Constructicon guns actually scaled-down Autobot weapons?

    Howdy, y'all.
    I ran across this closed auction and noted to myself which Construction handguns I have, when I looked closer at them and realized all 6 of them resemble a rifle already belonging to some of the Autobot cars.

    Proof: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:US:41&item=6051911583&id=&sasel=

    Bonecrusher -- With the exception of Sideswipe/Red Alert's missile as the rifle's body, I don't recognize most of this one.
    Scavenger -- "rear portion" of Sideswipe/Red Alert's rifle (from handle back), w/ small barrel
    Long Haul -- "front portion of Sideswipe/Red Alert's rifle (parts not included on Scavenger's), with front portion and range finder of Jazz's rifle turned in reverse (to make the butt end)
    Hook -- Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen's rifle, w/ modified stock, barrel, and range finder/sight
    Scrapper -- Jazz's Photon Rifle, w/ modified small barrel
    Mixmaster -- Mirage's rifle; back end and barrel, with the middle portion omitted.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yea , they probably use similar moldcasts for the weapons designs like they did with the Joes.

    Alot of the weapons have the same stocks or barrels etc.

    I never noticed, I thought most Transformers had unique guns/missles and such. That's pretty interesting.

    I can see where you're coming from, though I'd never have spotted it without you pointing it out to me.
