    Just wondering if anyone else has a theory about all the ports on FOC OP. Maybe they'll do a weapons accessory pack? Maybe a trailer? Maybe a trailer that turns into armor for the Magnus recolor? The placements of some of the ports just have me wondering.

    I don't know about pics, but off the top of my head, he's got them on the bottom of his feet (to mount the blaster in vehicle mode), in his fists (for obvious reasons), on the outside of his forearms (hidden in vehicle mode), by his rear fenders (between the middle and rear wheels IIRC; I don't have the figure handy right now), and in the largest smokestack on each side.

    Many of the figures come with weapons from the game, or so it seems. The ports are just there to mount these weapons wherever you want.

    Basically, it's the same idea as from the DOTM and Prime lines, except no Mechtech weapons. Yet.

    He's going to combine with the Supreme class Metroplex toy they announced at Comic Con.

    ...I wish.

    I'm guessing he just has a lot of ports so he has a lot of ports. I doubt there are any plans for weapons packs or add on's.

    Every time I think about that I go all fanboy.

    And the Wrecker weapons seem to be FOC-themed MechTechs.

    (But Roadbuster's is still freaking awesome)

    Shockwave only has the two for his hands and one on his back. No others that I can find.

    Weapons packs would be incredible. They could do them as game store or TrU exclusives for a FoC promotion. They already have the Scrapmaker (Shockwave's cannon minus the barrel), Prime's, BB's and Jazz's guns, Megatron's reversible fusion cannon, and the upcoming Starscream and Combaticon weapons, so a big pack of them wouldn't be impossible to do.

    None of the wave 1 toys have accurate guns.
    Shockwave's secondary weapon seems to be inspired by the EMP Shotgun, but with 3 barrels. Optimus' is based on an old concept version of the Path Blaster, hence the newer Path Blaster with Sideswipe. Jazz's doesn't exist in the game.
    Excited for the Combaticons' weapons, though. They're all very accurate and exist in SOME form.
    The Wreckers are also very exciting for me. Roadbuster's is that default weapon no one will tell me the name of, and Whirl's seems to be the Thermo Rocket Cannon.

    And which is Bumblebee's gun?

    I'm trying to figure out if this is a sarcastic insult, or a general comment. Distinguishing between friendly and ill-intended vocal cues really sucks when you try to do it via the internet.

    I'm trying to figure out what he meant either way by "Inventive".

    Not assuming or answering for someone else... but when I read that exchange it seemed to me that he probably intended his comment for the post previous to yours (posted at exactly the same time as yours as well). The post with the add-on parts for WFC Optimus Prime. Probably scrolled down too far when searching for the quote button, and hit yours instead.

    //my take

    Not sure why he quoted me, then. Unless he quoted me by accident instead of the person above me. In that case, the "inventive" comment makes perfect sense, because that custom is pretty awesome.

    I believe the gun weve seen foc bumblebee use most often is coming with starscream of all people.

    Shame that wfc toys came with a mutant truncated assault rifle (optimus) or shit that never existed (soundwave/bumblejumper)

    That Starscream gun is not Bumblebee's new signature gun. It's just a gun he uses a lot.
