    I never really liked the puny guns Hasbro gave Onslaught and had aimed to fix that ever since buying him over the summer. I had a junker G1 Snaptrap lying around and I decided to use the cannons for this little project. They connect with the pegs from the originals. As for color, I was originally going for silver, but thought a simple flat black would suffice.

    Was going to do the same thing with some Zoids cannons I had lying around.

    Nifty idea.

    I think that that is a huge improvement. hasbro gave him nothing but tiny little guns when what he needed was huge sucker like them. you have any ideas for a proper gun as well to replace that little wrist cannon?

    Thats an improvement. Me I wouldn't do something like that for mine I guess I like the puny blasters he has, just call me old fashioned I guess. But its cool.

    Nah, I'm not going to touch the arm cannon. I think the size of that is alright. And the original guns looked more like antennas than anything.

    One of the things I've done with my original cannons is to use them as police batons in his fists. They fit just right. After seeing this, I'm thinking it's a necessary mod.....

    (goes to find missiles.....)

    Yea, I don't know what I'm going to do with those now that they've been removed.
