    Thanks! I think I can split my autobot forces between Optimus, Rodimus and Fortress Maximus (and maybe a small wreckers group under Impactor?), though Optimus will seriously outnumber them. Hope I'll get to taking some pictures of that :) 

    edit: ran a quick count, I have 40 autobots under Optimus, 19 under Rodimus, only 6 under Fortress and 12 under Impactor (added drift and nightbeat there). Not including cassettes and target masters. Combiners (including Throttleboss) are counted as one :) 
    Hopefully when the Titans Return line will be over Fortress will have a few more

    I group by year of G1 toy release

    Optimus and Megatron lead their original 84 (and 85 for now) crews

    Jetfire and Shockwave will lead the '85 group when that part gets big enough for its own shelf and we get a good CHUG Shockwave

    Ultra Magnus and Galvatron lead the '86 guys (Even if we get a decent voyager Rodimus Prime, he won't be leading because he'll be at the center of the display)

    After that, things start to get a little more difficult.
    I don't know who to have lead the 87 bots, but the cons will be lead by Sixshot. I might combine 87-88 into one shelf and have PMOP lead the boy side.

    Yeah thats how I'll do it too, I can't do it right now but when I move out and get better shelving my CHUG shelves will go like this...

    CW Optimus Prime & hopefully TR Megatron leading the 84 and 85 Autobots & Decepticons plus guys from the cartoon like Devcon, Bitstream, & Hotlink.

    Probably the upcoming Platinum Titanium Rodmus Prime & TR Galvatron leading the 86 Autobots and Decepticons plus outliers like Impactor, Roadbuster, & Whirl.

    TR Powermaster Optimus Prime & Botcon Scorponok leading the 87 to 89 Autobots and Decepticons.

    The last shelf will be filled with G2 & IDW Transformers so I don't know who will lead those shelves.

    My animated, my Bayverse trilogy, & my Prime shelves are all led by an Optimus & Megatron. My RID shelf is led by Bumblebee & Steeljaw. AOE shelf is Optimus & Galvatron, my Botcon/TFCC shelf is led by Ultra Mammoth & Megaplex, & my SG/Outliers shelf is Ultra Magnus & Galvatron.

    Sorry for the late reply! I'll send pictures when I can.

    Also, I'm editing the old post because I've gotten new figures since then.

    Headcanon.
    All on the same shelf. Since I have way more Autobots than Decepticons, it was necessary to divide up the Bots, while the Cons are able to stay together.

    Okay...thought that your canon maybe had roots or motives...my mistake...

    So, do you have or intend to get Classic versions of these or are these the G1 you speak of...???...

    I really just kinda let there be sub-groups of the five factions and have them fall under each respective leader.

    Optimus leads all my Autobots, but all my other Primes have equal standing alongside him. I like to think that Superion leads all the Autobot combiners with the exception of Optimus Maximus. Wreck-Gar leads to Junkions and Springer leade the Wreckers, but they all are under Optimus.
    I see Fortress Maximus as the original founder of the Maximals so they all look up to him. Optimus Primal(Bat, and a clone of Optimus), Lio Conoy, Big Convoy, Optimus Primal(Munkey), all serve as Primes during the Beast Era portion of my collection.

    Megatron leads my Decepticons, Straxus leads his own forces as a general of Darkmount(basically a splinter faction after the death of Megatron.) Galvatron co-leads other forces with Soundwave/Soundblaster after Megatron as well. Deathsaurus and and Megaplex kinda serve as leaders before the rise of the Predacons, which Razodclaw founds. My. predacons are partially led by the Predacus council and the other terroristic half are lead by Megatron(BW, clone of Megaplex.)

    My Unicronians are all lead by Unicron, but I just through them in with the. Decepticons. I don't really seperate them other then faction.

    Not splintered factions as such, but in my display i'm probably going to have the factions divided into groups.
    My Decepticons will have Megatron in the middle, and then an "Air Force" made up of the Seekers and any other flying bots and a "Ground Division" made up of Blitzwing, Dropshot etc..
    As for the Autobots, a similar deal but with the addition of a "Science division" made of Jetfire, Perceptor, The Technobots, and Brainstorm.

    I don't know if these have been mentioned but when I had an Energon collection on display they were grouped off into their sub groups.

    Team Prime: Jetfire, Hotshot, Inferno, Ironhide, Wingsaber and Omega Supreme.
    Team Rodimus: Landmine and Prowl.
    Team Bulkhead: Downshift and Cliffjumper.
