    Is it just me or is anyone else somewhat dissapointed that Bumblebee and Cliffjumper didn't come with guns. While I was looking at them I noticed that I could fit Primes and Grimlocks guns in their hands. It was a perfect fit. Finally a reason for cliffjumper to have the firepower rating that he does.

    Any of the weapons from Armada, Energon and Cybertron will fit, as well as many G1/G2 guns. All the Classics save Mirage have compatible guns.

    Cliffjumper gets Ultra Magnus's smokestack gun, because Magnus sucks.

    One of the reasons I don't have BB now is cause he lacks a gun. Was never a fan of TFs without weaponry, always felt wierd. My alt Smokescreen just isn't the same since he lost his gun. =(

    I gave Bumblebee Astrotrain's gun, but I haven't figured out what to give Red Bumblebee yet.


    ...what? No, there is no Classics Cliffjumper.


    No, Hasbro just wants to keep the name.

    I've got two KO Prime guns for my BB and Cliffjumper. I've also given Prime a third weapon. It's a KO Prime Energy Axe. Peace out.

    I used a gun from one of the G1 Predacons seeing as I have like 10 guns that came with the gift set. It's a little tight but it fits.

    Sure there is. I just haven't figured out why they released him yellow, first. :p 

    I gave my Cliffjumper U Treadshot's gun. I've got him holding the bayonet in his other hand, in an inverted grip. I painted them steel, and the blade of the bayonet silver. Bumblebee doesn't get a weapon, because he's Bumblebee. I don't see why he needs any weapons to Chauffeur humans away from the battle zone, which always seemed to be primary function, after driving Spike around everywhere.

    Bumblebee has RiD Hightower's handgun, Cliffjumper (when I get him, still waiting to find him and Ramjet at the same time) will get Magnus' smokestack gun. Also, Hot Rod is using the guns from his G1 counterpart instead of the dorky flamethrower.

    I don't mind the flamethrower too much, but I tried to put the G1 guns in Classic's Hot Rod's hands and I guess I got the wave that the hand holes are too big:(

    Do you have the TFC reissue with the gun pegs that are thicker higher up on the handle?

    Saaaaay, can Classics hold Targetmaster guns?

    Nope, I only have my original G1s...I've never tried to put a Targetmaster in their hands, I'll have to try it.

    The Energon weapons from the scouts (y'know, the colored translucent ones) are great for the Classics - axes, spears, swords, maces, etc. Hurrah!

    Someone once posted a picture of Bumblebee's trailer attached to his arm as a claw. I prefer to make it look more like a Bat'leth. :) 

    Classics 2-pack Optimus Prime's gun also works well for Bumblebee/Cliffjumper.

    And seconding Ravenxl7: look at Big Lots (or comparable places) for crappy robot toys or knockoffs that have cool weapons. I had an awesome axe for Optimus Prime, but it disappeared. :-(

    Looks like BustaJesse and I had similar ideas, my Bumblebee is dual-wielding Headstrong's guns. As for Rodimus, I swapped his flamethrower missile for Mudflap's one. Perfect fit and looks much more normal.

    I bought a discounted Cybertron Defense Hot Shot so that I could give his knife to BumbleBee, also i teamed him up with that cop car mincon that turns into the gun.

    Gotta love those G1 Predacon guns... they fit, they're cool looking, and they come in pairs! :) 

    Oh, and of course, they're BLACK, instead of red, purple, green or various shades of neon...which describes a lot of other G1 guns unfortunately.
