    Rules are simple. Pics of bases/playsets + "mini" figures (micromasters, minicons, WSTs, minibots, legends, cyberverse, etc.)

    Let me start with my version of "The Ark vs. The Nemesis" featuring DOTM Cyberverse Ark, Beast Wars Maximal Mobile Base, and various WSTs and micromasters.

    I thought I had taken pics of the Space Minicons with Ratchet's Lunar Crawler. Guess not... :(

    Sorry about that, wrong name. It's actually the "Beast Wars II Cybertron Mobile Base". Or whatever it's called.

    This.

    Those are actually some of the main things that survived from my childhood.

    Looks like DotM Cyberverse stuff with Armada-era mini-cons.

    Well I took these with horrible lighting and an Ipod touch last year. It's RID Ultra Magnus in a base configuration:

    Some minicons are present. The picture quality just doesn't help them get noticed.

    I am the designated spider/bug catch-and-releaser in my home, since they don't bother me in the slightest. That said, that micro-base spider thing scares the hell out of me. :eek: 

    I have the killer whale base, it's great. And tht big Maximal base thing looks awesome. reminds me.of the big Gobots mobile base, which is fun too. Love the RID Ultra Magnus base mode, nice job!

    Very cool. Fan mode, yus?
    Saves me having to dig mine out. :p  Loved those tiny figures they came with. These bases are certainly a couple of the weirder main line TF toys though. Very Mighty Max.
    Actually, since I'm here, I found a couple of photos I took last year while going through my old packaging stash. Unfortunately the Orcanoch box must've straddled that transition period where I stopped hacking up my packaging for just the good bits and instead saved it whole folded flat like Arachnid's one is. And look at Arachnid's parts on the box and in the pics you posted, and the paint design on the spider's back. That's a 'colours may vary' selection if ever there was one:

    Actually, looking at these boxes it reminds me just how un-striking the Beast Wars packaging was. It doesn't really pop out at you. Muddy reddish-brown and pictures with orange backgrounds? That's not gonna stand out well on the store shelves amongst other toylines.

    Yup! Those, and DOTM human alliance scouts Sandstorm and Thunderhead.

    I have this too. Fan mode weapons platform for Armada Overload. No minicons in this picture, but it's intended for them.

    Looking forward to the Prime vehicles
