Just now noticed he ditched his Fusion Cannon for the miscolored arm.

Dibs on the idea he forged the "Vorpal Saber", as I'm calling it til we get confirmation on what it will be called (your move, Sabr), from his Fusion Cannon, and the result was the sword and its corruptive properties extended around his arm.

A counterargument would be that in the first promo, when Megatron is wielding Solus Prime's Forge, I think his Fusion Cannon was on his arm. :-?

Probably not this episode, but he does get captured by the 'cons in a future episode. Remember?

She doesn't have bad luck with all Autobot partners. Just ones that were once minibots.

Quite frankly, all the minibots have been having bad luck lately.

Which makes me wonder about someone. :-?

Nah. They won't do that because of the kids. The kids.....the kids. :cry: :cry:

My guess; probably not, as he's still early. Then again, they did kill Cliffjumper in the first episode...

Be interesting to see which Prime's arm Megatron has welded to his shoulder.

Reminds me of G1 Megatron's purple lightsaber.

Looks like the whole "arm-from-a-tomb" idea is correct, and isn't Prime's arm or some other things. So the arm alone allows the things to be used? That's a dumb premise, it should be something like having park of your spark in the Matrix, or something more "magical".
Nevertheless, looking forward to it.

Who said that? Megatron and Dreadwing are obviously flying off-world to get an arm, and nobody else (or elses arm) can hold these Prime-forged devices but a Prime. So, where is your source of information?

The size of Star Saber just makes you realize how big the original 13 were.

Another thing, this whole Sword thing makes me think of Soul Calibur. Anyone agrees?

That's what he was asking about. He was wondering where you heard the idea of it being Optimus's arm.

I was looking at the second picture and realised something: the detailing on the star saber exactly matches the little sword that came with rid voyager prime
Time to break out the sharpies methinks...

Reminds me of the Super Link intro near the end where we see Grand Convoy and Galvatron lock swords just like Prime and Megs are doing here.

I want to see more Unicron Trilogy homages. As long as they don't contradict the continuity. Damn Omega Lock. :-x

Freakin' amazing episode. The story behind Megatron's mismatched arm and ending was especially shocking. Can't say I'm thrilled for the next episode, but I'll bite and watch it anyway.

The Star Saber breaking was a crazy shock (Optimus only had it for 3/4 of an episode, collectively :sad: ), but I think most of us saw Megatron's arm coming. And I mean it being that of a Prime. That was too obvious for anything else to be the outcome.

I must have been the exception.

I'm a Unicron Trilogy kind of fan. Prime's freakin' awesome, but it doesn't give me the kick that the Transformers I grew up with did.

....Nostalgia is kicking in, it seems. -sigh-

Probably. It was kind of obvious, considering these weapons could only be wielded by a prime.

I grew up as a toddler watching Beast Wars, but didn't join the fandom until around Energon and Cybertron (pretty much in between, as I watched both shows before the others, minus Beast Wars), so you're not alone. Although I find this Optimus Prime to be the wisest. Boring or not, his head is right in this game.

I'm gonna go out on a whim and say that wasn't the real Star Saber. If it is though, well then, that's gonna suck for the 'bots.
