    Right handed or left handed?

    Did a search but could not find a thread for this topic.
    Do most of you guys/gals pose your Transformers holding the gun/weapon on the right hand or left hand?
    And out of curiosity, did the creators of each Transformer character ever 'designate' which Transformers are right handed vs. left handed? Or are all Transformers ambidextrous?
    Enquirer mind wants to know?... :confused:

    I usually make them right handed.
    In case of a gun sword combo, the sword goes in the right hand.

    Technically, they would all be ambidextrous as their computer brain-things probably don't have the issues we have with one hemisphere being dominant over the other.

    That said, I mix them up when it comes to the toys. Prime, Magnus, Sunstreaker, Bluestreak, Thundercracker, Kickback, and Octane are wielding their guns lefty. Grimlock, Mirage, Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Drag Strip all aren't holding their guns (Drag Strip is posed like he'd rather fistfight). The others are righties.

    It's generally a spur of the moment thing. I don't really have a pattern of choosing one arm over the other

    Right handed, probably due to me being right handed, so it just seems like second nature to put it on its right hand.

    Although, they are robots. They can probably use whatever they feel like.

    Mostly right handed. If a mold has 2 hand-held weapons and also gets repainted (like Classics Prime into Classics Magnus), I'll switch the hands they hold the weapon with.

    Classics Nemesis Prime, by the way, holds both guns in his right hand - the big wind-wave gun in the bottom of the fist, and the smokestack gun on the top. The black plastic of both makes it look like one big multi-barreled arm cannon.

    Same here. The only time I usually have a "left-handed" TF is if I need the weapon in that hand to allow easier placement of other figures on the shelf.
