    no pics, but I gave Hound the two-pack Prime's gun and I gave sideswipe titanium grimlock's gun. Hound looks equally good with two-pack roadbuster's knife which can actually store in vehicle mode.

    I was using the 2 pack Prime's gun for Sideswipe but I think I will give it to Hound. So I dunno what to give Sideswipe. I wonder if anyone gonna make a weapons pack for Sideswipe? Or make the handle from the G1 gun bigger and slightly remold it.

    I fashioned Side Swipe a shoulder-mount outta other TF parts and use his tailpipe as his pistol.

    As for Hound, I plan to use one of Grapple/Inferno's guns. Don't know if it fits yet because I haven't unburied yet.

    oh, that's a good idea man...i think that 2 pack gun would work well for him...not sure who has that gun in my current display, but i might switch it around...and roadbusters knife is a good idea too...

    and caine, his gun plugs into his shoulder to be a shoulder cannon, ala G1

    Those two figures, plus some thought about old g1 characters has gotten me to wondering: Why are all of the shoulder cannons on the right shoulder? Sideswipe, Red Alert, Hound, Wheeljack, Jazz, and Ricochet all have right-side shoulder cannons.

    This where KO's come in handy. Go to stores like Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, and Big lots.

    Most of these stores sell knock off transformers and power rangers that have some pretty niffy looking weapons. And sometimes they even have some of the older universe toys the cybertron and energon toys repackaged in the TFU boxes.

    And most of this stuff can be dirt cheap.

    hmmm... no clue...that's why i place a few weapons in the left hands to make it more even...in fact, hound is a lefty now...also, it was probably just easier to mold them all that way in g1...though prowl, smokescreen and bluestreak were all double launchered...

    and yeah, that's a good idea...i got a KO g1 prime gun for my stupid little 2 pack prime to hold...its grey, otherwise prime would have it

    Haven't got pictures (didn't come out well at night, might try again tomorrow), but my Sideswipe has a rifle from a knockoff Macross Valkyrie. As it's in white, it works quite well as a replacement for his G1 rifle.
