    imdb.com says that Optimus uses a red sword to defeat Bonecrusher in the freeway battle. It says that this is a tribute to how he used an energon axe in the show. I couldn't see the sword did anyone else see it?

    Damn man, the blade is kinda hard to miss. Especially since it's what he shoves into Bonecrusher's head.

    It's only shown briefly, but you get a good look at it. Got a suitable "whoa" out of the audience at the Botcon screening.

    I'm not sure where I was but I don't remember it. It could be that I saw but I just forgot what it looked like. I have only seen the movie once so. Does anyone have a picture of that scene they can post?

    That is one of my fav moments, that thing is insane :) . I would say its a normal sword colour with a glowing kinda colour on the blade if i can remember correctly.

    It's a blade that slides out of his arm that glows red as if it's superheated. It's kind of hard to miss; he puts bonecrusher in a headlock and shoves it through his face. he even does a wolverine style "shhhnict" blade withdrawal as he drops bonecrusher's decapitated head onto the ground.

    Yea, I caught a glimse of it. But he just uses it to shive Bonecrusher, and I barely saw it.

    Apparent Alt. Grimlock's sword fits in a slot underneath Voyager Prime's forearm.

    the sword and megatrons mace are a homage to there energon weapons in G1 whats kinda funny is they are both only used once in the movie and are only in one episode of the show
