Cybertron Minicon Saber ?

Can anyone tell me the name of the Cybertron Saber here:
Image

I just ordered the Sunstorm 2-pack, with hopes to get the other two for the sword. I honestly didn't even know this thing existed
until I was looking for some harder to find minicons, thanks to Megadave's minicon advent calendar. Too bad he went MIA,
I was really getting into that.
Anyway, if anyone has some info on it I would much appreciate
it. Thanks!

I don't think it had a specific name per se. It's a version of the Energon Saber, but I don't think it was called that.

Those two packs are marginally difficult to come across. Not nearly impossible like the Wave 4 two-packs were, but still tough. Don't expect to pay straight retail for them.

Thanks. I don't remember seeing them in stores with the other two packs so I was surprised to find out about them while
researching for the 2 packs of the requiem blaster repaints.

BBTS wants like 17 dollars for the Sunstorm one and with shipping and taxes, I live in WI, it would cost a fortune, just for that alone.
I found one at actionhq.com for half the price, and even with
higher ship it still costs less.
Unfortunately I'll probably have to get the other 2 at BBTS since everywhere I look they are out except there. Unless anyone out there wants to get rid of them....?
Let's just say I'm not too beholden to my Walmart MP Starscream
Which may go to ebay to finance the other two sets.

That Particular Saber did not have a name AFAIK.
It is a Retool-Recolor of the Armada Air Defense/ Air Assault Teams

But it was never given a name in Cybertron, since they were packaged by themselves with another minicon from the Emergency Team. As far as I recall it was never mentioned they could combine anywhere on the packaging either.

Still I was lucky enough to find all 3 packages at the same time in Wal-mart when they were released. It is a cool looking weapon.

I call mine the 'Sun Saber' and I gave it to Cannonball.

I figure Sun Sabers are the kind of things Pirates would steal, given the opportunity.

True that it doesn't have an official name. But I think most fans call it the Seeker Saber, since it's made up of 3 "Seekers", Ramjet, Thrust, and Sunstorm.

I call mine the Aero_Sonic Sword. And usually give it to Cybertron Soundwave. Although R.I.D Prime has been known to hold it from time to time.

There's indeed no mention of the sword combination on the packaging. They do point it out in the instructions though.

Sorry if anybody already knows this and I'm stating the obvious,but the team as a whole is apparently called the Sky Terror Team...No idea what the sword mode's called though. The Sky Terror Saber? The Rebel Saber? (They are rebels against the Mini-Con council after all)...I actually just managed to win the old Armada Dark Saber team from Ebay, yahoo!

In mildly related news I got 20+ new minicons today.

Rare ones too.

Bug General for me! Horay!
