    So, the clubs sketch of PCP got me thinking. Where do you place your spies? Animated Shockwave was usually on my Decepticon shelf. But what about Sideways (armada and cybertron), g1 pcp and Doubledealer?

    Where are they usually on your shelves? With their true allegiance? Or undercover?

    The only spies I have in my collection (I think) are Sideways and Ani Shockwave. I consider them as decepticons in my collection.

    I have both versions of Animated Shockwave, so I keep the gray one in longarm prime mode with the autobots, and the purple one in shockwave mode with the decepticons

    I consider purple Ani Shockwave and Cybertron Sideways to both be Decepticons, but my shelves are all clusterf***ed battlegrounds, so they don't usually have 'sides', just robots and chaos. :) 

    Shockwave I'll sometimes transform half way in between his Longarm and Shockwave modes (one arm without the red bar, one leg flipped differently and the faction symbol on it's side) and call him Longwave. If I do that, I'll usually show him beating up a smaller bot from both sides. I consider 'Longwave' to be his "I'ma crazy and I'ma kill everyone" mode. :)

    One reason I was so excited when purple Animated Shockwave was announced was that it meant I could display him with 'Cons while keeping grey Longarm with the 'Bots. Which is where they both currently are.

    I don't have a G1 Punch/Counterpunch.... I'm not really sure where I would display him, haven't had to decide yet. I think I may actually buy two of the TFCC version, though, just to have both robot modes on display.

    Taking it a step further, I actually often place transparent Mirage figures on my Decepticon shelves. It started with BT Mirage... I had simply run out of room in my Autobot Alt/BT display at one point, so I realized I could buy myself some room by shifting him over to the 'Cons. 'Cause, you know, he's invisible.... they don't know he's there. :)  I've continued the practice with other transparent Mirages.

    i display them with who they are truly loyal to, animated shockwave goes with cons cause even when he is in his longarm mode, hes still shockwave. as for punch/counterpunch whoever hes truly alligned with, is he a con with a bot disguise or a bot with a con disguise?

    While I like to put spies with their actual faction, I tend to base it on which shelf has more room. If their actual faction has more room, they go there. If the other faction has more room, they go undercover. When Club-exclusive Punch/Counterpunch comes out, he'll probably be going in with my Classics Decepticons, since there's more room.

    In the case of Animated Shockwave, I have both versions, so grey "Longarm Prime" stays with the Elite Guard Autobots, while purple Shockwave is with the Decepticons.
