    Well Optimus's Energon Swords in DOTM and ROTF are the same one, that's for sure because in they were are Unsheathes by his hand and if u remember in ROTF when he throw it to Grindor's leg and for what i see that's Optimus can't hold it techincally he can but it would be very difficult for him to battle
    here's the pic of his blade in ROTF

    new weapons, or modification. Once he obtained his trailer he possibly modded them so that he could store them and and still hold them like a regular sword, it's not like he holds them two handed, they have short handles for one handed use

    I always thought the swords in ROTF came out of his wrists or forearms. I didn't know Optimus was actually holding the swords. But when he says "I'll take you all on!", you can see the swords kind of slip out of his arms, so how did he hold the swords? :confused:

    I never noticed that was Prime's sword stuck in Grindor! I thought that only happened in some previz footage shown on ROTF Disc 2, when Prime throws his sword into Grindor's leg.

    I think the hand slides back into the forearm and holds the sword....for hand protection?

    Well, in ROTF the swords get reduced to hooks (and then Prime gets killed) and are not used again in the movie.

    It makes sense that while the swords might have been recovered, it was easier to simply make them independent of Prime instead of trying to graft them back onto his body. None of the DOTM toys of Prime that are new molds have swords, not even the Supreme figure.

    It also makes for a perfect excuse for him to change things up in the final battle where instead of a sword he whips out his ENERGON AXE (stored in his backpack kibble) to fight it out with Megsy for the last time.

    They were not 'reduced' to hooks. The hooks are entirely different weapons

    There are little clips under his forearm panels that hold the handles of the swords.

    You see, they peg into his forearms and unfortunately the hole was a hair too big so the connection was loose enough for it to just fall out accidentally in the leg of Grindor

    Actually Optimus released the grip on that sword and threw it at Grindor. Hence him lifting his arm and throwing the sword at Grindor lol.
