    With the close partnership that HMS and Hasbro has had, it would appear that we're getting quite the arsenal in figure form with certain figures. Since we had a discussion on this in one of the last Xbox Live Parties while a group of us were playing FoC, I figured I'd start a thread to share. If you'd like pics, this sites own resource guide (at the top), Transformers Generations Toys - Transformers - TFW2005 can provide pics.

    Weapon/Figure

    Glass Gas Cannon/Optimus Prime (likely Ultra Magnus as well)
    Slingshock Cannon/Shockwave
    Grapple/Jazz

    Swindles Turret Gun/Swindle

    Scatter Gun (Possibly double as the Photon Burst Rifle)/Roadbuster
    Gear Shredder* (*though it looks like an earlier version of the weapon)/Topspin
    Sub-sonic Repeater/Whirl

    Gear Shredder (final game version; from the pics it's easy to tell that the winglets on the gun are clipped on from the alt mode rather than permanently affixed)/Kickback
    Pathblaster/Sideswipe
    Neutron Assault Rifle (Scrapmaker)/Starscream

    Grimlocks Sword and Shield/Grimlock



    Sword (Some of us think it's the one from Grimlocks Quarters, others that it's the one Prime uses in the last level)/Ultra Magnus
    A4 (? There's some debate here as well)/Twin Twist

    Unknown Gun (It's clear the two parts combine into a sword, but when not in sword configuration, it looks like there's a gun there)/Air Raid
    Electro Harpoon (Clearly it's supposed to be Impactors Harpoon hand, but it also bears more than a slight resemblance to the Electro Harpoon)/Impactor
    Throwback Blaster (Again, clearly it's supposed to be Blasters g1 weapon, but it does bear more than a slight resemblance to the Throwback Blaster)/Blaster


    While we had discussed how cool a weapons pack (like McFarlane has done for the Halo series) would be, that we're getting such a wide selection at all is pretty cool.

    These are just weapons and not MechTech, are they?

    The Wreckers' weapons appear to be Mechtech, but not so ugly and annoying.

    Wait, I thought Roadbuster came with the Energon Harvester?

    The weapon it resembles closest is the Scatter Blaster.
    We'll find out on the box, though.

    It doesn't say so, but I could have sworn Shockwave's gun is near identical to the Photon Burst Rifle in FoC.

    Edit: I checked. Shockwave definitely comes with the Photon Burst Rifle. It looks nothing like the Slingshock.

    Seriously, when info on FoC Combaticons were released I was excited to own him, now that SDCC showed us they will be repainted into the Wreckers with new heards and weapons(?). I'm even more ancy to own them over the Combaticons.

    Actually, Shockwave's weapon looks rather more like the Slingshock than the PBR, and Roadbuster's weapon looks more like a PBR. See the attached pics.

    Roadbuster's gun has the greeblies and straight rails from the in-game PBR, while Shockwave's gun has the smooth barrel, purple glow, and curved hoses of the Slingshock.

    Hard to tell, but Fireflight's weapon seems to bear the best resemblance to the cybr corruptor; it uses the same back as Shockwave's gun, so it has the hoses, and two small bottom barrels, like the corruptor model. It also has a bulge on top (albeit curved where the CG model is angled), and the fold-out blade kind of resembles the long, tapering barrel. It's kind of a stretch, but nothing else even looks close...

    Honestly, I didn't think there was any doubt as to whether Shockwave's weapon was the Sling Shock-- I mean, it's his signature weapon even in-game, lol.

    But yeah, I was wrong, Roadbuster definitely has the Photon Burst Rifle. It's got the scope near the back that the PBR has, and it's not as wide as the Energon Harvester.

    I'm still not sure about Whirl's gun, but it looks the most like the Subsonic Repeater to me.

    Well, with pictures put right in front of me, I cannot argue.
    I concede and I can plainly see the resemblance. Thanks!
