    Lately when a carformer like RoTF Sideswipe and Generations Drif t has had swords for weapons while their remolds have guns.

    I wonder if Hasbro is intentionally doing that.

    Drift's remold was definitely planned as such. His swords only work for him alone.

    Sideswipe's never been remolded, at least overtly. If you're talking about Sidearm Sideswipe, that's a completely new mold from head to toe, and based on the weapons he used in the final battle.

    I'm not sure I understand your point, at all. Intentional? I suspect so- I don't think that the guns accidently showed up on the sprues.

    As to a "pattern", it's swords and guns. Not really a shocking pattern since those are likely the most common TF weapons. If there was a revival of nunchuks or crossbows or something, maybe we could call it a pattern.

    Changing weapons on the remold goes back at least to Classics Ramjet. On cars, TFTM Jazz is an early example.

    Ooh, Energon Inferno/Roadblock as well. :)
