    My Deluxe CHUGs shelves are starting to get very lopsided in the autobots favor. Getting two more sweeps and Frenzy/Rumble will shore it up a bit, but how can my decepticon army instill fear in the sparks of the autobots when they are almost outnumbered 2-1??
    The simple thing for Hasbro to do is repaint me some bots into cons. Stunticons please!
    I will probably add some not-constructicons and crossfire/munitioner to them if I can steal a few kidneys.
    What new deluxe CHUGs decipticon molds would you guys like to see from Hasbro?
    I want Blitzwing(!!!), Reflector(on his way?), Insecticons(scout class would be fine on these), and most of all-Shockwave.
    A soundwave repaint from Perceptor would also be amazing(Do Blaster too!)

    Its too bad really. And when they do decepticons, they are lacking. Stunticons would be awesome. Not devy, oh not devy is gonna require me to sell some stuff I really like to get it.

    I'd just balance them by completing the Seekers and Sweeps.

    I have two shelves for my Autobots and 1 for my Decepticons.

    With Bruticus and the upcoming Devi. Plus the possible MicroCassette player Soundwave and the obvious cassettes for that figure. Plus the FP Insecticons. I think in time the Autobots are going to have a real fight on their hands that they may not be able to win.

    Aren't you assuming there are going to be cassettes for it? I mean all the pics I saw showed it using the G1 cassettes. Also, he is looking to be way to skinny. I hope I am wrong.

    Back on topic. That's what makes the Decepticons bad ass, they are always out numbered but they are so strong they can take on more.

    Which is kind of a pity; from a narrative standpoint, that should be what's badass about the Autobots.
    Beast Machines had it right, there; a handful of good guys against a planetful of bad guys makes it more meaningful when they win. Good guys beating an enemy they massively outnumber just looks like bullying. :p

    I think a nice voyager sized Galvatron that didn't suck would even the odds.

    This seems to be the nature of the beast. I just looked in issue 1 of the marvel comics. 18 Autobots and 10 Decepticons. The Decepticons have usually been outnumbered. As for current figures of Classics I have 14 Decepticons and 20 Autobots.

    i have a few of the 6 inch titaniums on my decepticon shelf and some customs, they are actually close to being even with the bots, but i think the next package will unbalance them again, oh well, such is collecting, just have to make more customs

    I have Energon Scorponok an Shockblast. I also bought the PE Frenzy and Rumble these helped alot but still unbalanced. Need to buy Muntioner, Explorer, and the upcoming Insecticons and I'll be happy with my Classics shelf.

    We don't actually know that both of those will be released in RTS packaging.

    Part of the problem is that the Decepticons had a lot of sub-teams and Hasbro for some odd reason doesn't want to touch sub-teams any more unless it's something like a nod in Power Core combiners.

    So that's 3 Insecticons we don't have, 6 Constructicons we don't have, 5 Stunticons we don't have, and 5 Combaticons we don't have. Release those sub-teams and the Decepticon number shoot up.

    About all we can do it when Hasbro has communication with the fans we need to remind them that we love Decepticons. Joe fans kept asking for more Cobra and Hasbro responded with cool Cobra stuff so it's worth a try.

    Its true. But also to be fair, they have a LOT of powerhouses that are not given treatment.

    Bots like:

    Trypticon
    Sixshot (admittingly hard to do)
    Blitzwing
    Scorponok


    etc.

    The fact that Cobra figures tend to lend themselves to troop building may have been a factor.

    I think Animated handled it really well- the cons are bigger and stronger, so it requires greater numbers to take them on. Even G1 did that a little bit by having most of the cons being larger than the Autobot cars. Soundwave and the jets were usually shown as head and shoulders taller than Sideswide, Jazz, etc.
