    I was just gonna say it!

    Also although as standalone accessories Energon Bulkhead's thruster/backpack/weapon drone thingy and Energon Landmine's Backpack heavy claws/armor/backpack trailer thingy are pretty cool! I probably would not have bought either figure were it not for those accessories.

    I have been tempted on multiple occasions to buy generations skullgrin for the neutrally colored c-clip weapons, but I'm still hoping to find him in clearance at some point.

    I got to FINALLY play with DOTM Deluxe Bumblebee today thanks to a friend and the figure is pretty OK, but the Mechtech weapon is admittedly pretty cool. It reminds me of an Adeptus Astartes Plasma Cannon. Anyone else think that?

    DotM voyager Ironhide's mechtech weapon. IMO the figure is seven shades of manure, but the spinning cannon thing is hours of fun!

    Cybertron Soundwave's Laserbeak. Okay, so it's transforms into a barrel. It still fits in SW's chest and has a lot of articulation! I ended up buying the Blaster redeco on clearance just to have another birdy. Soundwave's pretty cool too, but the arm kibble almost kills it for me. Laserbeak is just awesome, though.

    Unicron's head is a cool accessory, but it doesn't completely outshine Primus.

    Ooooh, great point. Except for the "Soundwave's pretty cool," I personally think that between the awful legs, cartoonishly large fists, arm kibble, purple plastic, weak transformation and giant wing kibble the figure is pretty awful.

    Good call, except I'd go with the axe that comes with the deluxe 'Battle Begins' 2 pack with Megs. Figures are pure ass, but the axe completes voyager Animated Prime.
