    I didn't want to cut up my instruction booklet, so I tried to add the two screens to the energon cube papercraft that TakaraTomy put out. It's not perfect but this will give you both screens + the pink cube, and you could probably cut out the white cube too if you guess at the bit that's cut off since it's an internal part that folds inside.

    Just make sure that when you print it, you aren't squishing its size to fit the page or anything. I tried it out and it seemed to work!

    Couple of tips:
    • With the screens, cut inside the white border or they may not fit right.
    • The Energon Cube isn't actually a cube, it tapers on one end. This means the papercraft cube needs to go in a certain way.
    • You don't need to glue the papercraft cube, just fold it together and it should hold its shape. Once it's inside the clear cube, that'll hold it together too.
    • I found regular paper worked for the cube if I was really hardcore gentle with it. As long as its sides are all as concave as can be and you don't push it too hard, once it's in the plastic cube it's good to go.

    Deadsled's put together a higher-res version, check it out as well!

    So I spent a few hours re-creating this and also added some more "display" options.

    Hope you like.

    Enjoy! :D 

    This is a preview only:

    The white box was on the original, so I figured I'd leave it . . . .


    Solid lines are cuts dotted lines are folds.

    A decent card stock (80#) would hold up to a lot of handling better if that's your concern.

    My personal preference was some gloss stock we had at work. Makes the color "pop" better
