    So I picked up Drift yesterday (hooray! Target) and really love his swords and the way they incorporated his knives/short swords into the toy.

    I actually am starting to really get into bots with swords. I have four now on my desk at work. I have ROTF Bludgeon, Vector Prime (Universe version because silver sword is the best), Animated Arcee and now Drift.

    Which brings me to my question, is there a list anywhere of bots that wield swords?

    If not can you guys name some others as I think I found a new sub-collection I am going to start :) 

    thanks!

    Definitely the two ROTF Bludgeon figures. 2007 movie wreckage,

    the upcoming Hunt for the decepticons: Banzai Tron.

    Animated Voyager Grimlock. Animated Deluxe Arcee. Cybertron/Universe Vector Prime. Cybertron Wing Saber/ Movie Wing Blade.

    Masterpiece Grimlock. ROTF leader Optimus Prime. Animated Leader Megatron,

    and Revenge of the Fallen Mindwipe would be my highest recommendation for drifts opponent. That toy just says "Ninja" to me. And I like the way the joints aren't ball sockets.

    Sword - Transformers Wiki

    Here is the TFWiki entry on swords.

    I have a few TF's with swords. Energon Starscream, RiD Megatron, Animated Leader Megatron and ROTF Leader Optimus are the ones I have that you don't have. I'm still trying to find Drift! XD

    ROTF Voyager Class Bludgeon is a must. There is also the Bonzaitron repaint.

    I always keep a few tiny swords (I like to pick them up at garage sales and such) to give to Transformers as I see fit. They can certainly look good with the right figures. A ridiculous amount of TFs with animal alt modes tend to have swords.

    Lol, that might be pushing it although Ultimate Bee used to be on it.

    YIKES!!! I don't think I can commit to 400 new TF's

    Thanks for the tip, I'll have to start doing that.

    Thanks for the list guys there are some that I totally forgot about.

    I am a sucker for bots with swords too, especially when they also have a samurai motif.

    I can't believe that nobody mentioned Samurai Prowl...but anyway, I'm more interested in Transformers martial arts battles. Grimlock may have a sword, but he's no swordsman, y'know? So I picked up Drift today to go along with RotF Bludgeon, Samurai Prowl, Animated Jazz, and Animated & RotF Lockdown. They're going to be Circuit Su fighting on my coffee table tonight. I can't think of any other TF martial arts masters....

    BW Magnaboss has a sword. And both BW Silverbolts have two swords. Although, Fuzor Silverbolt's "swords" are his missiles and aren't very convincing.

    Grimlock is most certainly a swordsman, he just uses a more european/viking-esque style of swordsmanship. More power and aggression behind his blows as opposed to special techniques and combat styles.

    List wise, the Wiki and Shmax search should more or less cover the question over who has a sword or not.
