    That's totally random, but at the same time, I love it.

    This reminds me a lot of the Unicron.com energon cubes. They come with this same sort of fold up paper insert, but not quite as bland as this pink one.

    As important as Energon cubes were to Season 1...Hasbro needs to get off their butts and put a boxed set together

    Yeah, because a set of plastic cubes that do absolutely nothing is going to sell gangbusters on Wal-Mart shelves :rolleyes: .

    Please verify where that info came from. Retailers like RK are listing the cube as a Amazon.jp exclusives. Retailers like tfsource list regular orders of MP13 without any mention of the addition of the cube.

    Actually, I remember an article where it was mentioned the Amazon.co.jp edition comes with two cubes, as opposed to all regular editions having one.
    It may have been a mistake though, since I didn't hear anything about the cubes again.

    I don't know if its been stated definately but all the official Takara pics show one cube as an accessory and in the resourses section two cubes are listed as the amazon.jp exclusive (not sure if this means 3 in total)

    every single pic of mp-13 with his accessories has a cube with him, the amazon pics have multiples

    but don't worry, dr wu will cast and sell them just like he did the piledrivers (i hope, kinda want like 20 for a display lol)

    ^ I'm pretty sure the displays at shows had amazon exclusive written next to the figure. It's also pointless for an amazon exclusive to be 1 extra energon cube. My paper money is on the regular edition to come without any energon cubes.

    Back to the paper fill out, I don't remember soundwave ever having a full energon cube on his chest. I can only remember him producing empty cubes.

    That's exactly why I bought two sets of 10 from Unicron.com, to display between MP-04 & MP-05. They aren't the same dimensions as the ones that come with SW, but they'll do nicely I think.


    True. But if you are gonna have more than one (Amazon) lying arond, I would think you would prefer to have the one(s) not attached to SW to be filled? Plus, since it's a free print out, I think it's cool to have the option.

    OOOOOOOOhhhhhhh, they put the paper one inside the clear box. These must be easy to make then! Although, I wish they were gold with multiple colors thrown in...
