My friends and I used to build models to blow up, but we never blew up our toys.

You know, if I didnt ever find out what a vise was, or even a hammer. I bet you anything I would have over $20,000 in Hot Wheels and Matchbox....
Also, some of my Joe's got executed by the BB gun... I look back at some of them and want to cry! I found some of the parts... Hydro Viper, Lifeline, V2 DeepSix, and so many more I dont want o even remember.... My buddy and I also Shot up the 91 HG, a Snow Cat, Tiger Cat, Moray... I look back and it hurts...
Now the good thing was we only did this for about 1 or 2 years and then found out they could be worth something someday. the only reason we did it was because we had extra figures or parts were missing off the vehicles...
We were good at hiding them from our perents though, they never found out till a few years ago...

I never destroyed my toys. I never had that urge.

Ah the memories. I had a friend who would steal Joes from K-mart and we would set up giant battles in a large flower bed in the back yard. I'm talking water and air vehicles. We used black cats in the sand and in O-rings to create a real battle. After the battle anything left, we lined up and fired roman candles at.
By my self I took my hot knife from my Gi Joe leather wallet kit and burned some holes in a few rock lords and a Stunn. I also took matchbox cars and crushed them with the leg of a chair. I still have some of my damaged toys and all of my original Joe's.
My destruction had nothing to do with girls, just bored I guess. Now I only destroy things for customs. Great thread good read.

I went through a "phase" and decimated my Joe collection. We had a firepit inthe backyard and.............lots of fire and smoke. I remember loading up the APC with Joes and lighting the front on fire and watched it consume them. I would set the Mobat on fire and send it traveling down the driveway. I could kick myself now.........
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?

I never really got into destroying my action figures or vehicles. Like some others, the Hotwheels and Matchbox cars were a different story. Back in the day when they were like $0.33 a car me and my brother could usually stock up on cars if we didn't find anything at the store. Every 4th of July we'd grab some cars and jam jumpin' jacks in them and have races down the sidewalk. Before it got too dark, we'd pile up what we burned or charred up and set up a crash scene and just light that pile up. Otherwise if either of us ever messed up on a model car to the point of frustration, it was hastily put together than smashed and burned. When one of my friends grew out of the Joe's we'd line his up on a box and shoot them with either his pellet gun or roman candles. I also had a friend who was older than me and I remember one afternoon was spent destroying his vintage Star Wars collection. We tied the Falcon in a tree, lit it on fire and played pinata with it sending burning chunks of plastic in the yard. His figures were either blown up, shot up, or burned. A few years later he said he could've made some cash had he garage sold it. After he discovered eBay I think the hurt set in. All of my stuff from He-Man, GI Joe, Thundercats was all sold at our garage sales over the years in the early 90's. I always wondered how much of my stuff was bought for someone's collection.
Be careful what you wish for - it might come true, for the face of death wears the mask of the King of Mercy.
