    Hello,

    Powerizer Prime is a decent figure with a terrible weapons pack in. Anyone know of a Shapeways replacement, third party option, or another cheap weapon option?

    Just use the main line deluxe Arcee's gun, fits more with Optimus IMO.

    Not currently, but I would hope somebody out there realizes there is more than enough interest to warrant one.

    I've been using Classics Jetfire's gun. Looks pretty nice with him.

    Not show accurate, but it works well enough.

    Those are for the FE version, not the RiD one.

    The FE version is sold out everywhere (including Toy Arena) and going for ridiculous prices on eBay.
    Or did you mean the RiD version with the Shockwave minicon?

    But they are made with 5mm pegs which means technically PRID Optimus should be able to hold them.

    Except for the fact that PRID Optimus's hands are open at the top, and the 5mm pegs on that shape ways model don't look very long. I could see them falling out at the slightest touch.

    Is it just my figure, or do Optimus's hands prevent him from holding Arcee's gun snugly?

    I have Prime's hand tilted up slightly and that allows the gun to fit into the hand with no issues on my figure. I can shake it at that point and it does not fall off.

    Except for ones with any kind of handguard in front, due to his long fingers. For example, he can't hold PRID Arcee's gun by the rear peg (which is too bad, since that would give it the "built-in weapon" look).

    Even the front peg doesn't work that great because if you push it down as far as it goes, the outside edges catch and give it a slight inward bend.

    I've also tried Universe Silverbolts gun but the peg is barely long enough and is therefore really precarious in hand.

    I'm going to try modding teh pack in light gun for now.
