    where do your toys go? i always take a toy or two when i travel up to visit my cousin, cuz he's a collector too, and i bring up stuff he hasnt found yet...

    i would take a couple to work, but i know my students would either break them, or steal them.....

    where do yours go?

    I brought Classics Skywarp to the bar once. My buddy bought him a drink and he even got his photo taken in my girlfriend's cleavage.

    Magnus was forced to stay in the car. He can't deal with it.

    I have a few sitting on my desk. Nice conversation pieces in the office and more people are fond of the memories than the people who ask why a 29 year old engineer has toys on his desk...

    I am an independent contractor but have a main office. I’ve just purchased 2 wall mounted locking acrylic display cases for G1 Megs and G1 Prime. I cut out a Decepticon
    stencil and an Autobot stencil to put on my wall as a graffiti pop art mural.

    Can’t wait to see my designers reactions when they see it as well as clients.

    I usually buy a duplicate of a figure that I really like and is on clearance and take that to work. If anything happens to it then it is no big loss.

    I've got my Classics collection displayed at work in locking overhead lockers. They're not clear, but the doors slide open and hide away while I'm in the office. Movie Landmine is in a different breakdancing pose on top of a Rubik's cube 24/7 on my work desk.

    BTW, I'm and 29 year old software developer. :cool:

    I have been thinking about taking a few to work to put on my desk, but I am afraid they will get stolen. I could always lock them up when I leave though.

    I have in the last week, for the first time taken them to school. Middle school at that. I brought Movie legends screamer, prime, jumper, and barricade, Movie Armorhide, Armada Perceptor, and Energon Perceptor, tomorrow I plan on taking E Strongarm. Whenever I take one out during class at least one person will say "Wow you are such a dork. What are you 8... can I see one?":lol  I hope to one day bring someone bigger, but being in a small pocket limits things.

    Movie Stockade is a barrel of fun. I had him over my work desk yesterday and I kinda found out alot of my colleagues are TF fans by heart. They just cant put him down. :) 
    Last week I had LOL gears (all of them) at my desk and the blokes in the IT department had a blast playing with them .....in their alt modes.

    And yes, I am old too, how's a 32 year old production analyst sound to you? :D

    I always have a few toys on my desk at work. Right now, no TF but Eva 01 and Mighty Muggs Boba Fett are on display. I sometimes bring bigger TF during planning days (a lot of people remember stories about them). Great conversation pieces!
