    I use all my Vehicons from Universe and BM as Unicronians, so they go on that shelf. My Maximals from Universe/BM/BW all go on a little secluded corner of a shelf (I don't have many).

    Most of my Universe Figures are still sealed, but I want to open them, not sure how I'll display them yet.

    OHhhh the old univers witht he neon repaints. The only figure I bought from that line, if I am not mistaken, is the repaint of Night Slash Cheetor. He is on my BM shelf because he is the most show accurate of all BM Cheetors

    Depthcharge, Frostbite and Nemesis Prime some of my favorites!
    I remember all the hype around the Nemesis Prime figure when it was first released. I wonder if anyone cares about him anymore.

    I think people do, as long as they're a fan of the Beast Era. He's a good alternative if someone can't afford a Black Big Convoy version of that mold.

    I display my Universe figures (Beast Era and otherwise) but they're kind of spread around since I go by characters and groups...right now some of them are stuck in generic Autobot/Maximal and Decepticon/Predacon shelves I have going for non-G1 characters. When I get more room most of them will stay there since I've repurposed some of them.

    I skipped most of the Universe 1.0 line and have no regrets about doing so. I got Nemesis Prime, Stockade/Magna Stampede... not many more. Still have the original versions of most of them so didn't see a point to the garish recolors.

    Oddly enough, and I'm sure I'll have the last popular answer, I put them with my AEC figures.

    It all started because the club made King Atlas the leader of Combatron, the Apocalypse Planet. Whirl was his second in command. So I made Nemesis Strika and Blastcharge the main baddies from Combatron.

    So the next thing you know, we have:

    Combatron

    King Atlas
    Whirl
    Nemesis Strika
    Blastcharge
    Stockade
    Fireflight

    Velocitron

    Air Raid

    Earth

    Space Case
    Wind Sheer

    Animatros

    Magna Stampede
    Frostbite
    Longhorn


    NS Cheetor became a new body for Armada Cheetor
    Universe MW Soundwave became Cybertron Soundwave's original body before Unicron changed him.

    I think that's it...

    :lol  I had the entire line and aside from a few keepers the rest were all sold off in my sales thread. I just sold the last one a few weeks ago. I think the only ones I kept were the Build team repaints and Nemesis Prime.

    It's the only US release of the Big Convoy mold and it's in a black deco, I think the answer is yes. Though from what I've seen on ebay, the Korean release of the Big Convoy mold is relatively inexpensive.

    I have all my Beast Wars/ Beast Machines/ Universe 1 beasts together, and my BM/ Universe 1 Vehicons lumped in with my RiD shelf. It's kind of a hodge podge but it works for me.

    I've been doing something similar. Not necessarily with Universe figures, but taking Cybertron's multi-planet setup and applying it to my Classics display as a way to justify all the Unicron Trilogy and other guys I have up there. I'm still trying to fine tune where everyone goes, but I like playing around with the diplay

    Well,since i used own a Universe 1.0 Ratchet (that R.I.D X-Brawn Repaint) i woulda have re purposed him as part of a Fire Defence Team,Consisting of Him,that R.I.D Prowl Repaint (Which Regreted not buying,But i might Repurpouse "Her" As Flashpoint),Classics 2.0 Inferno,Generations Red Alert (which i happily own) and maybe pray for a Fire Rescue-Themed hovercraft Repaint of HFTD Seaspray) as Stormcloud,or should i Call him "Hydroblaze")

    yeah,i kinda regreted not getting the Universe 1.0 toys and were just occupied with the Armada and Energon toys when i was what,10? that and throwing poor Ratchet away after having a broken wheel,but really,i should just waited and bought super glue to fix that,only thing remaining from ratchet is the missile and the blade.front bumper blade thing
