    Spinning off from an unanswered question I posed in this thread, I was wondering if there are any toy museums in the US that have Transformers as part of the exhibit. Or if there's actually a TF museum out there and google just isn't picking it up? Only thing I could find even remotely close was a mention on toyarchive.com of Takara having a museum, but if there's a webpage for it, it must be in Japanese 'cuz I can't find it.

    And yes, I'm aware of the Misformers exhibit, but it doesn't count.

    I also found a category listing for various toy-only museums:
    http://dmoz.org/Reference/Museums/Recreation_and_Sports/Toys/

    But alas, no Transformers.

    Frickin Cabbage Patch dolls have a museum. A Transformers museum is long overdue.

    I thought I heard that there was one in Japan, possibly at Takara-Tomy HQ?

    I saw a toy museum in Quichee, VT. They had a huge collection of old Star Wars as well as some G-1 transformers. A very nice looking Fortress Max too.

    A museum dedicated to all those 80's toys is something that I dream of being involved in. I don't know of one right now, though. Closest I know of is a dinosaur exhibit at the Natural History museum years back, which had a side display of dinosaur toys including a Dino Rider, some Zoids, and Grimlock.
