    During our conversation our connection got lost (my house must've gone through a tunnel ). In the time it took me to call him back, he was talking to someone in the background (they speak a language I don't understand) -- he told me that he'd just told his mum about the value, and I heard no reply. Sooo... looks like she doesn't give a stuff. She only decreased the value of the toy by $500...

    but really though for him, it's not about the value so much as keeping it in perfect nick, including the box. perhaps he should have moved it a bit earlier.

    I'm lucky, both my parents respect my privacy and space.
    The only change my Mum made to my room after I moved out to go to uni was to replace my old single bed with a queen bed after I got married so we have somewhere comfortable to sleep when we visit my parents now.

    on the subject of venting about Transformers.

    last time I was home I thought about transforming my thunderclash and shattered the chest panel off because I didn't realise the hinge was made of gold plastic. I now treat all my late G1 and G2 figures with super kid gloves. need to figure out how to fix it without destroying the rest of it. I have found a junker with an intact hinge, it's the swapping and replacing that's going to be the hard part...

    new thought, maybe I can make a new one through shapeways...

    Oh absolutely. He's spent over 20 years maintaining that thing complete loose in box. At least he managed to save the toy though... that's the main thing really.

    It's because he never plays with it (well, apparently he played with it 3 months ago - the first time he's done so in 15-20 years). I've been bugging him for yeeeaaars to give/sell me that toy since it just spends all of its time languishing in his cupboard not being used. But yeah, he really should've taken that with him.

She knows my habits and stuff and as a sign of respect asks.... that is just rude of your friend's mum Gok.
    That's really nice and liberal of your mum. My mum only starting taking my TF's seriously after throwing out a minty G2 Rotorstorm box with ALL my instructions, old catalogues, and tech specs that I collected as a kid. I was devastated. With my entire growing collection still being sent to Sydney while I'm working in Melbourne now, I'm still ever afraid that mum will have a Goki's friend's mum moment

    That would be super cool! The sky's the limit once I get over the little problem of mastering 3D modelling

    At least he enjoyed it once before the inevitable

    Just put together my first Kreo, Starscream of course, and what a waste of time! Won't be buying anymore of them. Painful to assemble and very average to view.

    I agree. The only thing I like about them are the Kreons, but it's not worth collecting the whole set just to get one. Hopefully they'll release those individually packaged Kreons here.
