    On NPR this morning, Susan Stamburg was reporting from the Warner Brothers set warehouse. Today's segment was about set dressing. While being shown sepcially made props/set pieces, she made mention that the set dresser she was interviewing may have to borrow the one-of-a-king Cube prop from the first Transformers movie, as it may make an appearence in the fourth. It sounded like the set dresser was going to made a copy of the original cube as the original may not be used.

    I wish I had better info, names, places...but I just caught the story on my way out the door to work...now, I'll be late :rolleyes: 

    Oops...Nevermore is correct...it should have been Paramount. If you can't get the sound link, read the Full Story.

    Do you have a link or something to back this up with? I'm not calling you a liar or anything I would just like to see this myself.

    What does Warner Bros have to do with Transformers, a Paramount production?

    "The AllSpark was used as a prop in Transformers; it may have another life in an upcoming sequel."
    That sounds like it could have been for 2009, when it did get used... but I'm being cautiously theorizing that the AllSpark will return as a MacGuffin like in the first film, either by time warping or by being reconstructed (like in a comic).

    This could be interesting, actually; I believe it was a plot point in the Reign of Starscream comics that he tried to create a new Cube, powering it with the sparks of sacrificed Autobots.

    Perhaps this concept may be seen in the fourth film?

    If they pull a "there was a second cube all along!" Deus Ex Machina, then I will rage.

    It wouldn't really surprise me.
    The Fallen himself said that the power of the cube cannot be destroyed merely...(wait for it)....transformed.

    Plus it would be a convenient way to bring Megatron back from the dead....again....

    This is pretty interesting.

    EDIT: Her budget to make copies of the original cube is "a million dollars or so"?! HOLY $#!&

    I don't see anything of significance here. She seems to be simply speculating purely on the basis that a new TF movie is being filmed.

    I always thought "the cube" was a nice underbase homage.
    I take this with a grain of salt. I doubt anything is final for T4.

    Maybe Spike dies and the Cube reforms. Then it is used to reformat the remaining bots.

    Willing to bet that either;

    A) They find that there has been a second cube all along

    or

    B) The cube is just in the background and is like a way to say 'this is still part of the Transformers film series' kinda like the shockwave news clipping in ROTF being used to say 'this is still part of the Transformers series'

    or

    C) This is just a silly persons opinion of a film that has not even entered production and they have not even watched the first film to realise that the cube and the supposed two remaining shards have been destroyed or combined with the Autobots. (Yes in the comics they rebuilt the Allspark - but in the comics they had zombie Transformers after the events of the first film so this will likely not follow the comics)

    I'm gonna say it'll appear in a flashback, if anything.

    A second Allspark doesn't make sense at all. But I can easily see them create a new Allspark and somehow restore the energy in it.

    But I was under the impression the Allspark energy was transferred to Sam, so it might have transferred again into the Matrix when he reformed that. Would explain how suddenly Optimus knows stuff about The Fallen and the other Primes in the final battle, even though he knew nothing before he got killed.

    The cube is a stupid concept.

    I very much hope it doesn't return.

    Didn't we go through this already in Reign of Starscream? Screw the allspark, it's dead, it's gone, come up with a new macguffin.
