    I think hes always been able to do that with his swords. You can see the handle when grindor pulls the sword out of his leg that optimus threw in there. It also has a handle.

    Yeah, he seems to be able to operate it in various ways - handheld, arm retracted, or arm underneath the blade.

    I think the transformation sort of works by letting the blade parts move through his hand, then have the hand grab on to the little handle on the inside. So I think Optimus himself can decide just how far he will transform it in order to be able to wield it, throw it, or have his hand free for something else...

    Yeah, it's cool. It's sort of like multiple uses.

    I think weapons in the movie verse can be detached, but when a TF chooses a weapon it is integrated into their body. So basically, they are hand held weapons they can retract into their body.

    Shockwave might have altered himself to better accommodate his love of killing.

    Haha. I guess they can choose to keep it deployed if they want. Basically, the movieverse TFs can do whatever the hell they want.

    The top edge of his shield looks very strange to me.

    Movie Optimus does not love killing. He simply does not temper his rightful indignant disgust for the Decepticons. If he loved killing, he would do so indiscriminantly.

    Let's not argue, Genevieve.
