    Pretty simple topic, what are some of your favorite accessories that have come with a Transformer? I know that there are some figures that I bought solely for an accessory, or some figures that I wound up liking the accessory more than the figure.

    I'm not sure whether things like PCC Minicons would count as accessories, but let's go easy on them as I'm afraid this topic will just turn into a Minicon love-fest. ... which is reasonable as they're awesome, but... yeah.

    I'm going to have to say one of my favorites is Cyberverse Lunar Crawler's claw. It's fun in of itself, but it's a blast sticking it on other TFs.

    Also, I wound up liking MP-01's accessories more than the figure. His Matrix and Megatron got more use than the figure, who is just collecting dust in a bin at this point.

    Recon Ironhide's weapons - I've spammed enough threads already with pictures, but they are awesome. You can plug them into each other in various ways, and they're MechTech compatible (5mm plugs)

    Ultimate Optimus Trailer - This is the ultimate imagination toy. Again, I've spammed up enough threads with pics of this thing, but it works great with Deluxe's and Leader Optimus.

    Out of all toylines I'd say the accesories that come with the Takara Brave Police figures. I'm talking revolvers, badges, nunchuks, ninja sword, shotgun, handcuffs, the works.

    Strickly TF it's hard to choose because it's mostly guns. Recon Ironhide comes to mind but there are other heavily armed ones out there. Fireburst Prime and leader Sentinel come to mind as recent good ones.

    HftD Breacher's gun, Generations Skullgrin's missile pod, Wheeljack's rocket launcher.

    They're all extremely versatile and look great on just about any figure.

    I have Darkmount, I do love his missile pod. Skullgrin's looks much better, if only because it looks like it would blend much better since it doesn't have the red clip which clashes with 50% of figures.

    Animated Prowl's traffic light. I mean, it was a mace! With a string! Attached to a traffic light! What's cooler than that?

    RTS Jazz's speakers. That's what.

    Accessories have really shined lately IMO, they have just been knocking it out of the park.

    Clip weapons:
    Breacher's double cannon
    Backfire's and Whirl's guns.
    Straxus/Skullgrin's machine gun and rocket box

    Post weapons:
    Highbrow's guns. Easily worth more than the figure to me, considering I stick them on EVERYONE. They particularly enhance DotM Starscream and Vortex.
    Backfire
    Whirl
    Recon Ironhide's arsenal
    Drift's and Blurr's accessories
    DotM Sideswipe's cannon

    Other:
    All those blades that came with FP's Insecticons!

    Anything Venksta/Renderform's done
    Recon Ironhide's weapons
    Most of the Targetmaster minicons (especially the PCC Caliburst and Chainclaw molds)
    Some of the clip weapons that game with the DotM HA Basics (the gatling guns on Whirl and the guns on Backfire come to mind)

    The FP ninjasecticons have great weapons but can they be used by many figures?

    The FP Bruticus shotguns are awesome indeed.

    TFTM Wreckage has a lot of playability with his two sping-loaded blades. They're degined to peg into holes on the bottom of his arms, but they can also combine into an awesome, two-ended spinning blade of death that can be mounted on one of the arm wheels. I'm sure they could also fit on other figures with MechTech ports, although I can't test that out right now as I do not have access to any DOTM figures.

    I also like the PCC Mini-cons. It's hit or miss with them, but when they are winners they are excellent. For example: PCC Icepick is a so-so figure (namely due to the lack of decent hands), but his Mini-con Chainclaw turns into a handheld missile launcher that can be given to just about anybody thanks to the 5mm peg. Chopster (the axe Mini-con) makes a great stand in for an Energon axe for a classics Optimus, and for all the suck that poor Backwind is made of, positioning his parts correctly can make him into a really long multi-barreled machine gun of doom in the right hands, complete with shoulder stock.

    Finally, there's HA Laserbeak. While I don't have HA Soundwave, from what I've seen Laserbeak fills many necessary roles. He can turn into some kind of bike-thing for Dylan to ride on, but more importantly he also turns into Soundwave's signature shoulder cannon with launching missile, a detail most modern interpetations of Soundwave lack.

    Indeed, these are great and they are great accessories for ayone with a 5 mm hole in the forearm. Like DotM Starscream, and I imagine Deluxe DotM Optimus.

    I like Recon Ironhide's collection of awesome accessories, too :D  The gun that comes with TakTom's DOTM Voyager Prime w/trailer is my latest favourite.
