Which Troops Do You Affiliate With Which Leader?

Discussion in 'Transformers Toy Discussion' started by BScorpinok75, Aug 18, 2015.


Do You Have "Splintered Factions" In Your Collection?

  1. Yes

  2. No

  3. Stop Asking Me Questions

  1. Sparked by me having "splintered factions" in my collection along with a small conversation started around page-11> of Legends LG-16 Slipstream and LG-17 Blackarachnia In Hand of the Legends LG-16 Slipstream and LG-17 Blackarachnia In Hand. I thought this would be a cool question to toss out here to fellow TFWers. Also, I was thinking you have different set-ups in the various cartoons as well as various comic allegiances. Everyone likely won't adhere to the norm of Megatron led Decepticons and Optimus Prime led Autobots. So, guys and gals, "Which Troops Do You Affiliate With Which Leader" in your collections?

    NOTE: I am basing this on figures in your collection...or...those you plan to add...along with maybe an explanation why the affiliation is the way it is...I'll get back on here later to share my allegiance rundown gradually...

    in my world, Megatron was the leader of the combined Decepticon/Predacon alliance with Gigatron (RiD Megatron) the direct leader of the predacons. Energon Scorponok (in my world g1 scorponok rebuilt) led a splinter faction of the decepticons from Armada and Energon as well as the decepticon headmasters, powermasters, and targetmasters

    Therefore, each side has two leaders.

    in my world, impactor gains an "Evolution Mode".a mode that is basically "super sayian",but is much less common. much similar to optimus becoming white,impactor's purple turns green. this new found power allowed the wreckers survival rate go to 90%, eventually the wreckers grew to the point that they need a small planet as a base of operations.

    as for the decepticons, shockwave has his own planet full of obedient creatures-from-the-universe-turned-cybertronian. eventually i'll give shockwave an Evolution mode, caused by unnatural means. also, grand scourge is the leader of the quintessens (by force).

    no splintered factions here, but if i did i'd have slipstream as seeker commander and strika as a high ranking decepticon commander. following starscream's death at megatron's hand, slipstream takes over as decepticon second in command.

    Junkions 12/15

    RTS Wreck-Gar

    (EHY Scrap/Scrap-Iron)
    GEN Junkheap/Junkyard

    (CW Wreck-Gar) as Short Junkion - Transformers Wiki renamed Rubble or Odss & Ends (haven't decided)
    Wasteoid Gamma


    NOTES: Based on a bit of Dreamwave, IDW and Shattered Glass fiction. The vast majority of the Junkion race are cannibalistic versions of their former selves who devolved over time from being a rich and prosperous yet extremely wasteful race. They tend to communicate in the form of computer error messages. The Junkion tribe led by Wreck-Gar and a scattered few others whom inhabited the area known by most as the "Wrong-Side-of-the-Tracks" did not suffer the same fate as the others. They became a resourceful bunch as the area they inhabited was located in "The Landfill". This area served as the dumping ground via "Spacebridge" for the planet Cybertronian due to a contract agreed upon by the former "Junkion Council". As previously stated the Junkion tribe are led by Wreck-Gar. His top lieutenants are Junkheap/Junkyard & Scrap-Heap/Scrap-Iron. The members of the Junkion tribe specialize in several fields from medical to scientific. Their battleship, "The Minnow" serves as their source for interplanetary transportation and as a first line of defense from invaders. The mercenary Deitrus (who pilots "The Reclamation") and his muscle Salvage look to raise enough capital to build a large enough army to overthrow Wreck-Gar as leader of the Junkions.

    (I have several spare Wreck-Gar & Junkheap figures...and...3p Junkion parts...I've just yet to decide how I'll put them together)...(haven't decided yet what I'll do for Nancy or Detritus (or if he'll stay aligned with the tribe)...(will repurpose the recent CW Wreck-Gar as the Short Junkion from G1...I've decided I'll name him Odds'n'Ends)



    Quintessonian Federation ??/??

    NOTES: The neo-G1 Quintesson - Transformers Wiki Federation is led by the Supreme Imperial Magistrate Derodomontatus...they are descendants or quite possibly the cteation of Quintus Prime - Transformers Wiki of "The Thirteen"...at some point in the early stages of their existence the Quintessons tricked "The Thirteen" into stasis...as the beginning of their plan to take over Cybertron...this led to the mis-belief that the Quintessons were the creators of the Transformers...and...the destruction or sometimes reformating of any who were deemed dangerous...the Supreme Imperial Magistrate has a detail of no less than ten Allicon or Overcharge at all times...most other Judges are usually accompanied with two...Bailiffs, Executioners and Prosecutors are numerous and replaceable...though there are a chosen few that have been given the Judiciary upgrade...Inquirata is the Quintessons Chief Science Officer...all other Scientist answer directly to him...the Quintessons Science Division can credit themselves with implementing mass production models...as well as using DNA from lifeforms indenginous to the planet as well as frankensteining and reversing the tech that allows Nexus Prime to split into five components to create the Seacons...the dark halls of the Security Division are monitor by the outdated Quintesson Security Guards...the Quintesson base of operations is on the planet Quintessa...which is patrolled by legions of Sharkticons...wild and those aligned to the Quintessons...led by the notorious Gnaw...the Quintessons are known to employ various bounty hunters and mercenaries...they also have a shaky alliance with the Cybertronian Empire...

    (currently I've several yet unnamed Impossible Toys Quintessons...as well as...T/L Oilmaster, TR Black Shadow, ROTF Lockdown, T/L Barricade, LG Blackarachnia, LG Slipstream, TR Gnaw (X5 TR Gnaw as Sharkticons) & T30 Doubledealer who are aligned with the Quintessons...roster to be supplemented with other Bounty Hunter or Gangster types that fit nowhere else...this is were I'd love to be able to add some Allicon or Overcharge drone-type figures to troopbuild...and...fill out the ranks of my actual display...would most likely add Seacons to this group...)

    I have Several Neo-G1 Factions that do battle with the numerous Movie figures.
    Traditional Autobots led by Optimus Prime with Ultra Magnus SiC, then later Ultra Magnus led with Bumblebee as SiC. Then when Orion Pax was killed, Ultra Magnus brokered an Alliance with Megatron to hunt down Starscream
    The Autobot Defense Army led by Prowl with Ironhide SiC
    The Autobot Special Operation Forces led by Drift, then later Springer with Drift as SiC

    The Honorcons led by Megatron
    The Decepticons led by Galvatron, then Thunderwing, then Starscream
    The Combaticons led by Shockwave

    Starscream went on to conquer Cybertron with his own Army after Shockwave abandoned him to be destroyed by Optimus Prime.

    Sometime later Jetfire used the Combiner Tech created by Shockwave to create some subfactions that would aid in the defense of Cybertron in Ultra Magnus' absence.

    The neo-G1 units influenced by Dreamwaves Ultracon - Transformers Wiki, stationed at Polyhex, under Senator Ratbat and Marvels Mayhem Attack Squad - Transformers Wiki, stationed on the Empirion, under Bludgeon...have formed a shaky alliance out of necessity...I would like to add a neo-G1 Quake to the crew under Ratbat....a neo-G1 Venom, Barrage & Ransack to join the eventual Chop Shop...the Deluxe Insecticons have no pure allegiance to either Ratbats' Ultracons or the Mayhems'...as well as a neo-G1 Flywheels & Stranglehold to fill out Bludgeons crew...T/L Bludgeon will replace the current Bludgeon in my collection...the MAS answers directly to Thunderwing...(due to the Double Targetmaster and Triggercons being split amongst both units...as well as the Deluxe Insecticons being officially apart of both squads I decided to just basically to tie together both factions in my head-canon...

    It depends.

    If I were building a bible for a new G1 universe, I'd probably create a chain of command. This is a little rough since its been a long time since I've thought about it..

    Optimus Prime - Supreme Commander
    Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Metalhawk*, Star Saber, Dai Atlas - Subcommanders

    Then you have Prowl, Grimlock, Silverbolt, Hot Spot, Countdown, and the other individual team leaders as the next rank. For the most part, everyone falls into slots pretty easily under these guys.

    NOTES: The Cybertronian (faction) - Transformers Wiki are a sub-faction of my neo-G2 Transformers that are co-led by Liege Maximo & Jhiaxus...top lieutenants Rook & Mindset command their respective squads..."they were created by the rediscovery of "budding", a mitotic means of reproduction that diminishes the influence of Primus's life force...as a result, the Cybertronians as a whole are marked by a distinct amorality..,they share many of the philosophies of their Decepticon ancestors but otherwise do not take kindly to being associated with them...the Cybertronians view themselves as something better, a stage of Transformer life far surpassing the others...in fact, their self-appointed pedestal is so high that they can barely conceive of non-Transformers as alive at all...they left Cybertron some time ago and have since dedicated themselves to cyberforming other planets, eliminating natives with clinical detachment" - from tfwiki)...their base of operation remains unknown...their army still growing...they are aligned with their partners in "Drone Technology", the Quintessons...this is where a neo-G1 Monstructor or neo-G2 Gobots would align...as well as...a MW Soundwave, MW Prowl and MW Hubcap to round out the Machine Wars updates minus Megatron and Optimus Prime...would likely toss in older Classics figures that are displaced by better updates...but...I've decided to keep...

    In my mind, I have a certain chain of command: Megatron on top with Generals all reporting to him. The Generals are; Starscream, Galvatron, Shockwave. Starscream commands all aerial warriors (Seekers, Triplechangers, everyone with wings. ). He's more feared by his legion ,in my world, than he is portrayed in official stories. Shockwaves commands all the Cybertron based bots. Galvatron (alt universe not Meg's) controls Cyclonus and the Sweeps. Combiner leaders answer directly to Megatron but otherwise are lieutenant level. Soundwave and his family obviously answer only to Megatron.

    The Autobot leadership starts with Optimus on top and his generals Ultra Magnus and Cerebros. Magnus is 2nd in command and Cerebros leads all Headmasters and Targetmasters.

    Its a mix of both. The idea basically sparks with each new toyline. Whenever there is a new toyline to come out that doesn't have an official story (like the Neo-G1 figures) I give it a personal fiction with some ideas borrowed from IDW and Sunbow. However with the older toy lines like G1 and beast wars they play out closer to the fiction presented. Then when the Club started doing their multiverse story I figure why not kick it up a notch and make entire continuity families go to war with each other.

    From there evolved the idea that with the introduction of a new toyline, that new line had to battle with the old toyline. If the old line was continued in concept, like with the classics, then the line would continue to flourish. However if it ended permenantly like Transformers Prime then it would lose to the new toyline.

    If you'd be interested a more detailed outline of key players in each faction just shoot me a PM

    based on a command staff model

    Decepticons: because of treacherous power plays and plotting, the leadership chain of command is either purged and replaced or rival factions splintering off. the arrival of Galvatron and Unicron caused further splintering.

    Megatron - Commander
    Starscream - Deputy Commander (appointed by convenience to get the loyalty of most Seekers, although some teams maintain loyalty to others, like Rainmakers to Shockwave)
    Shockwave - G3, G4, G5, G9 and Chief of Staff - plans, strategy, supply and organization
    Soundwave - G1, G2 and G6 - personnel, intelligence and communication

    Former staff:
    Overlord - former G5 and G4 (supply,) now leads Powermasters, some Pretenders, and misc. "mercenary" focused 'cons.

    Deszaras - former G5 (plans and strategy,) now leads Liokaiser, Dinoking, Monstructor. open to a negotiated peace with the Autobots.

    Bludgeon - apocalyptic cult leader, wants Unicron back.

    Thunderwing - overly-ambitious badass.

    Black Shadow - Decepticon equivalent to Jabba the Hutt/Pablo Escobar.
