    A lot of third party figures have some pretty kick-ass weapons and accessories that come with them. Some of them I'd love to see getting release separately from their figures. What do you guys think?

    A few of my favorites would be the shotguns that came with FP Colossus. The shotguns go so well with so many figures (It was like they where made for Generations Springer & Sandstorm).

    The twin Ion Blasters that came with Xovergens Patriot figures look awesome with the likes of Orion of BH Prime (they are however sadly hollow).

    Also love the massive cannons that came with iGear's Specialist figures.

    FP Colossus Shotguns hands down. If you have any Wreckers in your collection, they're perfect.

    The Ancient Swords from Dr. Wu are pretty good too for outfitting MTMTE characters like Cyclonus and Whirl

    ^ Still waiting on MFB to arrive with other stuff I pre-orderd, but it looks cool.

    The FP shotguns really are just awesome for the wreckers. Even for Sandstorm in VTOL mode, seperating them into the grenade launcher/ pistol mode and attaching them to his nads make for better vehicle mode armaments than the weapon he came with.

    MFB is my all time favorite, but it's also really only good for Swerve.

    The Corbot V War Axe is one of the best, it's incredibly detailed and very high quality. It's meant for WFC Optimus, but it looks fantastic with a lot of figures. I had it earmarked for FP Assaulter when I bought it.

    The ArtTek guns are all pretty nice, but they're all modeled after pretty specific character weaponry, so they're not overly versatile. Still, I do have the Flame and Ice versions of the Rex blaster to use with other figures. They're not overly detailed or painted, but that actually helps them sort of blend in with Hasbro figures.

    The "Shining Glory" set from MMC is also worth picking up even if you don't have Terminus Hexatron. You get two large chromed rifles for like $7. I'm not the biggest fan of chrome, but for the price you really can't go wrong with that set.

    I definitely would love to see the Colossus shotguns released separately as well though, they seem to look fantastic no matter what figure is using them. I also like Code's rifles a lot, I would buy several of them if they were released individually in black or grey.

    collossus weapons
    weapons with i gear PP05 (see my sig). i really wish they sold these separately.

    i dont think i have many other figs that came with a lot of weapons, although Dr Wu seems to make a lot of addons.

    The UFO and FWI weapons for Bayverse figures are just great, I think. iGear's weapons for Kup and Perceptor are also great bang for the buck (and I even love the weapons locker box they come in). Dr. Wu's weapon accessories tend to be pricey but very cool, especially his diecast metal stuff (though some of it, like the metal storm ion rifle, tend to be too heavy for their intended figure's arm joints to hold up without problems). FP and MT's weapons are super fun to mess around with, I find.

    I think the Feds would step in if Fansproject released the Colossus Shotguns on their own as it would mean they'd literally started printing money...BaDoomBa!

    No seriously, I'd throw money at FP for some of the Shotguns.

    Forgot about MT's stuff! That lazer sword from battle tanker was incredible. Not to mention the replacement drift sword.

    totally agreed on those fp shotguns.

    Also I'd like to see more 5mm pegs on these things, being unable to attach a weapon in alt mode sucks and makes me not want to buy the weapon. I dont mind with g1, but with anything else I want somewhere to put the weapon.

    Colossus' weapons. I really wish FP would just sell extra sets.

    Completely agree on Colossus' shotguns, but also his sniper rifle. Especially if you get the repainted/reissued ones.

    Their paint is just super crispy and superior over the originals. Plus the black and silver scheme fits with just about anyone, like has already been mentioned. I was able to buy the weapons and combiner parts from the second release off of a board member and have absolutely no regrets.

    Also, the rifle that came with Recoiler is badass! I wish that I could get another one of those as well! Revolver's modular weapons turned out pretty great as well.

    Dr.Wu's rainmaker set is pretty cool, though over priced to some.

    Infinity Warfare's giant sword sets are pretty fun and versatile, if you are okay with the transparent, Energon style.

    Colossus' weapons - Cannot count the times I see people asking "where did you get those guns" and they turn out to be Colossus' weapons.

    I've got real high hopes for all the crazy stuff coming with PE's ROTF Bludgeon mold upgrades; hoping we'd hear something more about those kits soon.

    Corbot V Axe is awesome, the FP Colossus Shotgun is just sheer genius, Dr. Wu Matrix Sword is fantastic value, and his Skybreaker (Prime Star Sabre) and Dark Tyrant (Dark Star Sabre) are beautiful but pricy.

    The best weapon is the carbot V axe in my view.

    Like most everyone else, Colossus' weapons are the best, and I know it's not 3p but AoE Voyager Hound. I hate most of the movie stuff, I only own Skyhammer, but I'm buying a Hound just for the nice set of cheap weapons that can be had with him.

    Dr. Wu's Rain Storm cannon and Springer's Heavy Artillery Shell launcher that accompanies it are two VERY fantastic weapons that I don't believe should be forgotten and need to have noble mention here.

    Also, Wu did a High-end repaint of Springer's gun that came out fantastic. I paired it with MMC's headstrong to homage his original G1 bazooka weapon.

    I kind of like Maketoys Utopia's red guns. I wish they'd sell them separately.
