    Just like the titles reads.

    I answered "both" because I mainly display my Transformers but, have a couple of extras of a few Transformers that I like to "fiddle" with.

    I don't necessarily play with them to the point where I make them interact with each other with "voices" and "pew...pew...pew" noises. (Although there's nothing wrong with that either. LOL) :) 

    So do you play with them, display them, or both?

    I have a 5 year old, so most of mine are displayed. His get played with. I should really keep count of how many times a day I hear "Daddy, can you turn this into the car/tank/jet??"

    My daughter and I 'play' with them. With each new purchase I get, she needs to inspect them and give them her approval. Then at some point, she grabs them off the shelf and we play.

    Edit: I also like that from the main forum page, this thread comes up as "Do you play with your..."

    Depends on your deffinition of "playing".
    Currently have my Prime toys lined up on top of my desktop rig.
    I fiddle with them, pose them and transform them.

    The rest of my collection is on display in a seperate room.

    So.. I quess thats a "both"? :D

    I mostly just display my figures, occasionally transforming them from one mode to the other. Since I've gotten into Cyberverse, though, I actually have been playing with them a little again. It's so hard not to with cool little toys like that.

    Both. I have a decent sized wall display where they all sit, but I pull them down all down to transform them every so often. It's kinda like having a giant display full of brain teasers.

    Mostly just display. I usually fiddle with them most of the time, though, and at college I've got about 8 various figures to keep around as desk toys.

    Both. The other day I found myself playing around with my TF Animated Grimlock after pulling him out of my Transformers bin (most are in a plastic container in my room). I have a feeling that when I can manage to find the Prime Commanders I'll be doing a lot of that.

    Toys are meant to be played with, so I play with them.

    I'd say both.

    At times when I take one down to clean I'll make the firing noise or press the electronics button.

    Mostly display, with some fiddling/posing/transforming inbetween.

    I'm usually a bit paranoid about wear & tear so I buy duplicates
    to toy around with.
