    I recently acquired Leader Sentinel Prime, Jetwimg Optimus and Leader Ironhide. This left me with a very small amount of Decepticons and I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations?

    I'd recommend hunting down a Shockwave because I haven't seen any in stores for a long while. I feel he has a fairly decent design to minimal flaws unlike some.

    Shockwave is pretty good.

    Deluxe Starscream and Thundercracker are good toys.

    You can't go wrong with Laserbeak.

    Voyager Shockwave if you could find him. I got mine for only $10 on black Friday at target and it was the only one left!

    Big Deceps.... I would go for Starscream from HFTD line....very nice figure...other than that, Leader Class Brawl or even Jetfire to combine with Optimus Prime (I'm no sure if Jetwing OP can combine though)...

    Shockwave. He is a very fun figure. If you can find him, grab him. Him and Megatron are some of the figures I hardly see anymore.

    Since you seem to have gone with the Leader Class, if you are into them being in scale; Deluxe Laserbeak is a great figure. Just opened it when my son got one for Christmas and he is really cool. If you can find a deluxe Ravage, he fits in with that scale too. You might be able to find a Leader Starscream at Ross, TJ Maxx, or Marshall's if you get lucky too. If you don't care about scale, Megatron is awesome too. Haven't open Shockwave yet, but he looks cool in the box.

    Pick up Shockwave, Starscream, Thundercracker and Megatron. I own those guys and they're awesome. Also, pick up HFTD Leader Starscream. He's probably the best Movie Starscream figure out there.

    Voyager Megatron, Voyager Shockwave, Deluxe Barricade, and Deluxe Starscream. Alternatively on the latter, Deluxe Thundercracker and Leader Starscream.

    I agree that you can't go wrong with Leader Starscream, but you'd probably have to order him online. And I personally love DOTM Voyager Megatron :)

    Thank you very much for the suggestions everybody! I'm hoping to go hunting before the new year so hopefully I will find some of these figures. :D

    As far as the best DotM Decepticons, I would look for Shockwave and Crankcase. Leader Starscream is also very highly recommended.

    If it counts, Sentinel is a great toy. Get the leader class one and not the Voyager. That one is a shellformer.

    Good man. :) 

    I'd so mention ROTF Mixmaster (voyager), HTFD Banzaitron (voyager), Crankstart (scout) & Blackout (Cyberverse), but those aren't really DOTM figures. They're just baddies from the movie lines that I'm really glad to have.

    I can recommend: Voyager Shockwave, Voyager Megatron (which I renamed Onslaught, gets rid of the scale-issue) and Deluxe Crankcase. I don't own Deluxe Starscream and Deluxe Thundercracker though..

    The new deluxe Starscream (DOTM) looks really nice from what I've seen, and if I didn't already have the leader, I'd have bought it on sight. I think Thundercracker's colours look silly on the mold, but it'll just come down to preference. I like the grey with black designs.
