    Does anyone know if there exists or will exist a custom made energon axe and flail for the Classics Prime and Megatron respectively?

    I acquired the iGear Optimus weapon set and now need an energon axe to complete my Henkei Prime.... and having a complete Prime and not a complete Megatron is a shame...

    No non-official companies have produced as much.

    If you have the 2003 re-issue of G1 Megatron (the bookbox version), the mace it comes with fits on Classics Megatron

    I, too, went through the same search for appropriate Prime and Megatron energon weapons. A relatively simple solution is to have Darkov cast energon weapons from the Energon toyline. How well the aesthetic matches is for you to decide. While an Energon axe exists, there is no flail -- perhaps consider a purple Energon sword for Megatron.

    Looking at purely G1 accessories, the Prime axe can be found on ebay, while as Abrogate mentioned above, the flail is only available with the reissue Megatron. The peg on the axe is much smaller than the 5mm fist holes on Classics Prime; you'll need to fashion some sort of adapter to get it to work. The flail fits almost perfectly in Megatron's fist without any modification.

    A third and final thing I tried, and what I think I like the most, was adapting a movie style blade for my Henkei Prime. It did, however, take a fair amount of modding to work.

    Of course, if you find a better solution, please share it with us!

    Excellent, thanks for the responses. I'll have to look around...I'm surprised with all the update kits available from iGear, FansProject and so forth that an energon set hasn't been announced/released yet.

    I'll have to keep an eye out for the customs being made here...excellent looking work from the pictures.

    This is actually pretty sweet looking. The colors match great. I may use my animated Primes axe in the meantime until an energon axe becomes available.
