Collection Losses
« on: June 19, 2006, 02:40 PM »
Just wondering... has anyone ever "lost" stuff that you never could find again?  Or somehow threw stuff away on accident?

I am 99.99% sure that all of my POP's for the VSTC figures got thrown out by my wife.  Here is what I had -

Scout Trooper - 12 POP's
Tusken Raider - 6 POP's
Luke X-Wing - 4 POP's
Han Solo - 4 POP's
Greedo - 2 POP's

I had them all in a nice little stack on the coffee table, and I think in the shuffle of 3-weeks worth of mail, it got mixed in and thrown away.

Pretty frustrating.

I really didn't need them too bad, as I think the Lucas figure is kind of lame considering they used the Commtech Stormie body.  But I had planned on getting at least one and helping others with the POP's, but oh well.

The only thing I ever remember losing was the Vintage Jawa blaster down in the bowels of my parents couch (when I was a little kid). I searched and searched amidst the cookie crumbs and dog hair, but for the life of me I couldn't find it.  :'(

I remember losing my vitnage Amanaman staff as a kid. About 10 years later I found it mixed in with my Masters of the Universe Eternia playset  ;D

Sly Moore fell from a shelf two years ago, and for the life of me I can't find her gun.  However, next month we are converting my studio into a third bedroom and the room will be stripped down to nothing.  I'm hoping it shows then.

Actually, a few weeks ago I found my Zam Wesell on the ground and can't find her damn arm.

I lost the stand to that Saga Watto. I think the Vaccum got it. I've also lost one of Djas Purr's blasters.

I lost one of the gun shields from the modern At-At and a gun to the Lego Gunship. Lost lots of stuff as a kid (although I became a Nazi about keeping track eventually) and had a small amount of stuff "borrowed" by kids down the street. One noteable theft, the hands to our original Optimus Prime.

I lost the lightsaber to my ROTS Holo Yoda. He fell off my shelf and it was never found again. Not a total loss since he never used his saber in a holo transmission.  :)
I remember my dream now.

In an apartment I rented in Boston for one year the pistol in POTJ Zutton's holster fell to the floor and I could not find it despite an exhaustive search.  When i moved out of my apartment, and I mean when I had just about every last thing out of there and into the new place, I was walking around barefoot, spackling all the thumbtack holes in the walls where my carded figs were hanging, when I felt something stuck under my toes as I walked.

Don't piss him off.  Zutton is armed again.

I had a vintage Cloud Car pilot when I was a kid. I used to play with him all the time along with the rest of them. One day, I couldn't find him. He wasn't in my case or in the usual places. I was upset. Then I went to my neighbor, who collects SW figs and he hadn't recently acquired one as well... made me wonder....  >:(

Shoulda force choked him and did the Jedi mind trick on him and brought the pilot back to Cloud City.
