    I collect Generations/CHUG figures of characters who appeared in the US G1 Transformers cartoon.

    My display is arranged left-to-right from season 1 to season 4, with Autobots on top and Decepticons below. It's built with wall-mounted track shelving using pre-finished 2', 3' and 4' shelves. I use Bandai Tamashii Stage Act figure stands and custom 3D-printed risers. In building my collection, I'm interested in cartoon accuracy (in most cases), scale, upgrades, and finding/building the "best" version of every character.

    Thanks! I have Brunt and Cog, but decided to not display them since they never appeared in the cartoon. I had Cog split up and "weaponizing" Fort Max for a while, and might do that again. I'd like to do the same with Brunt and Trypticon, but haven't figured out a good way to do it.

    Well, you're right. But Flywheels (aka Skytread) does appear in the season 4 intro, so you could add him, if you have him of course.

    this collection is GLORIOUS! i aspire to have a collection as glorious as yours! you've got such an amazing setup and its all in chug! you are the master of display! im honestly extremely jealous of this collection and am going to now bookmark this thread so i can keep track of it and if it changes, but also so that i can reference it for my own collection.

    also funnily enough, i have a lot of the figures you have for display. also i have shelves in my room that are very similar to yours.

    New additions: Hotlink really helps to fill out the Cybertron shelf, and Netflix Megatron fits in nicely with the other '84 Decepticons:

    Super-excited to finally have proper Earth-mode voyager seekers! I'm using Nonnef weapons with them:

    Lurking down in the corner is the KO undersized Devastator, I just bought him to develop undersized versions of my Devastator upgrades. He's filling in while UW Devastator is being used to design new upgrades. :)

    Thanks! I'm a total scale nerd and take care that all the figures work together as best as they can. That leads to me odd situations like using the inferior PotP Jazz over United Jazz just because he fits in with the Siege/Earthrise guys better, or buying Earthrise Astrotrain and Cliffjumper but not swapping them in until their peers (Blitzwing, minibots) also get updates so they match properly.

    Scale is always a difficult one, everyone looks at it a bit differently I think. I gave up trying to complete my chug collection because 3 years back there just wasn't any good options for some of the characters at the time. So went onto masterpiece instead and sold a lot of my chugs but even now I'm not happy with some of the official models. I mean I get the sunbow scale chart but in the comics I grew up with and even in the g1 cartoons at times characters like Ironhide, Prime stand similar heights to Prowl, Sunstreaker for example. I get there meant to be bigger but mp feels so big that some of the car bots feel like minibots.
    If I'd watched the news feed more often realised wfc/earthrise were gonna have such good offerings I would of probably just suck to Chug

    What about the Generations Jazz? Or is he the same as United Jazz. I have the Wheelie mold of him pretty good option.
