    Official Gun Names

    For Prime's trailer, the boxy gun is called "Bee Gun", and the other is called "Recon Scout Blaster". For Nemesis, its "Bug Gun" and "Attack Blaster".

    That's kinda neat, but I don't think I'd ever pay more than like $5 for a handful of those.

    I'm using my Predaking's individual predacon guns for Bumblebee and Sideswipe, and my Sunstreaker's using his own exhaust/gun with Sideswipe's backpack for added bulk. That said, Predaking's guns are more rifle-sized, and I like these because they're pistols.

    Same as above; I'd take as many of these as I could get for $5. No interest in the trailer.

    They look just like Modulok guns from Masters of the Universe

    Yeah... Without the trailer to store them, these are just one more thing to lose. Pass...

    I think recent TF lines have been gimped a bit as far as weapons are concerned, and the onslaught of fan-made add-ons really illustrates that point. I'm hoping that Hasbro takes notice, and the next iteration of Universe, or whatever else comes along after the movie addresses the issue. I'm all for bots coming with weapons that are integrated into their design, but sometimes they're just no replacement for a laser rifle.

    I'm perfectly OK with guns that aren't integrated into the alt mode, but I'd rather the toys come with them instead of overpaying for a bunch of fan-made pieces.

    No big-ass gun for Cliffjumper? :( 

    So is this just an individual shot of the guns that will come with the trailers, or are they actually selling these separately like some posters have suggested here?

    Are these just proto's and the releases will be in different colors?

    Haha, the barrel on the one smack in the middle looks malformed.

    These are part of the Optimus and Nemesis trailers. Both trailers will have black guns from what I know.

    I'd rather get the Fansproject trailer. Better looking weapons and aren't limited to just hand guns.
