    We all know that rodimus is getting a double bow and arrow, but what about the rest of his crew?
    If ironhide is indeed part of his tean what weapons would he use?
    weve all seen him is various clips from the animated show - and he wanted to be an elite guard soldier,
    Do soldiers get guns or (like the rest of the autobots) have to rely on primative hand weapons?
    Ive got this feelin that he might get a big ass spear
    And also im very aware that bumblebee, ratchet and even rodimus have some sort of energy projectile based weapons

    What do you guys think?

    Rodimus has a bow? Wow, finally an Autobot with a decent weapon that has range.

    Prime with his water gun and axe.
    Bulkhead with his ball.
    BB with his ineffective stingers.
    Ratchet with his magnet things.

    Lame.

    The only one in the core group that has anything really good is Prowl. Why can't the core group get anything good to use?

    No offense to anyone who likes those aforementioned "weapons".

    They were originally space-bridge technicians. Why would technicians have a need for weapons? Besides, it was mentioned in the very 1st episode that the war was over, so there was no neccessity for the Autobots to carry weapons, besides the military (Elite Guard).

    Well Ironhide can cover himself with near-indestructible metal so he can probably just run up to a bot shooting lasers and beat the thing to death.

    Bulkhead's ball is alot more effective than Prowl's shurikens and Ratchet is nothing but a medic, the others however do need something.

    iunno if id need a weapon if i was indestructable, but Mace sounds pretty cool. maybe since he has his Knight-ish armor, he could also have a knight-ish weapon, though not a lance like Sentinel

    It would be interesting to know if during the great war the autobots had big ass guns/weapons, otherwise you would feel the decepticons have a big advantage with their height and weapons, they must of had guns of some kind to win the war

    In Autoboot camp it was shown that they do have turrets.
    If that means anything.

    Don't think he will ever get any weapon besides his indestructible skin. He will probably fight enemies hand-to-hand, just like X-Man Colossus.

    Hand to hand does sound cool and with his armor on he would be unbeatable, but rubbish at long range, if the decepticons had him pinned down in some out post/bunker he is screwed

    His bio makes no mention of weapons, and his firepower is only a 4.

    He could have a pole that he can cover with his metal, like kevin does in alien force.

    That or he will use his armor to run up and hit them.

    Ramram from MOTU relied on his armor to fight while every one els got a weapon of some sort, i just feel that their gunna run out of weapons for the autobots to use and will have to resort to giving them guns, how many swords, axes, sheilds, can they vary to give each autobot a uniqe weapon without it turning into a medievil affair?

    Well, in all likelyhood, Ironhide will likely be Ratchet with a new head. I say, they should remold the magnet things Ratchet has and replace them with pistols. It'd go along with his Texan personality to have twin pistols, and it'd be a simple remold, since they're already KINDA gunshaped as it is. just make them twin blasters. Maybe even make them resemble revolvers...

    I like the weapons the Autobots have. Reminds me of King Arthur and his men.

    One day I had an idea of them just relacing the tools with lasers that hook up the same way as the tools.(If they made a toy of him)I think we need an Autobot that throws tomohawks and uses them upclose like the guy in the videogame, Gun.

    Originally, yes. But Magnus came around with his entourage, and all he gave them were handcuffs. Why not some decent weaponry to fight Decepticons?

    It's not like they need some decent weaponry, they did everything just with some axe and a magnet.

    What? A Transformer bio making sense? What an outrageous idea! Bah! :p 

    Besides, did you all already forget the ever so well put morale of "A Fistful of Energon"? Rather than playing it safe and all, ya just better be minimally equipped so it wouldn't get to your head. No reasoning about your enemy being generally bigger and armed with bigger weapons! :p
