We received the following message earlier today from PopBox Collectibles:

Hi Everyone,

We will be producing a limited edition Transformers' All Spark Cube as a
paperweight for early October 2007 release.

The cube will be around 1:4 scale at around 7-8cm in size (size like Rubik's
cube), made of die-cast metal and will be replica of that in the movie.
The edges will be more rounded for safety purposes. Will come in a
wooden box or sort of specialty packaging and possibly a small
transparent base to stand it up on its corner, to be determined.

Please see attached pictures.

The SRP will be USD60.00

*ORDER DEADLINE AUGUST 31. * We will be basing our production on
this quantity on your order and will be limited release.


Here is an image that they attached that they used as reference for their product.

First Re-Issue Ultra Magnus and now this...

Yes, it appears to be true, but don't get too excited, the prices are a bit outrageous at $98.72 for each, except Starscream who is $79.88.

All are listed as IN STOCK even Megatron.

Here are the links:

A product description from Megatron:

Features & Specifications

Transformers Encore original style transforming robots
TRANSFORMER Megatron - G1 New PackageDesign. This 6 inches Transformer Megatron PVC figure in the alternate mode of a Walther P 38. Megatron is the Decepticon leader. This is a remake of the Original Collection piece, which are nearly impossible to find now and was one of the best selling items when the first edition came out. This revised figure features some new parts (i.e. new molds).

I cannot imagine a lot of people will buy it from Walmart as you were able to get a set for less than half that amount from most online retailers.

However, many have sold out, so this option is now available.

Is this a test to see how well imported collectible toys would sell on the wholesale market? Or something else?

Let us know what you think!

As always, we'll try to keep you informed of any new toys news, in the Toy News section.
