    Can the Autobots Access their weapons in vehicle mode? We Know most decepticons can but could the autobots.(see references for the cons below)

    Instances in which Decpticons show the ability to access their weapons in vehicle mode:
    - Megatron - Darkness Rising part 5 - he fires at a arcee and co.
    - Starscream - Out of his head - He attempts fire his missiles at optimus
    - Knock out - Speed metal - He electrocutes that jerk
    - Breakdown - Deux ex machina - Fires missiles at autobots: Arcee and bumblebee as well as optimus
    - Ground Vehicons - Darkness Rising part 1 - shoots at jack and arcee
    - Aerial Vehicons - Darkness rising part 5 - Fires missiles at Autobots

    I'm going to say I don't think so because we've had scenes where Autobots transformed, shot, then transformed back into vehicle again.

    The only thing I can think of off the top of my head for the Autobots is Bumblebee's ability to dispense an oil slick in his car mode as seen in Speed Metal. But that's not really a "weapon" so much as it's a...trap, I guess you could say.

    Don't forget the guns on KO's rear end when he chases and shoots at BB in Speed Metal.

    Well, the Bots would have no reason to chase and shoot at the Cons anyway.

    Not to mention Skyquake using his machineguns against BB and Optimus after having "achieved air superiority", and launching heat seekers at Agent Fowler.

    I think it's a given that anybody who turns into a fighter jet is gonna have some weaponry in alt-mode. What I'm wondering is what kind of heat is Soundwave packing? According to tfwiki, his alt-mode is similar to the General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper, which is capable of carrying up to 14 air-to-ground missiles.
