Well I guess if you want to call that a gun, then its a gun. I can make a robot bananna fan mode out of astrotrain too. Ive learned my lesson with both stepper and artfire. Wait one year and they will be on sale half price. The combination of crackhead prices and obscure Japan only characters always leaves millions publishing figures clearance bound.

Sixshot will have to wait, but allow me to give you some trivia: his Brave series retool Shadowmaru from Brave Police J-Decker did not advertise the gun mode of the mold. However, the producers of the show did sneak it into a single episode:

That was an unexpected but cool thing to add into this to make it 'seem' like you are getting more than just a repaint.

Shadowmaru wasted a lot of energy there. Should have had more enemies lined up in his sights first!

Thanks for sharing!

I once read one of those alternate universe DC comics where this new generation of Superheroes appeared and were the only ones that could harm these alien creatures. Anyways one of their number had the ability to turn anything he was holding into a gun. I remember one scene where Superman was holding a bus, and this guy held it as a bazooka and shot a massive laserbeam.

This reminds me of that series.

I can't get Metroplex to hold Astrotrain like that. Popped off Metroplex's thumb when I got close to managing it.

Edit: Though my Cybertron Galvatron finally has a proper fusion cannon, now.

Suddenly, I really want that Astrotrain mold. Well, for another reason beyond "he's a space shuttle AND a train!"

Yeah, the legacy's not so great. About the best we've had is Bulkhead's recliner mode in Transformers: Animated. Beast Wars had some great 'made up' weapons, like Tarantulas' shoulder cannon batteries, but that's not really the same...

Of course, for the more recent comics, there's a fair bit of artists just designing their own Transformers (with some striving to make them actually functional, and accounting for alternate transformations), but then never seeing them make it to a toy shelf. e.g., Figueroa's interpretation of Thunderwing.

Well, I couldn't help it, I went searching for my Astro train! He was a bit fiddly to get into Metroplex's hand, but I think you have to take advantage of the recess on the inside of the hand opposite the thumb. Anyways, my Armada Overload was out (They are all in storage due to renovations, however this allowed me to pull out a few old favourites I haven't fiddled with in ages.) Overload's trailer is actually loads of fun for alternate modes, usually bases of some sort, however;

(please excuse the pic quality and the state of the room. Like I say, renovations. My entire house looks like this right now :BOOM: Overload is also missing a piece, it's in another box somewhere :oops: )

Image

The balance with Overload is non existent, only this pose is possible and he doesn't fix properly to the hand, he's just resting there, but it was still a fun experiment.

also;

Shoulder cannon :D
Speaking of Overload's trailer having multiple base possibilities, did one Dreamwave pack in comic show something like that? Or was I imagining stuff?
