    For the life of me I cant find a pic of these two. Im trying to gauge how they will look together on my shelf, any help is much appreciated.

    edit: also looking for MP10 with any of the Igear Coneheads.

    FP CC is way too small to work with MP-10. He's even a hair shorter than PP01 Faith Leader (who himself is the same height as the original MP Seeker mold, if that tells you anything). CC and Faith Leader together are passable (if you subscribe to the theory that UM and OP are of similar height and stature).

    fascinating. ive never considered faith leader, although i might go for it with the igear anime head.
    Still wanna see Mp 10 + CC though, and really hoping they announce the US release at botcon.

    As requested.

    FP City Commander with MP-10 Convoy and MP-08 Grimlock.

    FP City Commander with PP01 Faith Leader and MP-08 Grimlock. (Personally, I think this scale works best in a mixed Classics display.)

    And just for the lulz, Prime Time. XD

    incredibly helpful, and a very nice collection. I think i agree that Faith Leader works best, assuming grimlock still fits the bill in altmode which is how i display him.
    ugh, i have mp01 already, and am surely getting mp10 at US release. do i really need three primes by getting faith leader too?

    ^ I can see that being a tough question. As someone who's looking at getting MP 10 as well, and seeing how PP01 scales with Grim makes it difficult. Not to mention PP01's rifle looks much better than MP 10's. Heck, I would almost buy the Faith Leader just to have that rifle for MP 10.

    Faith Leader's P-38 is also in great scale with the Masterpiece seeker mold:

    And there's also the rodimus problem...he's gonna look huge next to a faith leader.
    I see the current item on igear is the "simplified" version or whatever. Is that one missing items like the gun/accessories?

    thank you, i clearly hadnt read thoroughly.

    it seems like we cant win. so eventually ill have 3 optimuses (optimi?) with separate displays:
    mp10/hot rod;
    FL/CC/Grimlock and maybe other classics;
    and i guess i can keep Mp-01 with MP Megs, who i detest.

    The only way this will work...if a real MP UM with a trailer combine, a scale down Roddy...Faith Leader and MP Grimlock...

    Thanks, hope this helps. I find Faith Leader to be a perfect fit for Classics and he's my default go-to Optimus Prime to display with City Commander and MP Grimlock in bot mode (I usually don't display in alt mode anyway). MP-10 I keep on a separate shelf and plan to display with MP-11 (once I ship my BBTS PoL and get him in-hand, that is). MP-10 is more my take-down-and-fiddle-with Optimus Prime, while Faith Leader gets to stay posed up with the rest of my Classics, which works out fine for me.

    As for MP-09 or MP Hot Rod, luckily I hate the character and don't bother with his toys, so I have no conflict with displaying him with my other stuff at all. XD A larger MP Ultra Magnus would be nice so I can relegate FP CC to my Wreckers display.
