    How many recently released Bots and Cons can hold their classic counterparts' accessories, or the accessories of other, unrelated figures? Energon Sharkticon mold can hold Battle Ravage's mace/tail like Gnaw's original weapon, but will that figure's tail or Maceration laser gun be able to be held?

    Are there any other Optimus Prime figures that can hold the original's rifle?

    Which pre-Armada toys by pure coincedance have powerlinx hardpoints on them that you can attach Mini-cons too?

    Give some examples of toys you realized can use other figures weapons.

    Most of Energon\Cybertron figures can hold each other's weapons due to standardized fist holes.

    Classics Bumblebee can easily hold RID 2000 Prime's small handgun.

    WFC Prime's gun makes a very stable and awesome riffle for RTS Perceptor.

    C-clip guns [specifically talking about Kup's, others too] can fit on the side grills of ROTF Brawn\Outback, a mould released before the C clip business.

    Classics Deluxe Prime's 'Tommy Gun' also fits Generations Perceptor.

    The Skyboom Shield clips on to G1 Ultra Magnus left arm when he's in his armored form.

    Reissue G1 Starscream can hold Double Targetmaster weapons. Repaint a few of each and we could have new character Seeker/Targetmasters.

    I'm saddened to report that ROTF Breakdown can't use G1 Breakdowns' weapons. Pity I loved the large cannons that the Comniner minis had in car modes.

    If I remember correctly, Device Label Blaster can hold G1 Blaster's gun.

    This.
    Also, to me, RTS Bumblebee looks good with Classics Prowl's gun.

    I use Action Master weapons on a bunch of shit, namely by way of Cyberfire Bee holding the black double barrel prime trailer ones. If I ever get a TF Prime Bee, they'll probably have to share.

    Also, and this sort of happened by accident, but my WFC Soundwave has the blue sword from the Ultra BW Optimus Primal.

    RTS Perceptor looks awesome with G1 Perceptor's weapons. Bought an extra set right when the RTS version was released.

    Classics Prime looks pretty good with Powermaster Prime's black guns in hand!

    I have an extra G1 Prime rifle that I made a custom handle for a couple years ago. I now have Voyager Prime Optimus Prime holding it.

    I have RID Wheeljack holding Skullcruncher's and Weirdwolf's guns. They look like they were made for him.

    I have WFC prime in assault mode (front of shelf)- he's got powermaster prime's grey double barreled cannons on his forearms, G1 powermaster car's (can't remember his name atm) gun in his right hand and used to wield leader armada primes big gun in his other hand (until I traded my armada prime away recently) so now he's just got his gun in his left hand. He's pretty sweet with all the 5mm holes on him

    I have BW Transmetal Rattrap holding G1 Swindle's pistol, it's a pretty good likeness.

    Classics Bee also used to hold Cybertron Landmine's gun without the missile since it does look a bit like a stinger gun.
