    Got Warpath tonight, and went digging for a gun to give him, because...well, you know...he needs more guns. I found the perfect match in G1 Hun-Grrr's (however it's spelled) Sonic Stun Gun. The gray is a pretty close match, though not perfect. More importantly, there's plenty of clearance for Warpath's huge forearms.

    EDIT: Finally got a new camera; here's a picture:

    More guns are always good.

    I have a loose pair of Henkei Dark Skyfire's rifle and when split Warpath can hold it, and even combined he can hold it too! I'll try to get pics up soon.

    I removed both shoulder weapons on mine. The only gun Warpath needs is the one in his chest!

    Exactly.

    If anything, give him a me-lee weapon for each hand. The cannon for far off, a big 'ole mace for when the guy is too close to shoot with that big thang.

    Gotta agree. Honestly IMO Warpath looks weird with anything more.

    Right now, he's armed with Blesser. I intend to take a moment to really find out how much of a payload I can deploy him with.

    I took this for a different thread, but I might as well post it here, too:

    I'll never get it I suppose. We have all these amazing redesigns of classic characters and people want them to look more like the G1? Not trying to ridicule or mock. Just surprised.

    Warpath is fantastic. The Generations toy really looks the part. I wish he had more guns, like a cupola machine gun and a coaxial gun either under the barrel or next to it. Tanks nowdays usually have 4 weapon systems on them now(Commander's .50 cal, Loader GPMG, 7.62mm gun coaxial, main gun), so Warpath is definitely under-armed as far as tanks go!

    For me, it's not about trying to emulate the G1 look per se. It's that the cannon is such an iconic feature, and I feel that the presence of other weaponry only serves to reduce its significance.

    Fair enough. For me it sacrifices a tank's main feature...a rolling attack vehicle that can spearhead an attack or form a mobile fire support base for infantry. To remove the weapons for me is to eliminate the idea of what a tank is all about in the first place. May as well make him like an SPG or AA-vehicle rather than a tank.

    I found that Breacher's gun and Scourge's small gun look great clipped to his forearms. It looks like they are popping out of his arm, as many other transformers do.

    I also want to take some pics of him later with Jazz' speakers on him, so it will look like Odd Ball's tank from Kelly's Heroes!

    I don't think Warpath needs more guns, but if I would give him a a melee weapon it would be a Magnus hammer or double sided axe for up and personal smashing.

    How do you take the guns off, you must have to disassemble the chest.

    Yes. The shoulder weapons are screwed from inside his chest. To open his chest, you simply have to remove 3 screws beneath the turret, the trick being you have to pivot the turret around a little to reach them.
