    Sorry for the random thread and I apologize if it's already been posted before, but I was just curious.

    Does anyone here display any of their figures at work, be it an assigned cubicle or a private office? If you do, can you post any pics? I think if I ever have a job/career with a private office, I'm going to definitely display some of my collection in it.

    If I ever get to work in my own office, I'd have to put up at least one G1 Soundwave.

    I have a bunch of random toys at my cubicle. Right now the only TF's are K-reo Optimus Prime and KO Devastator.

    I have Leader Class Brawl, DotM Leader Class Bumblebee, G1 Omega Supreme, generations Blitzwing, Springer, and Blaster at my cubicle at work. I switch them out every few months.

    I have a few things at work, a couple statues, legends, mighty muggs and my Kre-Os. I'm in the process of moving into a new office at the moment, so no pics right now.

    I always had toys on my desk when I was a supervisor in an office, and one of the cleaning staff stole a Spider-Man toy from my desk. I think they found it in a locker and fired them!

    I have an mp greenscream on my desk. You'd be surprised at what a great conversation starter it isn't.

    I'd consider displaying some figures if we had permanent desks at my job, but we get moved around pretty freely based on which project we're on, so it would be more hassle than it's worth to move it all around whenever I'm assigned to a new project.

    I have DOTM Ironhide and Bumblebee and Target G1 style Jazz in my cubicle. At my old job I used to bring in a different figure in every day, but never kept any there. I shared a desk, so I couldn't make myself at home.

    My WfC/FoC collection is on display on a shelf at my work. I have my own office but I tend to keep display pieces up above the usual eye line. They make a good icebreaker with students who come to see me. I typically rotate in and out but keep a gestalt on display.

    Yup I sure do! I used to display almost my entire collection but eventually decided that looked too unprofessional. These days I rotate displaying a few pieces. Right now, I have MP-10 Masterpiece Prime in truck mode with Masterpiece Sideswipe coming down his trailer's ramp in car mode. I also have Masterpiece Soundwave in cassette player mode on a shelf with Laserbeak in bird mode sitting next to him.

    I have my own private office. I'm not the only one here at work with Transformers on display, I have met others too.

    I like to have a couple around the desk. Mostly smaller ones, right now Cyberverse Skyquake and Dreadwing is taking up residence. They've been there holding down the fort and keeping an eye on the cleaning crew. I think I need to relieve them of their duties soon though and bring another pair in.... or perhaps just IDW Orion Pax or BH Shockwave. Hmm, things to think about.

    I don't think I'll bring in any MP's any time soon though.

    I have a beautiful glass and chrome wet bar in my office and the shelves have Soul of Chogokin, Monsterarts, and a MP Grimlock sitting on the 14" Iron Throne replica from Game of Thrones.

    What's fun to me is that everyone is a child at heart. I am in the executive hallway and there's always a VP, CFO, or Director or someone popping in and they always go straight for the toys.

    Keep the display classy and high end.

    Oh, wow. Back in 2005 or so, I was working for a used car magazine and I had my own cubicle. Little by little, I started taking unused equipment that was lying around the office and built shelves that hung over my cubicle walls and started filling them with toys. My co-workers thought I was nuts (but my cubicle did become the top hang-out spot in the office for a while). Man, I wish I had some pics.
