Given that there is no datasheet provided with the Makerbot RGB LED strips,
you won't have any real answer for sure...BUT!

If these are anything like the sparkfun LED strips:
http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10259, then you'll need 60mA per 3 LEDs.
There are 60 LEDs on the strip, so you'll need 1200mA per strip. Times 5
strips? You'll need a grand total of 6000mA @ 12V to power all 5 at once.
