    do you like the mechtech weapons, hate them or mixed feelings?

    i myself LOVE THEM. to me they are the highlight of the DOTM line, first thing i do when i take off the figures is simply play and test the mechtech weapon before i start transforming the toy itself

    Meh. Some are good (Shockwave), some are meh (Roadbuster), most are GODAWFUL (Voy. Optimus though it does make a good fusion cannon for my Cyb. Galvatron.)

    Mostly hate, but there are a few I don't mind. I have a bag full of them because they mostly look terrible.

    I'll likely go through them and find the ones that look alright and remove the springs/paint them for use with my bigger figures.

    I found them to be utterly pointless and half-conceived. If you could at least lock the Deluxe weapons in place, I might be able to appreciate them. They are over sized, inappropriate and ugly. This is my opinion and OP, I'm glad you like them.

    Its a mix bag for me, but I like the idea. If they just change them alittle then they would be awesome. First get rid of the springs, second have them be able to lock up, and third more have them be able to combine with other mechtech weapons.

    Mixed feelings. Some are good like Sideswipe's or Optimus's, but Ironhide and Skids? Hell no.

    i find mechtech a fairly decent gimmick,im kinda a fan of interchangeable weapons,and 5mm pegs,heck because of the molds being so versatile,articulation and pegwise,i can find a decent set of fan modes,sadly i just only have two figures from the line,mainly because of a set of reasons,besides. i think if hasbro has plans to use the weapons again in some way,i think i wouldnt mind picking them up.

    In theroy they are awesome. Two weapons in one. However... since alot of them don't have locking mechnaisms. it's kinda not applied well.

    I'm pretty much indifferent about the MechTech gimmick. What I liked best about it is that for the most part, you could toss them aside and it wouldn't effect the figure.

    Dislike. It's a stupid gimmick. And almost all the weapons are oversized and ugly because of it.

    I'm all for guns when it comes to TFs but i don't like mechtech.
    they are:
    -ridiculiously oversized guns with too small barrels.
    -the reason for smaller and less detailed main figures.
    -mostly only can be plugged to awfully placed mechtech ports on the arms. few figures have actually correctly molded hands to fit and yet fewer have the arm strenght and body balance to hold them in their hands.
    -looking like crap when combined with other mechtech weapons which is advertised as a main feature.

    yet i can mostly stand them by giving deluxe's weapons to voyager sized figures and voyager's weapons to leader sized figures.

    Didn't hate Mechtech, could have been a better gimmick.

    Some of the weapons are actually pretty boss. Others are just plain stupid-looking.

    I liked how Air Raid, Megatron, and Shockwave had weapons that formed part of their alts, but Shockwave's is the only one I like as a MechTech weapon. AR and Megs' MechTechery don't seem particularly necessary (AR's could be just a shield and Megs' could simply telescope out/in of itself) and severely weigh down their arms. Don't care for the ones that don't bother blending.

    Don't like the holes either. AR keeps them discreet, Megatron's fill in, and Shockwave isn't a real vehicle so it doesn't matter, so those three are again OK by me, but I'd like my alt modes to be complete and not punched full of unnecessary holes.

    speaking of mechtech weapons that blend in...

    the odd thing about a specific weapon,soundwave's, ever since i saw prime ratchet,i always though that giving soundwave's weapon on the roof of ratchet's vehicle mode and it ends up looking like a news van believe it or not.

    Mixed, some of the voyager weapons were good. Its just the deluxe weapons was a complete wase of time. Had that been able to lock in place, it might of been good.

    I like them for the most part, though you have to do a little bit of DIY modding and swapping out with figures to get the most mileage from mech tech weapons. I think they were meant to be swapped given the whole interchangeability of the gimmick.

    I'll admit that the continuation of their use in the Powerizer line is very lackluster so far. Only Megatron's looks halfway decent.

    Mixed. They're great once you take out the springs, but Sideswipe really needs his double barrels. And Bumblebee needs a proper Plasma Cannon.
