io9.com has posted an exclusive preview clip from this week's all new episode of Transformers Prime "Legacy". Click here to view the clip, and be sure to tune into the Hub this Friday at 7:00 PM ET.

When the Autobots and Decepticons encounter a super-powerful sword that needs to be pulled out of a stone, who's going to claim its awesome power? Megatron? Smokescreen? Now, at last, we get to see what it would be like if the legend of King Arthur was restaged with giant transforming robots and pew-pew lasers.

Just saw the link to the promo. Thanks to the video we saw earlier though, we all know optimus gets it, and swings it around in circles...

Hey, when are they going to start saying "Hey, I know we hid shit on other planets, but what the hell?"

I was really, REALLY hoping it wasn't gonna be the Star Saber, as the novels felt like they already had some BIG plans for that sword, and with this show being the one to go into it, that means that Optimus just GIVES UP looking for the sword only for it to turn up on the planet he happens to be on millions and millions of years later by pure coincidence! :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

What's the moral of the story, kids? Looking hard for something with persistence is no way to find what you're seek. But if you just give up and take a more passive attitude to things, what you're looking for is bound to just "pop up" in your own backyard in a few million years. >:oP

And wasn't the sword broken up?

I jest.

Though, 'tis not a Minicon-based sword this time, but a Matrix-based sword. Twas forged by Solus Prime from the heart of a star, according to myth. Another myth tells of it being created from three bots to forge it, but this would likely be irreversible given the final product's design (unless all three of them were very thin blade-like bots). ;)

Given that the freakin' badass Arms Micron sword Is made of three pretty thin blade-like Minicons, you never know.

The Arms Micron Star Saber is formed by one of Optimus' arm guns, one of Bumblebee's twin arm blasters, and one of Ratchet's arm blades, all combined Power Rangers weapon style. I'm pretty sure that this is a different Star Saber than the one formed by their weaponized body parts.

The Star Saber I showed a pic of is the one that this one's meant to be.

You can't go wrong with a "Sword in the Stone" and Transformers! Looks like it will be a good episode.

Sorry, that title's already gonna be taken by Hot Shot.

Hasbro already made an Aligned Rodimus, but they named him "Hot Shot" so they could show how he becomes Rodimus.

At best, Smokescreen is the "Cheetor" of the group. ;)

Anyone else notice how when Megatron commands the Vehicons (next to the driller) they barely reach meg's crotch? It was almost like they used the Cyberverse to Voyager scale. :lol:

But then the vehicons are the same height as Smokescreen in the next scene, and the Smokescreen-to-Megs size ratio is about a Deluxe to Voyager... as seen with other cons... The 1st signs of scale issues...

Miners may be smaller. Though scale in Transformers, like everything else in sci-fi, is subject to variances depending on circumstances. ;)

Sorry it took me so long to get back to this, I didn't get the notification until recently for some reason.

I agree that Smokescreen needs to be shown the ropes, I was just upset that Jack is all of a sudden switched to SS as a new partner, and RC get left human-less (though she might not mind that much). I'm too used to seeing those two together, so it'll be a little while before I like the new pairing, especially since I thought the Jack/RC combo worked really well.

Also, am I the only one hoping that CyLAS (Cybernetic Life form Augmented by Symbiosis. I think.) makes a return? It's almost like the Daniel/Arcee fusion from The Rebirth eps of the old series (shame that they only made those three eps for Season 4, I wanted to see more of Fort Max), but evil.

I must admit, I didn't start out thinking I would like this series, but it's definitely grown on me.

I don't see it being a permanent switcheroo. Once Smokescreen's got himself into the perfect position rather than "rookie," Jack will most likely go back to Arcee (that is, if he wants to).

And again, not every 'bot needs a partner. Optimus & Ratchet are doing fine without ones.

I'm not. I hope they use Cylas' remains to rebuild Breakdown into a new body. I've been aiming at a camo-green bulldozer with the name "Landmine." :lol:

True, but they didn't have partners in the first place. This thing with Jack and Smoke Screen is most likely going to last for a while, after which I sincerely hope he goes back with Arcee. Hell, I hope he still goes on missions with her, though I doubt they'll have that in the series.

~laughs~ I wouldn't mind seeing that as a toy, myself, but I don't think they'll do that. ;) Breakdown's spark is extinguished, remember? With CyLAS there, it's more like a "Same house, new tenant" scenario.

We're just a few minutes away from tonight's all new episode of Transformes Prime "Legacy", and we have a couple of last minute promo images courtesy of Comics Online.

While Jack pairs off with a new Autobot partner, Megatron tries to keep Optimus from discovering the existence of a legendary weapon of the Primes, which could turn the tide of the war.

After this episode, that's doubtful. Especially once Arcee get through "talking" about the situation with Jack - and, perhaps, telling his mother what happened.

No one's been resurrected in this show. Terrorcons, while being "walking dead", are still dead. And Megatron was just comatose since he wasn't dead to begin with.

That sword's the Dark Matter Calibur.

Dr. Wu has made a Star Saber based off the Prima design, which this sword was based off of.

There's Dr. Wu's Prime sword as Sabrblade said, but I suggest waiting for Mastermind Creations to release their Prominion/Prima/Nova Prime figure if you want a Star Saber that fits a voyager. Dr Wu's version is good, but it goes better with deluxe figures.
