    There are a lot of characters who never make it on to the shows or the movies, but still retain something memorable in either their bio or their mold.

    Is there a group of these guys forming their own group of Decepticons or Autobots on your shelf somewhere? Have you come up with your own fiction that places them together?

    I just bought Hailstorm (I call him Mindset, since he's green and a Decepticon and Hailstorm is suppose to be an Autobot and blue) and his short stature reminded me a lot of Dirt Boss from TFA. His placement kind of gravitated towards ROTF Dirge and HFTD Jetblade. Eventually I just started to imagine them as a clique with in the Decepticon ranks and Mindset is their boss.

    I did the same thing with ROTF Deadlift and ROTF Long Haul. Their alt-modes compliment each other since they both transform into vehicles that carry and transport stuff. My imagination just turned them into grumpy BFFs who have to carry everyone's stuff.

    ROTF Hoist and NEST Brawn.

    Put them side by side.
    You'll see what I mean.

    Here is but one of my shelves which I classify as the Autobot Rescue Force:

    Both Movie 1 Voyager Ratchets, Universe Prowl, Inferno, Red Alert, Movie Evac, Mach Alert, Titanium Hot Zone, Universe Blades, Cybertron Red Alert (aka First Aid), Botcon Streetstar, G1 Groove. The last five are "my" modern day Protectobots and really look good together. Ran out of room so G1 Red Alert and Inferno stay in GWonderland.

    Since there's way too many odd cluques on my shelves I'll just answer 'yes I do' and not go into detail

    that is a great answer LOL. but i feel the same. i tend to keep "main" characters together, and then i have others that may not have really played a big role or even been in the movie or shows kinda close(customs kinda fit into that category as well)

    I'm a line-purist. The OCD in me takes over and I can't have some vagina-faced movie figure mixing in with my big-chined Animated guys who mingle with my blocky G1 figures. So my shelves have classic lines ups.

    My fireplace has MP Prime, Alt Wheeljack, Alt Jazz, and Binaltech Silverstreak. On the other side is ML Soundwave, MP Megatron, G1 Insecticons, some cassettebots, and Alt Shockwave.

    I think Animated Swindle and Soundwave look good together. Like a comedy duo - (Serious, humorless monotone guy and Used car salesman that won't ever shut up)
