    This little guy survived the Great Purge of 2010 by simply not having his partner and not having a spot in any other lot I was selling.

    Crosshairs and his targetmaster were the only ones to survive complete. A Ramjet body and broken Runabout and Runamuck don't count. But then, I didn't have that many Transformers as a kid. They were hard to come by.

    That'd be Costco exclusive armada overload. That's all that's left from my early childhood. :1

    From the last move, the only ones that I had at that point were Music Label Soundwave, Powermaster Optimus Prime, and Universe Wreck-Gar.

    Armada Powerlinx Cyclonus. Mini-Con and the ability to stay transformed are missing.

    Ah, my first Transformer...

    No Transformer survived my childhood. (granted I only had ~6 or so)

    I'm not sure what happened to a lot of my childhood collections. Got most of what I had from Lego and Jurassic Park and a few other oddballs, but stuff like Power Rangers, TMNT, and Darkwing Duck, which I had a lot of and was completely obsessed with at the time, are totally gone. I'd kinda expect to still have something.

    I think my official survivor count was 176 or so.

    All owned, bought, gifted or traded for by me back in the day. All of them are intertwined with everything else now though........

    Hotrod, Ultra Magnus and Galvatron all made it from the eighties to today. They survived hidden in a trunk and mixed in with various other odds n' ends.

    I've still got:

    -Optimus Prime (original)
    -Jazz (unfortunately I painted him black)
    -Wheeljack
    -Hound (1 mirror broken off, 1 tire tearing, and he came out of the box without -the jeep turret gun- manufacturing error) :( 
    -Huffer (arm broken and glued)
    -Grimlock
    -Hot Rod
    -Kup
    -Cyclonus
    -Scorge

    I've also got a really cool G2 gold chrome Bumblebee

    I think that's it.

    I wish I'd kept:
    -Sludge
    -Brawn
    -Megatron

    I think the last of my childhood G1/G2 figures is G1 Hi-Q.

    Beast Machines Optimus and Jetstorm are all that's left of my extensive childhood collection before I started buying stuff again as an adult.

    Well, from childhood, none, my mom threw out toy we were not using every 6 months or so, esp right before Christmas. You know how many Christmas' I was pissed off cause I got something that would go with another G.I.Joe/TF/Thundercats/Voltron and then I'd go look for the rest and cannot find the rest of them and then fight with my brother cause I thought he lost them?

    To make it worse, any of the above toys that I got for Christmas or my birthday, my mom would glue all the missles/guns on the figures, so some figures would never transform cause the gun was stuck in the hand. It sucked..until I broke the glue off..

    As far as my drug dealing, acid popping days from back around 1999, I have all of them, check out my collection in my sig and look for the BW/BM/RiD and you'll see..

    Guess I'm odd man out since all my TF's survived my childhood. Couple of broken figs like G2 Jazz, slingshot and Hook. Still have them though and might try to fix my jazz. >_>

    I'm along the same lines. My entire G1 childhood collection (just about 100 figures from 84-90) survived being away at college and multiple moves. They're currently still sitting stored away in my attic in the same bins that moved them from New York 9 years ago. They're all loose except for Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, and Metroplex that are still in their original foam boxes. :D  Sorry, no pics yet though. After reading other peoples' responses, I feel kind of lucky to still have them!
