    Robot mode for the most part. Only one in alt mode I can think of is Classics Overkill.

    I always have some in each mode, but they are primarily in bot mode.

    I do both. Looks especially nice when you have one of each or multiples of each toy.

    Primarily bot mode, but with the amount of movie toys I have gotten in the past few years, I like to have duplicates/2nd molds to display in Alt mode for display purposes. I have been buying most of the United figures (and Henkei as I can pick them up here and there) in addition to their classic counterparts and display one in Bot, one in Alt mode. Have a few MP Rodimus to display in all modes, and a MP Grimlock in each mode. I don't really play with my toys, so the choice kind of boils down to how it will look in the display (but usually only gets an Alt mode display if I have multiples).

    I try to mix it up, but I generally keep them displayed in bot mode. With the exception of Alternators - I generally keep them in alt mode all the time.

    But when it comes to stuff like Masterpieces & Classics, I buy doubles (and triples when necessary) to display them in both bot & alt modes simultaneously.

    About 85-90% of my collection is displayed in robot mode and the rest are put in their alternate mode due to I not liking their robot modes.
