    What purpose did they serve and why would he need them he has a giant chainsaw, and the two-pronged claw looking thing he had in Reign of Starscream? I mean, you have a chainsaw and a nasty looking claw, a six-barreled rocket launcher, a gatling gun, dangerous-looking spikes on your fingers, and you alt mode is considered to be the most advanced, and deadly fighter jet out there right now. Why would he need another set of blades on his rocket launcher, when he could just blow you to hell? Not trying to rant, I'm just a little confused.

    Probably a melee weapon he could use in TFTM. Before ROTF/DOTM, he didn't have the buzzsaw, after all.

    Yeah. They may have designed him so Starscream would have a missile blade on each side as a melee weapon. Then they came out with the oversized pizza cutter in the ROTF game. And they probably couldn't get rid of it.

    Bayonets?

    In continuity I bet he did but just didn't use it.
