    Now while I don't care for the gimmick as a whole for reasons I have stated in the past and see no need to repeat here, some of the weapons are actually really really cool. Be it because of their overall look, how well they are implemented or incorporated into the design of a figure, or just because the actual mechtech gimmick works really well.

    For me I've got 4 that I actually really genuinely like, 3 of those I own and 1 I do not.

    Crankcase and Roadbuster both have really cool guns. Roadbuster's I dig the look of it with the saw on the sides, and the gimmick itself is really really cool on this weapon, just wish it could lock out in place. Crankcase's has a decent gimmick, but this one is more of a like because of how cool of a gun it actually is.

    Shockwave and Megatron (Megatron being the one I do not yet own) I really like because..one they lock in place, but primarily..they just incorporate into the vehicle and robot mode of the figures so well, it's just awesome.

    Lazerbeak's looks pretty cool too.

    I have Crankcase and Megs so far, and I really like both of their weapons.

    Judging only from pics, Shockwave's seems very cool and integrated with the figure, and if he weren't so expensive I'd get Optimus only for his kickass gun. I don't really care much for Starscream's, and Skyhammer's. Agree with you on Laserbeak, his machineguns own. I just wish mechtech weapons fit on Universe Onslaught's hands, I always wanted to give him some proper weaponry.

    I like Prime's weapon the best. Bumblebee's is pretty cool also. I do agree that Roadbuster's is great, but wishes it could lock in place.
    Has anyone taken the spring out of Roadbuster's? And if you have, is it stable?

    Yes, it seems to sit somewhat safely in both modes (I don't have the figure but several people have done it in radicons)

    I actually tried to remove the spring in Roadbuster's gun, but it ended up too floppy so I put it back in. However, something must have screwed the spring up, so now it stays very solidly in both forms with the spring still in. Bit of pleasant surprise with that one.

    I think Megatron's is the best out of the ones I have. It fits very well with the figure.

    I only have Optimus, Megatron and Leader Bumblebee's. I like Optimus's the best, big ass gun which is cool looking. I played with a store Skyhammer's, it is fun. I will get him one day

    Mech Tech turns out better than I expected. It's a shame that they aren't what exactly as promised, transformable weapons. They are just a huge ass weapon that transforms into another slightly different one. Here's hoping for more 'advanced' mech tech

    Ratchet's by far. Its a little spinning blade that comes out spinning due to some nice, simple engineering inside of it.

    Crankcase. Soundwave's tentacles have nothing on that grabbing claw.


    Oh, and Megatron's.
