    ALL !




    if you have Constructicon Maximus , you have to get Superion Maximus.

    Also you have to get Omega Supreme

    I love Landmine (Landquake). He's one of my all time favorite Transformers. Wing Saber is essential to make Optimus a better toy. By himself he's crap, but he was designed pretty much colely to make OP cool. You might also like Decepticon Slugslinger; he's a little odd but he'll stand out on your shelf.

    If you want to go show-accurate, I'd say have:

    Bots:
    -Prime
    -Hot Shot
    -Inferno
    -Jetfire
    -Ironhide
    -Rodimus
    -Prowl
    -Landmine
    -Omega Supreme
    -Wing Saber

    Cons:
    -Megs
    -Starscream
    -Demolishor
    -Snow Cat
    -Mirage
    -Shockblast
    -Scorponok
    -Constructicon Maximus

    If you wish, you can add Superion and Bruticus to each side, but this is pretty much the core cast of characters from the show. Most of those toys are not bad at all, either.

    I wouldn't bother with any of the deluxe Autobots as they were all pretty horrible. Downshift was the only decent one. I didn't like Mirage and love Slugslinger, but a lot of people feel the opposite so I won't suggest it.

    Out of the ones you don't have I'd recommend:
    Bruticus Maximus - best of the Energon combiners
    Divebomb - The best Terrorcon available
    Battle Ravage - great beast mode
    Skyblast - love this little guy even though he doesn't have knees.

    I don't have Omega Supreme or Landmine, but I hope to get them eventually.

    I just won an auction on ebay for an omega supreme mib ($83 delivered). I'd seen some loose sets 100% complete sell for around the same price. Also saw another one loose that sold for ~$50 delivered, so that's what appears to be the range. It doesn't appear to come out on ebay that often, but i haven't been checking for that long. But the yamato battleship mode alone makes him worth it.

    Many of them are rather weak. If you had only one. Mirage is the best.

    I cant believe no one mentioned ARCEE!!!

    I got: Arcee Divebomb and Omega Supreme... Pretty much the only ones i think are essential...

    (and they go rather lovely along with my main collection, Classics-verse.)

    Get them all!!!

    No I'm kidding. There's only a few great molds in there.

    - Sharkticon (not in the pic)
    - Laserbeak/ Shadowhawk (awesome!)
    - Laserwave/ Shockblast (awesome!)
    - Mirage
    - Gruellock
    - Roadblock

    Missing in this picture are all non show characters and Shadowhawk, Beachcomber, the construction maximus limbs and Omega Sentinel.

    Energon Omega and Superlink Wheeljack(much better than Energon Downshift IMO) are my top 2 but there are a lot of good ones.

    Scorponok, Dreadwing and Shockblast are pretty cool.
