    Was anyone else pleased that the transformers had a good variety of weapons, and not just the standard "laser blast" (color-coded for good guys and bad guys, no less) from the G1 cartoon?

    Blackout had a rapid-fire anti-personnel projectile weapon plus his big pulse cannon thingie, Starscream had missiles, Ironhide had both rockets and an energy cannon, and Ratchet had (in my opinion) the coolest weapon effect, some kind of fast-firing energy pistol that fired a stream of discrete red bolts...it just looked and sounded awesome.

    Hopefully they'll keep it up for the sequel. It would be cool to see individualized effects for Cliffjumper's glass gas, Tracks' black beam rifle, or Octane's flamethrower... or whatever their updated versions are armed with...

    Yeah! It was cool to see a variety. I loved Blackout's weapon.

    I thought it was cool they had a mixture of energy and bullet weapons too!

    I noticed that Frenzy actually had ammo belts hanging from his hands when he armed his guns.

    Deffinatly Blackout's EMPs. Megs' chain mace. Prime's sword. Barricade's... thingie. BB's missle pods! I loved those! SS's gun was killer! And Blackout's propeller-blade that was stored in his arm. So glad to see it didn't come from his back.

    LOVED Megs' big cannon. But he only used it once, and it had like, no effect. Blackout had a better gun effect.
