    I was browsing Josh Nizzi's artwork on his website and I saw something that resembled the MechTech weapons from the toyline and I wanted to ask, do you think MechTech should've been in the movie?

    Didn't miss it. Then again, Megatron might have had a proper fusion cannon for once...

    I think in someways it was, but they really did fail to highlight it like one would have expected them to being as it was the highlight of the toy line. That was a serious failure on someones part, and probably hurt the toy line sales.

    I'm pretty sure MechTech was in the movie for some bots, or at the very least, Optimus Prime and his ion cannon.

    Balls, man! That is one sweet weapon! When did Nizzi update his site? Screw it, I'll check.

    No. I thought the fact they they spontainiously decided to hold their guns in there hands now as opposed to having them integrated was enough WTF is up with the guns.

    What was wrong with his last fusion cannon? It seemed plenty proper, at least to Optimus.

    They sort of were, or at least there were alot more handheld weapons and extra equipment this time around, instead of the bots relying mostly on their built in weapons.

    Wasn't that gun (photo in OP's post) used in the movie as Sentinel's rust gun?

    No, the rust gun in the movie is a completely different looking weapon. Here, it was combined with the shield to form a MechTech weapon.

    It's not a Mechtech weapon. It's a sheild that becomes a gun.

    Okay, well, the fact that most of the MechTech weapons involved guns turning into bigger guns or guns turning into bladed weapons and the fact that this was done around the same time Hasbro must've been working on toy concepts for the DOTM line, it's safe to say that this is a MechTech weapon.

    I just like Megatron with a big-honkin' cannon on his arm. Personal preference. The RotF one was plenty effective, and much better than the one in the first movie.

    You mean the ******ed double-cannon blast? Yeah, wasn't a fan of that either.

    Megatron at least at the excuse of his cannon arm being ripped off and replaced.

    And the Autobots at least have an excuse. Que arrived and starting building new weapons for them. Ironhide still had his cannons, but he opted for the big rifles Que gave him instead. Ratchet and Bee still use their regular weapons. Sideswipe had a duplciate made of his gun from ROTF, but he still had his blades. Dino had no guns at all. Optimus had a ton of new weapons but I guess Que made them, although he had different weapons in every film so who knows?

    No real reason why the Decepticons are suddenly using hand held guns though, although if you look closely all but Megatron and Soundwave are using the exact same gun, so maybe it's standard issue?
