If there was a line-wide gimmick, what would you want it to be?

    See the title-what do you think/expect/want/dread the line-wide gimmick to be, if any at all? I personally am hoping for hands that transform into their blasters-for all of them. Prime's is sick, Arcee's are cool, I LOVE CJ'S, Megatron gets his retractable ROTF MURDER CLAW, and I think if i could fully see Bulkhead's I would love his too. For some, something as simple as BW Deathcharge's hands-to-cones thing, for others, something more complex/different (Megs/Bulky) If they had to do a line-wide gimmick, thats what I would hope for.

    What about you guys?

    Hidden vehicle weapons, ala Stealth Force.

    Really, I don't care what it is, as long as I get Eradicons.

    I think the line wide gimmick will be transformable weapons.

    Here is an idea.. none!!! if we have not learned from the unicron trilogy line wide gimicks FAIL.

    I am all for the 3mm clips use um all over the place, but no keys. minicons. blah blah blah

    I guess target or powermasters would be cool, if they were done understated as they are supposed to be.

    I agree. Transforming is the gimmick.

    so to those who said no line-wide gimmick: would you want some of them to have transformable weapons like in the show, or is that a big N O for you guys?

    pop out weapons.. if they are done as an accent, and the whole toy is not designed around them ala triggerbots. would be ok.

    some pop out panels with little guns would be fantastic.. hey they can even put them on 3mm clips!!

    The flip out weapons could work via spring loaded gimmicks. Press a button and various panels in the arm move to form a cannon.

    No line-wide gimmicks please. Maybe character specific ones like in the Animated line. Transforminng weapons might be cool.

    The only problem I might see with the toyline is that everyones weapon in the show transforms onto their arm.Now it would be cool if they came with a seperate weapon that could snap on over the hand and store somewhere,but don't make it a gimmick line like armada,we all know what happened there.

    Anyways what I really would like to see isn't a gimmick.I'd like to see them come with accessories.Like the aforementioned weapons and,which this would make it really cool,autobots come with a small energon crystal and decepticons come with a small dark energon crystal.both of which could of course fit in the toys hand.

    arm guns that have a spring gimmick to switch from hand to gun. because all of the characters do that.

    Another vote for character-specific gimmicks. Though in most of their cases, it is transforming weapons. Which I would personally love to see more of.
