Isn't that the original reason the Deceps attack other planets?
The Allspark was actually called the Energon Cube in early drafts. However the reason they don't have them is because they aren't looking for a power source this time, they want to find a way to make more soldiers for their army.
the allspark was an energon cube.
Well I don't remember the all spark, so he should have kept the original name.
Or could Sunbow have a lawsuit going as fast as Gene Simmons would?
In the immortal words of Blackbeard: "Gentlemen, I be placed in a bewilderment."
Sense: this post makes none.
What bloody lawsuit? Energon cubes are Hasbro's trademark. I can't believe you don't know this.
Hasbro/Sunbow... same... or similar.
Anyways, I miss seeing the stacks of rainbowy glowing cubes. Not sure if today's movie software would make them that much better.
But if Bay loves explosions, why not shoot a warehouse full of them?
You do realize that Hasbro and Michael Bay worked together to make these movies, right?
To be honest I think that's really a stupid name. Not saying I hate the term Energon Cubes, but when it's applied to a singular object like that it sounds kinda weird. Also the point wasn't for it to be remembered. It's an entirely new artifact much like the Matrix from the original movie.
...who is Sunbow and what does that have to do with anything?
No, I really just shoot some G1.
Lost interest within 30 minutes of the first movie.
Hasbro could have brought back classic Ops after Skyfire or whoever sacrificed himself:

Your responses are making less and less sense. Come back when you're sober. I'm done.
uhm, why would there be random rainbow-y cubes on Earth, anyay?
Watching the Con's chase after energon cubes in all the different continuities was something I found to be extremely boring.
Not to be overly picky about a thread title but "What Michael Bay lacks" sounds rather open ended and like a topic that covers his weak points as a director. But your topic seems to be "The live action films lack Energon Cubes".
Michael Bay lacks the talent of telling a story.
I was recently watching I am Number 4 with a friend and when it was clear that the movie would end in the next 20 minutes, I wondered "They are not going to end the movie without telling us why they were actually hunted and what this is all about?" then when the staff roll came, I read "MICHAEL BAY". And everything was clear. It seems this man is only about visuals. Not stories. But I want stories, dammit.
The only excuse I can accept is, if there is a second part planned and they are going to tell everything there, because they just find it out in the second movie.
With the Transformers movies it is the same. I have to see the third one yet, guess I go to the cinema next week. But the first movies? Everything is bombastic visuals. But there is nothing behind it.
IKR, that's why I came into this thread.
George Arthur Bloom tells more in 66 minutes (3 episodes of More than Meets they Eye) that Michael did in ... 3 hours?
The basic premise of the war in Cybertron is that both Autobots and Decepticons battle for a source of energon. But sometimes this varies, like in the movies.
The real cause of the war is the power of the Allspark,although the lack of energon is there too, but it would be solved by simply having the Allspark, which in early drafts was called the Energon Cube.
In the movies, they want either to build an army or restore Cybertron. Having the Allspark would also provide them with energon, so it was a double gain. The need of energon would simply be solved by having the Allspark, so, the search for energon is also present in the movies.
