When you put it in a row like that, it seems that Classics line serve as the best representation of a figure. Then again, we have yet to see other upcoming MP

All these pictures look almost exactly like how I have my own displays setup.

I gotta agree with those who mentioned the Classics toys looking the worst out of the lot nearly each time. One thing that Classics will have over the rest is a growing comparison to the variety of G1.
I have to disagree with you there SQ7- I think the G1's look worse in pretty much every picture compared to the Classics and MPs. Yes they have history, yes they were the originals and yes the alt modes are good, but the bot modes are so so bad that unless you have a serious sentimental attachment to the G1 toys, they are clearly the worst of the 3... I think you are looking at them with rose tinted glasses if you actually think they look better.

why? because they're not poseable? the things that make them look better are the chrome, and perfect paint apps (other than wear on some) they're accurate, have great real world alt modes. and they stand well on a shelf. there are the odd one that's kinda out there, just like any line, they're not perfect

classics are barely painted with sloppy paint apps, the proportions are no better on a lot of them, (sunstreaker's hammer pants and tiny arms, prowl's a total mess, ironhide, etc) and most of them have a passing resemblance at best to the character. i still like them, but all they really have going for them is poseability imo and that can be a pain if they're not flat footed, or they're like a lot of the universe figures that barely stand on the best of days

mps are head and shoulders above them, but classics are definitely the lesser of the three in my collection. most non collectors that i have in my house don't even give the classics a second glance, (much like animated or prime) unless i specifically point them out

I, for one, can appreciate a journey through collecting G1 toys: Especially the comparisons to today's versions of the characters.
