Thanks for all the awesome suggestions! The only figures that I'm (almost) certainly getting are BB and Starscream. To diversify, right now I'm thinking of getting one figure from each distinct line or aesthetic, except maybe G1. I already have the following represented:

Classics: Skyshadow
Prime: FE Vehicon
G2/Unicron Trilogy: BB and Starscream

I think I just need one Movie figure and one Beast figure. And for these, I'm considering

Movie: HA Barricade, ROTF Ravage, Mindwipe + Laserbeak
Beast: Universe Razorclaw, Dark Fang Wolf

I looked at pics and reviews for Crankcase and Lockdown, and I don't really like them, haha. Sideways is okay, but I think the hip ball joints are prone to looseness.

What do you guys think? Or maybe you can suggest other awesome, black, evil-looking movie and beast figures. Thanks again!

You can't go without Universe Stormcloud, or possibly universe skyfall. Just because sky shadow may need a wingman, and their both ultra class.

But I prefer Stormcloud.

Go with Skystalker(Or laserbeak) and Mindwipe for Movieverse. The two have alt modes that can dock with each other to boot.

Might just go with Skyfall if I see a good deal

Yeah, I'm looking for a pair right now. Let's compare line ups once The Fallen gets released (end of the month according to my retailer).

Thanks guys!

I'd go for the Movie 1 Stockade. He's a burley stocky fellow with a functioning punching gimmick.

And Mindwipe+Skystalker is a great pair of figures.

For Movieverse figures can't really go wrong with either Mindwipe+Laserbeak or Movie 2007 Stockade.

Universe Razorclaw would fit quite nicely since the mold looked evil enough before they made it black. Plus he'd add some nice muscle to your group.

If you want some smaller figures to maybe use as scouts or whatever there's also DOTM Legends Crankcase. [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.] would also make for a nice addition if you can find him or his team for a good price. [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.] is another nice little black repaint.

I was going to name Machine Wars Starscream, but then again a brick wouldn't fit Classics line up

Being as it seems my suggestion was seemingly completely ignored last time, I feel compelled to add a picture... If that doesn't tick all the boxes, I give up.

I like to think Tomahawk with a new head makes a fairly decent Tracer.

What about the PCC version of Crankcase? He's very black and menacing in combined mode.
