Besides break them, I guess borrow them and never give them back, but I would do the same, so I wasn't mad.

My uncle used to tie a cobra trooper to firecrackers and put them in the middle of a bunch of joes, then he would light up the firecracker and blow them up like a terrorist.

The kid with sticky fingers who would steal a little from all of us thinking no one would notice.
Same kid got his when he left a bag of TFs at a friends house, we melted them all down to scrap with our lighters. What you guys didnt carry a lighter when you were 8?
Justice was served at school when he got his bag back.

I had the twins when I was a kid and brought them in for show and tell...Grade 2 or 3 maybe. One of the kids I played with at school asked if he could borrow them overnight and I let him. He didn't show up at school the next day...or ever again. Found out later that he moved to a different town. Since then I have been extremely against lending anybody anything for fear of getting burned. Funny how childhood tragedy can affect your outlook on things later in life.

Well I guess having two older brothers saved me from having my figures stolen by friends. What I mean is my brothers were 4 and 5 years older and they obviously had sticky-fingered friends in the past. I lived out in the country in MS and my friends didn't get to come over often and we didn't play too much with my Joes mainly cause they didn't play right, but usually mom would say go outside and play. So we would mostly go outside and play with waterguns and be G I Joe or Cobras or we would play football, soccer, basketball or some other sport.
When we did play with the Joes at the end of the day when their parents came to pick them up my mom made sure they returned all my Joes. I guess mom and dad went through missing toys before with my older brothers. Also the guys I invited over weren't douches, there was a couple of guys I went to and saw how they treated their Joes and no way in hell would I let them play with mine.
Fast forward when I was in college and I came home for Christmas. My oldest brother and his wife and daughter where already in for the holidays and I walk into my room here I my 8 year old niece was on my bed playing with some Joes. I asked where she got them and my mom had my brother get a box out of my closet and give her something to play with. She loved them and didn't mind until.....when they left back for TX Road Pig, Zartan, and Major Bludd came up missing when I went to box them up and head back up for college. I didn't want to tell anyone that my Joes were missing but I was a little ticked. The next time I talked to them I asked my niece if she knew where they were and she said she put them up.
Two years later when I graduated and moved to Houston TX from Mississippi my now wife and I went up to Austin to visit my brother. We were given her room to stay in. I started to snoop around and a low and behold I found my MIA Joe's. My wife chuckled as did I and I put them in my suitcase.......my niece never told her parents that "her" Joes were missing.

I was an only child and therefore loved playing by myself, however in the off chance I played with neighborhood kids, there usually was a mutual understanding how things would turn out. It was basically re-enactments of the cartoon. So who ever was Cobra knew they were going to lose in the end. Except if it were a friday then we knew we could "to be continued" till Saturday.
I had this one friend though who would double or triple toy if you will, he's mesh He-man, G.I. Joe, and Transformers together. I hated that shat, they were all different scales, What the French toast was he thinking?
My best friend when I was younger had the terrordrome and I did not so I loved being the bad guys when I'd play over his house, though I'd have to lose all the time.

i had a friend who had everything before everyone else. he always won, blah blah blah. but that was childish envy, i soon realized he was just spoiled, but the good thing is he utilized that determination to go far in life. also i think he lost a ton of my old ones, including firefly, in a mud battle by the ditch. but of course he never admitted it. what's sad is i never tried to procure his collection before it was too late...i should give him a call. COBRA!
