    Well, to be fair, I would have to say which sort of Decepticons are we talking about because some of the different iterations had some very different MOs. But on the aesthetic front a lot of the time the 'Cons do have some of the better color schemes and altmodes. In some instances they do at times lack in unique personality. I suppose I would have to say my favorite 'Cons are from TF Prime, even the Vechicons at least seemed to be "alive," with G1 in second, and the Baycons dead last because for the most part they really were just caricatures or nothing but exploding bodies.

    Yeah I'm a fan of the Decepticons, I think Transformers is the only franchise I like where I like the villains more than the heroes.

    Same. Always found myself rooting for them in G1, love how they're represented in IDW as complex characters, not just typical "bad guys".

    Almost always love the cons more than the bots. The cons make the show for me, especially in G1.

    I'm more of a Predacon fan than a Decepticon fan, though RID Scourge is my favorite Decepticon.

    Love the cons,especially the power hungry versions in the Marvel comics. Cannot beat a good villain. Best part is that half of them are in purple:D :D

    Don't love them, but they're a necessary evil... besides without the 'Evil Decepticons', we wouldn't have the Heroic Autobots...
    .... or a franchise... or animated series' or toys, comics or movies or... etc. etc. ... :D 




    I know you mean flipping in the POLL choices, right? :D

    Honestly, I always prefer the bad guys over the good guys. They're a lot more essential to the story, I feel.

    I dont like the Decepticon ideology (alltough the distrust against organics in IDW seems wellfounded and the source of their uprising was too) but i think they have the best designs altmodes and colorshemes for the most part, the Autobots are almost always cars.
    I think its sad that just because hasbro arbitrarily made them the bad guys the get so little focus in fiction beyond the usual suspects.

    i put Decepticon symbols on my car, so, yes, I love the Decepticons but because I don't consider them villains per se, but I guess anti-hero would be the right word.

    The Decepticons led by Megatron were the ones who exposed the corruption in Cybertron within the caste system and it took the decay of Cybertron and the rise of the Decepticons to bring this out in the open. As someone posted above, the source of their grievance was legitimate and just.

    With that said, I like them because I know they had Cybertron's best interests at heart. The war was a necessary evil that needed to be fought. And look at it, the war ultimately brought about the restoration of Cybertron and Cybertron finally being unified (I still don't know what to make of the whole Combiner Wars series though and where it's leading) and the corruption eliminated, if not minimized, and the abolition of the caste system.
