    Took me a little while to realize they didn't have them and now that I did I'm suddenly dissapointed as I really liked the gimmick. Seemed like such an easy thing to include

    Even the first editions don't have them (which makes me somewhat curious as the figures were allegedly part of generations and the only other generations figures without the clip on points were from the start of the line)

    Anyone else missing the clip points?

    I only use the weapons the toys come with, so I don't really care about it.

    I think it's alright that they don't have them. I think they would stick out a little.

    You can still clip them on TFP Cyberverse via the various pegs on their weapons. I think somebody in a Feedback thread had a Cyberverse Bulkhead all tooled up that way.
    Not quite what you wanted, but still something.

    Pity if they're not on the larger figures though as it's not exactly a hard gimmick to include for. But then maybe some people would complain about more messing with screen accuracy to include clip points.

    If they were integrated well into the robot mode it'd be cool, but they'd probably stick out too much-especially with the rounded, stylized aesthetic.

    I don't like to mix 'n' match weapons anyways, so I'm not really missing them.

    Clip points are kinda pointless. There's lots of hands that are just thick enough to fit the clips.

    I never liked the clip weapons because I can see these C-joints becoming stretched over time where they can't clip on the joint anymore.

    I like the customizable nature of clip weapons. Some figures benefit from them more than others, though. It certainly adds another layer of playability to them, but I'm glad they opted not to make it a standard feature on every single release.
