    I do. I received Legends Gold Bumblebee (Goldbug) along with the Legends Wheelie I bid on. Since I've been looking for a mascot for my work station, I decided to keep Goldbug in the office. Do any of you bring your TF's to work?

    I keep some cyberverse close to my monitor so I can fiddle with them when I get the urge to punch a wall.

    I brought a Cyberverse Optimus Prime and have it on my desk. Kills time when things are slow.

    Shups.

    I have a custom painted DOTM Deluxe Barricade (in all black with silver rims) and Starscream (in F-22A gray camo) at work on the desk in my office, along with two Legends class Bayverse Starscreams (both camo and tattoo versions) and two Legends class G1 Starscreams (one in bot and one in jet mode). I drive an all black Mustang so I keep Barricade in alt mode for that, and Starscream because he's my favorite character and he's a jet-former (and I'm in the USAF).

    I'd bring my MP-03 Greenscream to the office but he's a bit too big and I'm paranoid he might get stolen given his price point. Maybe when I get my own personal office (I currently share an office with two civilians) with a glass display case (and a lock) I'll bring him to work for display.

    And just recently I brought in RTS Legends Optimus Prime and Titanium Blackout to the office. I'm thinking about taking DOTM Deluxe Air Raid and Cyberverse Powerglide, Blackout, and Hatchet too given they're all aerial military vehicles.

    No, to be honest I think any toys on my desk might prove to be too great a distraction.

    I did however, at her request, get my girlfriend a legends prowl a while back because the IT guy in her work had named all the workstations in her department after autobots, and hers was named prowl.

    Yes. I'm a teacher and I have a corner with leader prime, Leader starscream, and busts of iron hide, prowl, and devastator. I also have a few posters and signed comic images.

    I have the new Powerglide on my desk. A colonial viper as well. A cylon raider is behind me on the bookcase. A few others. I need to keep it discreet. I am a supervisor after all. ;0

    You bet! Right now revoltech Megatron, Starscream, and Rodimus are on my desk. My old job (as of 2 years ago) had most classics / generations figure on my desk and it was actually getting crowded. My new job I don't quite trust the people around me so I only brought a few

    I could but there are shady night shift workers here who like steal random shit all the time. I remember a coworker who had family photos stolen off her desk. :lol  That shits creepy.

    So no, I keep my stuff at home so I know where it is at all times.

    I have a few on my desk at work. My original intention was to switch them out every once in awhile to make my office more exciting. Well I've had the same ones here for about a year now. Some even longer. They at least make for decent conversation starters.

    Totally, I have revoltech Megatron and Optimus set up on a bookshelf, along with an Enterprise D. I also had Robot Masters G1 Prime up there for a bit. Also have the boxed SDCC Ultimate Prime on display from last year. Good stuff.
