    Does anyone else feel like the weaponizers are lacking.
    We only have 3 unique molds I was expecting more when the line was announced.
    Is earth rise going to add any.
    I’m not sure if iron works is actually a weaponizer.
    I have 2 each of cog,sixgun, and brunt.
    Just a little bummed out

    I'm a bit scared for Earthrise's Modulators because of this. I hope we get Greasepit, Hot House and Airwave from the line. =/

    Yeah, probably just ironworks plus two more unique modulator molds and 3 repaints at most then.

    I don’t collect any of the Micromasters at least currently mostly because there are to many of them.
    But I wasn’t aware that iron works had a different title then weaponizer.
    Kinda disappointing.
    Maybe they’ll double as weapons as well.

    I'm more disappointed with the fact that the 5mm ports have been so poor quality with all of the Siege figures, with so many loose both the male and female connectors that I had to Pledge the hell out of almost everything.

    The weaponizers being the worst ones as all of mine couldn't stay together well at all.

    And yup, agreed, I didn't like the recolours... they could have have done much better, at least some efforts for a few new parts with the "alternative" figures (the "powerdashers"). And that's why I didn't bother getting those.

    I really like the concept, but the execution has been a tad lacking.

    ive bought two different sets of cog and sixgun and my first pairs of those were pretty loose.
    I sold those and just recently bought new pairs and they seem a tad bit tighter.
    I luckily never had to pledge my figures.
    I primarily used the weaponizers though as weapons. I don’t leave my in their individual bot or vehicle modes.

    i agree I’m not sure why the decepticons got the shaft in that department. Maybe it’s because they got more figures in voyager and leader class.

    Yeah, but not surprising considering some things. But those weaponizers should have came with three additional sets of pre-molded heads instead of just one alternative head sculpt. Maybe some alternative legs, arms, torso and weapon pieces.

    Plus, Those first three molds from the siege line would have made excellent Decepticlones from the Armada Video Game.

    Shame we only mostly autobot weaponizers in Siege. I have all 3 Powerdashers and Brunt to complete Trpticon. Look forward to all the Earthrise modular fiqures .Think its a brilliant idea to make bases turn into bots. Hopefully they do a Quint modular as well as other cases

    You know, if they designed and released Weaponizers like they do Botbots (i.e. in packs with mostly unique molds), they might make a killing.

    The only one that looked truly good to me was Brunt/The Burt. He felt like a legit Transformer. Cog and Sixshot felt like knock off characters you'd find at Wal-Mart or in a mall's cheap toy shop.

    I'm grateful for what we got. I'd still buy repaints of Cog and Sixgun as Grand Max's Cog and Metroshot (Even though we sadly still don't have a Generations Metrotitan)

    Maybe. I still hope to see more one day though. Maybe Scorpulator?
    Same. I love the molds and they're tons of fun. I never had those problems with the ports though, so that might be another thing on my side.

    I do think that we needed more Decepticon Weaponizers. Brunt was all that we got, and he was a bit lacking, although I do like adding him to Trypticon.

    As for the Autobots, I think Cog is decent, but I love Sixgun. I think he's the best of the lot. IMHO, he looks great on T30 Metroplex.

    I have duplicates of all of the Weaponizers, but I didn't get any of the Powerdashers because I have no interest in them, and they're all Autobots, and we always need more Decepticons. That is why, in spite of Brunt being my least favorite of the Weaponizers, I'm still getting duplicates of him to use as rank-and-file Decepticon soldiers.

    Kinda looking forward to Earthrise and Ironworks, and to see what other base-bots we get in that line.

    Yeah, not gunna lie. Weaponizers would be pretty sweet if they were treated as a separate class or part of a sub-line. Heck, i would be interested if they make some original designs.

    I’ll get all of the modular figures.
    But I’m not sold on the main line figures.
    I still don’t like the fact that we’re going to earth so soon without getting cybertron modes for some key characters

    So far, personally speaking, Ironworks looks really cool as a weaponizer so I am pleased they are continuing this subgroup. There could have been more but from what we got I think we got some good stuff. Plus I am sure all the MM bases will get modulars so that's more weaponizers to look forward to.
