    Who has them, who likes them, and which are the best ones to get?
    I'm very, very, very tempted to get the 6-pack light-up ones.
    But how long do they last? If you turn them on, how long do they stay lit?

    Can you guy's post some pictures of your energon cubes please?

    Yea, I know I could probably make a 2 cent pink-paper energon cube, but frankly that look's cheesy. :) 

    Want something worthy of my collection.

    Thank you Foster, which size are those? I noticed on their web site they have multiple sizes to choose from.
    Big, I saw those on ebay for like 12 bucks each 12-pack. Tempting to get two packs for the price of one 6 pack of the lited ones!
    That's 24 cubes for the price of 6! LOL!

    I went with the smallest size available.

    Thanks Foster, I think I'll order those as well. I can get 100 of them for the price of two 12-packs.
    Now I can feed my entire collection.

    I have a bunch of those Container Store boxes. But clear ones instead of colored. I've been planning on filling them myself.

    I don't remember who discovered those cubes but it sure was a great find! However... what are they used for? (no, not feeding robots:lol )

    You could also use MS Paint to make small purple boxes and fold them up into cubes yourself. If I were to get energon cubes that's what I'd do (and I have been tempted). It's basically free and you get as many as you want.

    How can people who live in Europe order this? Is this store for USA only, or do they ship internationaly?

    I just visited their site and it looks to be US and Canada only.

    Other than Transformers consumption, what the hell are these tiny little cubes for? What on Earth could you put in them?

    You could store jewelry, I suppose. Craft materials like beads as well.

    Well, I wouldn't. But just wondering what they were for.
    I suppose one could use them to store tiny RC screws.

    Foster I could kiss you! I've been trying to remember where the hell to get those from for months now. :D 

    I remembered there being a tread about them quite a while back but couldn't figure out what search terms to use to pull it up. ORDERED!

    EDIT: with the abundance of xmas lights out right now, has anyone attempted to light these up? I remember someone talking about it in the original thread I read about them but lost track of it a long time ago.

    I was thinking of staking a bunch of them up like Foster did but making the stack kinda hollow and putting a white LED Xmas light in the center to make them glow.

    I've got the same ones BigPhill has, got them from Digital Toys about four or five years ago. The guy that made them's a member here, he was selling more this year on the board, can't remember his name though.

    I really like those tiny plastic boxes. I was talking to Thorazine on Twitter about this and wondering how well they react under a blacklight for glowing purposes?

    Good question! I don't have a black light though. College was ten years ago. :lol
