    Oh, if you're not averse to KO's, CHMS Black Starscream would be a good addition as well. It would give you some Seeker-representation.

    Again, thanks for the suggestions!

    I have Vortex, but I have him earmarked as Whirl. I have Scourge, I as much as possible I don't want to use Black OPs.

    Too classic-y!

    Yeah, I have Shadow Commander. I might just use him...

    Awesome! I really considered Silas Breakdown, but I think Vehicon is enough representation for Prime.

    That Transformerland update was very timely. I just ordered Animated Black Arachnia, DOTM Deluxe Crankcase and Cyberverse Hatchet. I also ordered BB & Starscream from eBay.

    I think my quest is now done. Thank you for all your suggestions. Now to wait for everything to arrive. I'll post a pic of the complete line up then. :) 

    Not sure if I'll use him, but to me the perfect personification of evil is this guy right here...

    If you ever change your mind, I have a MISB PCC Crankcase. I'll let it go for a good price or a trade :)

    Crankcase is a LOT more menacing than Huffer. See if anyone will trade you one for the other.

    I'm not knocking Animated, but you could always go RotF Lockdown and maybe Universe Blackarachnia if you want to keep a more gnarly look.

    Oh, wait, quest done. Cool!

    Wow, Universe Blackarachnia looks creepy and cool indeed. I did not know about her until I saw your post, though...

    ^ Right? Your thread caught my eye because I'm planning to assemble a couple more groups of weird 'cons out of the old Universe line and some other odds and ends. I'm getting Jhiaxus to lead one faction and I'm trying to make a deal for some of the Ultras to be my Unicron's Heralds. There are some seriously nice decos out there on old Beast molds.

    I just "discovered" Uni Blackarachnia myself and I'm trying to track one down. It's reasonably priced on EBay but I'd rather trade for one.

    I'm amazed no one even mentioned Sky Warp.

    I did mention considering him on the first page, but thought him too..plain. If I was going to get a Skywarp deco, I'd get MMC's Warper.

    Can't wait for these guys to fuck my Wreckers up. I would not even have KNOWN about, much less considered, them were it not for your help.

    I'm also itching to give Crankcase's dull gray bits a bit of a paint job. And from reviews, the superglue treatment for the joints as well

    I have a shelf that might be of interest to you. I built a team of black repaints and customs for my United Straxus to lead...

    Started with these:

    You definitely need this guy though:

    Hope that helped..

    If you can, I'm not sure if it's been mentioned, but try and get a Crankcase with his middle finger intact and not clipped or remolded

    GDO Laserbeak's pretty cool too, especially if the red & silver don't conflict with the aim.

    Very, very cool man. I have the Black OP repaints, but I don't want to include them in the team. I'm thinking about getting a Shadow Scythe, but it's pretty expensive. Who's that figure beside the custom Warpath? He looks very interesting.

    Aw man, I wasn't able to check if I got the one with the middle finger intact. I sure hope so. But if not, it's okay, I'll just consider it "battle damage."

    Yeah, I like this mold. I prefer Skystalker's darker deco, though. I hope I can find him for a good price.

    From what I hear he's not that hard to come by.
