My dad talked us into giving away all our G1 Transformers to the Fire Department to give to needy kids. I miss Reflector and Skorponok most I think.

My dad was the opposite. Ever since i was little he was always on my case about keeping boxes adn putting the figures back in them when i was done playing. Man do i wish i'd listened to him from my heman stuff all the way to starwars (original movie stuff) to tranformers.

Oddly enough my wife's father was like that. She didn't have a ton of toys but she had boxes for her Strawberry Shortcake stuff, talking Alf and their NES (games too). He recently gave me an Erector Set from the early 1950's.

I got a plan to get all the new tcats and put them in the attic for my boy when he gets to my age, even if he isn't into toys like his old man he can sell them and make a bomb!!, wish my parents had done this for me :cry:

My dad had wanted to do that for me with the original Star Wars when they first came out. My mom said no because they could not afford it at the time. I did the same thing for my son and the Avatar movie figs. He has every regular figure and all the vehicles and creatures waiting for him.

Oh I got them on clearance the first time around. I paid avg $2.33 for figs, $5 for Small Creatures and Vehicles and less than $10 for the Leonoptryx and the Scorpion Copter. I paid $5 for the last series figs that really only came to the discount stores but they were worth the price.

At one point I had every power ranger figure. Movie line, zords, flip heads, standard, dragon dagger, morphers, pretty much everything. Then it all got sold in a yard sale. Didn't realize they'd be worth something.

I feel ya brother. Exact same thing happened to me. I've slowly been finding/replacing my power rangers collection. I found my dragon dagger in the garage but I am almost desperate to get a blue flip head ranger.

This happened to all my remaining vintage stuff over the years. Every time we'd do a fleamarket or yardsale we'd set the stuff out. The last time was in 2006 when we had the estate sale after putting my grandma in assisted living. I had unopened 90s xmen figures, a ton of old he-man and such and a bunch of ID4 figures.

I keep thinking of selling my Vintage Starwars collection, we could probably wipe all of our debts if I did but it's taken over seven years to collect so I don't wanna.

One time when i was little. i went to blockbuster with my dad. I had the original grey batman from the animated series and the robin to go with it. I set them on the floor with all the accessories(this was back when blockbuster sold marvel legends) and i walked off and left them there. Thats not the worst. I cried so hard because i had the super possable spiderman and green goblin with glider and removable mask in perfect condition and i left it in a mexican resturant. I was so upset. I also regret selling my starwars collection. I had been collecting since episode 2 came out when i was lil bitty. The figures that i kept passing by were the marvel universe figures, now i regret it cause i got a free captain america from my cousin but he doesnt have a shield and im dieing to get one. i guess ill wait for the new movie figures. I bought a MU pack with thor and iron man and the thor has 2 left lower legs. im mad. but i cant get over those spiderman figures.
