    Now that I've finally received G1 Shockwave....and united G1 Megatron and G1 Sounwave for a trio of badassery it got me thinking about how fans viewed different Decepticons. For some reason I'm not too crazy about Starscream...but I think my top five would be:


    5. Nemesis Prime - Black Convoy.....his toys are usually awesome, and a black version of Optimus Prime? I feel like his appeal is self explanatory.....
    4. Starscream - The betrayer....he's arrogant and sarcastic, and has a humanlike evil personality which is more than you can say for the vast majority of dogooder autobots.
    3. Shockwave - From his portrayal in the comics, and in TFA, the cold, cunning Shockwave has stomped major Autobot ass, usually all by his lonesome. Plus he looks awesome. And his g1 makes kewl pew pew sounds.
    2. Megatron - Megatron.......he killed Optimus Prime. Smacked around Starscream. He's a freaking walter p38 in alt mode. He's banned on airplanes. Megatron is badass on so many levels.....I can go on and on.
    1. Soundwave - I think the reason that the Decepticons can claim some measure of success if due to Soundwave and his minions. I love him so much, he has a simple yet elegant design, and his portrayal in TFP is so good I'm glad younger people can grow to love him too. I'll always be partial to g1 soundwave though...it's nice seeing him take on the constructicons without flinching. Plus he's a major threat in DOTM, without him, the decepticons wouldn't have gotten as far as they did. I always get angry at how we're supposed to buy Bee taking him out in one uppercut.....but that's neither here nor there.



    You don't even need a good reason for your choices....im just curious to hear them.

    Also in no particular order:

    Starscream, Soundwave, Shockwave, Blitzwing, and Devastator (assuming I can count him as 1 and not 6).

    I exclude the very obvious choice of Megatron because even tough he is awesome conceptually, I get pretty tired of the archetype megalomaniac character who's own arrogance foils his plans time and time again.

    I always thought that Nemisis Prime was Neutral and attacked either Decepticons or Autobots.

    Oh wait, never mind, that was Scourge. My bad!

    1: Soundwave: Iconic character, great design, great alt-mode, great gimmick.
    2: Ravage: He's a kitty!
    3: Thundercracker: I like Starscream, I do. But he's Starscream... which a better color scheme, more hilarious name, and occasionally a chainsaw!
    4: Swindle: I like the character and the figures.
    5: Bonecrusher: I happen to love the figures of the character, thus he eventually became pretty cool to me

    Scourge/Black Convoy is a Decepticon... he's not exactly friendly to the Predacons, but he's definitely a Decepticon.
