    Have you never got a figure of a certain character for your display and instead use another figure of that certain character or a similar one to fill in for that figure you missed? I use Classics deluxe Prime to fill in for voyager Classics Optimus.

    When you see someone saying "stand-in" that's what they're talking about.

    Like using Cybertron Metroplex as a stand-in for Fortress Maximus.

    Yeah... Prime as a stand in for, er, Prime doesn't really count.


    On the other hand, pretending one character is another just doesn't work for me.

    I'm planning on making Prime Wheeljack into Downshift.

    Thanks to the fan mode thread, Animated Lugnut is now a stand in for G1/classics Scorponok. Sounds nuts but he looks great

    ROTF Armorhide is totally a stand-in for the Renegade GoBot Geeper Creeper on my shelf.

    Also, Cyberfire Bumblebee as movieverse Bugbite, DOTM Icepick as Nightbird, and DOTM Reverb as Vibes.

    That reminds me, what happened to the fan-mode thread? I can't find it or maybe I'm blind.
