    Is there a good Decepticon counterpart to MP Optimus Prime other than MP Megs?

    Huh? Take away Megs and all that's left is the seeker mold. Take your pick of color.

    MP Starscream's not too bad, but is considerably smaller.

    I'd think only leaders would serve as a good counterpart, leaving only Leader Megs from RotF (as the movie 1 leader megs shouldn't exist), or Animated Megatron, which has a vastly different style and would look a bit out of place if you're going for that whole "realistic" feel.

    Once the Black MP prime is released, you can just pretend he's actually Nemesis Prime and they'll look great together!

    Leader Brawl from movie 1 isn't too bad. He's a bit shorter, but taller than the seeker mold. The style isn't excatly the same, but it fits better than animated. The thing I dislike most is the head. It just doesn't convey...well...much of anything. I haven't found a good replacement though.

    Try a normal G1 Shockwave

    Around the same size and in the comics he was (briefly) the decepticon leader

    I actually have a G1 Shockwave displayed with my MP Prime and MP Megs, and G1 Shockwave is no where close to the same size. I would say Shockwave at most comes up to Prime's windows in robot mode.

    Maybe Energon Galvatron? He's shorter than Prime, but wider, so he feels about as massive. Plus he's just an impressive figure.

    Or if you want something that towers over Prime, maybe Cybertron Supreme Starscream?

    This is what I'd like to know. It's really the only good counterpart to MP Optimus. Everything else is too big or too small.

    The Junkion Exchange has awesome prices on TFs. I got my MP Megs and the add-on kit, MISB, for about $140.

    Ok, he is a bit smaller, but Animated Leader Megatron is possibly my favorite Megatron Mold and while he does have a more curvy aesthetic, there's no disputing that he IS Megatron and they both have a flat look when compared to movie stuff.
