    First of all, I will say that I do not like the PCC transformers - the 5 pack series even less so.

    However, being the F1 fan that I am, I had to pick up PCC Leadfoot because his alt mode looked so cool. It is basically an F1/Dragster on steroids. Pinpoint isn't too great, but that's not why I got the toy.

    Now I feel like I should at least get ONE decepticon PCC just to balance out my collection. So which one do you guys recommend?

    Sledge is crazy-awesome. Between his bucket arm, buzzsaw and minicon he's got a lot of playability in alt mode. Plus he's got a pissy face.

    I did the same thing, in a way. Not bothered about F1 (although Leadfoot's alt mode is a nice one for a PCC) but the reason I bought him was because I saw him cheap and really love the way he looks in robot mode with his big hands formed by exhaust pipes :D 

    Since then, I've also picked up Huffer and will be getting Grimstone and the Dinobots (sounds like a 60s band!) in the next few days.

    I'm feeling the same thing that my Autobots do need at least one Decepticon to face off against. Moreso I would prefer a combined 5 pack as that would at least make it look like an almost fair fight. Sadly, after watching numerous video reviews of what's out there for the 'cons, I've been very disappointed.

    I want one that will at least be able to stand and not have his toes/heels collapse due to them not being load-bearing.

    I got the Dinobots, and I think I'll balance it out with Spastic.

    Undertow's looking pretty great, too, if you don't mind waiting awhile.

    So you don't like PCC figures, yet you own one, you like it, and you're planning on getting another one? Cool.
    Anyways, I'm thinking Sledge or Icepick, maybe Skyhammer if you think he looks good.

    Grimstone is a great figure, and I dig the overall deco and how cohesive the Dinobots are as a group.

    I don't have it yet, but Heavy Tread looks like an awesome figure as well. That's one I'll be picking up as soon as I see it.

    Samurai? I guess, but the helmet is based on a Firefighter's helmet.

    Skyhammer or Sledge are the two best Decepticons so far in the two pack assortments. Five packs, Constructicons all the way.

    Heavy Tread looks to be the best 2 pack so far. (Although, I said the same thing about Double Clutch)

    Yeah I know, I'm coming off as an idiot. lol

    Anyways, it seems there is a much more diverse range of suggestions rather than just sledge. Maybe I'll go watch some reviews.

    I'd say Smolder. He's a fun-ish toy, and if you don't like his minicon, it makes a PERFECT axe for WFC Prime.
