    So after messing with my RID Voyager Optimus, I was articulating to myself how much I dislike that mechtech "gun". I realized that I don't just find it useless, or hate it, I think it might be the absolute WORST weapon ever to be packaged with a transformer toy and how the world might be an ever so slightly better place if it didn't exist. So I thought it might be fun to have others chime in with their thoughts on the worst weapons/accessories ever included with a transformer.

    My entry is the Optimus gun described above. I would, however, give (dis)honorable mentions to the "carrot of doom" club that came with Animated Snarl and the "comb of doom" that came with Classics Octane/Tankor. At least Snarl's crappy club looked like a crappy club without needing to hold a button down like on Prime's rifle, and at least in Octane's case the crappy weapon was an integral part of his alt mode.

    I would love to hear anybody else's thoughts.

    As much as I LOVE Alternators, some of the "guns" are really stretching the use of the word, lol

    Most of the DOTM and PRiD weapons. Seriously, stop making huge, oversized, gimmicky weapons.

    Animated Voyager Prime's axe and hose gun.

    It made me buy that Prime/Megatron 2-pack just for the axe.

    RID Prime Voyager Optimus' gun is bad because it doesn't look like anything in its folded mode. FE Prime's sword isn't that great either because the peg shows up when Optimus is holding it. I hope a 3rd party company will make a sword for Prime that will cover his hand all the way around.

    Since we're on the subject of weapons, I'm gonna come out & say that I think some of the Mechtech weapons are actually pretty cool, one of which being the claw/gun thing that Crankcase comes with. This one not only looks like it was made specially for the figure (I actually don't even think it's been reused), but the colours match as well as the shape, and in my opinion anyway, gives off a likeness to what Inferno had in Beast Wars.

    ... and yeah, if anyone's got one of those that they don't care about, stop me a pm or visitor message. :)

    Not-very-awesome giganto-comb becomes awesome riot shield.

    Have to agree on Animated Prowl's streetlight.

    I bought FE Optimus Prime for the same reason because RiD Prime Optimus' gun sucked. I didn't think Animated Optimus Prime's jetpack axe was bad. The giant axe fit in with the dynamicity of the toy.

    Worst for me is most 'mehtech' and horrible translucent Energon weapons, especially on the combiners.

    Prime's sword is accurate.

    Anyway, for the topic. I'd say the Mech-Techs are one of the worst. Too big, and for the most part are useless. The one Mech-Tech I like the most is Takara Optimus' gun blade.

    Classics Bumblebee's jet ski. It transformers into some effective kibble.
