    Like the title says. Just curious to see which ones are worth getting. This gimmick has really grown on me. My current favorite is Ratchets saw. That thing is awesome.

    Ratchet's saw is really friggen cool. I think my two favorites however are Bumblebee's and Takara's Optimus Prime gun/sword, it comes with the Voyager Prime and trailer.

    Most fun to play with: Ratchet

    Best Deluxe MechTech (the ones which can't "lock out") for display: Sideswipe. What a cool looking gun.

    Best overall: Shockwave. Film-accurate and integrates well, and locks into a secondary mode. Only points lost are for poor compatibility with other bots.

    Special note: Sentinel Prime's shield is a great accessory, but as MechTech it fails as its transformation is silly.

    Sideswipe's was my first mechtech weapon, and it's a nice gun that looks like a gun and doesn't have a claw or something hidden in it. Nice blade too.

    Overall, I think I have to give it to Megatron for having one that integrates into his alt mode flawlessly. It actually blends in and is needed even on top of that to fill in the gap. While it's not the best weapon ever, it does do a nice G1 Fusion cannon homage sort of.

    I also have to give props to the small solid-piece guns on DX Topspin and Leadfoot. They're simple guns you can put on anyone without looking cartoony.

    That's my favorite as well, but I'm not about to buy more copies of the figure to get more guns (or steal from the 'try me' window).

    Out of the three Dark of the moon figures I have, Ratchets is definitely the best. Primes is good too, but Ratchets is better. Megatrons is a bit meh. Wouldve prefered the shot gun, now that I've seen the film.

    Gotta vote for Skyhammer's gun / claw.
    It's the only one I own.

    From what I've seen on others, I'd say Shockwave's though.

    Whirl, and pinpointer are the best two mechtech targetmasters.
    Really the human alliance weapon modes do more for me, than the regular mechtechs.
    Picking up robots that double as weapons kits for the rest of your collection is brilliant.

    Otherwise, Roadbuster/Thundercrackers chainsaw blaster is my favorite. It has a very smooth Animated lockdown esq chainsaw conversion. And otherwise it resembles the main gears of war rifles.

    Ratchet. I have spent more time than I would like to admit just sitting there and spinning that blade.

    I have Shockwave and I like it cause its screen accurate but I still like Rarchets better especially after see TFTM for the first time in a while on CN and he used a similar saw to cut off Brawls arm. I'll check out Top Spin and Voyagers Megs, Prime and Ironhide.

    How'd I forget that? Probably would be my favorite but the gearing is a bit off on mine.

    Of the two I own, Voyager Prime's, because both modes work convincingly. Sideswipe's rifle makes for a nice, chunky, albeit generic, heavy weapon.
