Mothers
 
... in 1988, shortly after I had moved out, mine sold all of my Star Wars figures(had everything from '78 on including mail order), for .25¢ a piece at a yard sale. She gave me the money that was made off the sale saying, "This is what you got for all your toys".


I have a similar tale of woe.
All that I have left is my Millenium Falcon.

hmm the moms i know usually only move stuff around when its left out in a place it shouldn't be.... Just saying!!    As a Dad myself the only time i move my Daughter's stuff is when SHE leaves her stuff all over the house.. I usually just fling it into her room as i am cleaning...  -_-

My stuff lives on the highest shelf of my office, where the kids can't get to it and where the wife knows better than to. Bummer on all of you who lost things. I sympathize but have the opposite problem, I keep having to tell my mom it is ok to get rid of stuff.

Best of luck though while it would be fun to unbox my collection again, it would not be fun to pay for it a second time.

My mother is the prime suspect. She moves things . . . lots of things . . .

 

I'll probably find them somewhere where I would never think to look for them.

 

It's sometimes scary when "honest" people just move your 'toys' around without any real concern about how much they are actually messing with.

I know. Understand, I don't *hate* her or anything. It's just incredibly frustrating to find my things missing when I look for them in the place I had left them.

I really should sell off my entire MtG collection someday before someone gets the idea that they should just throw out all of those "worthless" cards.

This why I keep my stuff in the garage, not a chance my wife will go mess with it there. The boy is another story...

I gave all of my old cards to a friend of mine when I joined the army, a friend who didn't even play. Now some of those cards are worth $75 or more. :(

"If it's not one thing, it's your mother."

Anyway, my mum just told me she met Kenny Baker. Apparently they have the same chiropodist. KB is really nice, very down to earth. Can't believe she never told me!

Back on topic, I hope your stuff has just taken a holiday to the back of the closet and is none the worse for wear. That would drive me crackers...

I've been completely through the house. I mean that in a very literal sense: I've looked in every conceivable location, and barring a hidden portal to the nether, these minis are nowhere to be found.

 

I'm thinking it was an act of thievery, because the backpack I had them in is a very nice one that cost me $40:

I'm getting depressed. Not because of the loss, though that certainly doesn't help matters. I feel violated . . . like my stuff is just stuff to take. I've been the target of theft plenty of times. I have a lock on my door, and it would stay locked were it not for my parents who complain loudly and often when I do that (even though they are welcome to a key; I have two).

 

I feel really lousy right now.

Did you bring your minis to a gaming store recently? Gamer communities are notorious for being breeding pits for cleptomaniacs. Every gaming community I've been a part of has had at least 1 or 2 little scumbags with 'sticky fingers'. Eventually they get caught, but not before alot of stuff vanishes.

Do you think they took them out of your house or car? Have you checked your car or trunk?

So sorry to hear that, man. Hopefully they still manage to turn up.
