    Before you call me crazy, some very odd things are happening to my MechTech wepons. The other day, Shockwave's MechTech's peg snapped, and I had to reglue it. Then just yesterday, I plugged Skyhammer's inti a port on Megatron's leg, and that snapped. So I don't have a wepon for Skyhammer, and can't transform Megatron.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    This is more of a QC issues, but my DOTM Skyhammer's weapon had the wrong sized spring. But problems like yours (the OP's) never.

    The diameters on those pegs and pegholes all differ a little bit appearantly.

    It's better to be cautious about trying to plug in different Mech Tech weapons into different figures.

    That Shockwave peg always seemed very hard to push in, on mine at least. Probably just a design issue.

    I took out Deluxe Walmart Prime's weapon spring to make him have the axe,but it's so floppy that it's only any good as a gun. Now he uses the Mudflap weapon,which is much tighter,but no breakage really.

    They do. I tried plugging Topspin's guns into Nitro BB, and they didn't fit too well.
