Looks like they're designed to connect to the inner wheelwell like the G3 Trailer shoulder cannon for Mirage. I was hoping for more varity. Pass.

Not bad, but it doesn't scream "must buy".

You're right, I mistook the weapons in the second picture to be different than the first pic. Now that I'm awake, I can see that they're just transformed.
I've fixed the story.

Not a must buy, so price will matter.
I'd love a nice set of decent scaled null rays for the seekers too.
I have some I've customed, but a set that looked like the MP seeker cannons but smaller would be awesome!

I'd buy them unpainted. It'd be nice to be able to customize them to whichever figure I want to use them with.

not trying to be a boring internet bastard or anything, i love the idea of custom accessories and universal ones even more so, but they really aren't looking very exciting.
however it has got me thinking about some of my tragically un-accessorised vintage TFs. is there a resource (other than fleabay, which is ripoffsville for any small items. £3 p&p? piss off! ) where i can buy fairly cheap action figure accessories to chop up? i had a look at the custom figures forum and couldn't seem much that didn't involve sculpting a whole new part from putty, or just re-painting a different toy's gun.

I'm stumped on the last one.

My classics trailer from BTS was a bust so maybe they can redeem theirselves with this set. The two blasters were my favorite part of my trailer set.

I like the gun/blade weapon that UC Ironhide/Ratchet have.
Hmm, this set is neat but the designs don't knock my socks off. But it's a good thing to have more variety in the options of accessories we can choose from.

essentially it'd boil down to interchangeable main body piece/s, handle, stock & barrel/s which you could reconfigure your weapons as and when you want, or for different toys. throw in a white-light LED unit and some different coloured light piping pieces and you'd have a must-have accessories set.
I'm going to have a bash at making myself one if i find the time, it can't be that difficult.

Why don't they make a trailer add on for Rodimus?? Finish him, and give him his convoy ya know... I've been thinking about making one myself but, to much life going on right now.
