    hello all,
    I was thinking of ordering the G3 trailer (fans projects) from Kapow toys, but I do not own the figures that the weapons where designed for (Classics, Grimlock, Mirage, BB and hound. not sideswipe cause i have him)
    So I had a thought that the weapons might work with the new Generations/ Reveal the shield figures, as I have a chance to collect them for good prices.
    So could someone please post some images of the weapons compatibility with figures like WFC Prime, Drift and the rest.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks. :)

    Can't do much about Mirage's missile launcher, but the others simply have 5mm pegs and will work with most TFs on the market.

    mirages missile launcher attaches via the inside of his tire, around the hole in it, doubt it would fit anywhere else

    I highly recommend picking up Mirage and Hound. They're fantastic deluxes.

    Hound I can get the Henkei version easily for £20, but I hardly ever see a Mirage in the UK for a decent price.

    Mirage at the least. He is one of my top 3 favorite Classics Autobots.

    Yes, Mirage is amazing. Kinda hate myself for skipping him when first released. I recently got him and he looks amazing... and I'm just speaking about alt mode as I haven't opened him up yet.

    And for some reason I like the Hasbro version a lot more then the Takara one.

    Yeah, I didn't know what I was missing when I skipped on Mirage back in '06. Didn't pick the figure up until two years later (about when I joined this board), and that figure is awesome regardless of the deco.

    Hound is no figure to skip over though. Cyclonus gets all the love from that wave, but honestly Hound is probably my favorite figure from the Universe line. The Henkei takes everything awesome about the toy and simply makes it look better.

    Have to agree with this - there's a decent Reprolabel set which makes him even better.

    Hasbro Mirage & Henkei Hound = pure win.

    Well, when I finally manage to track down all of the figures I was going to buy the repro-labels set for the G3 trailer and for the figures.
    At the moment I only have Henkei Prime and classics sideswipe from the figures that the weapons where designed for, and luckily Bumblebee is be re-released soon. Maybe they'l re-release Mirage.

    The thing with that Bumblebee is that he's going to be painted in metallic gold..
