What is the worst thing that happened to your collection?
As the title explains, what's the worst thing that happened to your LEGO collection?
Mine was a couple of years ago. I had a room where all my sets were built and sorted on shelves with a large table in the middle with a city display including trains, fire, police, ...
But somhow my brother came into the room when i wasn't home playing with a toy and completely smashed everything to pieces so i have to rebuilt everything.
I still have 17 boxes full of bricks that i have to rebuilt (luckily i kept all my instructions).
so far i've managed to ruibuilt half my collection but i'm afraid that alot of pieces have gone missing over the years.
So now you guys :)

LOL @ wagnerml2
You all know what happened after a few years. But it really hit home to me only after I moved before high school and started re-opening all those boxes, only to see this sickly yellow hue emanating from every thing that was once pure white.
Very sad. These are only two of many. Too horrible to show more.
I mean you should see some of the teeth marks on my pieces, wrecked stickers, sometimes magic markers parts, wear on the figs , especially the space ones (white ones with gold graphics are almost impossible to find at times) I mean I played with my toys..(not violently, but as a lot of kids did)...
Consequently the best thing to happen to my Lego collection was Bricklink :-)
I guess it could be worse, when I was building my '80's', and train, collection I was buying part lots off of eBay: bite marks, sun wear, (Like DEEP yellowing) Graphics missing, stuff that I presumed/hope was chocolate on the parts, magic marker, glue, paint, smoke smell, POUNDS of hair, mold, mildrew on instruction books.. water damage on boxes and instruction books stuck together...etc... and by teeth marks I am talking animal teeth...
I have gone through lots and have had blackened hands from the dirt and dust.... So I guess I was not too bad...
highlights were 6542, 6339, 4564, 6385 and a lot of smaller sets they were all complete, after all those years i have decided to slowly build back the beginnings of another town collection.
