    I was cleanin' up the ol' display shelves today, and noticed several figures that haven't budged from they're happenin' shelf spot since I got 'em.

    Masterpiece Convoy (duh, it's me :D  ) hasn't moved a gear (except for photo shoots, of course) since I got him in January of '04.

    Others that have been there for a while, and I don't see movin' any time soon:

    -RID Prime
    -RID Scourge
    -ML 6 Wolverine
    -ALL of my Yodas :D 
    -ALL of the BT/BTAs

    There're also two "Best of" shelves of Energon and Cybertron, but I can't bring myself to count 'em just yet.

    So, who hasn't budged from your shelves in a while?

    Merry Christmas, all!!!

    Unless I'm rearranging which is maybe once every couple years... my whole collection stays on the shelves. In particular though, my S16 Megatron reissue hasn't left his shelf or even moved in a long time, even MP Convoy and all my supreme-class figures have relocated since then.

    All of mine are standing at attention on the shelves, save for a handful I have yet to open because I already have another color of the mold open.

    Hmm. I change my display once in awhile, and my tastes have changed drastically. Last year around this time most of my collection display was taken up by Alternators with some RID thrown in. Now it's Beast Wars (US/Jap season 1 & NEO) that is the dominant force... and it shall remain so, as it was always meant to be. The Alternators are practically gone or going, with the exception of Smokescreen and SHOCKWAVE and Mirage.

    Anyway, no matter what has changed there are a few that i always have out:

    - C-1 Convoy (Japanese version of Ultra Optimus Primal)
    - TM Tarantulas
    - TM2 Spittor & RID Slapper
    - Cycle Drone
    - and Alt Smokescreen (gift from Victoria)

    All my Primes are up on permanent display, and most of my 3 pack Minicons (those that weren't packed in with a larger figure) have their own little space.

    Unicron too. Everyone else is expendable... muhuhaha.

    Also have Vaders Force FX saber in a permanent spot as well as a Black Widow Statue.

    My shelves are for the display stuff, the G1s, the Primes/Megatrons, and the BW/BM-related stuff. The true "mainstays" are the happy fun fiddle toys like Classics, BWX Megatron, Energon Grimlock, and a host of favorites.

    All of them remain on permanent display in one room of the house, with the exception of a few Rumble cassettes that I have hiding inside the various clocks in the kitchen and living room :D

    I rarely touch 20th Prime or any of my Alternators - classics get taken down and played with a lot though.

    Usually Vector Prime. He's the only 'anchor' I have. Such a cool toy. I think I might pull out Energon Megatron to swordfight with him soon though. That'd be a neat-looking matchup.

    Ooooooooooh boy. Apologies in advance for anyone who I make jealous with this post, since I tend to keep my really impressive stuff out on display!
    On my "Galvatron table", I've got G1, Armada, Energon, RiD Galvatron (RiD boxed, other three at the front), with Unicron and a Master Sword equipped Primus behind them.
    My entire Beast Wars and Beast Machines collection is going nowhere. Love those guys!
    Cybertron, Energon and Armada all have shelves, but they're due for a move about so for the moment I'll leave them off the count.

    That brings me to the shelf that spans the top of my bed. Since the shelf was built, Overlord, Countdown and G1 Metroplex have been mainstays along with Abominus and Defensor. Then as my collection grew, I've added Trypticon, Victory Saber, Dezaras, and Supreme Cybertron Starscream to that section. My original Targetmaster Hot Rod lives up there as well. A little to the right there's Predaking and Road Caesar, they've both been in that spot for a while now.

    I've got loads of stuff in their boxes that hasn't moved about much either, but that's hardly on display so no point in counting that.

    Mine all stay in one place, although I'll occasionally grab one or two off the shelves to transform when I'm bored at the PC. My collection is all over though. Alternators/G1/Masterpiece Prime in my room, random Classics on my PC desk, GF Prime and Scourge in my DVD shelf, and the rest are on a big bookcase.

    when we ever get an actual house, it'll all be out. but for right now, in the apartment, I've got primus and cyb. metroplex over one door, 4 custom alts over another, all of the classics are out, and the 6 inch tis. I also have a couple of shelves for pixar cars toys, motu statues, and gijoes. so basically, only brand new stuff goes on display.
