I haven't kept up or anything obviously, but I was flipping through here, and there was a episode of Transformers, so I stopped to watch, and one of them had something that looked like a blue lightsaber. ?????

Since The Transformers: The Movie, where Hot Rod trains on the starship in a blatant ripoff of the scene with Luke training on the Falcon in ANH. :D

Boy, that was a while ago, how'd that one slip by me?

It's not a lightsaber, it's just artistic license. You see, there is a team of minicon jets (mini-transformers who aren't faction-oriented) that merge to form the Star Saber. The toy is just 3 jets, the bottom being a handle and the other 2 forming the blade, but the show animators put a huge energy beam around the blade jets and then reshaped it to make it more interesting I guess.

Since they decided to make the Transformers really wimpy.:frus:

"Oh we don't want anything to happen to you kids............"
But letting the Decepticons gain more power so they might eventually wipe out the entire population of the earth doesn't take priority. I wish someone would kill them kids so the Autobots could kick some major metal hitch.

And what's with that transporter?????:sur: :frus:
