So I got Bazooka the other night. Really wasn't going to, but he was at Target and he's worth the 5 bucks.
The drawback is the poor guy only has 4 rockets and then what does he do? Twiddle his thumb and let the rest of the crew do the rest of the work?
So I had to put an order in at Maruader's for some other stuff, so I'm going to grab him an assault rifle of some kind.
But then I got thinking about some of the others and their lack of proper weaponry.
What's Tripwire going to do? Hang back and let others do the fighting?
Scarlett needs some kind of assault rifle.
Gung-ho needs something too.
These guys are frontline troopers, they all need some kind of assault rifle to go along with the grenade/rocket launchers, mine detectors, etc..
So my Marauder's order got bigger.
Anyone else do this?

For the most part i don't like the weapons that they come with. Once i figure out what everone needs, i'll be making an order with Maurader.
I figure a regular ak47 for the blue troopers would be a start.

yeah, a good chunk of my joes are rockin' marauders weapons, largely the Modular M-14 customized for each member (Torpedo's with the front laser grip and double drum ammo clip is my favorite, but stalkers night site + suppressor rocks too.)
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

Yeah, I have mostly replaced my Joe and Cobra weapons. My vipers carry the new modular NVR, my Joes tend to carry modular M4s, SCARs or M-14s, my regular Cobra troops have Ak-47s w/bayonet. I've replaced the vast majority of Joe sidearms as well.

I've always thought if a Joe comes with a specialty weapon like a bazooka, mortar, crossbow, grenade launcher, shotgun, etc. needs a standard assault rifle.
For the Original 13 I'd get M-16's, but for the rest I'd get M-4's, and of course, AK-47's all around for Cobras.
Most of the Original 13 need standard weapons or replacements.
Looking for at reasonable prices:

I do this too, as you said, poor Bazooka only has 4 rockets. So I gave him an M4 that I had, Im not sure where it came from (its more then possible it came from my little cousin, as he can't have small parts on his joes).
Then I found Maurders stuff, and have been getting weapons from him. I've got a few M4s, and an XM8 from him as well as a grenade launcher and I just recently placed another order for some more M4s, an M60 (for rock n' roll), a few M16a2s, and another XM8 (which I think is my favorite).

Glad I'm not the only one that thinks frontline soldiers need frontline weaponry.
Just never made sense to me for Bazooka to have just a rocket launcher.
The shotgun-Joes (Flint, Falcon) will be getting weapons good for their specialties.

I thought everybody did this. I've used Mauraders, and I've also just gotten extra weapons on Ebay. A lot of the weapons that come with the joes are junk - weird weapons and terrible colors. So any Joe I take seriously, I replace the weapons.
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?
