    The "Why are you (still) not a toy?" thread going into Shadowlands

    Hello fellow collectors!

    So I started to check my characters' bags for stuff that I can Marie Kondo out, and I realized I have a lot of "what the hell is this, maybe they make it into a toy at some point?" stuff stuck in my bags for ages. I thought we could list these items here, maybe someone in the right place sees it and something happens. Feel free to add any items you find in your own bags that fits the toy category.
    Also, before a new expansion we usually get a new pass on old things that become toys, tried to search for it, found nothing. ?

    Mesmerizing Fruit Hat
    Darkmoon Cannon
    Souvenir Raptor - technically you can lose it, so it's "risky", hence maybe not a real toy that you can't lose.
    Souvenir Elekk - same as with the raptor.
    Starlight Beacon - Not current anymore
    Swapblaster - we grew up since wod hopefully.
    Intra-Dalaran Wormhole Generator - this might be simply a trap for collectors.

    I know teleport items used to be a no-no, but we already have teleport toy(s) from timewalking. I don't think these being toys would hurt the game. They are old/outdated items anyways.
    The Last Relic of Argus
    Relic of Karabor / Bladespire Relic - If people want to go back to WoD, by all means, let them.
    Direbrew's Remote - I have this on almost all of my alts anyways.
    Jaina's Locket - I know I know, but it's been 10 years.
    Admiral's Compass - ??? Might be a problem with characters that do not have shipyards.

    Dang, this is a good thread. Hopefully someone in the alpha can post a link in the alpha forums.

    I kinda regretted throwing away few archaeology items that became toys later on. >.....>

    I assumed the game checked if you had the item solved and added it into the toybox restrospectively? That sucks if it's not the case.

    I also despise carrying around the 3 "teleport to Stormwind" guild cloaks.
    Druid (main), Warlock (main alt)

    Great thread. I think you should compile the list at the end, and post it on the official Blizzard forums.

    Nope.

    Similarly, you don't get credited with a transmog appearance for having owned an item in the past and removing it before the transmog system was added.

    I still have some items from the pre-WotLK event that IMO should've been made into toys long ago:

    Argent Dawn Banner
    Argent Tome
    Argent War Horn

    You did get transmog credit from quest rewards completed before it was added but yeah, not from equipping a drop that you subsequently vendored.

    Hahaha, nope. Random officers in my guild will still attempt to murder our GM via swapblaster several times per raid. It's even more fun now that we're done with all the current content we wish to do and are now doing achievement runs in older raids with many more bottomless pits.
