Were Op's sickles just beatdown swords or did he switch them out?

    When prime was fighting in the woods his swords seem to become sickles, was this because the swords got beat down into a sickle shape or did OP morph them purposely into their shape?

    Anyone with a screen shot of the sickles?

    I think they're just extra weapons. He used them when cutting off his parachute as well.

    Quite possible that the swords themselves can change shape into sickles.

    I took it that they were worn down in the Forest battle. Then he used them to cut his parachute because he wasn't fully repaired.

    The blades were attached to them. If you watch the forest scene, when he flips over Starscream's back he also tosses his one blade into Grindor's right leg. He then proceeds to stab and leave the blade in Megatron.

    That would work if he had cut his parachute after the woods, his first scene in the movie was the parachute drop.

    I thought he cut off his parachute after his "rebirth," but my mistake.

    I think he means at the very beginning in Shanghi. When Epps said "drop big Buddha" or something like that.

    Grindor does remove something from his right arm (not the leg) before Prime jumps on his back to rip his head apart...

    Seriously, Prime has more instruments in his arms then G1 Ratchet had in the comics - guns, sickles, swords... he's a walking SWiss Army Knife. (and realistically, where would all these things fit?)

    They were just another weapon in the mighty arsenal that Prime has at his disposal. No autobot leader is complete without face-ripping grappling hooks!

    Only if the Swiss Army releases their knives with one instrument at a time.

    Since we know he loves some 'taters, does he also have a potato peeler in there?

    idk, how could the remaining hooks be like identical and symmetrical if they were the remainders of his swords? I figure breaking a sword to look exactly like a sickle is complicated. I think he just had them hooks for extra face-ripping purposes, OP seems to love that.

    So wait; both of Optimus' swords were coincidentally "battle damaged into" two perfectly symmetrical metal sickles?

    Rrriiiiiiiiiiiiight.



    EDIT: Or see An-Tan's comment.

    It's his blades, it's not another weapon. IF you look closely, the 'orangey' parts of the blade are gone. What's left of the blade is the silver parts, which are bent and damaged. Then that reminds me.. I don't think his blades are heated up when they come out, I think they are powered by Energon.
