GCI Toys is a small, privately owned retailer who specializes in custom parts for transformers and 3rd Party products. One of the their newest products is custom made Energon Cubes.
Each cube is 1 inch square, and they are sold in sets of 6 or 12. Colors include green, pink, and blue.
The cubes are advertised as MP scale, but in the comics and cartoons, the cubes vary in size so its not hard to slip these into any scale display.
The cubes are made out of clear tinted resin and do an excellent job of reflecting any ambient light. They have a very cool "glowy" look even under normal lighting. All of the six cubes I received from GCI have excellent corners and edges with no air bubbles what so ever. The cubes stack very well.
GCI cube on the right, Fans Toys cube on the left.
At $14.99 ($2.50 a piece) for a 6 pack, or $23.99 ($2.00 a piece) for a 12 pack the cubes arnt cheap, but I definitely feel like I got my moneys worth. The cubes have excellent lighting effects and make a great addition to my transformers display.

Those look like they could be some really cool photo props. Who is the vendor? And do they have a web store?
I found then. I ordered a bag each of red, blue and green. I think I can do some neat lighting effects with them if they catch the light and glow even half as well as the seem to. Just note only red is offered in 3,6,12 and 24 packs. Blue and green are just in 6 packs.
So I got a set each of Pink, Blue and Green. The merchant also threw in 3 purple ones. They are gorgeous. Nicely cast resin with no air bubbles. They are obviously pour cast as one side of each cube has slight ripple. But it actually adds to the effect/ Corners are sharp, and the colors are sharp and really catch and glow with the light. I think the Blue and Green actually look better than the pink. They really glow under photo lights. Good stuff!
