- Weapon: Double Barreled Multi-Purpose Launcher
Right. So while I puzzle the hand issue out and/or model new hands in lightwave and see about getting them built on shapeways, I've decided to convert the "axe" into a weapon mount and build a weapon for ratchet, which will also prooooooobably be able to attach under his front bumper if I can pull off a peg that can swivel up. (because there's a 5mm hole there where the claw/shield/roof rack can attach to his back in robot mode.) The weapon mount wont be able to hold anything particularly large like leader class ironhide's FWI upgrade swords because the axe joint won't support their weight, but things like swords and maces etc should slot fine. The gun is currently working name "Tezlacore"... because so far the plan has it mostly made of the lower torso of the Tezlacore figure from Wizkids' Mageknight and the arm barrel from a steam golem from same.
