    I sure do. I think they look really good together with Die Cast 1:24 cars. Since they never made a HA Sideways, I use an Audi-R8 to represent him on my HA shelf. I've also got a silver SLS-AMG on there to represent soundwave since the real version lacks so much paint. It's also fun to see if your friends can distinguish the transformers from the Models.

    Not HA, but I do have MP-M Bumblebee (the Takara version of Battle Ops Bumblebee) sitting in car mode alongside my 1:18 Movie Car collection. His scale is pretty much perfect. I considered getting a yellow Camaro die-cast model to represent him, but it didn't seem right having a Transformer who couldn't actually transform in there. I like the fact that he stay in car mode but I know he COULD be transformed if need be. :)

    It's funny you bring this up, because I was just contemplating getting a 1:24 scale Camaro that looks like Bumblebee on clearance at Walmart for just this, b/c I can't stand HA Bee. He's $9.88, but I don't know how prices on those things run. Worth it?

    I display my HA's with my Alts, and with 1:24 scaled cars and accessories.

    I used to do the same but I find HA are better displayed in Bot mode. All my Alts/Bts are in car mode while HA, in separate shelf not in my Alt/BT aquarium/display. HA doesn't cut being displayed with my Alts/BTs.

    For 1:24, that sounds about right. I know Wal-Greens has Maisto 1:24, 3 for 13 dollars though, they might have Camaros.

    This is a good idea, haven't thought of it. I might have to get a dark silver/ gray 1:24 Audi R8 as well. Then I'll have to get a 1:24 Ferarri 458 Italia.

    I don't do it for HA toys. They're close to being like Alternators, but they still lack that level of detail and realism that's present on Alternators that really make them blend. Alternators on the other hand...no problem!

    Variation differs greatly between Wal-Greens. One near my house was over stocked with Mustangs and Lamborghinis, but the one a few miles away had (as related to transformers) Pontiac Solstices, Audi R8s, and a Red Camaro.

    It depends. I've got a couple customized HA's (one I did myself, and one I bought) that look good enough to be displayed with the models. While I'll agree a bit more detail would have been welcome, it seems that a really good paint job is enough to put them over.

    I don't necessarily display models cars with my BT/ALT/HA, but I inherited some of my Uncle's Danbury Mint model cars (1:24th). I bought a display case for them because they're very fragile. I will occasionally stick a transformer in car mode in with them. Current my KP Rodimus is in the case with them. BT Skids, BT Meister, Ravage (jaguar), and my custom HA Jazz have been in there at various points as well.

    The case is too small to display any of them (besides maybe ravage) in bot mode.

    I actually stopped by my local Walgreens today to check them out. They had a couple of R8's, one red, and one light bluish, a Solstice, and a few other nice things, but no Camaros unfortunately. =/
