    I've done some crazy things with my transformers when I was young, what about you?

    For me, I tried to freeze ROTF Megatron in a bowl, TWICE

    Needless to say, it didn't work

    ROTF Megatron? When you were young?
    Dude, I'd say you're still young. :tongue: 

    I don't even remember which G1 toys I had as a kid. :inquisiti

    Had G1 Snarler transformed around 2005 and got busy and forgot I had it on the bed. So I went to sit down and I felt something, turned around and I see Snarler's beast mode head off the body.

    I felted like a real idiot at that moment.

    As a kid I had Ultra Magnus & Scorponok leading a combined G1 autobot decepticon assault on my sister's My Little Pony collection. Obviously the pony army suffered massive losses with many going out the window, losing their heads or getting crushed :Gouki: 

    I don't regret the subsequent punishment ;)

    In 2004 I sold my entire collection, complete headmasters, alternators, a lot of completed G1 figs that I completed through part/piece auctions through ebay. Low and behold, I'd be sitting on a nice chunk of change now if it wasn't for those blasted movies. But we needed money at that time. Still, the most silly/stupid thing I've done with them.

    This one time at band camp...

    Though the silliest thing I did was sella whole load of my dupe (and some non dupe) carded Beast Wars toys for barely a couple of quid each. Along with many dupe G1 figures, the ones I kept having now discoloured :(  Ultra Magnus I'm looking at you!

    You sold toys because you needed money. This is a smart thing.

    Also, yeah, unicron on the pole wins the thread!

    Well, when I was younger (7th grade through about 8th or 9th grade) I'd "customize" TFs (and Legos) with masking tape and Sharpies. It pretty much ruined the figures, since the tape wouldn't come off properly and left residue (and there was lots of Sharpie on the figures themselves, in places where it was hard to rub off). I ended up selling all the ruined TFs in a bin to a guy from an action figure customizing group on Craigslist for about $80 a year and a half ago.

    Unicron on a stripper pole...well that takes the cake, or is it just a clever analogy of how all of us are just throwing our money at these figures yet never satisfied?

    I dipped sinnertwin & doubleheader (just the bot, not the shell) in my mums cup of coffee...why? Fuck knows, seemed like a good idea at the time.
