DEATH TO THE STEPMOTHER!!!

Motto: "May all bad things come to those who have the means to help, yet choose no to."
Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Get this. So I have pined away for a voyager galvatron for far too long to remember. Never believing Id see one made, I kind of gave up on it.
Then came the god like mania king and although I had to spend more than I usually would have were talking GALVATRON HERE!! WHOOPIE!!
So Im looking, looking looking and theyre all sold out. Finally I try ebay and low and behold there is ONE SINGLE FIGURE LEFT FOR SALE and the tag on him was the very same price youd pay the online dealers that were all sold out. $120.00
So, after a bit of worrying about being ripped off potentialy, I decided to go for it.
It was the right move. That figure in my opinion is glorious. Mine had no loose joints that seem to plague others galvies (quite the oposite infact everything was tight and perfect.) He quickly became my favorite and stood in front of my collection. I had him less than three weeks.
So I go to my fathers house for easter and bring old galvie because my reprolables insignias were sent there and I wanted to waste no time applying them. The whole tome Im doing this my stem mother is scoffing at me calling me an immature child and telling me I needed to stop spending money on toys.
I let it go, as I have my whole life (I was severely abused in every way possible by my father but primarily my step mom. Ill not go into details about what was done to me but I will say that the only reason I associate with them is so my daughter, Unlike I had, has a bit of family to see on hollidays. I Wasnt going to let them know of her existance, as I hadnt talked to them in a quarter centery , but the wife talked me into it.)
So I leave for an hour and I place my newly labled up galvie with his new insignias in one of his many awesome poses and leave him standing firm on the desk, far from the edge, upstairs in a room that is NEVER visited.
When I get back and go to retreive him he is lying on the floor with both his legs snapped in half above the knee joint, breaks were in the same place on both legs.I quickly deduced that they had to have been snapped in half and I was correct.
I inquired as to why that had happened and the first person I run across is my ten year old "nephiew who, laughing as he tells me, proclaims that " uhh hu.. hu hu hu yeah ma maw broke him hu hu hu"
So I confront her in high tones. She first tried to pull the " accidentally knocked him off card, but my nephiew already ratted her out and we all know that a three foot fall onto a carpeted floor will not snap both legs above the knee.
So after further back and forth dialouge she comes clean ans says again that "yeah I did it!! You dont need those god damn toys. Its rediculous and if I ever get my hands on the rest of them theyd be thrown in the street. I dont understand your fascination with childs toys but I think your a sick weirdo!"
Never mind the fact that she collects baby dolls. You heard me baby DOLLS!!! dozens of them to the tune of between $400.00-$1000.00. Hypocrocy much?
So Needless to say Im livid. Had she been a man Id had dog walked her right there in her own house. I want to assure you that I had done, nor have I EVER done anything to bring about this type of behavior. It was done out of some mystery hate for me.
I have not gotten over this as of yet and I dont expect I will. I LOVED that damn thing and I cannot look uppon his box without getting heart broken. I could try to super glue him, but Id have to be damn carefull and its just not the same. Id know hes broken and glued and that would piss me off still. (Does that make sense to any of you?)
To make matters worse, She continually braggs about it to my wife, father, nephew, step brother etc, but I have yet to get her to incriminate herself on tape as of yet.
I dont have the funds to procure another one. This whole thing just hurts my heart for several reasons but primarily because my favorite figure was destroyed by an evil, vintictive, hypocritical, sneaky, snake in the grass who braggs about what she has done and will never have to pay for it.
I dont know why this woman hates me and I dont care. I just want galvie paid for post haste.
Ive been told she said "oh for the love of god its a kids toy! Go to target and get another for ten bucks. We try to explain that these are limited number collectors items not ment for children, with a price tag far exceeding ten dollars, but she simply dosent care.
SHES ACTUALLY PROUD OF HERSELF!!!!!! :-x
This is mainly a rant and for that I offer my apologies but besides my wife, whom also loves the brand and has supprised me with figures Id really wanted more times than I can recall, I have noone else to speak with reguarding this situation. No other outlet in which to vent my rage.
Does anyone know what, if anything can be done about this? I want her to pay!! Help anyone?
Im affraid that If I ever step foot in her home again, which is unlikely since the falling out over this whole mess eventually resulted in fist fights with my step brother, (which I won....soundly :grin: ) things being said that were ment to hurt feelings by both parties and ultimately me bringing up the terrible abuse leavied against me that by the looks on their faces was supposed to be tabo to bring up and left in the past, I will break each and every one of her precious dolls. Then maybe she may get some incling of the difference between a childs toy and a collectors item. Not that It matters. Shed simply have dad purchase a replacement.
You dont just break peoples things because you do not approve of them induldging a certain hobby.
Yeah though. Anyone know how I can make her pay for this? I dont care how long the legal proceedures take, I just want her to have to give me back the money. What would I need in order to file a repore that would actually carry weight?
Thanks for reading, sorry for the rant and any help, or ideas are greatly apprieciated.

Crush in some of her doll heads and never fess up to it. But she will know and that is all you will need. After that keep your family away from her and your dad. People like that are toxic and will always try to ruin your life.

This angers me. I hate her. I hate her due to your post and I don't even know you, but I can definitely relate, coming from a similar backround, having people always judging me, those looks I get when im the toy aisle, its ridiculous, and the fact that she has a collection herself makes it all the worse. Ide take her most expensive, irreplaceable doll, and rip it in half, right above the knees and take the legs so she can't fix it.

No one is worth killing over a toy. So, #1, death to the stepmother is too much. (Rise above it and be better than her.)

Secondly, I don't understand why people in this situation continue to put themselves in it. If I had been treated like that, I'd have left and never looked back. I don't care if there's a child involved and they want to see the family members and vice versa.

Here's some food for thought: Keeping your child away from these people is a GOOD thing. There's nothing stopping them from doing the same thing to your child, like what you experienced growing up. Getting your kid out of that environment is mutually beneficial for all of you. No more suffering for you, no horrible experiences for the kid, and no more fist fights for you. (Which was ridiculous and went too far.)

I'll burn a bridge and keep on steppin'. Sometimes you just have to walk away. It's not worth your happiness, please get that in your head.

Also, if you want a replacement, go here: http://www.thechosenprime.com/ManiaKing I can vouch for The Chosen Prime, personally. Great people, great store. Use the code "forum" to get $5.00 off of your first order.

As for getting the law involved, no court will take the case. It's too small to even be considered small claims court. The most you can do is get the cops involved if you can find one who's willing to really look at it, but the most she'll get is a property damage charge, which she won't pay and they won't force her to. You're up a creek without a paddle and it's smellin' bad.

Voyager Galvatron? Is that like the henkei/classics? oR the Superlink/energon version?

As for your step mom.....that is one screwed up creature! Is dementia setting on her? You can have her committed if she represents a danger to herself and the family (wink wink). Payback is a beotch but do it legally.

That incident you mentioned can be used as a part of a case study to get her committed.

So this.

Excommunicating family may seem harsh, especially if it's a close-knit family, but ultimately it would be the best thing to do for both you, and the ones close to you. In fact, it would show how much they actually care for you on a personal level. Give that some thought. If they don't accept your hobbies and passions, they don't have the right to call you upon it if it's perfect legal and within limits. You're a responsible adult with a family, it's your life, and it's not theirs to live. She didn't just break your toy, she stepped on your very way of life. By stepping out of her life she of her immediate family may get a wake-up call that is is not how you treat people. She may not regret it right away, but wait a couple years.

As for getting them to repay your broken figure, do you have any kind of paperwork, like documentation or even personal conference that shows the price? Keep it handy at all times! It'll be vital if someone'd like to pay damages, or even just proof that it's no "mere toy you can buy anywhere".

I whole heartedly echo Autobot32 on this as well. I get that you are mad. I became mad along with you as I read about your plight. Please, as stated before, rise above, and let it go. People such as your step mother have to live with themselves which is punishment enough. Money is hard earned, but comes and goes no matter what so I'd order another one as you have such love for it which is something all of us can empathize with when it comes to having that favorite figure. Allow yourself the freedom to move on with your life and enjoy your family and your toys! : )

The thing is some people are proud of who they are when they do things like this, so it isn't much in terms of punishment, rather enjoyment. And if that's the case with her, then that's the part the OP needs to watch out for cause she could eventually begin to escalate.

But overall dude, best you can do is what others have already said. Rise above and move past it. It really sucks what happens and I despise people who do that. But what most of them are looking for is you to get pissed about it, that's where their real rise comes from.

Sorry to hear about all of the cruelty. Her disrespect and actions are outrageous. I understand the desire to make things even and for them to see and understand the value of the figure. The hypocrisy is shocking. I have seen it before too, it is like “you collect dolls but you think Transformers are for children?" Decent human beings believe in compassion and kindness and regularly practice respect. We desire fairness and justice but it is not for us to carry out. Property damage maybe, but really it is too minor for any kind of legal actions. The police may listen and file a domestic dispute, but not much more than that. If you escalate it then she could try to get you back. If she is capable of years of abuse on a human (you), and if she can do that to Galvatron then she could do much worse to your car or something else.

Don’t sink to her level, don’t give in and become like them. Politely ask your dad for the money; paypal, check, cash, any method, all of it. If he is cool then he will pay you. If not, then he isn’t worth associating with either. The money is significant, but it is really an indicator of their level of respect, acceptance, and kindness towards you.

You and your wife had the right idea, that family adds richness to our lives. But it is better to have no relationship than a poisoned relationship. You and your family will build other positive relationships with friends rather than that family. (Even if he does pay for Galvatron, then they should probably be avoided.)

Sell your Galvatron on Ebay and clearly label it as broken. Someone may need the parts for a different repair. Keeping the actual one will remind you of the incident. (you could keep it for possible repairs, but I recommend unloading it)

If you do have to pay for Galvatron yourself, then the money wasn’t wasted or thrown away for a figure. That was simply the cost of finding out that your step mom is someone who is still dangerous, not to be trusted, and someone to avoid. That is an important lesson to learn and not unreasonable to learn that at that financial cost.

Whether you get the money or not, Galvatron, one of your favorite toys, a happy part of your childhood and an exciting collector item now, actually helped you out. He suffered injury to show you how sick and twisted your step mother still is. He sacrificed himself for you. Our hobbies give back to us and help us see the world so that our relationships are clearer, stronger, and healthier.

Buy a new Galvatron. Your Galvatron will be the most authentic. In fiction Megatron nearly died and was reformatted. Yours will be similar, he was destroyed and rose again, like a phoenix. Forget the incident and just look at your new figure as one authentic Galvatron.

I'm sorry but that is a loss of over a hundred dollars. Break a few of hers and let the father Who seems to do and say nothing deal with the after math. If she threatens anything at all remind her not only of your broken property but also the years of abuse you went through from them. No one wants stuff like that brought up no one especially over a broken doll.

As others have said while imrespect my wife and her opinion i will never let my biological father near my daughter period. But imthinkmafter this experience your wife will be a bit more understanding.

first, Don't drop to her level,(which makes you the bad guy) but make it extremely plain that you respect her collection for what it is, her collection. other than that...minimize contact and make it plain that they are not ever welcome in your house since they are unable to respect your rules and your lifestyle. what sort of a response does your wife have to the stepmothers mockery?? I hope she is giving you the support you need. I feel for you, for the loss of money, and for the loss of a treasured icon, and I hope you are able to find something to give you closure and healing
