    I am positive I have a Cybertron Optimus Prime. But ever since we've moved we haven't found him. We have about 20 or so boxes in our garage full of stuff, most are mislabeled. I even found my Lego Ferrari in my sister's box of Barbies. So my question to you is, how should I go about searching for him?

    Darts. Hit a box, search it. Repeat.

    I'm assuming you moved in a hurry? No one is that quick/careless with labeling.

    I doubt it's lost for good... One cannot just lose a figure that large. Someone would have noticed it.

    Yeah we moved in a hurry, it's not that we mislabeled, more as used a box, unpacked, repacked, forgot to relabel.

    Time to go threw all 20 of those boxes. Not much else unless you have a Transformers Radar Tricorder.

    Go and have a cup of coffee or a bottle of beer. Just open a box a day unless you can't spend a day without Cyb Prime. Hope you won't be too stressed about him, moving is troublesome enough as it is, I imagine :) 

    I hate unpacking.

    If it has been that long, don't worry about Cyb Prime. You both have been fine without each other's company.
    Also, sounds like you hate unpacking more than I do :lol

    It's just with that new Wing Blade on he way, I'm excited. Although I have searched for him four or more times. My dad says to wait a week or so to look for him.

    Burn down your house and use the insurance money to buy a whole new collection.

    It doesn't matter what you do. It'll be the 20th box you search.
