    I noticed on the back of my Optimus, on the Robot mode backpack, it has a sorta rubsign dealy.

    What's up with this?

    It's called an energon chip. Almost all of the Transmetals have them. You'll need to look in hidden spots to find most of them.

    Lots of BW figs have them, not just Transmetals.

    Only the later BW figs have them. There are more BW figs without than with Energon Chips. So I associate them with TM's and not BW's.

    I don't think the TM2's had them. Didn't they only have the "Spark Crystals"?

    I think most of the second year (regular BW) and third (Transmetals & Fuzors) year toys had them. Many earlier BW toys were remolded to accomodate them (like repaints Lazorbeak and Grimlock)
