    Personally I really dont like accessories. Also they need to find a way to implement it into the figure in its alt mode.

    I don't care that much about accessories, only the transformer I'm paying for.

    As long as they come with a gun I'm good. Sure I'd like more accessories but I can live without them

    Can't think of a figure I own that I felt was seriously short-changed. I wanted a rifle for TFU Sideswipe, but I used the one off Dropshot, who really doesn't need a seperate rifle. A handgun for TFU Onslaught would have been nice, but I took the rifle from TFU Overload and problem solved. So no, I don't think they're cheap about accessories. Only case where that accusation might stick is with TFU Hot Shot.

    I want more accesories but more importantly better interactivity between figures.

    Energon had lots of weapons. Granted it practically encouraged army building basics to give your megas a candy colored power boost.

    At least the new N.E.S.T. movie line in a few months will have a ironhide that can loan out knives and guns to deluxes and the new basics.

    That seems like the best way to please fans of this style of play without resorting to weapons packs or basic building:

    Give the big figures a comfortable amount of detachable gear to arm a unit of mechs.

    i dunno i would have liked guns for hound, mirage, bumblebee but other than that i just think it would be cool to have a load of knives and stuff like you would get with other action figures so you could really make use of the poseability of the figure

    I'm happy with the amount of accesories we get now. If there is one thing I hate it's when the guns aren't integrated into the transformation somehow. Luckily that's happening more and more as time goes on. I dislike having a small tub full of extra weapons when I display my figures in vehicle mode.

    i don't really care about the accesories, what matters is the transformer itself.

    this, if the weopon is integrated into the trasformer, ie. if its stored in him or is a part of him, im cool with it...if its just laying there, i don't really care for it

    I guess I can accept that these figures have to be made to a budget. I'd rather have to rummage around in my spare weapons cache than accept poorer but better armed figures. Although I'm not really clear on the logic of Bumblebee getting that trailer doohickey instead of a gun.

    as a counterpoint, i have a large arms cache of unused weapons that came with Starwars figures. bloody chewbacca came with about eight of them damn things.

    i can't bring myself to bin them all, so what on earth am i supposed to do with them all beyond creating an imperial arms-dump diorama? too many guns is just as bad as not enough.

    Just Enough...

    I think there should be at least one hand-held weapon or if its a part of the figure at least 2 missles instead of one because Gn.1 figures came with loads of weapons and parts which were lost easily and now it costs a small fortune to replace them.

    /thread. They didn't have to give us Ratbat, they could have repainted laserbeak as Buzzsaw and saved a load there.

    For the most part, I'm pretty happy with accessories we get. The only realy gripe would be, as was previously mentioned, the lack of a gun for Classics Bumblebee. I solved that easily though by stealing Armada Crap-to-bot's (I forgot the name...that really shit one from Armada that everyone hates and came with that lame moped minicon) pistol and painted it black.

    Generally though, as long as there's a weapon of some sort I'm happy. It's great if it can be used/stored in the alt mode, but it's no deal breaker if it can't.

    so basically what you're saying is that it's all Michael Bay's fault?
