Serious question time. No Erector jokes.
RE: Podcast 27 - Your discussion on toy storage.
I normally take good care of my loose toys when storing them in containers/bins whatnot, but I have encountered this problem several times, and it's one I always forget to consider: soft plastic.
Soft plastic on toys drives me nuts, because I always ruin it by packing my toys too tightly and without much regard for soft parts. The ears of my Animated Waspinator were nearly ripped off (full disclosure: I sold it not long after discovering the problem). The arm cannon on my Voyager ROTF Megatron is bent to hell. And those pointy knobs on U2.0 Cyclonus' head are now cracked, likely because I didn't transform him before handing the box off to some careless movers.
How do you guys store your toys that have soft plastic?
I randomly came across a website called, The Burning House
this morning. The website asks a simple question, "If your house was burning, what would you take with you?" There are almost 200 posts from people all over the world sharing what practical, valuable and sentimental objects they will take with them if their home is burning.
I've often thought about this myself especially with all the wild fires that take place not too far from where I live. Sure there are the practicality and sentimental objects but what Transformer(s) would you take with you?
That's a tantalizing question.
I would let mine return to the earth, where they would spend several thousand years before bio-degrading completely. **** you, earthworms.
