Nemesis Prime and other 'evil' versions are lefties, because...lefties are our evil twins.
My MLS are all right handed, especially AOA Wolverine. Heh.
About 90% of mt TFs are right handed. Those that aren't either have a funny shaped gun where I want one side showing or I just randomly put it in that hand.
Interesting. A quick overview of my Alts and others on display shows most of them are lefties, even though I'm right handed.
Mine are almost exclusively lefties, unless there is no choice. The only odd one out, off the top of my head at least, is Guilledart. Yes, he only has a left hand, but his gun looks so cool held by his Triceratops head...
Right handed for posing
Duel handed for kicking aSS!!!
I just stick to what the show depicts...
Are any of your Transformers left-handed?
Just wondering. Do you pose any of your TF toys with their weapon in their left hand? I tend to do this with Sunstreaker, as traditionally the left hand is the less favourable side (though I'm sure no one believes that today). This has also led to the french adjective 'gauche', meaning 'awkward', as I'm sure anyone would feel in Sunstreaker's company.
i thought u were crazy when i first saw this title...lol...but then i read it and realised ur right...all my figures have their weapon on the right hand nothign on the left....so, i'd say no...lol
I'm about ditto with Heshanj. Funny thing is thou I write Lefty. Well time to change some things around now.
From as a kid I almost always put the gun in the TF's left hand. I didn't think or care about making them left or right handed but I think I realized why I did that... I'm right handed so it was just natural to hold the figure with my left hand and put the gun in with my right hand. Since the figure would be facing me, that meant it'd go in his left hand.
All of mine are left-handed, because I'm left-handed!
My bots have their primary weapon in the left hand, and secondary weapons in their right hands. The only exception is Overlord, because his Mega-Child attaches to his left arm in the show, and I thought the combination of Mega-Child + Gun was a little too much.
Only the evil ones.
Same here. The only time my bots have a weapon in their right hand is if their posse calls for it. For the most part though since I'm left handed, so are my transformers.
I usually put the weapon in the right hand, unless that's impossible for the figure (eg - toys without a proper hand on that side), doesn't work with the pose or doesn't fit properly in my display shelf. If the figure has two weapons, I put bladed/melee weapons in the right hand and guns/projectile weapons in the left.
Depends on my mood.
Yeah I do that with quite a few of them, especially repaints or remolds. Just using Universe as an example, Sunstreaker and Prowl are right handed, Silverstreak and Sideswipe are left handed. Sideswipe is another case though since I have a G1 Rewind gun in place of his rocket launcher over the right shoulder...if a character has a rocket launcher on their right shoulder I'll put their handgun in their left hand (and vice versa if the rocket launcher is over the left shoulder) to balance out the look.
When i saw the title i thought in production errors and toys with 2 left hands. XD It can happen. ^^
Hm..cant rmember but i think my bots have all their weapons in their right hands. Except BW TM Megatron, he always has the tail/gun in his left hand. Oh! G2 Prime too.
It depends which hand can hold the guns better.
I just switch 'em up based on which way they're facing (I tend to display my figures not head-on, but slightly angled). So the ones that are facing slightly leftward (my left, not theirs) tend to have their weapons in the left hand just because it a) showcases the weapon better and b) it keeps it out of the way of their neighboring 'bots. So really, while I never consider it consciously, I guess about half my collection is left-handed! Though it switches up a lot.
Current southpaws include Sentinel Prime, Swoop, Lugnut, Classics Ironhide Mirage and Silverstreak, Botocn Springer, MP Starscream (holding gun-mode Megatron), Titanium and City Commander Magnus, Alt. Nemesis Prime, Alt. Sideswipe, and all three G1 Insecticons. Plus many others.
I'm a southpaw. Only left-handed figures I have are the special ones. It also depends on the display also.
I also make all of my shattered glass ones lefties.
