    My local dollar store has some duo-con like combiner jets, and I noticed the legs portion (stealth jet) has two little black guns mounted on the wings that looked about like 5mm pegs, so I bought one. Sure enough, it gave me guns for Classic Bumblebee and Cliffjumper! Not bad... two third party handguns for a dollar! Here is a picture of Bumblebee holding his new laser pistol.

    Not bad, I may do this. I'll probably paint mine to help it stand out though.

    Nice find. I've seen those sets for sale around here but never thought about using the guns for BB/CJ, gonna have to give it a shot.

    Oh, have you tried to see if they can be stowed away somewhere on BB in alt-mode?

    Interesting, I wouldn't have thought those crap figures would be worthwhile ever. :)

    Big Lots sells these as well. I remember wanting to buy them for the very same reason.

    GAH! Raise the trailer hitch on your Bumblebee! (sorry, mistransformed TFs are a bit of a pet peeve for me, especially blatant ones)

    Anyway, good to know there's something nice and cheap out there that works. As awesome as Bumblebee looks with Prime's smokestack gun, I don't like depriving other TFs of their guns, and the missiles launchers that came with the movie GI Joes don't fit very tightly.

    I have the G3 trailer for Bumblebee's pistol, but that may be useful for other bots. I'd just have to find whatever this duo-con thing is, I think I have an idea what it is.

    Cool find. I remember they also had some KO Classics molds (deluxe Prime, Megs, and the seeker mold) for a buck a while back. And Prime came with two of his rifle. I wonder if they still have those...

    What dollar store were they at? I'm curious about them for customs.

    Yes, raise the hitch and then push the backpack until it "clicks" into place. The wheels should be right under the roof/chest when it's all the way in. It amazes me how many people mistransform this guys.

    Will look for this Duocon thingy, I've noticed a surge of KOs since November, due to the Christmas season, hehe. :)

    I saw a robot with the perfect BFG for Classics (or Alternity) Cliffjumper...that's the only reason I've been checking out these dollar stores as of late.

    I've been asked if you can fit the gun in Bumblebee in car mode. Yes, just slip it between the seats pointing down with handle forward in vehicle mode and it stay in place.

    I picked up some extra sets at the Dollar Treasure. If anyone needs a pair of these guns, PM me while they last.
