"Before time began… there was The Cube"
. That is the first thing you heard when you sat down at the theater to enjoy your first Transformers Live Action Movie
. "The Cube
" was The Allspark
; giver of life to Cybertronians.
But the question of the hour is, will we see it on Transformers 4?
Thanks to 2005 Boards member Anodythe, we have information that The Cube may return in some form (as a memory or repaired). This piece of rumor (yep, it's not fully confirmed yet) is coming from NPR
who made a visit to one of Paramount’s Set Warehouses.
"Randall Thropp, a Paramount archivist, recoils in mock fear from the power of the AllSpark as set decorator Rosemary Brandenburg takes it from the glass case. The AllSpark was used as a prop in Transformers; it may have another life in an upcoming sequel."
A little movie factoid: The AllSpark Cube was technically a prop in the first Transformers, because an actor actually touched and even ran with it. Brandenburg thinks the cube might make a reappearance in Transformers 4 as set decoration. It's too early to tell. But archivist Randall Thropp says that unfortunately, she can't take the AllSpark and use it in the film.
"That is the only cube we have, right here," Thropp says. It resides in a glass showcase.
Brandenburg can borrow the cube and make copies, though. "A movie set is a pretty dangerous place for things," she says. "We have to repair things constantly. Our special-effects brothers and sisters are running around blowing things up, and our stunt brothers and sisters, too."
Brandenburg often has to make multiple copies of items because of all those blowups.
We will have to wait and see if this Transformers 4
rumor is true.
