    In my opinion, many TFs come under-armed. What do you do to remedy the situation?

    My Hftd deluxe Ironhide uses the two guns and one knife from Recon Ironhide. They even store in bot mode. The guns slide in between the windshield and the back for a dotm look,and the knife slides into the leg kibble if angled correctly

    I re-purpose weapons, buy shapeways stuff, or create my own.

    Aside from having the G3 Trailer, leave them as-is. Most of my Classics figures have one gun, and that's good enough for me.

    After looking, I don't see a Deluxe and up figure that's unarmed. Like I said, I have the G3's pistol for Bumblebee, and Warpath... has his chest.

    Shapeways stuff is always awesome.

    EDIT:: (since everyone's doing it) Have a look in my store too. Everything goes live as soon as the test shots arrive so I can validate design quality.

    Shapeway's weapons generally have a 5mm peg, but the cheaper option most of the time, is Armored core weapons. They are more detailed and professional grade. Not dissing the Shapeway artists as I have many shapeway stuff, but shapeway's printing level is still a prototype level.

    So basically I have a TON of TF weapons (from buying people's), and then a massive amount of armored core weapons (from HLJ), and then quite a few shapeways

    the weapons are mostly sold out (the older sets), but occasionally, you can find a stash of them someone selling. I think, I have at least 3 copies of each. I will post pics when my internet back home is back x.x

    Forgot to add-

    I gave my Cliffjumper a nice parts-swap and repaint, then gave him Armada Optimus' large gun.

    Bought this Gundam gatling gun for Megs' BFG.

    Also added these missle clusters from a Yamato super strike parts to Onslaught. Not like he needed them after the FP upgrade though. LOL!

    They fit in altmode (and on Bruticus) too.

    But the one I like the best is this Gundam gun I gave to Windcharger.

    [​IMG]

    I just think its cool how it fits on his wrist. Also stores in altmode.

    Just a few I have pics of.

    It's this one right here...

    GUNDAM GUY: M.S.G. Weapon Unit 20 Gatling Gun - Review

    The coolest thing is it has a tiny motor in it that spins when you wind it up.



    Forgot about this one too. Munitioner's shoulder cannon came from a Gundam as well I think.

    If you look closely you can see that it can attach to his gun in altmode.
