Being a 15 year old who has just started collecting, much of my collection is childhood toys that are in relatively good condition. However, some figures didnt survive the childhood abuse. while many are in critical condition, and never leave the basement, others retained only minor breaks. for instance, the "pole" that keeps the bumper attached to voyager ironhide broke on mine. however, other than being able to remove the bumper, there is very little problems caused by this, so i keep it displayed regardless. thinking about this made me curious as to what more experienced collectors would do in a similar situation.
