    Sorry if this question is kind of gloomy but I think it's fair. Assuming that you plan on keeping your collection your whole life,what are you going to do with it when you die?

    Don't really care either way, but I guess I'd prefer it go to somebody who wants it/ would appreciate it.

    Not so morbid, just realistic.

    And, I've actually thought about it. Now, barring an untimely/unexpected demise, I would just give my collection away to friends and family...they all think I'm half a nutcase for collecting these things, so what better way to leave them all with something to remember me by! Then, I wouldn't care if they just sold them afterward...I'd be dead.

    On the other hand, if I needed the money at that time, I would just sell them off.

    I'd like my kids to keep my collection (when I have kids). Maybe not all of it but at least the main pieces like some G1 TFs and the Masterpiece ones. It would be really nice if they could be passed down....just imagine the difference between a G1 transformer and 50 years from now.

    Well since there is not one soul in my family who understands this or appreciates it, ( you should hear my Mom go off on me about my collection habits and how it's unnatural.) outside of my Dad, well, if he's still available, it's all his, if not..well, here's hoping it isn't just tossed away to some nothingness.

    I'd have my wife PM one of the fellows I know from here to sell them off.

    I have no intention of having children, so that's not an option. My plans are...

    - I will be cremated and my ashes packed inside the empty compartments of Armada Unicron's robot mode (shins, abdomen, wrists, etc). Unicron will then be interred as an 'urn'.
    - My collection (sans Unicron) will be appraised. Any valuable pieces will be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to a children's charity. The remaining figures will be donated directly to an interested children's charity.

    My mother brought up this point to me recently about keeping things MISB. She said what the hell are you doing? Open them and enjoy them, why keep them MISB so someone else will be able to sell them and make a fortune? We have a very small family, I think I'm the youngest and I don't like children. :lol  I'd want to leave the toys or the money from them to an animal charity or no kill shelter.

    I've often asked myself this question. I'd give them to my daughter most likely, as she loves them as much as I do, and it'd be something for her to remember her daddy by.

    I'll give them away before I die. Unless I die unexpectedly in which case, oh well.

    Probably leave it up to my wife what to do with them. If she wants to keep tham as a geeky rememberance, great (maybe she'll finally let a few in her side of the office)... if we have any kids by then, and she thinks it would be better to give them to them, that's cool too.

    Needless to say, if possible I will haunt them. There are haunted houses, haunted cars, haunted objects..... I think it's high time there were some haunted Transformers.

    The family must keep them in the family forever or face a haunting by me.
