    Why dosnt he have a sword like in the Movie. The Sword he used was great and would look awesome on the Prime Figure.

    hasbro didnt know about it until after the figure was made.

    leader prime has lots of "problems" though, the sword not even being a major one. like aside from the windshield, he doesnt transform anything like the actual movie prime.

    Most if not all movie toys don't transform like their movie counterpart. Can't care less, as long as the figures are recognizable.

    You know, there's more than enough room in the other arm to put a flip-out sword-axe. I might have to do that.

    I'm using a lego "cap" to attach to the tip of the barrel, and the cap is glued onto a plastic "sword"

    Meh, he used it once in the movie. I couldn't really care less about the sword.

    I made my own.

    Besides, he may not TF like in the movie, but everything ends-up where i should, and is very convincing and is accurate.

    He doesn't really use many weapons, I think. He relied on his melee attacks

    Actually, from what I've seen, most of the toys *do* share a similar transformation scheme with their movie counterparts. Primes is *far* more inaccurate then any other figure from what I've seen.

    But having said that, he's still an awesome toy.

    The sword would be very cool. I'd like it better than the gun, actually. But no matter, Leader Prime is one of the best TFs ever made.
