      ^You were like my friend. She had a lot of those Crazy Bones, until she got obsessed with them and her mom decided to sell them. Pretty sad.
      Aw, why did parents throw the kid's toys away? I dont think I got any of my things thrown away, unless I was really little.

                I used to collect lots of Pokemon stuff (I still have a huge box full of god knows what Pokemon stuff in there), and still will occasionally add to the collection. But yes, I have lost some stuff from it during house moving proccess.

                  It's my own fault, but my mom wanted me to sell a bunch of my old toys in a yard sale. I was probably 12, and was getting much more into sports and didn't play with toys much by that age.

                  Anyways, I sold ALL of my Transformers and Ghostbusters toys. I kick myself every chance I get. I did keep all my He-Man figures though. I refused to sell those. But, I can't really complain because I did it willingly at the time. I just wasn't thinking about how it would be nice to have all of them still.

                    I used to have a baseball card collection till I got rid of it when I found out how common everything I had was. I got hooked into the baseball collecting fad in the early 90's when it was really popular, it really brought down the value of the early 90's card sets from Fleer, Tops, Upper Deck, O Pee Chee et all.

                    I've gone through several copies of Yes' Tales From Topographic Oceans on different formats. Right now I have a vinyl pressing and I'm going to eventually download a copy from I-tunes for listening on the go.

                      I used to have most of the Power Rangers action figures, along with the Swamp Thing and Toxic Avenger action figures. Unfortunately Goodwill now has them is in fact doing what they will with them.

                        I had a lot of GI Joe action figures when I was a kid. When I got bored with them, I'm twist them at the waist until the rubber band snapped in half. Then, I'd reattach their parts to different bodies.

                                    I found my Crazy Bones collection in the garage the other day and I'm only missing about 7 or 8 characters from Series 1. I also have a bunch of other series characters but after Series 1, the fad had kind of died by that time and my collecting became pretty sporadic...

                                        My mom got on a cleaning kick one summer and I came home to find out she had given all my Smurfs, X Men toys and some Disney movies to my neighbor. (I still hold a grudge), lol.

                                          From Arachknight's sad but true department.


                                          I had over 100 X-Men action figures. Original figures, box set figures, Wizard exclusive figures, and home made custom figures. Multiple figures of certain characters. For instance, I had Angel/Archangel in every costume he ever wore from this school uniform to his Archangel costume. I had customs of the original X-Factor, Magneto in his rarely worn purple costume with the big white M on it, Collosus wearing his red military inspired costume from the 80's. I had a shit load of them.

                                          Well when I moved into the place I live in now, I didn't have enough wall space to place my X-Men collection on shelves so I kept them all in a giant Rubbermaid container. My daughters kept getting into the container and messing with my figures. They never broke any of them, but I kept thinking to myself 'I need to put this thing in my closet'.

                                          Six months go by.

                                          I decide to open my Rubbermaid container and admire my collection, since I hadn't done that in over a month. When I opened the container I almost fell on my ass by a massive stench of ammonia. Covering my mouth and nose with a town I looked closely inside the container to see a thick yellow liquid at the bottom of the container. Apparently, at some point in time, my container had been opened (probably by my girls) and our cat had used the container as a litter box, and instead of telling me what happened, the lid was placed back on and sealed. So for at least a month my beloved collection of figures was sitting in a Rubbermaid container full of cat urine.

                                          My collection was completely RUINED! 15 years worth of collecting and customizing (not to mention all the money I had spent on them) went right down the crapper. I tried to clean the figures up but no matter how much I cleaned them they just wreaked of cat piss.
                                          YOU MIGHT THINK I'M ALONE IN MY ADULATION OF SPIDER-MAN. YOU MIGHT THINK THAT I'M SOMEHOW SOCIALLY OR EMOTIONALLY RETARDED TO STILL HAVE SUCH GREAT PASSION FOR SOMETHING AIMED, ESSENTIALLY, AT CHILDREN, AND CREATED ALMOST 50 YEARS AGO.
