    everywhere i read, why optimus could not cut himself out of those cables, but i hate to tell you...optimus doesn't carry his swords on his arms anymore. you can see in the 1st shockwave scene when his trailer transforms and he grabs a sword in one hand and a shield in the other, and at the end of the scene he throws the sword at the ground. how can you throw something that's in your body? thank you, tip your waiters, good night...

    Then why does an axe pop out of nowhere during the battle with Sentinel?

    Guess you didn't see him throw that sword at Grindor, did you?

    /Argument back on.

    Shockwave knocked him out with his Astromag Cannon, that's why he couldn't cut the wires.

    Except he DOES keep his swords in his arms (he pulls them out a few times without his jetpack, in fact the most notable situation is after he ditches his jetpack as he swoops in and kicks ass) AND an axe in his back. He got stuck in the wires 'cuz he was knocked the fuck out by Shockles until the Wreckers came to help.

    Prime still has his arm swords, just now, due to his new armory, he also has other handheld weaponry, like the sword and shield.

    The way I saw it the guns attached to his arms prevented him from using his swords and the wires kept him from detaching them. Then again, that's probably just me making excuses.

    I did find that scene amusing, though. There are always moments where a very serious character gets into silly situations.

    Uhm guys, i got that scene right when i saw it the first time. Even if he took out his swords, he could not have cut the wires, because they are out of his reach, seeing how the wires where hanging around his arms and so on, and seeing how the swords come out of his arm, its impossible to cut the wires.

    Only thing I got from that scene was prime can kill anything and come back to life but his kyripotnite is wires.

    Just imagine the whole time you were trying to kill Prime... All you ever needed was some bad traffic and cable wires

    I think they did that just to let the other Autobots have some screen time. What fun would it be if Optimus would kill everyone and the others just stood by and watched? He could have easily ripped the cables with his hands.

    Clearly the discussion isn't over if we're having this.

    And its not like Prime couldn't ditch items that were attached to him before (or have them removed). Remember his gun in the first movie?

    Hey guys how come he couldn't shoot his way out of those cables? Because we see bullets and missiles coming out of his guns how could he get rid of something that was in his guns amirite?

    Optimus was too entangled to be able to get loose. Also keep in mind hes made up of 10,000 parts. wires get entangled with things.

    Film TF's can generate weapons as they need them, e.g, Bumblebee's shoulder cannon, Starscream's sword, and finally, Prime's axe.

    But when Prime was in super awesome kick-ass trailer mode, his hands were covered by the bigass guns. Therefore, he couldn't cut himself free.

    Not only that, but latter on in the execution scene, you had to know that Optimus isn't going to fly in to save the day at some point.

    You know so it would seem more likely that Bumblebee will really get killed.

    It still kind of had that feeling that he was going to come save them just in time but then Wheelie and Brains also needed their heroic moment.
