    I'm sure we've all had TFs that for some reason or another have just disappeared from our collections. Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

    All of mine were from G1. Beginning with Beast Wars I was an adult already, so I took a lot better care of my stuff.

    My most missed:
    Decepticon clones
    Autobot clones
    All the insecticons (thank goodness for the upcoming TRU reissue!)
    Blitzwing
    Scattershot
    Wheelie (I know, I know...shut it.)
    Motormaster (I still have him, but he's a mess)
    Punch/Counterpunch (same as Motormaster. Looking forward to the fan club exlusive)
    Flywheels
    Battletrap
    Squawktalk (still have Beast Box, but he's lonely:cry )
    Waverider (always thought he looked like a girl...made a good girlfriend for Landmine)
    Skullgrin
    Gunrunner

    Ebay is great, but with so much new stuff always coming out, it's hard to drop $50 on a toy that you know you bought for $10 or less back in the day.

    I sold my g1 collection about 10 years ago right after High School. I think I miss the combiners the most :(

    I grew up during BW, and sadly don't have any of those specific toys at this time. Honestly, I miss them all, even the more obscure characters. I never had them all, but of the ones I had, I remember: Bat and Gator Primal and Megatron, Dinobot, Rattrap, Terrorsaur, Scroponok, Cheetor, Polar Claw, Wolfgang, Waspinator, Quickstrike, Cybershark, and Tarantulas. I'm sure there was more, but those are the ones I can remember. My parents were never to big on spending money no the bigger ultra class figures. Out of those, I remember playing with Dinobot, Cheetor, and Polar Claw the most.

    I know most of those specific BW figures aren't hard to find on here or Ebay, but being a college student, its hard to justify buying them right now. It also doesn't help that Animated, Universe, and RotF have been keeping me distracted.

    BW Ultra class Megatron. My first Transformer, and it was given to Goodwill when I temporarily lost interest in TFs around Energon.

    I'm glad this thread is here. I need to vent.

    I was ten when TF:TM came out. My original Prime (my first Transformer ever) was in bad shape and had been "retired" to a safe place in the closet.

    I had a huge G1, G.I.Joe, Star Wars, and MOTU collection. I displayed my Joes on the U.S.S. Flagg. It was glorious.

    Anyway, when Prime died, I was destroyed myself. A year later, Prime returned, but I still didn't have a "whole" Prime for my collection.

    Then, one day, while at KayBee with my mom, I see him...POWERMASTER OPTIMUS PRIME. I begged, she reletented, he was mine. It was like learning an old friend was lost or dead and then suddenly finding they had survived or had returned.

    I would sit and watch the G1 re-run season with my PM Prime, Ultra Magnus, Rodimus Prime, and Galvatron.

    I packaged those four guys together and even brought them with me to college, usually just kept in box. After moving to my grandmother's house after her death, I kept them there with me.

    Years later, I continue to search for them. I recently found the housing for Galvatron's cannon and both of PM Prime's black cannons. Where the slag are the figures? I sadly can't say.

    The search continues, but I think about them every day. Last night, while looking at my G1 collection for some parts to trade, I thought maybe they'd turn up. Nothing.

    Hopefully, one day, I'll either find them or buy mint originals.

    They were, and remain, my favorite G1 figures, along with the original Prime, which I am going to be restoring soon. They captured my imagination like no other, and while I have MP Prime and some Animated and movie stuff, it's just not the same.

    G1 Jetfire for me. I regret losing him when I got older and more destructive with my toys....

    Pretty much everything I owned from the Beat Era, when I was kid and just getting into the franchise. I mean, feel kinda bad in a way thinking about it. All the money my parents must have spent on stuff I either lost pieces to, broke, our just outright completely lost over the years.

    Ah, Gobots. Forgot about those.

    I only had a few, but the one I miss the most was Cy-Kill. Not the little one but the bigger one...he was pretty cool, even though one of his arms broke off. Some kid down the street stole it.

    We were playing with some toys on the porch, and I went in to use the bathroom. When I came back, the kid was gone and so was Cy-Kill. Ass.:banghead:

    I wish I hadn't let my mom sell my assorted toys a year ago, because that was just before I was really excited and interested in TFs again. Lost an awful lot of BW toys (particularly Transmetal Optimus and Megatron), the BW combiners, and so forth. Now, its kind of like scrambling to find the really iconic toys from my childhood :D

    I think I had a G1 car guy, all I know was he was a red flashy sports car.
    No freaking idea what happened to him.

    My HUUUUGE G1 collection that I had as a kid. I had nearly every one that was available, including ALL the combiners, Metroplex, Trypticon, Omega Supreme, etc. I either gave them all away, sold them or ended up tearing them up (hit that destructive, "I don't care anymore" age).

    Now that I look back I made a HUGE mistake :(
