    Just as the thread title says really... I personally hate having my figures not have a weapon of some kind and I haven't really found anything that fits Cliffjumper or Bumblebee so I thought some folks here might have some good suggestions.

    RID Hightower's small gun works perfectly for Bumblebee/Cliffjumper/Bugbite. I don't have pics at the moment, but I can take some after work.

    - Cliffjumper - The gun that came with the Optimus Prime figure from that Classics Optimus Prime vs Megatron two-pack.

    - Bumblebee - I have two releases of the RiD Hightower mold and I gave their small guns to Bumblebee, so he has a pair of pistols.

    Sounds like that could work well.

    Don't have either of those two deluxes anymore, but I'll see if my friend still has her's so I can at least see if I like the gun on Cliffy.

    Another vote for Hightower's small guns for BB huh? I'm definently going to have to try this one.

    Hmm... but then my Powerglide and Stormcloud would be without weapons.

    I used a gun from a reissue G1 Tantrum. Fits perfectly and looks good with him. I have the reissue Predaking gift set and because I display the Predacons as Predaking, I don't use any of the little guns he comes with so they work great with some of the classics guys.

    I gave my Bumblebee Classic Prime's gun since he has two guns.

    There's something satisfying about the little guy having a hefty weapon, and the black and silver of the gun went nicely with Bumblebee's own black and silver. :)

    Neat idea. I had reissue Predaking for awhile before I got out of collecting G1 stuff. Never thought of using any of their weapons to outfit my other Transformers with though. Might have to hit eBay up for some... got any pics?

    Nice. Very nice. Still, I don't think I'd be able to part my Prime with either of his weapons as they're integral to his transformation.

    Mine too, if you have RID Prime and Universe RID Prime [yellow ver.] you have guns for both of them [Bumble\Cliff] in their respective colours!

    i gave BB the aforementioned RiD hightower pistol and Cliffjumper is packin' Magnus' double barrel blaster since he's all armored up and probably will never come out from inside their :p  ~ i like Magnus's better for Cliffy then Prime's because it's all black...

    I think the pistol that comes with Classics Prowl/Silverstreak/Smokescreen is the perfect, ubiquitous weapon.

    All cool ideas guys and thanks again.

    I went with Hightower's small gun for Bumblebee. For Cliffjumper I ended up giving him RID Prime's small gun and I remembered G2 Prime's base rocket launcher can be held in hand so I gave that to him too. :D  I'll try to shoot some pics later today.

    Thanks again for your help guys. :thumb

    Micromaster superion's gun (or its knock off) is what I use for bumblebee.


    also animated swindle's gun works great for cliffjumper
    "I've got him dead center in my viewfinder" style.

    the pegs are 5mm.

    My BB also has Hightower's pistol, it's small, simple, and an appropriate weapon for everyone's favorite spy. Because BB was never about the blastin he's about getting the info without you ever knowing he's there.

    Cliffy on the otherhand is a fighter, whether it be with bare fists or big guns, he's the type to be on the front lines. If you have Classics Ultra Magnus and the City Commander armor, he can easily give up his smoke stack gun to CJ, and give the little guy some big firepower. If not, then some cheap alternatives would be some Energon era launchers. They're big, beefy guns that would look good on Cliffjumper.

    Pretty much any modern era, and some G1 and Re-issue guns can fit in the new figure's hands. It's more about getting the gun to fit the character.

    My Cliffjumper holds one of Powermaster Prime's black rifles. It's huge and hilarious like the sniper he pulled out of nowhere in G1. :D

    Cliffjumpers got the upgrade pistol and I use the hightower gun for BB. Another cool thing about that gun is that you can stash in his hood in vehicle mode
