    I'm trying to find which of the G1 cars are ideal inside G1 Magnus' car carrier mode. Jazz and other low-lying cars tend to "catch" on the inside, lifted up at odd angles. Trailbreaker looks good, but is otherwise alone (can't fit another in without the first car front jutting out).

    If you have one in vehicle mode, what do you guys have inside Magnus' car carrier trailer?

    UPDATE: Added picture of what it currently looks like.

    Oh man, when I had him as a kid, I always put G2 Black Sideswipe, Jazz and Blurr on him.

    Ultra Magnus was awesome just cuz of that one feature! :)

    I've never found a good combination of two on the bottom. someone always looks odd. and on the top, anyone looks dumb.

    so in all honestly, in the past, I've always just gone for the most absurd looking combinations possible.

    bonus points if you put prime's trailer ontop.

    I think rodimus fits too, but only if he's upside down.

    if you're going for absurd, everything looks good.

    What G1 cars do you have? that might help with suggestions.

    Probably want to leave top-tier characters out, so you can display them on their own, right? that way you're not feeling bad about having jazz or prowl somewhat obscured by magnus' trailer. Inferno and grapple look good in the main section, even if they're alone. they fill up the space nicely. grapple looks better since he stands out more.

    Put Sunstreaker, Hot Rod, Prowl or Jazz on top. No-names on the bottom.

    That is very true

    I'm parking my doubles, so there would be need to sacrifice a well-known character. Reissue Trailbreaker is in there now because Encore Trailerbreaker is on the shelf.

    So far, I have tried Jazz, Hot Rod, Hoist, and Trailbreaker, the four I easily have access to. I think Skids just might do the trick! He's short enough in car mode. I'll give him a try.

    The Omnibots, I think, would be perfect, but alas I don't have doubles of them. I was going for an either "doubles, find life again here!" or "exclusive" feel to this wall of cases. Let me try a Black Ironhide ...

    I dunno about G1 cars specifically as I've not got any out to hand to check, but I did have similar problems trying to find carrier-mates recently when taking photos of a G1 Ultra Magnus. Mostly I went with colours that showed up nicely against the trailer so I avoided red and light blue. I did want to avoid white too but I didn't have too many realistic alt mode figures out so I had to plump for Bay Jazz in his G1 colours, but at the back on the lower level, away from Magnus' cab. Then I stuck in Universe Hot Shot because yellow was a nice contrast, and ROTF Jolt because of his nice dark blue.
    I dunno how well they'd fit but I'd pick G1 with colours in mind too. Bluestreak, Sunstreaker, Hoist, Skids, etc.
