    is when ultra magnus got scrapped by shockwave, that cliffjumper said "magnus hammer". i found it semi odd and semi story wise that sentinal and optimus and magnus all have melee weapons. op has his axe and sp has a sword/shield while magnus has the hammer. i was just wondering if they did that story wise signifying that they are the main characters or reading into this story too much think the three are related?

    All Autobots have powers that aren't guns. Those three aren't the only ones that carry 'loose' weapons, so I think you are reading too much into it.

    Jazz has his nunchucks don't forget and Bulkhead has his wrecking balls, Samurai Prowl has his sword as well. It's been established that most of the weapons for those few Autobots that have them are designed to be tools as well, to represent the more peaceful nature of the Autobots. The Magnus Hammer, while suitably large, is still a hammer at heart which is of course a tool. It's only SP, Jazz and Samurai Prowl that have very weapon-like weapons.

    Doesn't Magnus have all those guns like his toy?

    As others have already said, the other Autobots also have melee weapons. The reason, imo, that Cliffjumper said Magnus hammer, is because it's probably the object that gets passed down from leader to leader, sort of like the Matrix in G1.

    Nope, it's been confirmed that the additional weapons that UM's toy had were only there to add additional play value to the toy, and aren't things he actually has in the show.

    I doubt it. With those guns, I would have a hard time believing that Shockwave would be able to beat him so easily.

    When I saw his toys in stores I didn't notice the guns, I was too busy pushing his Elite Guard symbol and watching his mouth move down. He looked so terrified! It was adorable.

    Autobots can have weapons, but only Elite Guard Autobots get those blue energon weapons you didn't notice that?

    Why? Shockwave attacked Magnus before it was revealed that Longarm was a spy in all likelyhood Shockwave hit a totally unprepared Magnus from behind with his most powerful attack.....
