    Would you be able to put a * next to the Henkei versions that you use? Its obvious on Powerglide, but not some of the others. I'm always interested in the fandom's preference.

    No Blurr? Roadbuster? Ratbat? Huffer? Alpha Trion?

    I'm putting Henkei Hot Shot with my Universe Autobot G1 guys. He wasn't on the Ark crew because he was too annoying. Prime sent him to look for Sunstorm and they split for Earth.

    well the only Henkei i have is Powerglide...if you even wanna call him a Henkei, Technically he is a Japanese USA edition. he comes in american packaging with a sticker and has no chrome. I plan on getting Dinobot for the show accurate colors and Hot Shot just for the guns which i will put on my Universe Hot Shot.

    nope nope nope nope and nope. im assuming you mean animated Blurr? he stays in animated.the rest are repaints from other lines which i really dont care for. well except Trion hes a repaint with a remolded head he fits into the same catagory as Leo Prime.

    I'm not in the mood to type out everyone's name right now, but I have a couple pictures to get a good idea of what I've got.

    Autobots
    [​IMG]

    Decepticons
    [​IMG]

    Megatron, Cyclonus, Thundercracker, and Ratchet so far are my Henkeis on display. I'll be getting an Astrotrain soon, maybe. But I do also have th Universe Cyclonus playing the part of "His Armada."

    I keep Classics Starscream on display with the rest, and have two Universe versions in my growing "shrine" (one alt, one bot).

    I've all out passed on several figures: the repainted voyagers, lame non-combiner ultras, no-name Rainmaker, and just several that are out of my price range like BotCon figures. Think I might pick up a Drap Strip soon though, depending on finances.

    But yeah, that's what I've got.

    I like how the two sides are charging at each other in your pics. I was thinking of doing something similar once I have more shelf space.

    That was a "Stone Award" I got back in 7th Grade. It says "The Stone, First Sem. 1996" and my old last name (changed my middle and last name at 17). I got it for bringing my GPA from an 0.2 to a 2.2 in one quarter LOL.

    Thanks. I love it. My only problem is that the Autobot side is getting low on space. I'm kind of reduced to crowding them up and such. But hopefully thing'll even out once I finish some custom 'Cons.

    I'm not typing mine out either.... but suffice it to say, when it's actually displyed (down for basement remodel), I have all figures released under the Classics 1.0 banner, as well as all of the 2.0 Classics and Botcon 2007 figures. Then I add in Big Daddy, Jolt, Divebomb, Grindcore, Fracture, Crankcase, Breakaway (these guys were all supposed to be Classics anyway, but Wal-Mart wanted movie packaging according to Hasbro) Ratbat, Roadbuster, and soon to be Superion and Bruticus, Countdown and Darkwind, and hopefully Botcon Leozack, Skyquake, and Thunderclash. Oh, and of course Overkill and Drag Strip.

    I meant Cybertron Blurr. Armada mold with the G1 head. He looks good with Classics, every bit as good as Alpha Trion does.

    I don't really have a Universe per-se, but I'm kinda going for a post-movie display with my Classics/Universe collection now, so I've avoided alot of the characters who died (gonna get Ratchet and Ironhide though) and I plan to get alot of obscure characters to boost ranks (Treadbolt, Overload etc). Fracture has also been welcomed in Galvatron's ranks.

    That's cool, glad you are enjoying your display. Sounds nice!

    Are you planning to geet Countdown and Darkwind?
    I know Brawn died in the movie but I'd still recommend the Legends version of him, it's a fantastic little toy.

    All my Universe figures are Henkei versions. But I do have and use Classics Devastator, USA Edition Onslaught, Music Label Soundwave, and Botcon Jazz for my classics display.

    I also put Henkei Bumblebee with my MP/Alt display and use G1 Legends Bumblebee with my other Classics.
