Weapon: Gattling Gun
"Transformers 4" is currently filming in downtown Detroit, and a new human sized melee weapon has been spotted on the set. Actor Mark Wahlberg can be seen carry a sword, which appears to be Cybertronian in nature based on it's design and markings. Will this new weapon play a key role in the story? Only time will tell. Check out the images mirrored below courtesy of The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog and Just Jared.

My guess is, that it's not a sword at all, but it's more of a key. (cyber planet key?) something the size of a key to a transformer, would scale down to just about the size of a large sword in human scale. So yeah, you heard it here first, this is TOTALLY a cyber planet key....and it's going to cause some explosions and chasing, and inevitably someone will cry. (I hope I haven't spoiled the movie for anyone, ya know giving away the entire plot like that)

It´s either a human size sword or a Transformer size key... a key to Vector Sigma, perhaps?

In response to sabrblade's reply to my comment. My statement is referring to the fact that they do these stories half ass. There is such great mythos, stories, etc in the source material than I've seen in any of the movies so far. Example, revenge of the fallen barely touched on the fallen. It could've been a much better movie if the source material was referenced more. Just saying. Star saber, omega lock key, whatever it may be, I hope they actually have a well put together story instead of putting an object from cybertronian history, down playing it, and Just putting explosions etc around it. Dig deep bay, there's better stories out there. Use them and make them better not lame

You're a forever optimist aren't you? haha.

I've wished that each and every movie would START getting better, and I've set myself up for disappointment each time...granted none of the movies outright "sucked", but yeah...they were very "lackluster" for lack of a better word.

Well, I'll scoff at all the ideas thus far. Doesn't mean that one of them isn't actually correct, I'm just chaffing a bit at the idea of a human scale sword of Cybertronian origin. Granted, it is still a bad-ass looking sword. One idea that I suggested on Frenzy/Rumbles Facebook page when he posted this earlier is that it could be one of "Wheeljacks" (f*** Bay and his last minute name change to Que or whatever the hell it was) human sized weapons that he engineered for Sam and the NEST troops that had been recently rediscovered. That, to me, seems like a more plausible theory and one that doesn't just totally hose the whole continuity (such as it very loosely is) of the movies.

But sadly, this is the Movie-verse and there is going to be some horribly lame explanation of what this thing is.

I want a replica of it regardless of its back-story. That thing is wicked looking!

Motto: ""It's all part of the plan...more or less.""
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Ok...

Once again I feel compelled to throw my two cents in.

1) My vote is the Star Saber...I say that simply because it's so prevalent in MANY forms in the Transformers mythos. :grin:

2) Regarding human size... Come on people, did everyone forget the CAVERN-SIZED Allspark that became travel sized?? :HEADHURTS:

3) It looks badass regardless... In all honesty thought, even though it's small enough for a human to lug it around, it still seems kinda BIG overall.

Lastly, I want to say this... I KNOW Bay :michaelbay: has left a bad taste in MANY of the older fans mouths out there, but there are many film adaptations I've seen in my life that have ripped at my VERY SOUL at times... Masters of the Universe, GI Joe (not horrible but subpar), Superman 3 and 4, and anything Marvel that's not made by Marvel comes to mind... But I will be the first to say that thanks to Bay I've gotten some cool toys (funny the coolest movie figs are none movie characters :lol: ) and he has allowed a resurgence of out beloved bots... Sure they'd still be here, but I DOUBT their presence would be as strong... SOOOO I kinda love and hate Bay :michaelbay: at the same time. :grin:

To all my G1 bros and sis' out there I would say this...Can we PLEASE at least wait till the movie comes out to decide to rip it to pieces?? :BANG_HEAD: lol

It's got a sword grip, so I doubt it's the Key to Vector Sigma. The Star Saber is the logical guess.

Also, it probably mass shifts, why is this a foreign concept to TRANSFORMERS fans? :lol:
