    Title says it all. When did it happen and what Transformer betrayed you?

    Cybertronian Megatron was my first. Broke my metaphorical corneal hymen. Bastard never called my eye back, neither. Perhaps it's fated that I still can't find his missile to this day.

    I don't ever recall hitting myself in the eye... Face sure.. probably. But Eye? I don't think so. Unless it happened when I was really young and blocked it out. lol..

    That is what you get for daring to lose his missile in the first place. How dare you touch the mighty Megatron flesh bag. :lol

    Don't recall being hit in the eye directly. Usually it was my luck it would sail far over my head and just get lost.

    I remember when I got Thundercracker way back then that damn thing had a hair trigger and it went off when I was trying to take the launcher out so I could transform TC and boom that missile caught me in my left eye,from then on I held them away from me instead of facing me,problem solved.

    2007 Movie Voyager Starscream

    damn those triggers are sensitive. Though I wear glasses so it doesn't actually hit me in the eye.

    This thread topic alone warms my heart. Hands up: who here is an adult over 25?

    Not in the eye, but I had Ultimate Bumblebee on my desk at work and he shot me in the back of the head.

    I don't point missile launchers toward my face. General rule.

    Not sure when the first time was but it's happened more times than I would like to admit.

    Optimal Optimus. That thing was designed to shoot eyes.

    My 90's AT-AT walker would suffer from shootouts ever so often, but that was nothing compare to almost getting shot in the face by my friend's pellet gun when were dickin around in his Grandma's barn shooting at random things.

    I don't know when the first time would be. But the most recent?

    I was adjusting some TFs I had on display and my G1 Devastator launched his fist at me and it hit my eye. He then committed suicide and jumped off the shelf. I managed to find every piece except for the fist he fired at me. -_-

    I'm certain Movie 1 Voyager Starscream was designed with eye-seeking missiles.

    37, and I've shot myself in the face multiple times, but the best would have to be as I was setting TFC Smokescreen on the shelf the missile fired, and against so many odds, pegged my wife in the septum right at the base of the nose while she was typing a paper for college. THAT was the day I was told that the garage was my new collection playground.

    As for me, I remember getting hit in the eye last year and laughing; Hard to remember which figure it was......
