    2018 Update!

    I figured it was time to update the collection thread, seeing as how we've moved house twice since then, and added a lot more figures and display space.

    Enjoy!

    13 Primes (with a lot of stand-ins).
    I wanted to include the concept of the four different planet leaders from the Cybertron series, and I also had to play around a bit with the characters to fit with what figures I had.

    YOTH MP10 is my combined Prima/Arisen/Optimus Prime. Rather than being the last of the Thirteen, he's the first, and of course wields the Star Saber.
    Vector Prime and Alpha Trion are unchanged.
    Safeguard Mini-Con: Micronus Prime
    MMC Nitro: Solus Prime
    Universe Springer: Quintus Prime (Springer is of course the Evac mold, and Evac was called Live Convoy in Galaxy Force, and "Live" is close to "Life", so it kind of fits?)
    Sentinel Prime: Fills the smooth-talking Liege Maximo Role, but retains the Sentinel Prime title
    RID Scourge: Nemesis Prime, who takes the place of Alchemist Prime
    TLK Megatron: Megatronus
    CR Gigatron: Amalgamous Prime
    Universe Bruticus/Cybertron Scourge: Onyx Prime
    Generations Ruination: Nexus Prime
    Cybertron Metroplex: Colossus Prime

    I honestly didn't have any other place to put Primus and Unicron, so they go stuck on the Beast Wars shelves:

    Now for all the close-ups.

    I've always tried to capture a sense of symmetry in my displays, and though that won't come across as well through a series of pictures, just know that if there's a figure on a shelf that doesn't necessarily *fit*, it's because I've made some sort of concession to satisfy my needs.

    Also, mind the dust. After I've finished updating the collection thread, I'm emptying all the shelves to clean them, and setting up an enormous battle scene in the living room! Follow #TFtakeover2018 on Twitter if you'd like to see the carnage!

    Autobots first!

    Wait, what? Hotrod standing next to Rodimis Prime?

    Thanks!

    How so? You mean that I have an Armada Blurr and Cybertron Blurr, but no G1, Animated, or Generations?

    I totally forgot! I'll get right on that, and update the top post.

    EDIT: Top post updated. I also switched around a couple characters in the Autobot Shelf close-ups and updated the pics to reflect the new arrangement. Not that you'll be able to tell.:rolleyes2 

    My next task is to list each figure/character for each shot. That should only take...oh, say, FOREVER.:eek:
