    Back in season 1 when, Optimus and Megatron had their first brawl in "One shall rise Part 1" Or is "On Shall fall?"..Besides the point during the battle Megatron had broken one of Optimus prime sword in half. Through out the rest of season 1 and onto season 2, Prime had used the broken blade in some battles (Awesome detail, That he still had it and didn't magically get a new one). And it's still some what neat that he can use it in battle, but why hasn't he fixed it yet? I know Rachet is just a medic but he looks as if he can easily fix a problem like that.

    I've had just finished watching season 1, and just started to catch up on season 2 after Prime, and Wheeljack teamed up to save Bulkhead. So if there is any info that I'm missing on it be awesome if and of you guys could share.

    I rather wonder: how did Megatron get his helmet restored after O-Prime had hit it?
    Suggest, their additional detailes are biological, too. And O-Prime's sword must have healed itself.

    The reason Optimus never had it replaced was because he never had a chance due to the events going on. He did eventually get it fixed.

    That is so cheap.

    Seriously, he's gonna grow a new one?

    SPLIT LIP, and where does StarScream receive his missiles from?

    Not "grow", probably "cicatrization" or "reorganization" - you go with the full
    set.

    But I remember KnockOut's "do you know, how hard it is to replace", still, we do not know, that he ment.

    CR Chambers, seen in Beast Wars, do imply a level of self-repair.

    Though what irks me more is a lack of continuity on other details such as Starscream getting his missiles back between episodes and Airachnid regrowing her lost spider leg. I'd have liked to have seen continuity on Airachnid's damaged leg if nothing else - not like she had a way to get it fixed between her appearances from when it was damaged.

    His sword has since been shown, repaired and intact. The events from One Shall Fall to Orion Pax part 3 are all essentially taking place in real time, which is why the damage was present throughout.

    starscreams missles never bothered me that much. airachnid legs could have easily grown back and I could believe it. a sword growing back though? naww I think weapons aren't part of their biology it was adde l8rd as stated by orion pax he was suprised he had weapons. megatrons face got dented but that could have been easily fixed by knockout and breakdown.

    Stream forge. The red glowy parts are constantly blacksmithing his blade maybe?

    The movie style Prime those things always look warmed up, and he can bend them into hooks. But yeah, it's Bay so it probably does'nt count.

    How should I know? It's not my job to keep tabs of the fake science of this show.

    How he got one back in Crossfire, I have no idea. But after that I assume there were more missiles stored in the harbinger.

    Dreadwing can literally pull bombs out of nowhere, so I'd assume Screamer pulls a similar trick with missiles :lol

    Well, we know for a fact he has tons of those stored away. Just look at his little weapons table in Crossfire. Hell, dude has pistols and regular grenades too.

    I know, dude, but seriously, he pulls out quite a lot in Triangulation. He's gotta be putting them somewhere when he's on the field.

    They are sentient and run themselves.

    All that is gold does not glitter,
    Not all those who wander are lost;
    The old that is strong does not wither,
    Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
    From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
    A light from the shadows shall spring;
    Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
    The crownless again shall be king.

    JRR Tolkien


    I had to, sorry. XD

    If his bombs are sentient, then Dreadwing is essentially hoarding midget suicide-bombers.

    ....

    You know, that's actually quite horrifying.

    Then, why am I laughing that hard?

    They are sentient to run, but not sentient enough to understand, that they are supposed to be killed. That is what I have been going to answer since I had brought the first line.
