    How do you organize the transformers in your collection? by faction, name, color, or is it just random?

    Series, Season, Faction, and Personal faves. Colour comes in last but is very important. I bought a white Universe 2.0 Leo Prime and never did display it with my other Primes. I only put the red and blue version after I found one.

    Classics? Factions are put together, but generally splayed out everywhere. Everything else? By series all in one spot together.

    I used to do it by series order, G1 to Animated but now I'm getting lazy with it. I organize my collection from the most recently bought to the oldest.

    My Classic-verse is dived by faction first and then grouped in sub-factions (Team Ark, Team Nemesis, G2 Decepticon Syndicate, Starscreams' Predacons, Lightning Strike Coalition, Mayhem Attack Squad, etc.)

    I usually divide it by series\teams or things that fit together.

    It's mostly the masterpiece toys hanging around with alternity bumblebee and megatron, few Prime figures on their own, WFC Megs and Prime with Cybertron Primus and so on.

    before I moved, I had them split by faction well, good vs evil. 3 shelves a piece, and big guys on top and everything else just up there..

    Now they are all in boxes since I moved until I get my bookshelves...

    Once I get my shelves it will be good vs evil then.. by series..

    Classic
    Rid
    Prime
    Movie verse
    Beast wars

    still not sure which series will be on which selves but..

    I organize the collection by toy line in chronological order (G1,G2,Beast Wars, Beast Machines, etc.) and then each line is organized by size (micro, mini, scout, deluxe, etc.).

    Behind my big plasma tv i have all the chug stuff (minus WFC since i don't count those) misb hanging on the wall with push pins. Looks cool but since we haven't had any of those in a while I'm definitely looking forward to filling in the white spaces on the wall.

    I have two bookcases with four shelves each. Bookcase on the left is autobots, on the right is decepticons. G1 Season 1 on top, then 2, then 3/4, then "sir not appearing in this film" (aka guys from comics or post-cancellation Japanese shows).

    Separated by line/aesthetic first. Three display cases for the Classiverse stuff, one for my current G1s, and a shelf each in a display for G1 Robot Heroes, WFC/FOC, G1 Classiverse Legends type things, and lastly my hodgepodge shelf of molds I like from lines I don't like.

    THEN I separate by faction, 'Bots on my left, 'Cons on my right. And then the G1 and Classiverse are separated by seasons, terminating in the bottom shelves for the ones that didn't appear in any animated fiction.

    I organize by year for the ones from 1984-2001, then sub organize by good guy/bad guy and then alphabetically. Everything after 2001 is organized by group (Alts, Movies, Animated, etc) and split into Autobot/Decepticon as well.
