    Shockwave. Course dunno how big of an issue it is. My Alt Decepticon force is a team of 3: Shockwave, Dead End and Ravage.

    Shockwave, but it's not hard for him to lead when the rest of my Decepticons consist of Dead End, Ravage, and... that's actually all of them.

    *EDIT* Wow, what a coincidence. *points to Brandon's post*

    I have Nemy Prime, Shockwave, Decepticharge (who I call Drag Strip), Swindle, & Ravage. I won't open Nemy so I guess SW is my leader.

    I like the idea of the 'Con leader being a woman.

    Nemesis Prime, but then I'm a basard cuz Alt Optimus leads my Autobots not 20th Prime.

    Nemesis, Swindle, Corvette Ravage, Dead End, Decepticharge and Shockwave are still vastly outnumbered....

    14 to 6 are shitty odds.

    Shockwave. Although MP Starscream would make a good replacement...

    The leader confusion is even more reason why there needs to be an alternator megatron.

    Shockers, natch.

    Not that I have a Nemesis Prime, mind you, but even if I did ol' one-eye'd still be the leader.

    Got a NP, but I still think of Shockwave as the highest-ranking Decepticon. And the littlest.... which is frankly kind of cool.

    I finally pared my Alt collection from four to one... who is decidedly not a 'Con. :(  However, to make up for all the other collections out there where the 'Cons are outnumbered, I'll be sure to pick up a Shockwave eventually, and probably the new Ravage too, so they can pick on poor, stranded Jazz. :D

    Alt Nemesis Prime for me too. Alt Optimus is just an 'alt body' for 20th Prime. Much the same way Gobot Optimus was an alternate body for G2 Laser/Octane Optimus Prime.

    I have Decepticharge (yeah, I go with Drag Strip too), Ravage, Swindle, Laserwave (I call him Shockwave, screw it), Nemesis Prime, and Dead End. My leader is definitely Laserwave. I always figured Nemesis Prime was just some brute with the same power as Optimus though I have no source material to back that up. 20th Anniversary Optimus leads my Autobots, Masterpiece Starscream will take over the Decepticons once he arrives.

    It's got to be Shockwave. I believe I have all the BT/Alt 'cons in general release - Dead End, Swindle, Decepticharge, Ravage, Shockwave and Nemesis Prime.

    The reason Shockers is the leader? All the others need to reach for their weapon. Shockwave has his on hand, so to speak. :)

    I have Shockwave as the leader of the Cons and that mainly casue Nemy is a clone meant only for kicking Bots asses.

    Who needs source material? Sounds good to me! :)  After all, they're toys...... it's hallowed toy tradition that you let your imagination take precedence over whatever mythos the toy company might try to force on you.

    Huh, I wonder if there is anyone out there who DOESN'T think of Decepticharge as Drag Strip instead. I know I do, and it seems most people here do. It's funny I keep thinking "I wish they would just release the rest of the Stunticons, they've already got two!" And then I have to step back and say, well, no, that's not really technically true..... :eek:

    My Alt. Con leader is Shockwave. I have all the Alt. releases, including Nemesis Prime, and an MP Starscream on preorder, but Shockwave is the only one I could see being the leader.
    Nemesis Prime just seems like the of the muscle of group, but not much brainpower.
    Starscream, although very powerful, I just see screwing things up very often.
    Ravage, Decepticharge, Deadend, and Swindle, to me just feel like cronies.

    To me Shockwave is the easy chioce, all the other cons combined just would not equal his intelligence.

    I just have my Alts on display and hardly fiddle with them, so they don't really have 'leaders' in my eyes per se, but it would have to go to Shockwave, even if I did have Nemesis Prime.

    Shockwave. MP Starscream is his second in command, although forever scheming his way to improve his standing in the chain of command.
