Frampton Comes Alive?! What the hell?

Data-Cons are data storage devices used by the Mini-Cons. They are flat, slate-gray discs that bear the Mini-Con emblem, and can give off a glowing emergency beacon that can be seen from great distances. (This glow is virtually identical to the glow of a Mini-Con storage panel.)

Upon activation, Data-Cons emit a series of bright holographic images while relaying their data to the one who activated them.

Data-Cons are used not only to contain data, but can also store life-sustaining energon. During the search for the Mini-Cons on Earth, the discovery of a Data-Con's energon supplies helped the Autobots pull through some tough missions.

Note: Data-Cons first appeared in the PlayStation 2 game, Transformers. The data they contain is "bonus" content for the player's amusement, like renders, development art, comics, toy pictures, music, and even some never-before-released Generation One public service announcements in the same vein as ones from the G.I. Joe cartoon.
