    Apart from the weapons they came w/ and the ones from 3rd party accessory packs, what weapons have you all found for these guys (from older transformers or otherwise)?

    I gave my Botcon Banzai-Tron the energon weapons from Cruellock and Divebomb. That's the nice thing about that line, the uniform weapon pegs.

    Most G1 weapons do not have 5mm pegs, and therefore will not fit in most modern transformers' fists. The ones that do, and that I use, are:

    Swindle's big gun
    Powermaster Prime's rifles
    Topspin's gun
    Twintwist's gun

    Recon Ironhide's weapons look cool with Classics Prime.

    Bumblebee and Jazz's guns fit nicely, but Grimlock's is a pretty tight squeeze. Still fits though! I've been careful to check Bugbite's hands for stress marks and there aren't any.

    The only non-"Third Party"* weapons I use so far are an oversized KO RM Convoy's Ion Cannon with a shaved down handle for Henkei Prime, and then Armada Superpants Prime's large cannon for my custom Henkei Cliffjumper.

    I also have RiD Hightower's pistol, but no one's using that at the moment.


    *Third Party products need licenses. FP and iGear don't, hence the quotation marks.

    RiD (Not sure about G1's though it may also be true) Ruination's rifle fits perfectly in Universe Onslaught's hands.

    I have G2 Sideswipe's green launcher in Uni Sideswipe's hand.

    The Binaltech Arming kit star saber is like the only weapon I could find that fit's Uni Hotshot's hand. Which is great because he looks awesome with it and it's a total throwback to his use of it in Armada.

    Movie Sideways/Deadend can hold the big Armored Core model kit Sniper rifle sorta

    And I made a custom gun for Hound out of one of those crappy RoC Viper guns. I chopped off the stock/handle, glued on a peg that fits his hand and now he has a nice, shiny silver rifle. Landmine's gun is from one of those JP weapon kits you can find on HLJ and such, but off the top of my head I can't remember what they're called.

    I gave another of those model kit guns to Stocade as well.

    I'm sure I have plenty of other mix-and-matched weapons on my bots, but most of them are mainly just guns from other TFs. Though I too must praise the concept of the standardized peg size, as it's always nice to be able to give some bots some extra punch and the standard peg size just makes it so much easier.

    Prime is holding Animated 2-pack Prime's axe, Megatron's got G1 Megatron re-issue's mace, with Animated Laserbeak perched on his shoulder. Since Prime forfeited his windvane gun, Cliffjumper's taken it. Onslaught's got his G1 rifle.

    yeah, I'm kind of a mix too. I have a couple of the AC weapons kits too, though I'm kinda stuck on who to give a drill lance/sword to.......

    I've also found out that many of the micromasters bases guns fit as well. My magnus has some of groundshakers missiles in his shoulders.

    I use an extra Classics Rodimus gun as Sideswipes launcher. I'd like to find a missile that also fits in it besides the flame.
