    In the middle of my collection room I have an ottoman with MP 04 Optimus (with Trailer) and MP 05 Megatron (with stock and silencer add on kit) in alt modes.

    I saw one of those oversized Starscream KOs in person and it was pretty kick ass too!

    I like them because they are recognizable characters who are too big for my regular display ... meaning the display isn't missing anyone and I don't have to get a double.

    I just got in the mail today the oversized sideswipe, what a good looking alt mode. It'll definitely be in the coffee table rotation.

    Carnifex in super-jet mode is a frequent display of mine, it would look especially good with a flight stand.

    I had high hopes of this thread, of glorious photos of people's coffee tables with awesome transformers on top of them as fantastic talking pieces...

    Had.

    I think you might be better with a smaller figure. Possibly with an animal mode.

    Or G1 Soundwave in tape deck mode with a tape inside.

    Not G1 Megatron in gun mode. Don't want to give the wrong impression. That said, I did use him to test the waters with my first fiancee when we were dating.

    She'd come back from a holiday in Scotland where she was from, and was raving about the shooting range her friend brought her too.

    I hadn't mentioned the collecting, though I was only getting back into it at the time. Next day I called over I produced Megatron in gun mode and she was well impressed. Then I transformed him...

    She was a very talented artist with an eye for design and loved him. It's kind of her fault my collection got so big. She actively encouraged me.

    But I digress. Subtlety is the key. Another alternative is Device Label Tigatron. Very nice colour scheme and if your laptop/pc is in the room, you can plug him in and entertain with his onscreen activities.

    Well, if your table is big enough, MPP10 with trailer is more then 50cm of stunning alt mode.

    Of course if your guests are fans, then you can choose more obscure stuff, but with random people major characters work better.

    I would recommend Metroplex. I have him in my display at home and EVERYONE gets impressed when they see the white toddler-sized robot on my shelf

    MP-10 and MP-36 in the final battle movie pose of Optimus doing his double fisted swing punch into Megatron's gut.

    The OS seekers are brilliant but if its a single piece I'd be tempted by one of the following:

    1. MPP-10 with trailer. This is just fantastic and it's huge. The painted details make it look slightly more premium than MP-10 and the size really does make it shine as a stand alone piece.

    2. A Binal-tech figure that shines in alt-mode. My personal favourite is BT-01. The metallic blue on Smokescreen is spellbinding and the yellow of the livery really stands out. An utterly fantastic figure and, for me personally, the gateway figure into me getting back into TFs all those years ago.

    3. G1 Optimus Prime. The original. Everyone recognises him, many people owned the G1 toy or knew someone who did. Bring out the nostalgia in people.

    Well, here's my room :) 

    I posted above about MP 04 and 05 in alt mode since they don't fit in my display, but still represent key characters (MP 08 now also since I have FT Grinder in his spot)
