    OK... I'm pretty sure almost everyone who's seen the movie knows what it looks like

    What do you mean "transformed"? You mean all the way out?

    seems a lot of people want this baby

    i actually spent a little bit yesterday designing/drawing what i would like my friend to make for my Leader class Prime :D 

    This first pic is more to get an idea of what the blade itself looks like. i used a screen shot [not too dissimilar to the one posted here] and drew the blade. i originally thought itd be cool to just have the blade itself. have a notch in it like Primes gun and have it swing around on the same mechanism, but i went for aesthetic over functionality and made a "case" for the blade to come out of

    [​IMG]


    thus the next pic shows a render of the movie model Optimus and where the blade pops out of on its arm [outlined in green]

    [​IMG]

    And this is the final idea i have. Basically i designed the "case" part to look like the outer arm panel on Movie Prime. You would have the notch on the bottom of it which is where it would attatch to the arm. this would negate the mechanism while attatched but personally i never use it anyway so it doesnt matter to me :p 

    I also placed a ruler up to my Primes arm and kinda decided a 5 inch blade would be most appropriate [for me anyway. i like long blades :p ]

    so yeah. hopefully my friend can get to it. he said he was gonna but still :p 
    i mean. if anybody wants to use the design i say go for it. just as long as you build me one too xD

    That's amazing, but how's a five inch blade going to hide away in that?

    yeah i didnt design it to retract. the case would then need to be 5 inches long and that would stick way too far out to look good. so its stationary

    maybe have the sword collapse into itself... sure, the base would be a bit thick, but, it might be a viable solution.

    true

    which could be something someone could do, but in the end i'm fine with me having just a stationary, attatchable sword for my Leader Prime :D

    Geez, I'm not giving anyone shit, just thought I would inform people that is not the picture where the sword is fully formed, what you are doing however, is.

    Anyway, that's an awesome drawing Josh!
