How do you display your Transformers?

Postby eileem0ad » Wed Oct 24, 2012 5:22 am

Hi all.
I have just joined this site & was wondering what is the most common way to display your Transformers?
Robot Mode or Vehicle Mode?
I have about 50 G1 Transformers & like Vehicle Mode but find Robot Mode takes up less room on my shelves.
So what is the consensus amongst the crowd here?
Thanks in advance

I display mine predominantly in robot mode. I have OCD, so my displays are all measured out and displayed largest at the back and so forth. At the end of the day, you're the one that has to maintain and look at them, so the only piece of advice I can offer is don't listen to any. Display them how you want to :D

lol For a moment I was wondering when I posted that! It is like you were channelling me! :P

Alt modes take up too much room and I prefer bot mode, even for my beloved beast era figures. I even try to group the beast era toys together according to their respective shows, though all Maximals are on one shelf and all Preds on another.

Anyway, I display my figures in robot mode. Unless I transformed it and put it on the shelf and I'm too lazy to transform them back. (:|

Almost all my TF's are in bot mode, except for those high-end ones with realistic and/or super nice alt modes.

The ones I currently have in alt mode are MP G1 repaint Starscream, Alternity Convoy (black) and Alternity Megatron, and HA Barricade.

Every 1 of my displayed figures is in robot mode, with the exception of Cybertron Primus, RoTF Twins, and TFP Deluxe Optimus, with the DotM deluxe trailer hooked up to him. (Looks perfect, much more in scale than the DotM tractor.)

Personally, It depends on my mood and spare time. Most of the time, I display the autobots and decepticons separately in robot mode. I may make special displays (wreckers display, cartoon based bots, game based bots etc.) But It really does depend on my mood.

This for me. Most of them are robots, but a few are in alternate mode, depending on how they look.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Mine are in Bot, but does everyone have them just standing there? I spend loads of time finding a pose that suits them both in terms of Figure limatations(IE Armada Overloard recolour Ultra Magnus, cant do squat with him!) and Character(IE Prime Wheeljack got him looking like he is running all ninja style!)
