Yeah sorry, never was in love with the mech-tech weapons. This holds no interest to me.

I'm starting to change my mind about Mechtech. Sure, the weapons are way too big for the toys, but they'e kinda cool. Hasbro needs to do cool promotions like Takara does.

I can't wait to see how much BBTS scalps these for! Con artists.

"Psyllium triple wreaking claw"? "diagonal tri Psyllium ray sword"? Psyllium? Are these weapons designed to fight against the evil forces of constipation and irregularity? I suppose next they'll produce the "Ex-Lax Battle Axe" or the "Senna Smooth Move Sword".

Behold the power of my MechTech "Colonic Enema Blaster"! Prepare for total irrigation!

Actually, it's Tripsyllium for all three, not just Psyllium which is a genus of plant. Not that it makes more or less sense. 8-}

Wasn't even paying attention, that's just what Google translate came up with. I just removed that part from their names, since it wasn't that important anyway.

Bumblebee's blaster looks much better in the darker colors.

Well, the first live action movie established that Transformers have the ability to eliminate bodily waste as per Bumblebee vs Agent Simmons. I suppose these fearsome weapons are suppose to cause enemies to soil themselves in terror?
