I’m posting this collaboration of my son and I. He saw the original prop on ebay going for over, $20,000 dollars so he decided to make his own. He didn’t have the 20 grand and Dad wasn’t paying for the one on ebay. This is what the prop looks like:

His is made of 3/8” plywood. He drew and routed the design onto the plywood sides and inside bottom and colored it once it was finished.






He took advantage of the knots in the plywood when designing the sides of the box. The lid is a friction fit and the box measures: 8” X 8”, so he could use it to store things.

In the movie, the Allspark was the ultimate power source and was suppose to give the robots super power. The Decepticons are the evil ones and wanted it so they could rule the universe, while the Autobots are the good guys trying to keep it away from them. See the movie, you’ll be glad you did. It has a very well written plot being that it is an action movie. Most don’t and just depend on the action to make the movie.

Don and Zuki, I apologize for not defining what it was earlier.
