    I have been looking into getting better weapons for my Alternators and recieved some pretty good suggestions.

    So I was wondering, do you solely buy other toys for their weapons? If so, which toys. The toys don't have to be TF toys. Can fit into any line.

    Pictures with the TFer and the toys weapons are encouraged.

    I've got two DOTM Backfires, I'm thinking about getting more. 2 sweet clip machine guns and a nice looking gun mode. I like DOTM Deluxe Sideswipes Mechtech gun, picking up a second to have a pair. DOTM Deluxe Laserbeak has a sweet Mechtech too, need two of them to get a pair of those. I also have two ROTF Recon Ironhides, that figure started this clip system and he comes with some pretty awesome weapons that figures can use without the clips

    So far I'm only contemplating on buying a Laserbeak and 1 or 2 HA Basics figures.

    I'm tempted to pick up an extra Topspin with the $5-off coupons, just to have more of his guns, which work great with other figures. However, I think the money would be better spent elsewhere.

    Only happened once: I bought a 2nd DOTM Thundercracker to give the first one 2 chainsaws instead of 1. For symmetrical purposes. :)

    I use Gundam weapons and Macross missles to add to my TFs.


    Megs with a Gundam gatling gun

    Munitioner gets a shoulder canon from a Gundam as well
    [​IMG]
    It even attaches to his standard roof mounted gun in altmode

    This Gundam gun fits on Windcharger almost too perfectly

    It also tucks away nicely in his undercarriage in altmode

    I added these missle clusters to Onslaught's BFG from a 1/48 scale Macross super strike stealth type set
    [​IMG]
    They even fit in altmode and on Bruticus too

    I've got more but these are the only ones I have pics of.

    The only toy I bought for the sole purpose of scavenging the weapons was a dollar-store little light-up robot, because it had the Optimus Prime-style rifle and axe, both with 5mm pegs.

    I might have gotten much fewer copies of the deluxe Earth-mode Animated Optimus if not for that awesome axe, however. :)

    When I was collecting the WST's, I had purchased two extra WST-Tigertracks from the KO maker. Used the extra weapons from the extra two Tigertracks to arm WST RedAlertand Sideswipe.

    Ebay:
    I'm probably going to get Armor Topspin. I'm planning a stop-motion movie with him, but after that, I'm giving his guns to other figures.
