A small one is one time I went to Toy Chest in St. Louis, I was looking through the Joes and seen Storm Shadow V1. I was ecstatic.
I started pulling the figures off (no J hooks) when I got to him, he was gone. Someone stole it, bubble and all. I was depressed. Can't remeber what I settled on either :(

In 1990 when I was about 18 my pops passed away and we had to move to a smaller place. I had each of my joes in individual sandwhich bags with their respective weapons in a giant shoebox. While I was at work, the family moved.After the move, the showbox was gone. I had all the single Joes that came out from 82 to 90 (except 2) and several of the ones who came with vehicles.

My worst probably has to be when my friends (most were a year or 2 younger than me) decided they were getting too old for G.I.Joe and stopped playing. I did get a shot at most of their stuff, but quickly ran out of trade bait (They only wanted radios and stuff to play "real" G.I.Joe in the woods behind the house). I was depressed because I had no-one to play with anymore as well as having them and their parents look down on me because I still played with toys. Oh well.

My worst memory is also my best one!
One time, back around '86 or so, my mom took me to CVS, which sold toys, including Joes. I had been totally wanting Storm Shadow for YEARS (or, a year and a half, which is "years" in kids' terms! lol) and I couldn't freaking find him ANYWHERE.
All the stores had the "newer" Joes and Storm Shadow was nowhere to be found. I'd watch the GI Joe cartoon and be so pissed that I didn't have Storm Shadow to play with my other Joes.
Anyway, back to CVS. I was looking through the Joes and, there he was! Storm Shadow! Now, bear in mind, I wasn't a "spoiled" kid, but whenever I really, really wanted a Joe, my mom would *always* get one if she knew I really wanted one. I didn't just bug her for any old GI Joe and my collection was filled with only the "special" ones.
So, I brought it to her and proclaimed how happy I was, assuming she'd just get it as she always did when I really wanted something. This time, she f'ing said NO!!!! NO! So, I started freaking crying.... like, totally freaking out. And, I don't mean in a spoiled "freaking out" kind of way, I mean in a completely devastated kind of way. I cried all the way home and all night. I mean, I literally didn't stop crying. For hours. It was freaking traumatic.
A few hours later, my mom finally realized how upset I was and how much it meant to me. So, she calmed me down and said she'd take me back the next day to get it! So, we did just that and it was still there! Then, after we bought it, my mom took me to this donut shop right next to CVS and bought me some donuts and we had breakfast.

Worst memory was leaving my alley viper and snake eyes v2 in my best friend's grandmother's car. They looked and never found it, I was traumatized. They were in a bag, how could you throw them out! Never had the love for v3, couldn't replace v2 and I was able to get another alley viper in stores but his shield didn't fit as well as the original one I had.
