    Either Beast Wars Megatron or IDW Nova Prime.

    I've long thought that Shockwave could be rebuilt with Megatron (grey metal) to create Shackwave.

    Probably either Cyclonus, Shockwave, or Skywarp. They all have qualities that make them candidates; with Cyclonus's closeness to Galvatron, Shockwave's lack of emotion making him an ideal choice maker, and Skywarp's position as a seeker. Thundercracker would be unsure and helpless, and you said no Starscream.

    Scorponok because of the character depth he was given in Marvel G1. If I'm picking someone who was never Decepticon leader before, I'm gonna jump on the Onslaught bandwagon. He's a strategic military genius who led a successful invasion of Cybertron with a team of five. Plus, I imagine he'd keep the other Combaticons around in case Starscream or someone else tried to usurp them.

    I think Scorponok would do good.

    I would really enjoy a comic run all about a Decepticon battle royale for the throne after Megatron's / Galvatron's demise.

    The best contenders in my opinion are:

    Shockwave
    Thunderwing
    Straxus
    BW Megatron
    Scorponok
    Overlord

    Now imagine a Game of Thrones style war between them for the title of Leader of the Decepticons... full of alliances, betrayals, Autobot interference, politics, scheming, etc.

    But mostly with robot punches, lasers, and explosions lol. Give them each a combiner and a small army of 'cons that support them and let the sparks fly

    The way I see it, without Megatron you'd see the Decepticons break into splinter groups - unless you have a strong enough leader.

    I'd like to see Shockwave conclude this and act as a power behind the throne to a clone Megatron who he installs as leader. For bonus points, said clone could be Archforce / purple G2 Megatron.

    1) Marvel Shockwave.
    2) cartoon Cyclonus
    3) Marvel UK Soundwave.

    Actually, thinking back, I wish in Season 3 Cyclonus had become the Decepticon leader with Galvatron as a loose cannon (like he was in the Marvel UK run). I don't consider Galvatron to be suited as Decepticon leader. It would've required a bigger, better toy for Cyclonus, although the toy that we got would work as Rodimus his opponent (while Magnus was hunting Galvatron). And it would be nice to have a jet finally leading the Decepticons.

    I would say Shockwave or Black Zarak/Scorponok. Nemesis Prime would be funny too!

    1) Shockwave
    2) In a cruel twist of irony, Nemesis Prime
    3) Overlord
    4) It would interesting if one of the Dreads had taken command through a battle similar to the one in Black Panther.
    5) Nitro Zues
    6) Lockdown

    Soundwave. I'm actually pretty happy with what IDW has done with him and taking over the Decepticons and reforming them.

    I just rediscovered one of those hiding in a cardboard box in the basement...thought I sold it a long time ago. He could serve as the leader AND the troops all at the same time...

    If Megatron falls and Starscream goes rogue, then I would like to see...

    Soundwave, if not, he could easily be second in command
    Shockwave
    Deathsaurus
    Black Zarack
    Devil Z
    Onslaught
    Deszaras

    As Decepticon leaders
