    It's a macguffin. I like them. They up the ante all the time, especially if they reappear often (phase shifter, cortical psychic patch, dark energon, apex amour)

    Don't really care. Just a name drop because they both happen to be swords. Big whoop.

    It could have really been any sword, so doesn't matter in the long run. I'm more of a fan that 2 relics so far have brought Solus Prime's name into the show, so she might play a part in a backstory/explanation/all knowing voice from above, or perhaps more.

    I think It's a good idea if they use it the right way

    I'm disappointed they trademarked Star Saber to make it a MacGuffin.

    Looks like the Dr. Wu Prime Sword (aka the Star Saber) just went up in value

    Couldn't agree more. I wish they would talk more about the Original 13.

    YEAH!!! I'm getting front row seats for this!

    I just hope they elaborate on its connection to Nexus Prime, and maybe we can finally HEAR Prima's name spoken in-canon.

    By the power of Graysk... wait, wrong show.

    It's perhaps one Iacon relic too many for the Autobots. I mean what are they going to do with all of them, form an untra-powerful gestalt?

    To be honest, I'm hardly surprised it turned up. In fact my criticism is it ended up on Earth rather than somewhere awesome like on a meteorite in the orbit of Mercury or something. I just hope this one is an actual game changer and not just the item of the week.

    Macguffins are fine, when they are treated as true gamechangers and not just this week's plot device, IMO.

    I'm already sad because it doesn't seem to look like the AMAZING sword that Prima had in that One Shall Rise flashback.

    Hopefully the blade's shape is still that badass one.

    They did say that it can wield the power of the Matrix, so maybe it transformes when Optimus uses it.
