    So whats the stupidest thing youve done with a Tf toy in your childhood? Well here in one of my favourites. I was always mad tha starcream could hold megatron in gun mode. So I glued the fist of starscream on megatron to Screamer could hold him. Didnt work out to good. Feel free to list as many as you want.

    I glued a few things I shouldn't have.

    I painted the white cab-bot of Ultra Magnus as Optimus Prime (never had him as a kid) - looked great early on, but quickly got dirty and scratched from handling/transforming.

    As an adult (but not yet a 'troo' collector) I gave away G1 Monsterbot Doublecross to a friend, because she likes dragons. Still haven't gotten a replacement.

    I had a broken Constructicon and a Pretender Bumblebee and thought, "hey, why don't I create my own TF?" and proceeded to break both and Super Glue them into a hideous abomination of a TF.

    I have vague memory of smashing g1 skylinx and ultra magnus.

    I remember ruining Skylinx by stripping the leg gears, and the cab for magnus was lost/stolen, so I took a hammer to them.(I was 6)

    That is nothing compared to how many were simply given away by my mom.

    whenever a Gi Joe or transformer was coming to the end of his life I would line the sucker up, get the BB gun and open fire on his ass!!! it sickens me the amount of deaths I am responsible for :(

    I once got so pissed at my sister that I picked up my baseball bat wanting to cave her skull in. Thinking twice, I instead slammed it down on my messy bed. And.... into my Shockwave that I had laying underneath the covers. Then I got real pissed with myself. The toy was in gun mode and the gun arm was broken at the elbow joint.

    Thankfully I was able to find another one later that was missing some parts but had a perfectly good gun arm, and swaped them out.

    When I was a kid, I had an utter fascination with what happens when something falls 2 stories. I guess I just didn't understand gravity. I can't remember what toys were destroyed in this fashion, but I'm slapping my forehead as I remember all those dropped toys.

    For whatever reason, I remember taking a handful of G1 (Onslaught and Gnaw come to my immediate memory) and spray painting them all black. Again...not sure why!
