    2 Cogs went flying (falling) brand new Henkei Roddy went down. RTS Wreck-gar fell off the top shelf, and powermaster Prime tackled my ko Victory Saber.

    Nothing broken, but scary for sure. And yes, i hit it kind of hard.

    Ever had one of these moments? Be it earthquake, desk/shelf bump, cat, etc.?

    Yeah, the old dominos. I fear those daily. I had it on my MP Shelf. Since KO Soundwave is so unbalanced, he use to fall all of the time. Knocking over like 4 other figures. The biggest bitch of it all was that Lazerbeak is on his arm and my Lazerbeak has this annoying habit of having his head pop off. So to make things worse. Everytime Soundwave fell, I feared that he broke, and then I had to spend like 10 minutes looking for Lazerbeak's head.

    I finally figured out I can stick some weight in his back and he should balance better.

    Oh, I remember those days. I used to have my collection on cabinets around our apartment. I lost 2 classic bumblebees from shelf dive :(  Both were from a cat who liked to get on the cabinets and hide... he also liked to open the doors and eat loaves of bread. No, his name was NOT Garfield.

    The other day before I got my new shelves, I had almost all my Transformers on my desks printer shelf area thing. Got up to do something, hit the desk with my knee and knocked two HA basics off the edge.

    One of the Cogs is a repro for Brave max, so no big deal there. But the other I JUST got the past part for so that one scared the crap out of me. Luckily caught it on my foot...well slowed it with my foot before it lightly hit the ground. Didn't even drop his gun.

    Wreck-Gar has the MaidenJapan stuff on it, so that scared me. But landed on my keyboard, so nothing broke.
    All in all a good bit of falling.

    Worst I have had was working on a custom Devastator for a friend and my storage shelves above my work area in the garage collapsed...crushed Devastator into little bits of broken crap. Every base figure had broken parts.
    I'm just glad I wasn't out there when it happened.

    Oh, a fair bit. I'm pretty sure RiD Scourge was trying to kill me at one point, because that mold should have -no- problems standing. And yet....

    I've been known to put an errant knee into my old PC tower. Shakes up the entire desk.

    Last time I can recall, it sent Mighty Muggs Megatron and Optimus falling into my hands (to save them from hitting my netbook), and Kamen Rider Ichigo diving off the top shelf into already full hands.

    Couple other things fell over, but nothing else going off of the shelves.

    That tends to happen to me on occasion.

    Usually it is my own fault.

    I'll set one figure down as my hand is coming away it bumps another.

    Classics Optimus Prime has a sort of domino effect.

    He ends up taking out Classics Grimlock.

    Some don't fall they just get turned to the side a bit.

    Fortunately no figure has ever broken in the process.

    My DCUC Batman Beyond has a few scratches (1 or 2 on the feet).

    Not noticeable from a distance.

    Back when I was heavily into SOTA's Street Fighter lines, one falling was just as good as them all falling. When it was a smaller front row figure, no big deal and they rarely fell off the actual shelf. When the bigger back row ones fell though (either due to a bump or just creep) then well, that was the whole display down and dying!

    You see, creep is our enemy, it's waiting, waiting and then BOOM something falls and takes half a shelf with it. It's the slow, very slow, tilting of something that seems fine until it just goes a tiny bit too far and suffers gravity's awful embrace!

    As for Transformers....well one of my bookcases that is home to some of my TFs has a funny floor board right in front of it so while nothing often falls, there's a small jilt going on now and then. So far it's just been my RiD Spychangers (who can't stand for shit anyway) and my G1 Cyclonus and Divebomb, both who cannot stand for shit either.

    When I had a different display, MP Megatron fell and took everyone from the same shelf - CHUGs, G1s, MPs... thank jebus I didn't have MP Grimlock at the time.

    No, but I have a severe case of ham hands/butter fingers so I drop my figures while handling them regularly. Nothing has broken so far.

    And due to space issues I need to put some of my figures on a dresser where I regularly open and close, thus shaking the figures. I pose them in a way so they're really stable and don't fall.
