    So I was just messing around with some of my figures and I accidentally tripped, and of all the guys to land on, it had to be Waspinator! His arms and head broke off (but they were still fixable). Kinda made me chuckle.
    So have any of you had funny mishaps when messing around with your figs?

    Also, I'm almost at my 1000th post!

    Not completely TF, but funny.
    Years back my friends and I used to have huge wars including TFs, Bionicles, Star Wars, DBZ, Marvel, etc. So anyway we used a TMNT truck as a transport. One friend was over and the story was the evacuation of DragonBall City. So villains 'hijack' the truck and start causing havoc... and it just so happened that ChiChi was in the way as my friend pushed the truck... and... let's just say her arm is permanently paralyzed.

    Another was, as I was making my bed, I lifted it up to get some socks underneath, and the force from putting it back down caused a Mini-Con avalanche off my shelf. Sideways, who was perched on Unicron's shoulder, fell as well and knocked over some Armada Decepticons, who in turn knocked over the remaining Mini-Cons. Then Cheetor who was on the left side of the shelf fell off onto the other shelf and took out all of the Omnicons. I got so mad that I grabbed my Robot Heroes OP and flung him across the room.

    One more thing... I bought a Master Chief figure at NYCC. When I got home... I opened him, only to have his hand break right off 10 seconds out of the box.

    I had Primus on a shelf about 4 ft off the ground, and my dog hit the shelf, Primus fell off and hit my dog's butt(she was fine), and my dog has never gone near that shelf since. I moved Primus, though, to a safer location.

    Didn't happen to me, but I saw it happen , so it counts.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that apparently I REEEEALLY need more display shelves.
    Every now and then I'll try to take out a certain TF to toy around with, and it'll end up as a massive toy avalanche!

    I walked into my room yesterday, and right when I shut the door, ROTF Starscream fell off of my dresser.

    BW Optimal Optimus - I shot myself in both eyes at ones with the dual cannons Three-Stooges-style (luckily I wear glasses). I was looking directly at the guns while pulling back the trigger to activate the light-up feature - and pulled a little too far. I figure this must have happened to a lot of people - no wonder the Primal Prime repaint separated the lights from the cannon trigger and gave them their own button.

    i got some funny ones

    suicidal bumblebee: most of these stories take place when i had a tiny classic collection and put them on my head and foot boards of my bed. for some reason bumblebee would nightly if not hourly jump off the bed into the floor :D  poor classics bumblebee, lol he would just somehow fall off

    Megatron and Starscream: it was like watching a g1 episode unfold lol my lil brother was climbing down the bed ladder and his megatron's fusion cannon, which made megatron swing around and punch starscream off the bed. i laughed for a solid 10 minutes

    more when i remember them

    Congtats on 1000 posts brother and...

    There's something ironic about wazzzpinator losing body parts:

    before deltaprime - "Waspinator having good day! Not get shot once!"

    after deltaprime - "Why univerze hate Wazpinator?" :tumbleweed:

    my sister and i were playing, she had movie arcee and i had G2 laser rod optimus prime.
    they were gearing up to take on armada cyclonus's decepticons and both had they're missiles loaded.
    without warning, arcee's missile shot strait up in the air! soaring right behind my bed.
    a moment later, all five of ops's missiles fire. and all of them landed in the exact same place as arcee's.
    ah tells yah, them two 'bots are more trigger-happy than ironhide, cliffjumper, and tankor all rolled into one.

    I have a shelf full of 07 movie toys. In the back, I had Voyager Prime, and next to him was FAB Prime. Now, these toys are pretty tightly packed on the shelf, and I wanted to get Voyager Prime. So, I reached back and started pulling him out, and apparently, a part of his leg caught on to the string that attaches FAB Prime's missile to him, and so FAB Prime got dragged and caused everything in front of him to fall, including about 8 total toys actually falling off the shelf and a bunch others just falling over. Even though the shelf was about 6 feet high, nothing actually broke, thankfully.

    Left the door to my office open for about twenty minutes, and my 2 yr. old had eaten the tires off of ten of my Alternators. Took me a while to find them all including the ones the dog ran off with. The door stays locked now.

    tried transforming beast wars transmetal megatron and snapped the shoulder area with the jets. my jaw just dropped. the other time i was messing with unicron and i was trying to shoot that chest missile and it pegged my sis in the stomach. that missile sure packs a punch.
