    Weapons on your toys.
    What do you like to see?
    No weapons?
    Weapons with spring rockets
    Weapon with no gimmick. (Or maybe fold away like prowl's and jazz's)

    I'm a huge fan of the fold away guns. They look better and fit with the figure. And I'm sick of spring loaded clear missile sticking out of my weapons ugly-style.

    Is there anyone who like the spring loaded weapons? Or what kind of weapon do you want'na see come out?

    I like regular guns. Not a fan of missiles. But any gun is good as long as it looks good..

    Gun or sword, the bigger the better!
    No missile or springloaded gimmicks. Fold away or extendable is cool.

    No big preference, though big melee weapons like swords and axes are always kewl. I tend to prefer built-in/flip-out weaponry over hand-held guns myself.

    As for dislikes, I'd say any firing missile molded to look like a big plume of flame or stuff like that is toward the top of the list.

    i like them all, but all i really want is some hand held weapons, and maybe untraditional weapons, like a crossbow, or just a bow *yay tfa rodimus!*

    i DO like missile launchers sometimes, not so much when they are clear, because then they tend to look a little silly. like classics hotrod's gun looks silly in his hand with that blue flame in it, but it does look nice in there in car mode.

    i also like weapons that tuck away in vehicle mode, *more so then i like weapons that just go on top, like in g1* with the exceptions of maybe tanks, like the machine guns that also become hand guns, i like that.

    how ever i do NOT want them to start looking like realistic gi joe style guns, i like them looking futuristic, and like laser guns.

    i also like axes, swords, and other blades. i like weapons that can attach "holstered" too. so they can have their weapons, with out actually having to hold them.

    a good example of this would be blurr and drift.

    but i also like shields too, we need more transformers with shields :)

    Weapons like Terradive's trident are nice, original and it looks cool. Melee weapons allow cooler poses, rather than the traditional gun.

    I like weapons! Though if it makes sense for the character to not have weapons, like say Perceptor, then I don't mind too much if he doesn't have weapons.

    I'd like to see more weapons that have different display options, like Jazz's gun with the option to plug in the speakers for a bigger gun, or the Masterpiece Rodimus Photon Eliminator. Something that gives you some decent options to display the toy in different ways.

    I'd also like to see more heavy weapons. Things like Prime Skyquake's huge minigun, or Generation 1 Ironfist's mounted barrel fed machinegun.

    More melee weapons are cool too, or toys with melee and ranged weapons together.


    What I'm not so keen on are the Energon series style rocket launchers. I don't mind them sometimes, because they do fit with certain toys. But when the gun is huge and oversized compared to the toy holding it, I tend to feel the dislike a bit.

    I HATE box+stick missile launchers, at least as we have them now with the whole safety thing. I love unique weapon designs without annoying gimmicks, or springs. The energon weapons were my favorite part of an otherwise mediocre line, as they were so unique and customizable. Swords, mauls, hammers, sniper rifles, big ass machine guns, axes...you get the idea. Botcon Skyquake's sword, the JP exclusive black Cruellock's sword-breaker/sword, and FP Bruticus' array of weaponry are my favorite accessories of all time.

    I prefer weapons that are integrated into the tranformer's bodies, like Battle Blabe Bumblebee's armcannon and axe. These are robots, why would they rely on weapons that can be knocked out of their hands?

    For some reason, I've always liked little handguns. I guess it's a refresher from the usual large cannons we get with many TFs.
    Also, as someone else mentioned, melee weapons are awesome.

    Something to make weapons compatible with guns from other figures. (Example: you can take DOTM roadbuster's saw and attach it to jazz's gun)

    Huge melee weapons would be killer (literally!)

    Also fold away guns are cool. Spring loaded stuff is not my cup 'o tea.

    Hmmmm yes i get what your saying.
    But maybe Perceptor is a bad exsample because he seems basic off of IDW's

    I can't think of anyone else who's weaponless.....

    I'm a sucker for hair triggers and lots of missiles. I guess that's why I like ROTF Ramjet and Skywarp so much lol.

    It depends on what the character packed in the show. I do love BFGs, though. I also like the missiles on Cybertron Scattorshot, because I can get some good distance outta them.
