    I want to get it out of my chest, and only you Transformers fans can understand this and what it means.


    I’m pissed!!! I had a small toy box with G1 Soundwave, G1 Blaster, G1 Astrotrain, G1 Runamuck, G1 Headstrong, G1 Bumbebee, G1 Sideswipe. But they were all in ziploc bags. I asked my mom about the toy box, since last time I saw it, it was in 2011. Since I didn’t have any space at my apartment, I wondered I would leave it at my moms. But the toy box was never picked up when we both moved out from our house, it turns out she forgot it at the old house!

    ☹️☹️

    They aren’t reissues, they’re the original 80’s toys

    I wouldn’t have either, but I didn’t have a lot of space since it was a small apartment

    I don’t know how you feel but I almost know what you feel I had a transformer book about all 5 I think movies of the bay verse and I had that in 2015 but my best guess is my mom sold it pretty much like this. Oh what’s this crap well this is going to Salvation Army! And then next month I ask her where it is and she says she don’t Know :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: So basically life Hates everyone and not much good comes out of it but the bright side is that if you go to resale shops you can find tons of old TFs that’s my only suggestion for you hope this helps:thumb

    That sucks. At least you enjoyed them when you had them though, yeah?

    Are you going to try to replace them or just move on?

    C'est la vie.

    They could have make a movie about some guy that buys a place and finds the jackpot of your G1 toys mint in baggies. It sucks for sure and hopefully whoever finds them can appreciate them.

    That unfortunate and I can understand you being frustrated. Then again, you haven't done anything with these since 2011 and didn't even knew they were lost until recently, suggesting that you never looked them up when visiting your parents or likely spent much time thinking about them those years. In that way, the loss seems less serious.

    Still, discovering that part of your childhood toys that are still or again, special to you are lost in a stupid way, can be very frustrating.


    Btw, it's not only TF fans who would understand this. Because I can fully understand the loss from another angle. When I was 11 my mother and stepdad divorced. A few weeks later he showed up again (likely drunk) claiming that his children missed having their Lego's. My mother not wanting the confrontation, walked up to my room, picked up one of the two boxes containing Lego's and gave it to him. However, because his chidlren never really were into Lego (his daughter had one set she never played with and his son about four that received about the same attention) and I really was, everything was mixed up. I had many, many sets and about 90 percent of all the Lego's we had was mine. I lost about half my Lego because of this. And with hallf I don't mean half the sets that I had, but really half. I can't even remember what I had exactly and none of the sets I had can be put together. (For example, I had a fire boat of which I only have the middle pieces: the bow and stern are missing.) I couldn't built anything I used to have, nor could I really built own stuff because I was missing too many pieces.

    This loss of my Lego's basically ended my love for Lego and held me back getting into it until recently.

    So I can from that angle fully understand that losing something like this can be frustrating.

    I had a full box of G1 instruction booklets, tech specs, robot points, box art, and misc TF paperwork and videotapes that I left at my parents house when I moved. I went back to retrieve it and was told it was thrown away cause they didn't know what it was. Even though it had my name and the contents written on it.
    Still sore about that.

    Well put.
    I find your loss much more infuriating.

    I moved to the US from Peru when I was 10. I could only bring the toys I liked the most (G1 Ramjet, G1 Crosshairs, some other figures, my HW and Matchbox, and my LEGO), the rest was split up amongst my cousins. I never found out who got what. I just hope whoever got my Thundercats Lair and figures enjoyed it at least as much as I did. Same with my Tonka steel crane.

    That’s a KO Devastator. The OP lost original G1s.

    Yeah, that sucks, but if there's nothing you can do about it, sounds like it's time to move on.

    As was mentioned above, it seems like 9 years have passed and you've been able to live without them until now. So, you could go out and hunt down the figures you lost on eBay, or go for the newer reissues and start rebuilding your collection. Hopefully, this time, you have your own space to store/display them and keep track of them.

    No use crying over spilled energon! Good luck!

    The consolation is that we live in a day and age where you can buy all your childhood back on Ebay for a price :thumb 

    Sorry all the same

    I guess my figures are lost. So instead of crying over them, I’ll get the upgraded G1 version of the toys. I’ll start with MP Soundwave
