    ...but my clawed knuckles, they do not glow, why do they not glow?

    Okay enough of that, keeping with the theme that Optimus apparently is the only Cybertronian with energon melee weapons for some reason, anyone wanna guess why his knuckles don't glow unlike his other melee weapons?

    Also, being a Prime, anyone wonder why Sentinel's sword/scythe thing didn't glow too?

    Sentinel's sword isn't Energon, and I don't think Prime's knuckledusters are either.

    Because Sentinel is from an older and more noble time? And brass knuckles would look weird powered up.

    No, I'm pretty sure they were just really freaking hot from slicing Sideways like a pizza

    I think the "glowing" on Sideswipes swords is just them being heated up by cutting through stuff. IIRC, the only time they really glow is just after cleaving Sideways in two.

    Because glowing orange blades look awesome, while glowing orange brass knuckles don't? There's not much thought put into these sorts of things.

    Probably because his knuckles are not made of energon like his other melee weapons.

    Optimus' weapons are not energy weapons, rather metal that is heated internally so it appears to glow. This is supposedly to let them cut easier. In ROTF he actually throws one of his swords and it "cools down" returning to all grey, showing it is indeed solid and metal.

    His knuckles don't glow because they don't need to cut. They're meant to hurt people, as evidence by Optimus pulling them out only when he's REALLY pissed off.

    I think optimus weapons glows as a reference to G1 (you know, the orange axe and stuff...)

    because if they glowed there wouldve been a thread called "Glowing Brass Knuckles? Come on!"

    Glowing swords? Glowing hooks? No. They're burning. And Prime deals out justice with them. Burning JUSTICE. :cool:

    They do. The circular panels on the side seem to start lighting up before he mega punches Shockwave.
