    Does it bother anyone else how inconsistent Prime's weapons are? First movie, arm mounted heat blade, same with second, then he carries his heat blade with a heated axe, then it's arm mounted head blade again with the knightsword, and now for some reason an unheated arm blade and the knightsword. Does this bother anyone else or am I crazy?

    No because Megs has also had a different Cannon/gun in every movie he's been in.

    No becuase other Autobots in the movies have had random weapons pop up before. Ratchets rocket launcher, Sideswipes back gun, Bee's shoulder cannons etc.

    I'd like him to have kept his gun from the first movie.

    It just kinda leaves me wondering how many blades can one arm have in it? His current body has at least 2 in each now. His arm is a damn swiss army knife lol.

    If I remember correctly, it was once stated that Transformers in the movies can just kinda create weapons because of how they're made. That's why Ratchet had that 'one and done' drill or Bumblebee had those Rocket launchers

    Oh damn I completely didn't remember that, that actually would make sense especially after seeing transformium's(ugh, why not Cybermatter or whatever it was in TFP) potential in AoE.

    Not really. He had the same energon blades until he found the sword in the Knight's Temenos. The hand-held blade from DOTM seemed to be his wrist-mounted one from the previous two films. When he's about to fight Sentinel in Chicago, it emerges from his wrist, and precedent for them being removable was set in ROTF, when he threw one at Grindor. Sure, he also had a bunch of extra weapons in DOTM, but it makes sense the 'Bots would've had more weapons made at that point. They had Que to make them. Heck, that's likely how he got his Hooks from ROTF, considering it's implied the ROTF and DOTM 'Bots arrived at the same time. It is weird that Oprimus now has an all metal wrist blade in this upcoming film, but considering we've gotten explanations for all his other weapons, I don't see why the same won't happen for this one. Or it might be something he gained when his body changed, while removing the sword. That seems to be how he got his rocket boots.

    Me too. I think I recall his DOTM gun getting tossed the first time he fought Lockdown in AOE. I wonder if anyone found it amongst those abandoned warehouses?

    edit: also one of his arm mounted blades got crushed by that grinder hole in Galvatron's chest.
