    Prime Vehicons
    RTS/Generations Junkions

    The Beast Machines toys are abominations.

    LIES!

    The Beast Machines Vehicons are actually pretty good toys. The Cycle Drones are awesome and the Tank drones would be amazing if they were upsized to the Mega pricepoint.

    My list would go:

    DX Vehicon (Prime)
    Generations Scourge
    Cycle Drone
    Divebomb (Energon)
    Tank Drone
    Strong Arm (Energon)
    Battle Ravage (Energon)
    Doomlock/ Cruellock (Energon)
    Skydive? (Omnicon Jetfire lookalike from Energon)
    Scrapmetal (Cybertron)

    i really liked the energon omnicons. they were small and most of them (read: all of them except the cruellock mold) were really fun.

    In a scale of 1 to 10, the Vehicon definately deserves the 10M mark.:thumb 

    I personally find the Wrek Gars/Junkions to be less than spectacular. Sold mine off and don't regret it at all.

    Here's my list:
    1 PRiD Vehicon- brilliant figure that looks awesome in multiples.
    2 RtS Scourge- not a fan of G1, but it does look good in group shots
    3 BM tank Drone- would be awesome larger
    4 BM Bike Drone- perfect as Thrust
    5 Energon Divebomb- BIRDS!
    6 Cyberverse Vehicon- simple, but really nice in large numbers.

    Actually, that was Skyblast. Anyway...

    - TFP Cyberverse Vehicon is the perfect army builder - cheap and widely available.
    - Generations Scourge and Junkhead, if you're a fan of G1 S3.
    - HFTD Insecticon

    And on a somewhat random note, I've always dreamed of army-building PCC Heavytread.

    Admittedly, I only owned a few vehicons (Scavenger, Mirage, Obsidian, and Spystreak), but I also had the main Maximal cast except Nightscream and Silverbolt, and I thought they all pretty much sucked ass. Just my opinion, though, and not the gospel. If other people liked them, that's cool.

    Classics Seekers. Between Henkei, Hasbro, and knockoffs I have 24 displayed, 22 of them unique decoes. And I still want more.

    Junkions. Have 6 total at the moment. United Wreck-Gar with 2 RTS Wreck-Gars and 3 Gen. Junkheaps. Displayed so the 3 riders are all unique.

    Sweeps. Not bad. Have 3 led by United Scourge. Kept them with the wings closed to differentiate from the open-winged Scourge, and have one different from the other two as it's displayed to be possessed by Ghost Starscream.

    Pretty much all I have for troops built.

    No particular order I'd go with Generations Sweeps, Junkion & CHUG Seekers.

    For me it's:

    1. PRID Vehicon
    2. Junkions
    3. Generations Sweeps
    4. Energon Divebombs
    5. Energon Ravages
    6. DOTM Crankcase - I know he's a unique character but one can easily army build him and do some simple customization such as removing the dreads to get a generic movie Con.
    7. G1 Insections - I should have more of the reissues to build an army
    8. G1 Reflector - dies anyone army build them? I remember watch a G1 toon 'war dawn' where there were a lot of them
    9. CHUG Seeker moulds

    HA Basic Thunderhead/Crosshairs makes a good troopbuilder too as you can vary modes between its mobile artillery mode and pseudo-Ridley's Power Loader from Aliens mode.

    I have a video if that works. Not the best look at them, but it's what I've got.

    Obligatory Collection Update Video Update - YouTube

    Skip up to about 3:15 for the Season 1/2 shelf Seekers and then 5:30 for the Season 3 shelf Seekers.

    Since the video, I've bought the older yellow/gold cartoon Sunstorm for the top shelf and placed the orange comic Sunstorm down with the lower shelf Seekers.
