    Anyone know of a good figure line scaled to Alternators. I figure 1:24 of 6' is 3 inches, but 3 inch action figures are surprisingly hard to come by. Any suggestions? What do you guys use?

    Someone suggested MASK figures the other day. Haven't tried it myself, but worth a shot.

    Sadly given the 1:24 scale not many toys fit the seat.

    GIJoes are too big as are Micronman toys. But their are toys called Micro Sisters based on Microman toys but shorter they can just about fit in with out any of their accessory's but even then its a bit of a squeeze

    I really like minimates for it. They take a very special taste, but fit well and because they are so poppable and swappable you can make a lot of real easy customs.

    Plus, it is really cool having magneto and megatron fighting the autobots, only to be saved by batman and robin. I left them posed at work - ill bring Supes and Prime back next week to take pics. Supes looks cool posed on MP Prime's shoulder. You can also do some army building with the Platoon and Punisher sets. Recreate the Marvel Civil War with a What If? the Autobots existed and split their decisions. Grimlock Binal with Punisher riding shotgun is just cool.

    Capt America riding on top of Hotrod in a dramatic roof pose - accelerating towards Ironman and Prime...

    Black Cat atop the black Voltron lion, with the others in a V behind - preparing to charge after Ravage and Catwoman!

    You can have real fun just posing these imaginary battles

    Dude, what the hell job do you have? And I haven't wanted to play transformers this much since I was 10.

    How big are mini-mates though? I thought they were about 2 inches, kinda small for alternators, eh? Maybe some picks would convince me...

    I was hoping to find something easy to get today, but thanks for ideas.

    I use M.A.S.K. toys.They really don't fit in many(if any) very good.There isn't any floorboard room in them.They just look cool standing next to them.

    I don't think the style would match, but stikfas are 3 inches. and I saw some really small 2-3 inch (if im remembering correctly they could be bigger idk) wrestler figures that have a lot of posability at walmart, if you looked around you could prob find one of them that looks like a civilian that would be riding around in a nice car like the gtr or 370z. also aren't the new marvel figs really small?

    really the only figures that work as drivers are the over sexualized Kiss Players girls. I have the Kiss Players Autorooper and as a driver the girl does not look that bad.
