    I'm just curious. Have any of you brought with you 1 transformer toy on a vacation. Maybe something to do when you are on a cruise, a plane, a train or something? while you're wait to arrive to you destination you play or tranform you toy or when you are bored in the hotel?

    I've bought TFs while I was on vacation. Never deliberately brought one with me.

    I bought Deep Space Starscream from TFTM on vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC a few years ago. My first vacation in three years is planned for this summer, and if it works out I intend to take HftD Leader Starscream with me. However, if I have DOTM Deluxe Screamer by that time, I may take it instead, depending on space limitations in luggage, ease of transportation, etc.

    I brought Energon Perceptor with me to Bonnaroo '04 when I first was getting back into collecting. It was a nice size to carry around in my school bag and nothing I was too worried about breaking. He was there to keep my company and rescue me if I started to get a little too freaked out, man... Good times.

    I brought the recent store exclusive Legends to Bali. None of them lost. I wish I took pictures of them when I was there.

    I actually came back to collecting because my girlfriend bought me bombshock last summer. She knew I collected TFs and she took to the toy aisle in a Walmart in Vegas.

    So far I haven't brought a TF on vacation but I have done it just for a weekend out of town. I've used legends and some multi-changers (ROTF soundwave and animated shockwave) because they have a lot of playability in a small size figure.

    Mines was sorta.... I bought Henkei Hound and Henkei Astrotrain on BBTS, but had it shipped to my friend in Washington; shipping to Hawaii was friggen expensive. A month later I visited Washington and picked it up. Got stopped at the airport though and they had to scan the two figures.

    Never have. I'm too afraid I would lose or break them.
