    So me and my friend were kinda tired after grinding out some Lego Star Wars on the Gamecube, so we went for a walk down the street. I live in a very quiet area. Barely any people drive down the street, and all of the people on it are 60+ years old. So we got to the end of the street and started coming back. After a few feet, we looked on the ground and saw a 2007 Movie Thundercracker just kinda laying on the ground. I picked it up and examined it, but noticed it was missing its arms and legs, so we just set it back down. But the part that still baffles me is there are no kids down our street, and hardly anyone drives by, so i think some kid through his Thundercracker out the window or something. But yeah, that was my day!

    With neighbors all 60+ that could likely be some grandchild's beloved thunder cracker torso.

    This must be a thread that has been lost on the forum for eight years!

    hopefully the grandkid finds it. or doesn't miss it.

    i found Ironhide on a picnic table outside the YMCA after a swimming lesson in early 1985; in robot mode, riding his sled. i got psyched and picked him up to take home with me but my mom wouldn't let me, despite my massive "finders keepers, losers weepers" fit. after leaving i looked back to see a swarm of daycare kids run out a door heading towards it. mom said she imagined how sad i would be if i left it and went back and it was gone, so i begrudgingly learned a good lesson.

    i found a Powertrain partly buried in dirt on on the hill at the edge of my school's playground in 1989; left him there a day, took him home after i saw he was still there. probably because the cab part and screw holding it in were gone. that hill also coughed up a few legos and other random bits during grade school.

    About 4 years ago, I found Super Go-Bots Cy-Kill on the sidewalk while taking a walk through my neighborhood. One of the handlebars was broken and there were chips in the paint but otherwise everything else was fine.

    Why do I have a feeling this story would be better if the moment you found out what condition it was in, an old man riding by on a hover-round scooter drives by shouts "Gee One or Nothing!!!!"

    Well, the responsible thing to do would've been to return it to it's nest so that the mother thundercracker could continue to care for it. Short of that, I guess leaving as you found it gives it a fighting chance she'll be able to locate it. Unless, of course, she's the one that shoved it from the nest in the first place... the cold-hearted bitch.

    So do Metroid Prime and Zelda Wind Waker, among other things. Even if those exact games were reissued on Wii and WiiU.

    Point was it was a great console, and not everyone sells off their old hardware just because new stuff is out.
