    Can't seem to be able to find many good pics of Energon Cubes, more specifically, how they appeared in G1.

    I'm modeling some(3DS Max, imported them into Vice City):

    Those are the variation that the unicron.us site sells. I want to make the more complex, brighter version with grid designs(from G1).

    So can someone get me some good pics? I've been searching, can't really find many at all.

    G1 energon cubes were just glowing pink squares, like what came with the insecticon reissues. I don't recall a "complex" version with "grid designs", unless you're talking about when they would press them down to be more compact.

    Man, I haven't watched a single episode of G1 in like three years, I'm so rusty.



    Can you tell me more about the different varations in G1? Maybe someone can also supply some images? That's like the only one I found when doing image searches, and searching normally gets you to stuff about the Allspark, or TF: Energon the show, or more Energon Cube accesories for sale, not really many pics from them in G1.

    Energon Cubes came in three versions in G1. There were clear "empties", a solid pink / purple "charged" one and then a stack of four condensed. The condensed ones splayed out at the edges, so they had more of wavy appearance to them. The colour also changed from solid purple to a shimmering rainbow of blues, purples, greens, yellows and white.

    Cool, thanks.

    I'm starting to remember now, but screens would still be a big help for reference.
