    I was wondering, how do you guys arm your figures? With all the 5mm ports, you can give anyone pretty much any weapon. Do you give your figures weapons that aren't their's? Or do you throw all the weapons into a big pile?

    When it comes to the TFP voyagers, I mainly give them other weapons.

    So like with Prime, I gave him Arcee's jumbo gun. Then with Dreading and Ultra Magnus, I just made them weapons from Lego parts.

    For the most part, deluxes and up keep their weapons. Basics/scouts often donate their weapons to the higher classes. I don't collect a lot of movie figures and when i do they often stay in alt mode, so their weapons get offered up as well.

    as i look at my shelf filled with basics/scouts i only see three figures with weapons, I didn't realize how accurate my above statement was

    I don't really mix weapons. I did get a mechtech gun with a bootleg voyager Prime trailer I bought so I use that with my TFP Prime. It looks better than the gun he comes with. Other than that I think everyone has their own weapons.

    I tend to mix and match weapons. I gave RTS Jazz gun to Classics Bumblebee and Pretender Jazz's gun to RTS Jazz. DOTM Laserbeak's non Mech Tech gun to RTS Kup. Universe Sideswipe has 77' Camaro BB's launcher w/ a G1 Sideswipe missile as his shoulder rocket. I like to use all different weapons with my figures.. ones I feel suit the character better than the weapon they were packaged with. Since I buy many large lots of lots of toys I usually have surplus weapons around.

    I don't normally weaponize mine, due to having kids in the house and they tend to "accidentally" knock them over on a regular basis. Which means, guns, missiles, ect get knocked off the shelf and then the cat gets to them, and they are gone forever.

    I keep all my weapons in tackle type boxes, separated by faction, then when I want to give them a weapon for pictures, I pick and choose and then put it back when I'm doing with the pictures.

    Usually I just give them their own guns. A few exceptions though would be Classics Cliffjumper who now has Universe 2.0 Treadbolts gun, WFC Darkside Nemesis Prime has Ultimate Giftset combat hero Primes blade as an arm blade, and WFC Prime who has Classics Prime large gun as an arm shield/blaster.

    Their own guns, mainly. Only exception is the weapons that come with sets like the G3 trailer and Gear of War.
