    Who here knows of any good Decepticon jets?

    I love those guys. I have Universe Deluxe Starscream and Acid Storm, Movie Thundercracker, and Movie legends Stealth Starscream, whom I call Skywarp. I love them all!

    I am a fan of the G1 Incarnation of the seekers, and could stand to buy a few more decepticon Jets. Which ones are the best, buy which I mean, fun to Transform, poseable, and aren't easy to break. And color acurate. I likes me some color accuracy. :D

    G2 Dreadwing and Smokescreen are really cool. There's quite a variety of repaints to pick from as well.

    classics are nice or masterpiece but they can take a long time transforming.

    G1 Darkwing and Dreadwind are my favorite Decepticon jets, with the Classics Seeker mold and Universe Cyclonus both occupying a close second place.

    I'm a fan of the little Cyberjets and Machine Wars jets. Small and relatively simple, but they all look really good in a large group.

    If you're going for the G1 look grab Energon 'Energon' Starscream - he's a pretty good representation of pre All Hail Megatron IDW Starscream (before the seekers took on F15s again).

    Beast Machines Jetstorm is worth a mention - there are a few decos out there and if I had to pick one I'd say go for the Universe (1.0) Skywarp deco. The Stormjet deco, the G1 Jetfire homage from RiD, is a close second.

    One of my goals that I hope to complete in the next half year is to have all 6 of the G1 seekers in deluxe size, in all different molds. So far it looks like

    Starscream - Energon 'Energon' repaint
    Skywarp - Universe 1.0
    Thundercracker - Cybertron
    Thrust - RotF
    Dirge - RotF
    Ramjet - Classics

    Which would give me seekers made of an F22, Su35, F35, Harrier, modified F15, and space jet.

    classics/henkei.and mp.i think starscream=henkei,thundercracker=doesnt matter,botcon and henkei are both good.skywarp=henkei,but only slightly better than classics love both.thrust=botcon,will never even consider buying henkei thrust.dirge=botcon,but the wing shape is more g1 on henkei.ramjet=i have classics,and i like it,henkei probably has a better color scheme,but it also has a chrome cockpit which is a little weird.for mps i would go starscream=walmart.skywarp=wait till november,then walmart.thundercracker=only one choice,takara.

    Like others said any classics/henkei seeker will suit you just fine, universe Cyclonus is a must as well. And you NEED to get your hands on G2 Dreadwing and Smokescreen. Great alt modes, very good poseability and transformations, they are pure awesomeness. Or you can get the Beast Wars 2 recolors of the those two. They're called Starscream and BB. You can find them both in a MISB set on ebay for cheap money.

    Starscream and BB

    They cost more and the color combination of blue-grey-yellow-lavender isn't as cool looking as black-purple-grey-yellow IMO.
