    This thread is about all the strange habits or quirks you've picked up since you started collecting... What are they?

    Mine is actually funny. I've had this dream 2 or 3 times, where I wake up, and all that is left on my toys shelves is Cheetor, movie Brawl and 3 Roadbots. I get really angry and start screaming, wondering who robbed me... at which point my girl wakes me up, I flick on the lights, and find my collection still there. Apparently I only make noise in my sleep when I have this dream, I LITERALLY SCREAM OUT LOUD.

    What are some of the weird things you do since you started collecting?

    My sister lives about an hour out of town and has to travel my way whenever she goes shopping. She has a key to my apartment so from time to time she stops over at my place to use the bathroom and get some water for the long drive home. Every great once in awhile while I'm not there and she stops by, she turns all the heads on my TFs towards the door. This way when I come home, it kinda creeps me out a little. Hundreds of little eyes glaring at you when you walk in. She has also messed with me by moving TFs around to different locations. G1 Prime will be with the TFA toys....Universe Megatron will be hangin with the movie toys. Funniest one by far though was when I came home one night after a hard day at work, I stoll into my bedroom to find BW Silverbolt on my bed in a provocative postion with TM2 Blackarachnia. I had a good laugh and called my sis thanking her for the suprise.

    ^ Tell your sister I love her.


    I'll get dreams, too. Like I get a huge bunch of toys for dirt cheap and just after I finish displaying them, I wake up and get very disappointed that my collection was not as big as I thought it was.

    Or sometimes they'll be outright weird. One time I dreamt I found a G1 BW Megatron. It was literally a brick with Megs painted on it. WTF. I'll be damned if I didn't want it, though!

    LOL. That will sometimes happen to me. Ill have a dream that i got all these figures and toys(each dream its different toys though) and that i set them up, take pics, tell all my friends what i got and then when i wake up i look over at my collection that's prolly no more then 30 and feel just a wave of disappointment come over me.

    I keep having dreams in which I'm hunting for new Transformers toys in 1 out of 2 imaginary shopping malls...

    Seriously. And it freaks me out.

    Usually when I get a new guy, I'll toy with him for awhile, then I instantly want to go get more. How's that for contentment?


    Does anyone else act like they can talk and stuff?

    i had a dream where i got universe inferno, i opened the package, and went to start tfing it and then i wake up. Although i do like think in my dreams and after a while i knew that i was going to wake up, so sometimes in my dreams i just rip the box off and tf it. and it makes me smug, but then i forget most of the things when i wake up.

    So people who have those dreams try to control it and like take the figure, dont let yourself wake up. LOL

    When I was 18 I had a pilonidal cyst on my tail bone that required surgery to have it removed, while I was sedated I had a dream that I was floating through space into Unicrons planet mode mouth. What was weired was that I had not seen or thought about transformers other than my little brother telling me that the transformers were animals instead of vehicles a few years earlier. Now the strangest part of this is when I woke up there was a R.I.D. Bruticus sitting on the stand next to me when I woke up. My girlfriend (now wife) bought it for me because she thought that it was funny to get an 18 year old toys. She obviously didn't know what she was starting.

    There are moments when I think that I may be waaaaay too into the hobby. Example: My car has a Decepticon logo on the back glass, I'm wearing a Megatron for President T-Shirt under my work shirt, and my Decepticon logo hat is on my desk right by my keyboard. When I was at Target earlier I saw some kids flip-flops and wished that they had some in my size. I don't know if that's weird, but it's certainly different!

    One night I was woken up by a sound, didn't know what it was. Then suddenly I "just knew" that it was my MP Prime had fallen and had hit the floor and that's what I heard. I told myself I'd just woken up and there wasn't really a noise, but then I got up and went to my collection and sure enough, MP Prime was in pieces on the floor. Still don't know how I "just knew" that that was what had happened.

    My MP Prime is suicidal though, every time I buy one it ends up commiting suicide, and it's the only figure I've had do that. I won't buy any anymore. Three times and three broken toys is more then enough to teach me a lesson.

    Im weird in that way, I replaced the infiniti logo on the rear of my car with the Decepticon symbol, the hubcap symbol on my rims is the DCon logo, my tag is Strscrm, and most of my t shirt collection consists of TF shirts (some custom, some store bought), with a few ninja turtle, voltron and GI joe shirts for goood measure. My tennis shoe collection boasts all 3 of the Nike Transformer Pack shoes.

    As soon as the package is opened, I have to smell the new toy goodness. Breathing in that new plastic crack smell is just....wonderful!

    When you're in the toy aisle...

    & there's this kid holding a figure...

    & that's a figure you've been trying to find everywhere...

    & you think to yourself "How can I get that figure out of that kid's hands?"




    That's when you know it's a sickness... :lol

    weirdest moment happened to me just 2 weeks ago saturday.



    lets start from the begining. when i was young, three or four maybe, i had an optimal optimus. i lost all the pieces to it, missles shoulder thingy gun, everything. but i was little and couldnt part with the thing. so my mom wrote my last name on the inside part of the monkey chest.

    years later i sold it at a garage sale. on accident. ANYWAYS, i was at a garage sale 2 saturdays ago and i found an optimal optimus missing everything. i buy it for 3 dollars without any good inspection. when i get home i start to transform him and i see my last name printed on the inside chest.
    it was a little more beat up then before, but it was the exact same toy. i now keep it on my desk.
