    There are a lot of people who hate mech-tech. But if you're like myself, you may like them.
    I honestly don't wanna buy every figure, just to get the weapons...
    and if there's someone who hates them...
    Anyone else expecting to see MechTech weapon lots pop up on e-bay?

    Hmm, not sure. Anything is possible. Some of them are "okay", while others a bit goofy.

    I don't like how the Deluxe toys go from being a gun to a melee weapon, but then don't stick like the Voyager weapons.

    I'm glad Leader Sentinel doesn't come with anything like this. He's basically a normal Leader toy.

    I figure if they feel the need to make a gimmick for a toy, I am glad it is at least a completely separate piece I can choose to ignore.

    The only deluxe I had any desire to pick up was Ratchet, and fortunately his weapon is cool.

    Yea, Ratchet is one of the few characters who's Mech-Tech suits him. We know for a fact that Ratchet had a saw blade like that because he was shown with it in the both previous films.

    I have to say that VOY Sentinel's Mech-Tech is the most gawdy of the weapons. I hate how they converted the water hose into the weapon itself.

    By the time you pay the shipping, you could buy the deluxe Starscream at Walmart for $9 and get the mech tech and the figure. Why wait?

    I'm hoping to buy/trade for a couple from fellow board members (even thinking of making a sig picturing the one's I'm interested in). I like them, but there are certainly some of them that I would like to have, but at the same time I have no interest in the figure it goes with. For example, I really like Sideswipe's rifle, but I have absolutely no interest in buying a new movie-verse Sideswipe.

    Pretty much this. I want some of the guns because they do look good. Sideswipe's rifle is a really good example.

    This is why the HA molds are so tempting. Their weapon forms can be awesome.

    I, for one, will not be using my mech tech weapons for anything. I'll probly list them for trade or put them up on ebay in a lot, eventually. But I only want like 3 figs from this line (sofar at least) and only one (voyager helecopter guy) has a mech tech.

    I don't have a walmart were I live only one target and a TRU. The target is small and the toy section still has some hftd and generations stuff (just seaspray, drift, thrust, and some others). The TRU is running out of business too, I checked for DOTM stuff and what do you know they had only tuner mudflap, one mindwipe, and that three pack with dlx soundwave, tf1 voyager megatron, and the fallen.

    I hate the mechtech weapons because of what their existence has caused in sacrifices made to the figures. So odds are I'd keep mine, even if I'm not fond of the gimmick.

    The Mechtech guns are neat if only because they're nice big separate guns. In some cases, the gun really completes the feel of the figure - like Crankcase.

    Still, I think I'll be opening them up and retooling them so they can stay 'open' instead of automatically springing back.
