    I normally don't... except for MMC's Kultur. He's hanging out with my Masterpiece Decepticons, and I think he works. Yeah, he's a tad smaller, but still larger than most Autobots... which works for me, given his origins.

    I think he works.

    Any awesome voyager-ish car bots are fair game for my MP-scaled collection. I'll be adding MMC's Drift, Wing, Deadlock, and Nitro for sure.

    My Chug figures have to enter through a separate door at the side of the building and take the back seats on the bus. One drop rule applies.

    But seriously, they're all mixed in together. With Legends and other stuff too. I think I have MMC Inferno, TT Grapple, Platinum Edition Ultra Magnus and DX9's Toufold next to their Freeman and a Figma Tracer. There's a Spider-Man in there somewhere too. It's like the last days of Rome on my desk here.

    I don’t mix and match.

    Well, it depends I suppose. I wouldn’t put IDW/voyager/“chug” stuff with my legends or MP’s.

    I do have the TFM (IDW) Stunticons with my voyager/IDW figures. They’re all voyager sized and built about the same (quality/materials) as many of MMC’s figures to boot (save for MM who stays in perpetual alt mode).

    I will put GCreations Prowl with my voyager figures as well.

    Generations Metroplex and Generations/CW Sky-Lynx with my legends figures.

    I have CW Devy hanging out with my MP 'cons. If I didn't have Wreckers MMCs Overlord would be with my MP collection, as well.

    CW Devastator is on the Decepticons Masterpiece shelf (maybe that oversize Gravity Builder might take his place one day?). Classics Bumblebee is on the Autobots one (I have the Masterpiece Bumblebee but the classics one looks much better and they're pretty much the same size).

    I think that Unite Warriors Devastator fits better with MP than with CHUG.

    Like a 3rd world dictator I purged my collection of CHUGS. A figure needs to be of masterpiece pedigree for me.

    Yeah, if you want a cartoon Devastator and don't care about him not being 3 feet tall, he's your guy.

    It's killing me how close you have him to the edge of that shelf.

    As someone once wrote on these forums:

    you have fans have a masterpiece display which contains the definitive versions of the characters; other have a definitive Transformers display that have some Masterpiece TF's.

    I fall in the latter. Official MP, 3rd party MP, official CHUG and 3rd party CHUG all displayed together. I just want a good figure of characters that are important to me. Sometimes MP is the best, sometimes Chug style.

    No, because I don't own any chugs in the first place. I am super picky as well. Something needs to fit with the MP aesthetic and build quality to get onto the MP shelf.
