Primus help us all. You all realize what this could mean right?

The Cybernet Space Cube actually might have been a decent idea which was just so far ahead of it's time that the proper medium hadn't been invented yet!

We STILL don't have one single proper toy of the Second Generation Cybertronians from the G2 comics, but the most frequently derided part of the G2 franchise gets rehashed! WHY?!?
(Yes, I know we've gotten toys named Jhiaxus, Rook, and Mindset, but none of them had a trace of minty-green)
