Strangely, it reminds me of the snake dagger that was used in the 1982 Conan movie:



Ranged weapon function and intricate markings?

I suspect this sword might be a link to some ancient alien conspiracy thing, like a Chinese equivalent of Excalibur. There's this old Chinese legend regarding a so-called Sword of Kings. There's a chance the AOE story might allude to it.

I mean, they hid a sun harvester in a pyramid, and stored space bridge pillars on the moon. These Cybertronians treat our planet like some storage unit, except they don't pay any rental fees.

It reminds me more of Frostmourne. I suppose the question we should ask here is "does it hunger for Sparks?".

Second question we should ask is "Will it fall prey to the mass shifting effect that Bay swore up and down wouldn't be in the movies and yet pulled that trick with the Allspark?
Are we going to see this thing go all 'Super-sized' in some spectacular flash of light when it's dropped into Primes hands?

It reminds me of Ka D'Argo's gunblade from Farscape.

I thought of this when I saw it, merely for the split in the blade.

Not that it doesn't look cool but I'm so sick of swords, axes, shields, spears, etc. Bring back the guns Michael, I beg you ! :michaelbay:

All these damn sword fights in Transformers is kind of like having gunfights in The Hobbit. :HEADHURTS:

Dude, the guns were their main weapons in ALL 3 movies. They used melee weapons sparingly.
What are you going on about?

looks cool and all but im sick of artifacts, first it was the allspark then it was the matrix and harvester then the space bridge. This isnt including all the other TF continuities out there. All i want is autobots fighting decepticons in a war setting with a good plot line thats it. I want a war movie but with giant fucking robots instead of human soldiers.

Transformers have been carrying around guns for years. It grows tiresome. Swords are much more badass than guns, anyway. What, you want a whole movie with Autobots and Decepticons standing miles away shooting at each other? That would be boring as hell.

That's why I'm glad Animated did away with most of the guns. I'm hoping the movies will start doing that, too. I want up close and personal fights like the forest battle in ROTF or Optimus vs Sentinel in DOTM (short as it was). There's no impact to a fight that happens at a distance; no connection. It feels cheap.

A whole movie of swordfights...meh. Watch Conan. Don't you see the anti-gun lobby and parents influence here ? If some nutcase runs up in a school with a machete and starts slashing everyone, there wont be anymore sword fights in transformers movies/cartoons. They'll be fighting like Pokémon.

Alright, no weapons at all! Solid hand-to-hand close quarters combat all around! 8-}
