    Remember when transformers didn't come with weapons all of the time & had five millimeter hands? well,looks like hasbro has finally made some good make ups for the past two movie lines.Do you think they are a good idea?

    I think the weapons are generally sort of goofy, but at least it's a gimmick that doesn't interfere with the figure it accompanies.

    Where's the "I like it, but I'm not gonna go overboard about it" option?

    good idea, could have a better execution. Awesome sword that turns into an awesome gun would be awesome. clunky weapon turning into other clunky weapon-not so much.

    This. Main thing I don't like about MechTech is that it takes away from the paint and size of the figure.

    I don't care much for them. Especially on the deluxe where they're mostly just oversized brick looking things that don't fit in with the vehicle at all and can't lock. At least they don't get in the way of the actual figure...except for Voyager Ironhide who has three ugly looking pegs sticking out of the alt mode.

    1.Unscrew screws
    2.Find sping
    3.Take out spring
    4.Screw the screws back in
    5.Rinse and Repeat on other weapons
    Problem solved

    Already know about that method. I've done it with Roadbuster's chainsaw. It still doesn't hold solidly though and can change back under the influence of gravity. I'd prefer it if it was just built in with a locking feature instead of having to go in and remove the springs on all of them.

    What is this about the deluxe MechTechs not locking? I have a Sideswipe and Barricade and their weapons have been able to lock properly for me.

    It's a neat gimmick, but nothing more. Definitely not Hasbro's best.

    I'm gonna vote for "It's a cool idea, but certainly not the best idea in years."

    Mech Tech is cool. It's fun to fiddle with, but the best idea in years? There's no way.

    While that happens on my Thundercracker weapon no matter how tight they are,my Roadbuster one is nice and tight. Some are different then others. Have you tried tightening the screws? But I do wish that they never put springs in in the first place. I don't get what the point of them is

    With a few exceptions (like Megatron or Shockwave), the Mechtech weapons look goofy on the vehicle modes.

    On the robot modes however, pretty snazzy. Just wish they locked though...
