    Hi All!
    Cheap/easy weapon idea from you old Kreons/Legos:
    Take a Lego pole piece that starts small then gets bigger (this just sounds wrong...)
    Clip away the small bit (mazel tav)
    Then add a Kreon weapon to the top of the pole (clip a bit of the handle down).
    Now you have a weapon for your mini bots like Cosmos pictured here

    That made me snicker more than it should have.

    Incidentally, the weapons are pretty much 3mm, which work with the Prime Cyberverse line. Adding the piece to make it 5mm is quite clever, though.

    I have been using the clear cylindrical piece as a cup of engex for quite a time, but you beat me to using the weapons.

    On a side note the Technic pins work jusst as well.

    I once built a gun out of Legos for a Hardhead and Ptero (I lost Furos).

    You can also get this piece sans pole. They tend to come bulk in sets, with a few spares.

    I've got a bunch of these, I used pieces of crazy straw. It slipped right over the existing post and a drop of super glue made it permanent.
