It alsways bothered me in the cartoon that nobosy was willing to follow starscream at all. Why did megatron let him live then? Starscream was always messing up and betraying megatron so with no possible followers to avenge starscream`s death why did meagtron put up with him? At some point in the franchise i would love to see them adress the issue by having a small group (4 or 5) of decepticons who are co-conspirators with starscream. The starscream gang wouldn`t like him but they would have come to the conclusion that megatron is never gonna favor them over the more loyal decepticons and so if they follow starscream and he replaces megatron then all megatron`s lackey`s will be dealt with and they would become the seconds in command of all the decpticons. So they support starscream as it gives them a better chance for power than if they were the 5612th follower of megatron. This also means that they don`t neccesarily agree with or even like starscream and they all have their own plans for making their own power grabs from starscream but for now they are resollute in supporting starscream. Who would i have as followers of starscream? I`d prob just go for The Seekers (Thundercracker, Skywarp, Thrust, Ramjet and Dirge) and maybe another decpticon like Blitzwing. I`d go with them because although megatron has a cybertronian jet altform in the movie starscream is probably the better flier and i expect he would make allies with those who have similar talents to him. It alos would mean that the seekers and blitzwing would have some respect for starscream which other decpticons cannot comprehend as they are fliers themselves and thereby they are far more impressed by starscreams`s aerial dexterity and acrobatic talents. I just love the idea of a transformer`s movie with starscream leading a squadron of loyal decepticons into battle and then having the decepticons like a mafia gang with each prominent decpticons (megatron, starscream and soundwave) being flanked and surrounded by their supporters.
