    I'm a masterpiece / 3rd party masterpiece collector and most of my figures are in detolfs, but in setting up my man cave I'd like to put one figure in ALT mode in the center of the coffee table, as sort of a discussion piece. Thinking along the lines of what I collect, what would you recommend/have displayed in this scenario? I was initially thinking an Oversized Seeker.

    Alternators molds are great for this! Especially if you have the metal Binaltech ones... GT40 Mirage is on one of my shelves in alt. mode, & people who don't see the Autobot symbol think it's just a great car model.

    They're also pretty cheap on eBay now. If you get one of the better car molds it's a really fun focal/talking point, everyone always stops & admires it.

    How about something that might get a guest to open up the conversation. Like a prop of the Matrix, or movie allspark cube......

    I think l am going to make a project out of my Dinobot shelf. I was thinking of adding foliage and landscape and making the shelf Dinobot Island. MPs in the back, Generations/PotP in the middle, and PCC and Minicons in the front

    Whatever you choose, make sure you stick to your decision about just one.
    Because as soon as you think "well, a second one would be nice", you're screwed. Royally, totally screwed.

    If your aim is to encourage conversation, it helps to have something recognizable to non-fans, like OP, Grimlock, maybe Soundwave. But also, keep in mind that admiration/conversation is usually followed by touching/fiddling (;) ). So make sure it's a figure you don't mind people messing around with.

    Love the idea of one of the real-life objects in the real world.
    Soundwave. Perceptor. Reflector. Megatron.
    But probably Soundwave.
