    I have been thinking of getting some G1 HR guns for my Classic HD, has anyone done this, if yes, how well does the guns fit or do they need to be modifyed?

    they don't fit. classic hot rod, at least mine, does not have the standard sized hand holes.

    They fit perfectly. GI Hot Rod's guns had smaller pegs than the current standard, and Classics Roddy's hands are the exact size to accommodate them. He can't hold his Targetmaster, though, because the peg on that is too big.

    That's cool to know. I'll have to try that with my own Classics Hot Rod.

    Cool, I wouldn't mind modifing them if they where to big I was going to shave em down to size, but if they fit thats sweet.

    I've not tried this one mine, but it seems rather coincidental that he just happens to have hands the right size for the guns wouldn't you agree?

    Yeah, I did this about day one when I got him, because I didn't like the oversized engine canon they gave him. Sense G1 Roddy's hands and pegs were smaller than today's standard... they fit nicely into Classic Roddy's hands sense he was made with smaller than standard for some reason.

    Also, Classics Grimlock can do the same... although his current weapons *along with one of the Predacons swords* looks great with him.

    Put a gun in each hand, and strap his flamethrower upside down on his back as a jetpack.

    thats pretty surprising. I have a vintage hot rod, and his guns won't fit in the classics figure's hands.

    the posts on the old guns are too large for my classic rodimus' hands. maybe there was a change made to the design of rodimus at some point? his gun has a wierd rectangular handle too, completely unlike any other TF gun I've seen.

    The shape of Classics Hot Rod's gun handle has to do with it going in a hole in alt mode where they apparently don't want it to rotate. My understanding is that Classics Hot Rod's hands are smaller specifically so that he can hold G1 Hot Rod's guns.

    This could be true sense, my G1 Roddy guns come from a Hasbro reissue... a valid thought I believe.

    Aside from Mirage and Rodimus having the same size fist holes as Hot Rod, I've found that Speedbreaker's weapons also fit in with the rest of them. The bumper crossbow looks out of place on anyone else, but the gun/knife looks pretty slick in Mirage's hands.
