if you put him in the biscuit tin, you might have to eat all the biscuits in there first. I'll go and check my biscuit tin, and see if I have room for him.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I have a "Cybertron Mode" shelf. For the most part, if a figure ONLY has a Cybertron mold, like (say) Shockwave, he's in the main shelf. But all the rest go here. On the other hand, this means I have three "Cybertron Mode" Optimus Primes - Titanium War Within, War For Cybertron, and now Fall Of Cybertron...

I have him with my Classics. I see him as a pre-Earth Prime, basically.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I can see that cybertron mode stuff, yeah. I already have United WFC Mgatron, since he was sol as Cybertron mode Megatron, I just naturally put him in with the Generations stuff.

What's with all the hate on this guy anyway?

He's smaller, blockier and simpler to transform than his predecessor. It's not a problem for me, but most people might see it as a step down, especially since FoC (so far) seems to be superior to WfC in every way. The toy just simply fails.

I don't hate the figure, I just think he would look great in the kitchen!

I second that. I saw one in person, I laughed. Not a hearty chuckle, but a sad, reflective one on what TF's have become.

That's just evil.

I don't think this figure should be ridiculed for it's size, as it's not a flaw in this figure, but more a symptom of what's going on in general. Where this Prime the same size as a regular deluxe, I don't think it would have been that much of a hatemagnet.

Size IS important. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Looks like you need to start a collection of OPs and Megs that don't fit it elsewhere. That's where my 07 movie OP and Megs are, as well as movie protoform, revoltech and Hybrid Style. There's also that most horrible of shelves: the shelf where TFs go that don't fit with anything.

And it's just an ugly design. It looks like it was designed by an intern or based on some little kid's sketch or something.

Ah, the shelf of misfit toys. In my house, that's the movie line of toys - that slow, shuffling conga line into some other series. Except DOTM Megatron and Laserbeak, because they're badass.
