Dr Fang's Collection

Since it's the most current main line, we'll start with the Cybertron Bookcase, which is on the right-hand wall of my bedroom, between the door to the hallway and the pocket door leading into the bathroom.
Earth Autobots and Decepticons. Skyshadow is holding the "Oblivion" Saber because that's why Jetfire is under cover-- to retrieve the rogue Mini-Cons. I've incorporated the Classics Mini-Cons back into the UT, where they originated. They're the only Mini-Cons I've actually got on display at the moment, since a good deal of them are in a plastic bag left over from when I rearranged shelves the day before yesterday.
Now we have Cybertron's leader (gold key) figures, plus Galaxy Force Vector Prime and Cybertron Defense Hot Shot. CDHS is there because he becomes leader of Velocitron at the end of the series. Hanging from Evac's winch is the Omega Lock.
Speed Planet, plus the slightly incongruous Galvatron and Nemesis Breaker. He's only there because I ran out of room on Giant Planet's shelf.
Because it's Giant Planet. The smallest figures on this shelf are Sideways and Unicron. It's a Planet X/Giant Planet showdown, plus Wing Saber.
YARR! I love Pirates so hugging much, and I was just thrilled to find out that Cannonball is one. Here's his crew: He's equal opportunity Unicron Trilogy, with the exception of Nemesis Prime. Anyone who's read my fanfic will understand a lot of the choices here. You can't tell from this shot, but I've got Ultimate Battle Classics Megatron there (Gutcruncher), Cybertron Voyager Starscream (Thrust), Bert and Ernie (yellow and red Scrapmetals), Energon Slugslinger (Fangrel), and one of each Terrorcon except for Insecticon.
Here's a clearer shot:

Damn I have a messy desk. My 2003 Allspark Hall of Fame award is there, as well as some original Matt Nelson Superdeformers artwork. Yes, that's a plush Dragonite foot.
The VCR shelf of the TV armoire is stuffed with Mini-Mates, Smallest TFs, LOCs, and Lego X-Pods. And Titanium Unicron. And Chris's great grandfather's memoires manuscript. And a Gameboy. And lots of dust.
Here are the Primes and Primals, bottom row: G1 reissue Rodimus Prime, Big Convoy, DVD Robot Masters Leo Prime, Primal Prime, BW10th Anniversary Optimus Primal, Vector Prime (a mishmash of the US and Japanese versions, since my Japanese Galaxy Force VP was damaged in the fire), Beast Machines Primal, RID Primal, and an original BW ultra Primal.
Above them are the big guns: Super Fire Convoy, Star Convoy, 20th Anniversary Prime, Galaxy Convoy (he and VP were the only major purchases from Galaxy Force-- I simply could not wait), Beast Planet Optimus Prime, THS-02 Prime, LOC Vector Prime, Energon Powerlinx Prime, Armada Superbase Prime, LOC Cybertron Prime, and Ultimate Battle Prime. I try to have an iteration of each generation's Prime or Primal.
Now we move to the small etagere next to my TV. Primus and Unicron are on the second shelf, and below them I actually have BOOKS in a bookshelf! Happy Meal Rhino and Panther, plus BW Poison Bite and Jawbreaker, a little gashapon Venom, and Cookie Monster round out the book shelf.
Above them are my only other major non-TF display, my Bionicle figures. Vezon is atop Kardas, with severa Barraki, Piraka, a Visorak and one of those other evil Bionicle guys from a few years ago. On the side of the armoire is a Toa Inika fighting with a Piraka and a Barraki.
Alternators take up two shelves. I've got every current US release except Camshaft. Swindle and Dead End are Binaltechs, and I wish I had the American versions; they're both very floppy and top-heavy.
I already need to update this picture, as I found Classics Jetfire this evening.
Energon figures. I'm considering punting them into storage.
Off-screen RID vs. Scourge and Fort Max. For a while I had Megabolt atop Fortress Maximus.

I got that Abominus complete at Botcon a few years back, but the Sinnertwin broke. Fortunately, while box-diving in my mom's garage, I found my original G1 Sinnertwin, still in really good shape. Sticker wear here and there, but I don't care about that all that much. All of the G1 Autobots on the shelf to the left of Abominus are reissues except for Wheelie; the shelf below are all originals.
Universe! Probably my favorite overall line because of the story and the choices in figures from all eras. I have pretty much the entire line minus a couple of the Micromaster sets and the Target Constructicons; I skipped the dollar store Energon repacks because I already have them.
Above the Decepticon Universe figures I have my badges from just about every Con I've been to. I was volunteer staff at OTFCC 04. It was fun.
It occurs to me I didn't get a shot of the Universe Decepticons today, so this old shot from April 06 will have to do. They haven't moved much since then.
More Universe Autobots:
G1 Autobots. Powermaster Prime and G2 Grimlock are original, the rest are reissues:
RID. Pretty boring:
I like to hang my toys up:
Best of the Beast Wars. There's no rhyme or reason to their organization; it's just the figures I like the most. When I get more space, they'll all go on display.
Here's the first two thirds of the Unicron Trilogy: Armada Autobots and Decepticons vs. Energon Autobots. Again, space issue.
Here's the Energon Decepticons on the other display in the bedroom:
This here is my Megatrons shelf. I need to dig my Gigatron out of storage, and get Smallest Megatron down from the Cannonball shelf (I inadvertantly left him there when shooting):
Armada Megatron's sort of obscured, sorry.
Beast Wars the Tenth: Kind of a sparse display, but it was a small line. These guys are relatively boring, and I mostly got them for Tarantulas and Trans-Mutate, since those were molds I didn't have already.
And here's the only toy display in the living room; it sits above the wet bar:
McFarlane Dragons are awesome little statues.
And that's pretty much it. I have some random Lego displays around the house-- the Millennium Falcon sits atop the filing cabinet in the dining room, and I've got a lot of Vikings kits on my "studio" shelf in the office, but they're all really dusty.
I've changed the layout of my computer hutch since then; no framed images, just Lego Batman and Star Wars stuff.

I know there's a joke here somewhere. Something about the closet and the toys.......I'll get back to you.

which is very shocking news... I had to ask the nurse at the emergancy waiting room why I could still see if my eyeballs were leaking...
she laughed and some fairly large men escorted me toward the door.
