    Q1.

    I saw the DOTM once more, and during the final battle between Optimus & Sentinel, OPtimus uses both his sword and a neat looking axe.

    Sentinel uses is sword/shield.

    I wonder if Optimus would've used his shield, he probably could have taken the same amount of hits, but without any damage.
    Another theory is that Sentinel is a wiser robot than Optimus, so maybe next time Optimus will know to use one.

    Q2.

    OPtimus told Sentinel that joining forces with the Decepticons isn't the only way to save Cybertron, so what other way could there be?

    I don't think it would have made much of a difference. Sentinel was clearly more skilled than Optimus at hand to hand combat, regardless of weapons.

    Not sure how much of a difference it would have made but Prime with a shield and using like the Spartans in a film like 300 would be pretty darn cool.

    Sentinel would probably just knock the shield out of his hand and cut his arm off. So, no.

    Sentinel pulled the axe out of optimus' hand and stepped on op's sword before cutting the arm.

    doesnt matter. Optimus obviously can be armed and dangerous and one armed and dangerous as well.

    No, because they wrote it that way. But litteraly I think his axe combined with a shield would be way more effective then two blades. Axes are awesome, they do more damage then swords and can be used to parry unlike a spear.




    That wouldnt work, the Spartans survived as long as they did did because they fought in a phalanx, an unbreakable wall. Even in the film they died pretty easy when on their own.

    best response ever!!!!!

    Sentinel is a wiser Prime. Optimus also needs to learn how to control his anger.

    Didn't optimus say "that earth is there home they must protect the humans" so that basically says that there is another way to save cybertron or there is no other way at all?
