Spoiler: Question on Prime's Melee Weapons

Postby Bonecrusher27 » Wed Jun 29, 2011 7:01 am

I'm wondering if any of you guys know this, perhaps described better in the novel?

I notice that during the first fight, when his trailer transforms into his Battle station, he grabs sword and shield which are blazing orange. When he throws down his weapons, they seem to almost be ordinary pieces of metal. Same too with his battle axe towards the end. It's almost like he 'energizes' the weapons somehow, or perhaps it's a superheating effect blazing the metal orange. In any case when he has no use for them they somehow seem to just be normal metal weapons.

Weapon: Reciprocating Laser Cannon
They do seem like the Energo-weapons like the Dreamwave books described them, ordinary weapons when out of juice. His axe looks like an ordinary metal axe too, before it "powers up"

take a look at ROTF, during the forest fight, the blade gets energized when it comes out, goes from cold metal to brownish to orange....

So what I'm wondering is, is there anything inherently special about the material itself, or is it just any piece of iron that becomes special only when something is done to 'energize' it.
