"Transformers 4" is currently filming in downtown Detroit, and a new human sized melee weapon has been spotted on the set. Actor Mark Wahlberg can be seen carry a sword, which appears to be Cybertronian in nature based on it's design and markings. Will this new weapon play a key role in the story? Only time will tell.

My guess is, that it's not a sword at all, but it's more of a key. (cyber planet key?) something the size of a key to a transformer, would scale down to just about the size of a large sword in human scale. So yeah, you heard it here first, this is TOTALLY a cyber planet key....and it's going to cause some explosions and chasing, and inevitably someone will cry. (I hope I haven't spoiled the movie for anyone, ya know giving away the entire plot like that)

And this is exactly the kind of overreaction I predicted would happen. :roll:

It´s either a human size sword or a Transformer size key... a key to Vector Sigma, perhaps?

In response to sabrblade's reply to my comment. My statement is referring to the fact that they do these stories half ass. There is such great mythos, stories, etc in the source material than I've seen in any of the movies so far. Example, revenge of the fallen barely touched on the fallen. It could've been a much better movie if the source material was referenced more. Just saying. Star saber, omega lock key, whatever it may be, I hope they actually have a well put together story instead of putting an object from cybertronian history, down playing it, and Just putting explosions etc around it. Dig deep bay, there's better stories out there. Use them and make them better not lame

You're a forever optimist aren't you? haha.

I've wished that each and every movie would START getting better, and I've set myself up for disappointment each time...granted none of the movies outright "sucked", but yeah...they were very "lackluster" for lack of a better word.

Just seeing that sword gives me flash backs of Lord Megatron being snuk up on and slayed in tf prime. I want that sword to shot energy blast, that would be cool.

either the star saber can mass shift like the allspark or its a key. Or its megatrons toothpick

Well, I'll scoff at all the ideas thus far. Doesn't mean that one of them isn't actually correct, I'm just chaffing a bit at the idea of a human scale sword of Cybertronian origin. Granted, it is still a bad-ass looking sword. One idea that I suggested on Frenzy/Rumbles Facebook page when he posted this earlier is that it could be one of "Wheeljacks" (f*** Bay and his last minute name change to Que or whatever the hell it was) human sized weapons that he engineered for Sam and the NEST troops that had been recently rediscovered. That, to me, seems like a more plausible theory and one that doesn't just totally hose the whole continuity (such as it very loosely is) of the movies.

But sadly, this is the Movie-verse and there is going to be some horribly lame explanation of what this thing is.

I want a replica of it regardless of its back-story. That thing is wicked looking!

It reminds me of D'Argo's sword from Farscape.

Ah yes, just bland enough that the dozens of role-play toys of it won't be much of an eyesore as they continue to shelfwarm two years from now.
