    Just, wondering if anyone maybe had a collection made of ONLY Decepticon Leaders. Past & present. And if so which Decepticon Leaders make the cut when it comes to your collection? I'm sure Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream will be on the majority of the lists. I guess I'm interested in thoughts on some of the obscure leaders of the Decepticons (which would likely be custom or third-party for most obscure Decepticon) and your thoughts on placement in such a display. So, if space WERE an issue in such a display. What 10 Decepticon Leaders would make the cut for you?

    [EDIT] Is your line-up based on a specific continuity...or...based on some personal canon..???...

    either way; i'm not sure who i'd use for repurposing off hand. maybe Titans Return Alpha Trion with a custom head. hmm, i like that idea...

    a few years ago i repurposed the quad changer Darth Vader for Liege Maximo. my wife got me the figure and i found him to be funky and fun and interesting enough to stick on a shelf with miscellaneous big figures like G1 Sixshot

    The problem is the deceptecons are not just one faction there split and this is why they have big problems, espelly in the comics you have Megatron running his team while you have darkmount and ratbat on cybertron and then you have scrop bludgeon and thunderwing who all seem to be fighting to be in control, but this is just in the marvel comics, in g1 its megatron all the way, then there is idw with the fallen, things are messy.

    but to me

    unicron
    the fallen
    megatron
    galvatron
    scrop
    bludgeon
    thunderwing
    ratbat
    starscream
    soundwave
    bombshell

    As Liege Maximo did you have him as leader of Jhiaxus' Cybertronians...now that he is Megazarek do you have plans for a new Liege Maximo in your collection...

    I have him Leige Maximo leading Jhiaxus's troops, but I didn't like the idea to much. I changed Armada Megatron to Megazarak as the first Decepticon who was overthrown by Megatron. The leader of Jhiaxus's troops is now Megaplex, with his lieutenant being Nightscream. Obviously, they are clones of Megatron and Starscream respectively. Once I get a new Leige Maximo, he will be one of the thirteen Primes. Planning on getting TLK Voyager Megatron as Leige Maximo when he comes out, though I'm considering him as The Fallen.
