    hello,

    Does anybody else feel that warpath needs a kind of melee weapon? and do you guys have ideas or photo's on what will fot in his hands?

    I saw the custom WFC war axe for prime, but i do not thing it fits in warpaths hands. Can Anybody confirm this?

    Thanks

    The big-azz gun of death sticking out of his chest isn't enough? :p

    I feel the same way. I have no issues with him not having a hand gun or a rifle of any sort.

    He's also got not one, but two shoulder-mounted weapons, too. KaPOW!

    HAHAHA...

    Someone posted a picture of him holding a machete from one of the FP kits over at the cool stuff thread. He looked pretty badass..

    No, it's not very functional in hand to hand combat

    He can spin around and whonk baddies in the head with it, "comedy antics with a 2-by-4 at a construction site"-style. :)

    Thick armor: check
    Lots of guns: Check
    No minimum range on guns: Check
    A chest gun that can be used to impale: Check

    And when that doesn't do I am sure Warpath can fist the cons just enough to fire his guns.

    Just FYI the war axe can be used by any figure with a 5mm (I think) hand hole. I'm fairly confidant Warpath falls under than category.

    Warpath is one of those bots that does not need a Melee weapon. He is 100% artillery.

    I might try him with the PCC minicons Smolder or Groundspike.

    Exactly. I don't see the point in giving it anything else.

    Problem is it's not a secure fit, as the bottom of the fist hole is partially blocked by the tank treads. Looks good enough for display though. But really, Warpath doesn't need a melee weapon - he's got his fists and he's a nice solid little Autobot who looks like he could stand up in a fistfight. I get the feeling playing about with him he'd be the sort of character to prefer fists over swords if it came down to close combat, you know?

    If there were a reason for him to need a melee weapon, I can't think of one. He can just hug someone and blast them in half.

    If I give Warpath a melee-weapon, it will be something blunt like a warhammer, mace or morning star.

    THIS. If he were to get into hand to hand combat, then all he needs to do is have the guy stand in front of him, then a huge gaping hole appears in the Decepticon. Problem solved.

    No soldier would be complete without a combat knife. I'll dig up something I can give to Warpath that will suit the toy.
