i grew up watching Beast Wars and i collect CHUG now but seeing how i haven't seen any of the old shows, all my figures are displayed together. The only separation is Good (Autobots, Maximals) and the Evil (Deception, Shattered Glass Autobots) So i was wondering if I was the odd man out. I like to think that all the dimensions(story lines) were running parallel and each world's Optimus and Megatron had one hand of the Matrix and pulled, breaking it into to and when it broke in all the dimensions it released a chain reaction splitting the dimensions and creating this new crossover dimension. This explains how there can be more then one Optimus, Bumblebee, etc (i usually dump them new names i.e. WFC Bumblebee is now known as Rumblebee). this also covers why i dont have to buy each and every figure that comes out, Bots are coming out of the jumbled mess of the old generations all the time (this is just when i get a new figure) and they can be from any dimensions (usually CHUG but I'll never leave a transformer at a thrift store/yard sale) So i guess, what this thread is asking is if anyone else collects/displays like this. It also gave me a chance to throw out my storyline.
