    Those are some pretty frickin big toys to lose. Your spare room musta been seriously cluttered. :p 

    My only L&F story is I accidentally left an Optimus Prime Hard Hero bust in a mall parking lot. I had stopped to organize all the crap and clutter in my car after a convention, and about 10 miles down the road afterwards I suddenly had this horrible gut feeling I'd left something very important.

    I had a mental flash of me accidentally pushing the bag with my Prime bust under the car while I was moving stuff around in the trunk, and I panicked. I'd paid a good chunk of change for that piece and I had a horrible vision of some kid finding my bag in the parking lot and taking it home.

    I drove like 100mph back to that exit, and the mother of all blessings... my bag was still sitting there. I ran to it, and hugged and kissed it all over. I think I might have cried a little too, and said a prayer of thanks in spite of my idiot negligence.

    I moved my Mother from her house to mine in December of 2007. During the move, she said you left a box a Transformers on the workbench in the basement when you moved out back in the 90's. When I opened the very large box, which I don't know how I missed as I am a very anal collector, I found 2 G2 Hero Megatrons, 1 G2 Hero Prime, 1 G2 Laser Optimus, 2 Auotrollers, Roadblock & Dirtbag, 2 Laser cycles, Road Rocket & Road Pig, and 2 G1 figures, Ironhide & Ratchet. All were MOSC or MISB.
    I have them all on display, what a find!!!

    My G1 Groove's right cannon disappeared awhile back. The only thing missing from my big bag of G1 toys (unless you count Gears, but he disappeared ages ago). I was cleaning out another box of old stuff to sell off at a garage sale and the cannon turned up in a bag with some other old action figures. Only TF accessory I'd ever lost (meanwhile, the vast majority of my Star Wars GI Joe figures have to go into battle unarmed).

    O.K., you know WST Soundwave? You know how he comes with a TINY Ravage? (Wait, it gets better.) You know how Ravage's "legs" just kinda peg on? Well, one day, Ravage's back "leg" decided to fall off, and after a MONTH of searching for it , I finally found it... in between the keys of my computer keyboard.

    all my bw figs and a couple of my g1's (starscream and swindle) had been lost since the early 2000's
    id totally convinced myself that in all the moveing i have done in my life i had lost them and id almost come to accept it

    then one day i was clearing out our spare room and low and behold ALL my beast wars were in one bag (im talking at least 20 fig dont know how i missed it) and the g1's were underneath it

    one of the happiest days of my life
