    Do you segregate Animated from Movie figures?

    I am finding that with my love of the new animated series, and the look of the figures, I feel no need to seperate the lines in any way. Specifically, I dont need to see "realistic" movie versions of Ahsoka, Anakin or anyone.

    To me they found the right look for this line that strays from the blocky animated look of the miniseries figures, while maintaining a pseudo-animated/realistic look. I have actually bought six figures from this line, and havent purchased any of the movie lines in months.

    [FONT=Courier New]I haven't really been collecting the animated figures, in fact other than the main characters, I have been selling the clones that come with the AT-TE and the Speeder Bikes to a local toy shop.[/FONT]

    You're not supposed to segregate them. It's illegal.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I want to separate them, but until they make a more realistic Ahsoka, I can't.

    I separate them when I put them up for display, at least I did with the last Clone Wars figures from the cartoon series. They don't look right together me thinks.

    I segregate them fully from my regular figures, they just don't look right. I have my VOTC R2-D2 next to my CW R2-D2 (i have a bunch of different R2s together), and it's clear they don't go together at all.

    I do segregate my figures. Mainly in the fact that I've packed up and placed 99.9% of my realistic figures in storage and am primarily displaying animated style Clone Wars figures right now.

    I only have 4 realistic style figures and two vehicles on display right now. Everything else is from the animated line.

    for me, the movie figures are segregated by episode
    then the EU figures are all mixed together
    then the original CW realistic have their own shelves

    now the CW animated figures have their own shelves

    but I do mix the duplicate droids, whatever their source
    my goal is to have every sculpt of every droid and every variation for sale by my Jawas

    Droids 'R' Us in the name of their store
    all of the unused accessories are for sale there as well

    I do mix EU imperial figures onto my Death Star, just to keep all the imperials together

    so, in short, yes and no

    I believe the Ahsoka figure is realistic enough to fit in the realistic line, but she isn't mixed in in my collection
