    Thanks for all the awesome suggestions! The only figures that I'm (almost) certainly getting are BB and Starscream. To diversify, right now I'm thinking of getting one figure from each distinct line or aesthetic, except maybe G1. I already have the following represented:

    Classics: Skyshadow
    Prime: FE Vehicon
    G2/Unicron Trilogy: BB and Starscream

    I think I just need one Movie figure and one Beast figure. And for these, I'm considering

    Movie: HA Barricade, ROTF Ravage, Mindwipe + Laserbeak
    Beast: Universe Razorclaw, Dark Fang Wolf

    I looked at pics and reviews for Crankcase and Lockdown, and I don't really like them, haha. Sideways is okay, but I think the hip ball joints are prone to looseness.

    What do you guys think? Or maybe you can suggest other awesome, black, evil-looking movie and beast figures. Thanks again! :)

    You can't go without Universe Stormcloud, or possibly universe skyfall. Just because sky shadow may need a wingman, and their both ultra class.

    But I prefer Stormcloud.

    Go with Skystalker(Or laserbeak) and Mindwipe for Movieverse. The two have alt modes that can dock with each other to boot.

    Might just go with Skyfall if I see a good deal :) 

    Yeah, I'm looking for a pair right now. Let's compare line ups once The Fallen gets released (end of the month according to my retailer).

    Thanks guys!

    I'd go for the Movie 1 Stockade. He's a burley stocky fellow with a functioning punching gimmick.

    And Mindwipe+Skystalker is a great pair of figures.

    For Movieverse figures can't really go wrong with either Mindwipe+Laserbeak or Movie 2007 Stockade.

    Universe Razorclaw would fit quite nicely since the mold looked evil enough before they made it black. Plus he'd add some nice muscle to your group.

    If you want some smaller figures to maybe use as scouts or whatever there's also DOTM Legends Crankcase. Overbite (Classics) - Transformers Wiki would also make for a nice addition if you can find him or his team for a good price. Iron Claw - Transformers Wiki is another nice little black repaint.

    I was going to name Machine Wars Starscream, but then again a brick wouldn't fit Classics line up

    Being as it seems my suggestion was seemingly completely ignored last time, I feel compelled to add a picture... If that doesn't tick all the boxes, I give up.

    I like to think Tomahawk with a new head makes a fairly decent Tracer.

    What about the PCC version of Crankcase? He's very black and menacing in combined mode.

    I seriously had to look several times at that picture, as I actually thought that was a picture from my collection! Mine is arranged in an almost identical fashion!

    Sorry about that, apparently that was Galaxy Force Soundblaster aka Logos Prime, an exclusive. I remember seeing him in one of the Photo threads and thought he looked pretty awesome :D  wasn't too familiar with the Cybertron/GF releases and thought he was a Cybertron release as well.

    How about the black/orange repaint of Energon Snowcat? An older mold, but fits that Halloweenish scheme of the Fallen.

    Galaxy force soundblaster sounds about right.

    Why not Darkside Megs but redesignate him as Archforce?

    Universe Snowcat would be a good choice too, in those kind of situations a clown can be good for morale.

    As usual, awesome suggestions guys! This exercise is proving to be harder that I thought. Yeah, to make the lineup more interesting, I decided to really diversify and include ANIMATED.

    Here's my shortlist:

    BW BB & Starscream
    2007 Movie Stockade
    HA Barricade
    Animated Blackarachnia
    Animated Lockdown
    FOC Soundblaster

    I've considered PCC Crankcase, and he would be awesome especially since he can interact with the MT Paladin/Chaos upgrade, but I already have PCC Huffer for that...

    I'll comb stores later for what I can find. Wish me luck. :)

    How about Nemesis Prime and the Shadow Commander set. Should work well. It's not really an Optimus Prime mold with the add ons.

    Maybe Shadow Scythe also.
