    Transformers aren't always known for their massive arsenals. Even the original Prime only had a little blaster. What are some of the most heavily armed Transformers you can think of?

    Off the top of my head, Classics Jetfire ranks pretty high. Two missile launchers, a double-blaster rifle, overhanging cannons, and anti-air blasters on his helmet.

    Optimus Primal has:

    1 mace
    2 swords
    2 shoulder cannons
    2 arm cannons

    I'd say he's pretty well armed.

    Metroplex

    He had a buddy named "six-gun" for a reason, and that didn't include the fold out rocket launcher in his chest, the flip over guns on his shoulder, the cannon in the center of his torso, the car that had 2 laser guns in car mode and another gun for bot mode, and the stubby tank thing, his head antennas(maybe, I dunno. They looked like guns to me with his head popped down), and the antennas on his shoulders with the arms pointing back when he was in his attack vehicle mode.

    We're talkin' 20 guns total? That's a lot. Even Fort Max didn't have that many. I mean hell, the guy had enough extra guns to turn into a bot.

    Fortress Maximus ranks up there. Two huge cannons on his sides, twin-barreled guns on the back of his fists, in his forearms, in his legs, one on the side of his leg, and another for his hand, plus the giant rifle. Not to mention Cerebro had a gun as well, and you have Cog who could be a twin-gun vehicle or a robot with a pistol as well.

    Cybertron Optimus Prime. Two big cannons, two leg-guns, and the handheld gun..

    Also, while Armada Cyclonus is decently armed already with his arm-guns and knee-mounted guns, he's got enough powerlink bits that you can load him up with mini-cons or Energon weapons. Me, I like to load him up with the Destruction Team and Crumplezone in robot mode, and then throw Insecticon's gatling gun deal and Ravage's cannon. That's a well-armed TF.

    Cyb Scattershot is esasily a contender. Little dude had more firepower than half the Decepticons combined. Gatling guns on his shoulders, bunker busters on his back, and a fold out a missile rack between those. Plus, the double barreled hand cannon.

    Cyb Prime, Cyb Wingsaber, and the Cybertron Defense Team members were also each packing a crap ton of artillery. Primus and Classics Jetfire also rate high in the "weapons cache, with a robot attached" category.

    Most heavily-armed Transformer?

    Probably Megatron or Galvatron. Those cannons have to make their arms pretty heavy.

    Roadbuster definitely gets beat out by many of the above, but he just always seemed so damn commando with all that gear.

    Finding a complete one took forever, but was definitely worth it.

    Cybertron Metroplex had that giant axe and could hold about 20 mini-cons.
