    a friend asked me what TF would look good in his display, and his collection is a big mashup of 3 and 3/4 inch Marvel, DC and GIJoe figures... anyone got any suggestions at all? i can't really think of anything... maybe MP Prime... and he wants it to stay in vehicle mode, so fitting inside isn't a huge deal... but he's trying to avoid tanks and jets... and anything super rare or high priced... any suggestions?

    It's a tank, but not in this mode.

    How about ultra class Onslaught?

    Maybe something from the Alternators/Binaltech line?

    Leader Brawl from Movie 1 or G2 Megatron could work. Would be undersized compared to GI Joe but closer than many other TFs.

    Several of the TF motorcycles might be in scale. TFA Prowl, Movie Arcees/Chromia, etc.

    Ricochet, Rollbar, Silverstreak, Smokescreen, Sideswipe, or Skids are some of the most common Transformers Alternators Toys to find afford ably
    (try the tfw junkion exchange)

    They look great in GIJOE and Marvel Universe Displays I've seen.
    Alternators look really sharp in both modes.

    Alternators Hound, so practical for G.I. Joe and he's a frickin Jeep! Plus not a bad vehicle for a Wolverine.

    In vehicle mode, nothing would "fit" with 3.75" figures.

    U2 Onslaught & any of the various motorcycles were my initial thoughts (An.Prowl, Oilslick, Cyb. Lugnutz/repaints, ROTF cycle fem-bots, HFTD Brimstone, or even back to the G2 Laser Cycles & their repaints)

    Wants to avoid tanks/jets, well then what about beasts? Is MP Grimlock too high-priced? U2 Dinobot? "Realistic" BW beasts or BW Transmetals?

    If Alternators & HA are suggestions, then maybe movie Leader Prime too?

    Best recommendation for scale that I can think of is one of the bigger movie Bumblebees.

    so, MrSoundwaveGuy hooked me up with some pics with BB... but now I wonder if anyone has any GIJOE/Marvel/DC figures in shots with Leader Starscream...

    any help?

    also, anyone go a figure or two on a recent motorcycle TF?

    That's right. Sorry, I misspoke. Most of the motorcycles are perfect.

    No car, truck, tank or plane, etc. is in scale with the 3.75" figures.
