    This from a poster over at Seibertron's board after Ryan put up a link to the leaked script:

    This is news to me. I personally didn't care for Energon Cube, but I won't care if the name does stick. From the description of the object I've heard, it sounds like Allspark would be more fitting. Anyone else hear about this possibility?

    Well, I haven't read that leaked (and probably out-dated) script, but if that thingy you mention is related to Transformer's essence/life/whatever, I'd prefer it to be called Allspark rather that Energon Cube.

    If so this puts this people in another contradiccion. When many early leaks came out around february and march I believe ,this proposal was presume in the first drafts of the script that were readen by some sources who had mixed opinions ( if not some negative opinions about it). Later they (can't remember it if was Bay ,Murphy or Orci ) came out and said " the energon-cube WASN"T going to be called Allspark ". It's just like the flame-painted Prime , they first denied it ,now it's true. It's one contradiccion after another by part of this guys. We'll have to wait and see if this is true or not. I HOPE THEY DON'T DARE TO CALL THE ENERGON-CUBE "ALLSPARK" !!! That alone will be a crime !!.

    You know... Bay, Murphy and the writers can't catch a break from fanboys.

    They want to keep as much of this information secret as possible. Why? If you're working on something like this, you don't want EVERYONE to know EVERYTHING about it BEFORE it's even done. Where is the surprise in that?

    If they do respond to rumors and say: it's true - fans complain about that
    If they do respond to rumors and say it's not true - fans complain about that
    If they do not respond to rumors at all - fans complain about that

    ..... I do hope there's a scene of Megatron stomping on a "robot toyline celebration" convention in the movie. I'd pay JUST to see that.

    At one point I thought they changed it from "energon cube" to "matrix", which makes far more sense than anything else if it's just going to be the MacGuffin.

    Energon Cube is terrible, Matrix is ideal, and Allspark is all right because it is what the Matrix is a link to, presumably.

    I Like "Allspark" better than "Energon Cube"

    If the next rumor calls it the "TFW2005", i'd be a little more suspicious though. :)

    Too true my friend, too true.


    Look at from the moviemakers' perspective; if a rumor comes out that just happens to be true, they can either say it's true a lose the surprise factor, say it's false and deal with fan backlash later on, or don't say anything and just let the rumor spread unchecked.

    All in all the best option there seems to by denying the rumor now and deal with the backlash later when people have at least a chance to see it in the context you wanted.

    Calling it The Matrix is just plain asking for trouble.

    Even if they call it The CREATION Matrix, those who don't know any better will be pointing fingers.

    I thought allspark was the soul of a transformer?

    And so, "The Artifact, a decepticon refers to in the photoaccess preview of a set scene with shia and him being impailed beween a car and a TF's hand. So yeah the matrix sounds pretty possible.

    So does that mean that this somewhat a G1 variation? I mean different story but same asspect right?

    if they can not call it " the matrix" then allspark is ideal, that is what is its and was called more often in Beast Machines...for the transformers themselves, its just their "spark"

    and if people are not given a voice or an idea of how the movie will turn out & go see a terrible movie, they complain.

    so why not head that off & listen to some folks? it cant hurt that much

    They could call it the matrix if they wanted too, but because of the matrix movies they'll probably stear away from the name, stupid I say. Allspark isn an acceptable name but not energon cube. Underbase, or even vector sigma would be acceptqble too.

    Allspark would be ... kinda funny, as it's essentially the source of all TF life and what dead TF's return to in the BW/BM universe.

    So basically, you'd have a human hauling around the equivalent of TF heaven.

    It'd be even funnier if it got destroyed.

    "Dude, there's no Allspark. NOW where do we go when we die?"
    "Um ... Keira Knightley's panties?"
