    So Hubcap, Animated Arcee , and PCC Huffer are now permanent residents of of my Classics collection. Is that a stretch? They all look good in alt forms! Plus I have the minibots that were so hard to find. (Wheelie, Warpath, Cosmos, and Brawn.)

    I dunno, in my opinion Animated is the one line that can really only fit with itself. I mean, I love the Arcee figure, but to be honest I don't really think she works with Classics.

    Hubcap and Huffer work fine, though, they totally fall into that realm of "pseudo-Classics hybrids".

    But hey, don't let other people tell you how to display your collection! If it works for you, that's all that matters! :)  And when in doubt, remember that no line was more of a stylistic grab-bag than G1, so there is quite a healthy precedent for a mixed collection.

    I agree, her and Magnus and Rodimus look awesome together! Just need a Kup and Blurr! And Blurr is on the way!

    I display the Classics in Alt mode, so Arcee, Huffer and Hubcap fit in just fine. I missed Silverbolt because I was broke, and I couldn't justify Powerglides robot mode...the only two I am missing...

    I agree 100% with WM, I have a few figures in my classics line up.

    -Energon WingSaber as Star Saber
    -Energon Downshift as Wheeljack
    -PCC Huffer
    -HTFD Seaspray
    -ROTF Bludgeon
    -ROTF Mindwipe and Skystalker as Mindwipe and Vorath (I believe that's his name)
    -ROTF Lockdown

    Any thing that doesn't look too outta place for me. Like I had the Target variant of 2007 Jazz in the line up but eventually took him down because it just didn't look right and we are getting a better one.

    Putting all theses dudes, and one dudet, on a four lane highway makes me feel like a kid again. Windcharger, Jazz, and Tracks are going to be the icing on the cake!

    Huffer and Hubcap are in my Classics display too. I don't own Arcee, but I'd give rate her a possible fit.

    This thread is misleading. I thought you were going to let people who don't have Classics molds pay you to be able sleep with your figures.:D 
    Naturally, a night with Shattered Glass Optimus/Rodimus or Gentei Windcharger would only have been for premium paying customers.

    hey it's your collection, include what ever you'd like lol

    personally, i've been planning on getting a few galaxy force figures, like armorhide, and using that as pipes; energon jetfire would make a nice scattershot, and Scorponok, and Shockblast, work well too, and or six shot; and dark scorponok too.

    I'd add in that, if you're happy with TFA Arcee in there, and so you should be, that TFA Blurr works really well, too.

    question:
    would you put TFA Wreck-Gar in your Classics display?

    that one has had my brain itching for a while. Bot mode, maybe. Alt mode, erm...i don't think so.

    but i guess there has to be a stopping point for merging TFA with Classics.

    He's a cool toy, and if I were rich, I would have picked him up, but my Classics does not need a dump truck. If that toy was more like a box (G1), I would have picked him up.

    I love Animated and Arcee but I do not put her in my classics collection. Her head is too big. I have a TRNS-01 Valkyrie coming in the mail so I am hoping that the size is good for classics. I have not seen many pictures of it yet but it looks possibly too small.

    I count Alternity Cliff and Bumblebee in my classics (usurping the actual classics) along with masterpiece Grimlock. The legends have been too hard for me to get as of yet.
