    I am using the new deluxe Top Spin and Twin Twist with MPs. Works for me. When the Takara clones show up I will probably use those too. I'd still like nice 3P MP versions though.

    I sold those Mech Ideas Apex and Geminus for a nice profit the week I heard they were making deluxe sized ones. :D

    Yes. I just want a good representation of a character...the scale isn't as important to me really. I use UW figures and add on kits for my combiners among my MP figures and it works just fine for me.

    TR Topsin and TT, the clones, and leaders Sixshot/Overload in those cats.

    Also, use igear minibots. I prefer my minibots to generally retain their toy designs.

    I certainly will be doing when I complete the NBK Devastator.

    CW Powerglide used to stand with MP Bumblebee until I changed my collection to Ark crew only.

    Only my CHUGsterpiece combiners have survived the great purge (MMC Feral Rex, UT Ordin, Warbotron Bruticus & Computron, TFC Uranos & Prometheus, CW Devastator). Next to my MPs some of them look a bit dated and out of place (like Uranos), some work better as a team of five (like the Feralcons or Ordin). Sizewise I think that Computron and Devy work in all 3 modes.

    I don't have a dedicated MP display anymore (sold most of them) but I have the MP tapes in my Decepticon legends display (specifically Ravage, Frenble and Rumzy).

    I do also sometimes use MP28 Hot Rod in my chugs as Rodimus Prime (anyone wanna buy him from me? :lol  )

    No way! It should be banned and anyone who does it should be fired from the hobby forever! MP's are for elite collectors. Better collectors. We don't even collect CHUG anyway - ewww.

    I’m someone who likes things closer to alt scale. So I have chug carbots together with MP (both official and 3P) seekers, other jetformers, and other figures with huge alt modes.

    Since I don't have separate shelves, I actually mix MP with chugs with figmas and myth cloths etc.
    More specifically, I don't mind making scenes with transformers from different lines if they scale well together.

    This kind of talk will get you killed in my house, haha, fuck no!

    But seriously, you should ask the Giga fans, I've often seen them mixing Giga's product with official masterpiece and masterpieces styled products like FT's!?

    :lol

    I used to, but all that changed with MP-12.

    I've recently started a small army (six) of Titans Return Sharkticons, though, and often place them around my MP Grimlock in dino mode... Guess I can't help a BIT of mixing, here and there! But these are the first CHUG 'bots I've bought in ages, so I doubt this sort of thing will become commonplace again with me. :)

    Ha! I do the same actually (and got 6 also). I feel it's pretty good scale actually for them for looking so small to him, especially in the frame where he just growls at them. I got the KO version of the sharkticons because they have the little antennas (Sharktticons...two t's). Really helps make a neat little setup.

    I mix chug and MP a bit if the scale is comparable. I like to display UW Devastator in combined mode and MMC Feral Cons/UT Terrorcons individually with MP Decepticons.

    I used to... back in the day, when only like... 4 or 5 official mp figures were in existence. Seens like that was only a couple years ago!

    not really. the only two CHUGs i own are artfeather bumblebee as a stand in until we get a real MP bee; and wreck gar because the chug version was so spot on. I do plan to possibly replace him with crash hog. possibly. if anyone is interested in splitting a crash hog/junkion package with me, let me know!

    Years ago, my collection was mostly Classics with a few MP sprinkled in. When I started collecting MPs full-time, there was some overlap in my display. It was admittedly pretty fun.

    CW Constructicons (with upgrades) don’t fit at all with all of the other combiners, but they’re sized just right with MP.
