The Cube Reappears?

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

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?

Just found it. Scroll down to "For film set decorators, tiny detail count."

"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 $#!&
