolen by a relative!

    A-hole cousin stole all 70+ of my G1 Transformers (including Fort Max) when I was 15-16. My aunt said it would be fine to store them and they would be safe there.

    To my cousin---
    Up your *&%&$^&%$&!!!*^)(%*&#$!!!%(*&%^(*^!*((%!(^!)&__!(!!!.... MF!!!!!:mad: mad

    I'm rebuilding the collection and have spent an easy 2k already, but it will take at least another 5k to replace what I lost!:mad 

    He was always jealous of me, yet he had everything! ......... I plan to piss on his grave if he dies before me!

    My mother installed ascented oil air freshener on a beam above the table where my tfs were. It dripped and Highbrow and Computron melted, but they sure smelled nice.

    I was maybe ten when this happened.... Mom and the pop in law got divorced, my shit went into to storage, he didn't pay the bill.....bye-bye. All gone.

    I don't want to talk about how much I'v spent to replace and rebuild.

    When I was a kid, I used to hang out at my dad's auto shop after school and during the summers. He had only one employee, this obese sloth of a man named Chuck (who's since died), and I used to play little pranks on him all the time, all stupid kid stuff in good fun. Well, one day I brought all my Wave 1 Beast Wars figures (except Prime) to the shop with me, and when my dad and I went home for lunch I left them behind. When we got back, my toys had vanished, and I never knew what happened to them...that is until a few years later after my dad fired Chuck and he stopped by the shop to say hi. That's when he told me he "might" have taken my toys and sold them at a flea market.

    That's probably the biggest dick move anyone's ever pulled on me in my life. I lost Polar Claw, Scorponok, Wolfang, Buzzsaw, and one other that I can't recall. What I wouldn't do to still have those. They'd be complete and near mint, as I always took meticulous care of my toys. Guess I'll break down and re-acquire them someday.

    I hope Karma's on my side, and that fat sack of shit had to atone for stealing my toys when he passed.

    About an hour after returning from the local supermarket to my grandmother's house with my brand new Megatron, my sister busted the arm right off him.

    well, I guess I "accidentally" thought I was great at painting when I was a kid, so all of my BW toys had about six different colored coats of thick paint on them and are in about a bajillion pieces, probably still somewhere in the house too.

    I also lost the horns from my MMPR Triceratops zord at school, so he had to be a Monoclonius from then on (I knew dinos like the back of my tiny child hand back then).

    Mine were broken my rough play but the most heart-breaking one was G1 Meg's arm breakage by a friend in '88! So you can't imagine how happy I was when he was finally reissued! :)

    I dont know what the hell happened to my BW Silverbolt. He was fine for years just sitting around here and there in my room. One day I found him and he was missing both heads, both robot arms, and his crotch armor was gone. Oh well! Hated his character anyways. Got the toy before i even knew who silverbolt was. The show thoroughly ruined it for me.

    Luckily I've avoided incidents like this (unless you count how many TFs I lost to my grandmother's yard sales as a kid) but I've had some heart attack moments...

    In moving my Unicron statue one day, setting it down with one hand under the base, said hand slipped and flew up. Now while it was resting on it's new spot by then, my hand gave one of his "wings" a whack that shook them pretty bad.

    The other time was even more recently. I have DVD Red Exillion, the one that's limited to 500 in the world. I keep it in one of those plastic display boxes to protect it and usually in my 'rarities' shelf in the corner. For November when I was participating in National Novel Writing Month, I set it on my desk for motivation, and when I had finished, I moved it back... by holding the box from the top. The removable top. And my floor? Hard tile. Good 4 foot drop. Luckily the box took most of the impact, Exilion wasn't damaged, but DAMN I freaked out. I've NEVER dropped a figure, EVER, and the one time I do it's the rarest one I own!

    A couple days ago my Energon Scorponok caught a case of the gold plastic syndrome and the shoulder joint snapped. I pulled out Cybertron Dark Scorponok, which coincidentally had two knees that no longer moved on a ratchet (due to some interior breakage that I couldn't have prevented), and started part swapping.

    Now i have one really good looking Scorponok, and one ugly one with busted knees that can no longer be transformed into jet mode. :tongue:
