    I wasnt sure if there was a thread like this already.

    As the title says I was wondering what transformers people put on there MP shelfs from other lines.

    Ex) I like to put Cybertron Galvatron as my MP Megatron

    I have a feeling most here would use 3rd parties as MP stand ins as most other lines are either too simplistic or too aesthetically different. I could see someone using Energon Galvatron as a stand in though since it is the best Galvatron we've gotten to date even if it is only marginally more articulated than the original G1.

    Personally I'm looking forward to Omnigonix's Spinout as a Sunstreaker stand in.

    I've often though of picking up Gen. Whirl, he'll never get the MP treatment and he does look pretty good. Though right now money's tight, so that idea is on the rocks, but if I were rolling in green, I'd strongly consider it.

    I use MP Grimlock as a stand-in for a decent Classics Grimmy.

    When I get him, I'm going to use the Megatron Megadrive. Haven't seen pics next to other transformers, but he's supposed to be about 7.5" so he'll be similar in size. Might be a too thin.
