    With Hasbro focusing on making Transformer weapons interchangable, I have found it alot of fun to switch around which weapons each character gets, in other to give them their own personality and give them better pairs.

    For example:

    -Skyhammer no longer has his giant block with a gun and sword attached to it. Instead, I have given him Thundercracker's bladed cannon (as I like the story in his bio that Optimus gave him an energon sword).

    -Thundercracker's chainsaw gun was repainted and given to Roadbuster, who now, along with Topspin's claw bow and his own chain gun, now gets an armored up Alt mod.

    -Since Thundercracker now has both his weapons taken, I gave him Laserbeak's twin machien guns.

    -While not a Transformer weapon, my Landmine/Doubledealer figure is currently using an energy rifle from a Lost in Space toy.

    Anyone else got some cool combos? I am debating about giving Recon Ironhides two guns to a bot (maybe Voyager Megs?) but I am not 100% sure yet if I want him to lose them.

    transformers weapons have always been interchanngable since the standardized 5mm pegs has it not? Mechtech interchangability is nothing new... its like 5mm peg weapons... interchangability.

    Anyways, I gave Onslaught universe, a FP bruticus double cannon. I gave Headrobots Hardhead 3 blaster rifles from Ven's blaster upgrade kits. My WFC prime is decked out with 4 shoulder cannons from infinity warfare, 2 arm guards + twin cannons ala Optimus Primal, and a custom target master from shapeway. My Drift's got 5 swords. My classics bumblebee is carrying armored core weapons. My roadbuster have 2 green chainsaws (dotm), and my dotm voyager prime have 5 fusion cannons (4 on backpack, 1 to hold) and 1 energon Axe on him. NONE of my transformers from classics/movie are armed with their initial weapons only.

    Besides Shockwave, I pretty much don't use the MT weapons.

    I have Skyhammer holding recon Ironhide's two hang guns instead of that clunker gun.
    I have Shockwave using ROTF deluxe Bludgeon's arm swords. One added to the MT arm canon and the other added on the left arm.

    As for mechtechs:

    Voyager shockwaves is dual-wielding his own cannons and blades.
    Skyhammer holds 4 of his weapons, the arm mount mechtechs are locked as blades with 2 ROTF Dirge missile launchers attached to each side of each gun.
    Leader Sentinel Prime has 2 HA backfire mounted on shoulders.
    Leader Ironhide have 2 Voyager ironhide cannons on the shoulders, haven't thought about what to put on his arms yet.
    Crankcase has 4 claw guns.
    HA Roadbuster have 4 chainsaw mechtechs from his deluxe counterpart. 2 wrist, 2 shoulders

    I gave DOTM Thundercrackers bladed weapon to Megatron, looks badass plugged into the MechTech port on his forearm. All of the clip weapons from the HA basics Whirl and Backfire have been given to other bots, don't remember who though lol. I find most of the MT is being tossed in a bag with other bits and bobs.

    I play around with Mech Tech and see how they look on Ironhide's left arm.

    Skyhammer has Sideswipes Mechtech rifle. Same plastic colour is nice, and it's teh right size and shape for a decent rifle.

    DotM Deluxe Ratchet has WFC Optimus' gun - since it looks pretty close to what I recall from the movies.

    Really wish HFTD Optimus had a 5mm hole in his fists. I'm tempted to see if I can find a drill bit so I can give him a decent gun. Probably his new voyager gun, until I get the deluxe.

    I gave Cyberverse Ironhide's combined cannons to Cyberverse Sentinel
    Prime.
    The combined guns then mimic Voyager Sentinel Prime's BFG. The combined cannon also looks really bad @$$ on top of the firetruck mode.

    Wreckage's gun/swords go nicely with Shockwave; especially love how the translucent reds compliment each other. They also store nicely on his back.

    The oodly red clips on Straxus/Darkmount's weapons match nicely with Hailstorm's red missiles.

    Lego shotgun (and technically a different Megatron's trailer/jetpack)
    Sometimes Lugnut takes Megatron's fusion cannon

    I gave deluxe Ironhide recon Ironhide's gatling gun,rifle,and one of his knives.You can actually stick the guns in the windshield for bot mode to simulate the dotm look and put the knife in the leg kibble for a holster. I gave bombshock the other knife as a machete.Dotm sideswipe uses classic camaro bb's pistols and I use various weapons to give out stealth force modes.

    You should really try the purple version, it really looks great on Shockwave.

    Skyhammer's got double Sideswipe rifles now. His original weapon was so clunky looking.
