    Okay, strange sounding topic opening... but I was rifling through my bins of Tfs, and decided to do something with them, and made some little displays.. "oh yawn." you might say... well i was thinking of who to put up with my classics. My classics shelves are a tad bit barren since I'm lacking a few, but I found that some of my other series figs look pretty darn good with the classics.

    Right now I've got Optimus(Classics) with BumbleBee and Mirage flanking him with BB holding up the pistol from Hightower's (RiD) cockpit. Next to them Rodimus is next to Energon Arcee. Arcee ends up looking a lot like BB's little sister, and it's not in a bad way.

    Ontop of my comp Tower, I have Megatron (Classics) with Starscream (Classics) infront of him, slightly turned with his arm outstretched. Next to SS is Astrotrain (Classics) and Soundwave(Cybertron). Infront of them all are the Red and Yellow Rumble from Cybertron and Battle Ravage from Energon in front.. almost like Ravage and Frenzy/Rumble. behind them all on Meg's left side is Energon Shockblast. Rhis was inspired by a pic someone had done in Toyark a while back I think.


    Pics as soon as I get my Camera back from my friend... :( 



    Are there other TFs people put with their Classics that seem to just fit really well?

    Only one Classic at the moment, but when I get some display space, I fully intend to include Cybertron Smokescreen and Soundwave, and Energon Shockblast, with them. I haven't decided what other figures, if any, will get "promoted" to Classics duty.

    I haven't put them on display yet, but when I do they'll be by themselves - I like to keep the lines separate (although I do group 20th Anny Prime with Alternators).

    Mine will be grouped with anybody with a good probable looking alt mode, and an articulated bot mode. E Towline will in with them, along with the Wheeljacks and Landmines from both Energon and Cybertron. The Cybertron Defense team will be in there, along with normal Red Alert and Smokescreen.

    My Decepticons have a number of guys from Cybertron and Energon as well. Cyb Thundercracker and Slugslinger will be helping to flesh out the air force, while Cyb Mudflap and E Dreadwing provide more larger 'Cons. Little E Megs will be standing in for Galvatron. I also want to get Ti Soundwave, to go with them. I would have gone with the reissue, but Hasbro screwed it up.

    I also plan to have some of the movie toys in with them, as long as the bot modes are at least as good as that Blackout proto.

    Of the eight Classics I have only three aren't in another themed display like my Prime or "tron shelf. Those three are Bumblebee,Astrotrain, and Mirage. I have displayed with them Titanium Jetfire, Cybertron Downshift, the two Cybertron Crosswises, and Cybertron Evac and Cd Scattershot in the back mostly because I didn't have another place for them. Anyway, the deluxe sized ones i mentioned look great with the Classics.

    Bowl: Ouch! Hurts to look at. Also dude, Sesame Street Figures?

    On topic: I need a new folding shelf for the Classics, they will have their own space. As will the SWTFs.

    My Classics are on my desk at work, to keep me sane and to prevent me from murdering anybody and burying the body in a shallow grave.

    ... And as far as the authorities know, it's worked!

    My band wrote a song called Shallow grave. But I give my classics a shelf of their own.
