    Hi guys! No, this is not a WANT thread. :) 

    I'm forming a team of Decepticons to pit against my Classics Wreckers, and I want to ask you guys for ideas.

    The core of my team is Maketoys Chaos/Paladin. He'll be the leader of the group. In case you're not familiar with 3rd party figures, this is him.

    I was thinking what's a leader without followers or minions? Conveniently, I have Generations Sky Shadow and First Edition Vehicon in hand, so they are my first two recruits.

    I'm looking for two to three more to complete my team.

    Here are some criteria:

    1) Deco has to be predominantly BLACK
    2) Can't look completely out of place in a Classics line up. Which means maybe all Animated figures are out. I think some movie and TF Prime figures should fit in nicely.
    3) No Optimus Prime molds. So no Scourge/Nemesis Prime.
    4) Has to look menacing/evil. For example, Classics Skywarp would fit the above criteria, but would still look out of place.

    I would appreciate your inputs because I got back to collecting just last year, so I'm unfamiliar with lines after G1 and before TF Prime.

    Right now, I'm considering ROTF Mindwipe and TFP Silas Breakdown. United Lugnut would also have been great, but I just realized that he's not black.

    Advanced thanks to you all!

    EDIT June 6, 2013

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

    I'd recommend the following figures:

    Retrax: Beast Wars

    CrazyBolt: Beast Wars Neo

    Arachnid: Beast Wars Version or Prime Version.

    Lockdown: Movie.

    Barricade: 1st Movie.

    BWII: BB and Starscream [aka G2 ATB Megatron and Starscream or RID Smokescreen and Dreadwind]

    TFA Megatron: Shadowblade Repaint.

    ROTF Megatron: Shadowblade Version.

    Skyfall with Renderform head upgrade (not sure if it is black enough for you).

    Tomahawk with 07 Movie Stockade's head makes a great G1 Tracer, especially with the alternate, less chicken-y leg transformation. Should fit in your team nicely.

    Thanks guys! Great suggestions. Here are my thoughts so far:

    My mind is made up on BB & Starscream. I also came across Cybertron Dark Fang Wolf, I think I prefer him to Nemesis Breaker.

    Crankcase sure looks very menacing, but not very classic-y.

    WFC Darkside Megs would have been perfect; I had him before but I sold him. And he might not want to cede leadership to The Fallen.

    Cyberton Soundblaster is okay, if I can find him. Then I realize, FOC Soundblaster would be PERFECT! And he's readily available :)  - EDIT : I googled, I think there's no "Cybertron Soundblaster" :) 

    Dark Skyfire looks great! But it might be hard to get him for a good price.

    So yeah, for now it's BB and Starscream, Dark Fang Wolf, and FOC Soundblaster. Thanks for all the input guys, I really appreciate it! I'll post pics of the team when they're complete :)

    With a Decepticon sticker applied, Cyberfire Bumblebee would fit an evil lineup perfectly.

    It's galaxy force. Was never released in the states in the cybertron line.
    Still think it would fit your criteria pretty nicely though. But it's likely gonna cost you unless you can find a deal. Probably better going with FOC.

    What about Silas Breakdown?

    Also I have Galaxy Force Soundblaster and he is a VERY nice deco.

    Dark Nitro Convoy, too. (I have him too) if he's black enough for you.

    Ah. Another person who prefers the darker decos like me. <.< Well, here we go!

    FansProject Backfiery, Stormbomb, and Thundershred.

    While not fully black, HFTD Terradive is in my lineup of uber evil. He's also weilding Spacecases Trident rather than his own.

    Sonar from ROTF

    Skystalker from ROTF

    Mindwipe from ROTF

    Darksteel from DoTM

    FoC Airraid

    HFTD Lockdown.

    We should compare line ups after the Fallen is out. Crankcase may not look good. But in my stories most of these folks are from some long forgotten faction, and the Crankcase's are kind of like foot soldiers. Very evil looking. Very demonic. Pretty much shock and awe.

    GDO Laserbeak is another too. And is easier to find and cheaper that ROTF Skystalker.
