    So I finally opened up my Hybrid Convoy THS-02 the other night and was fiddling with it when I suffered a horrific injury. I had trouble trying to insert the display pole into the display base, so I went with brute force and pushed really hard, the two pieces slipped and I tore my thumbnail down the middle to about halfway down the nail. Once I realized what had happened I just sat there stupefied at how this injury had occurred.

    I'm a pretty klutzy guy and have suffered all manner of bizarre injuries over the years, but I REALLY wasn't sure how I'd explain this one to my wife. "Uhh honey, last night I was playing with my transformers and the transformers won ? . . " Needless to say, yeah, she laughed at me when she heard about it.

    Has anyone else hurt themselves when fiddling with TF toys or am I the only dunce?

    I had my thumb pinched by Cybertron Metroplex the first time I transformed it. Other wise nothing too bad. Though there was that one time I sliced my finger open when I was modding Classics Ratchet to not suck at being a toy.

    While getting the Lynx head out of G1 Sky Lynx (the blue body piece), I pinched my index finger from my right hand and it hurt like hell.

    I also recall folding up some planet pieces on Cybertron supreme Primus to form heel spurs and one of the folding pieces made a cut on my index finger from my right hand.

    I'm pretty lucky, not that accident prone (touch wood) or clumsy, but every time I custom I open myself up to abuse from the soldering iron.

    My fingertips have ached after fiddling with a lot of them for a long time, or dealing with some particularly tight joints, that sort of thing, but nothing like what you describe.

    "Uhh honey, last night I was playing with my transformers and the transformers won." That's priceless. But I shouldn't have to remind you . . .

    While customizing with a knife the knife finally cut through Jazz's horn thingy and became embedded in my thumb... That was fun explaining to my wife.

    RTS Jazz gave my thumb a blood blister.

    I don't even know how.

    while i was trying to pop an awkward angled pin i managed to hammer my pin punch into the side of my thumb. i had to brace the pin punch with my fingers because i couldnt get the piece into my vise and get a clear angle on it at the same time. so anyway i had my fingers holding the punch steady and i hit it. the pin punch was embedded about 3/4 of an inch deep in my thumb and about 2 inches down my thumb. when i lifted my hand up the pin punch was standing upright in my thumb.

    Optimal Optimus shot me in both eyeballs at the same time when I was transforming him - so that was not a pleasant experience.

    His missiles have not been put back in the toy since - I think I'll be needing my eyeballs after all.

    I've pinched my fingers to hell and back. Other than that, I'd been pretty lucky.

    Light pinches, scratches, and the rare drop onto the head is the worst I've gotten.

    I think we've all shot ourselves in the face or eye with a missile. At least we didn't end up like that kid who choked to death on a battlestar galactica missile way back in the day.
