Are you a missile snipper?

  1. Heck No! That makes the figures no longer mint!

    My name is Mister Gone, and I'm a missile snipper.

    :D 

    So how many of my fellow fans cut the extensions off of the back of the missiles included with many Transformers figures to give them a better look? I understand the missiles need to be a minimum length to pass consumer safty standards, but in so many cases they look just plain doofy (and get in the way of posability in some figures).

    I generally just put mine all in a large box out of which they never come. Or lose them.

    One of the things that really annoyed me about A/E/C is that they made pretty much every deluxe and above have a firing missile. Totally unnecessary.

    I don't normally alter them at all, but I have broken a few on accident. I always pull them out of the toy and put them in a little plastic case. Some of the missiles are over the top looking when displayed.

    I never thought of that, but it really is a good idea in some cases (BW Transquito comes to mind). I LOVE firing missiles though, as I always play with my toys and actually shooting things is so much cooler than imagining them firing at each other.
