    So...I'm always amazed at my ability to re-arrange figures in order to accomodate one or two more into the display...and just when I think I really have no more room to put up anything else, I manage to find a way...
    You all play Robot Jenga too?

    First, there was Box Tetris...

    I've certainly tried to cram more figures on shelves than they can hold; it never ends well. I just don't have the sleight of hand to pull it off, so everything usually topples.

    I sure do. My classics shelves are so full, I don't think there's anymore room, but, somehow I'll manage to fit any more that come out. Though, I may have to move my Optimus Prime shelf elsewhere.

    Yeah, but you gotta be careful, because if you hit one you end up with robot dominos.

    Oh God, yeah. With DotM Laserbeak's wingspan, I didn't think there was any possible way to fit him on my shelf, but low and behold, I got him in there.

    I sometimes amazes me that I have around 30+ figures on two small shelves on my bookcase.

    I haven't decided if this is just a skill aquired through collecting, or a super power.

    I just got voyager strafe, so when I find the time I will have to completely redo my autobots, since strafe needs to be in the back so not to hide my deluxes.

    There's always room for one more, and when there isn't, there's always space somewhere else.

    I'm at the point where I can no longer do this. Now I play "robot dog pile" on a small desk next to my bed with the figures I don't particularly like. That leaves plenty of room for the good figures.

    Do it all the time.

    I'm going to have to take out my Universe Prowl, Smokescreen, and Bluestreak and replace them with the Henkei versions I just finally picked up. Likely going to be a sweaty and nail-biting ordeal.

    All the time. Except that on my Decepticon side I'm literally beginning to lose ground.

    I don't think one can own Alternators toys without having played this game at least once.
