It's now November. The big holiday push is about to happen, and some of the larger movie francises set to have summer releases, will be starting to show their trailers advertising what is to come.
But it seems before we get to trailers even, the movie rumors will just not stop coming.
This one comes from an anonymous source. Salt shakers ready?...
Isabel Lucas character, 'Alice', is stated by this insider to be a pretender. That's right, she is rumored to be a robot hiding inside a human shell. Supposedly the robot is similar in size and design to frenzy, with a long tongue, a scanning tentacle, and has an arm that transforms into an energy weapon ala Bumblebee. All this according to the TFW 2005 Movie Insider.
You can view the original rumor here.
What's a pretender you might ask? Try checking out one of Seibertron's pretender galleries in the Masterforce section of the galleries to get an idea of how the outer shell, inner robot idea worked in Generation 1.

However, the Masterforce treatment of Pretenders was much better.
Victory... well, I can't say. I've only seen the first three episodes of it. From what I saw of the Dinoforce, they weren't as cool, but okay, I guess.

Non-IDW Pretenders are stupid and I pray that this is just misinformation.
The word on that thing on the windshield was that it wasnt a whole robot but a physical prop and placeholder.

Pretenders would be too much of a Terminator idea for this movie.
Of course that it can be done, but it doesn't mean that it must be done.
If everything done to transformers is put in one single movie (The Fallen, Pretenders, Combiners, Unicron, G1, G2, etc.) the heads of the people going to the theaters would literally asplode.

i can understand how the concept of a robot hiding inside a fake human decoy would be very good for spying/infiltratian,but there are a few problems wrong with it when explaining it-
1.how did it get the ability to create a fake human to hide in.
2.how are they gonna explain how it gets back inside without it bieng complerely fake-looking
3.if it's inside a shell,how would it be able to use weapons
4.wasn't this robot confirme by hasbro to be ravage

If this is true, this movie's plot seems very complex. We've got powerlinking on both sides, pretenders, revivng of a decepticon, revenge of the fallen, and from the insider clip, somehow a fight in the desert. And Japan, and Egypt, and an air force base. Plus a female bot, and Sam going crazy, and a transformer who feels an Ice cream truck is a good diguise. PLUS Megatron coming back as an alien tank. Interesting.

would ever Bay make that crappy of a decision?

It just seems too convenient.
Was Bay on the couch, watching "Sarah Connor Chronicles" one day, and he suddenly decided "Hell yeah! Let's thrown a Terminator in the movie!"?
I'm still not buying it.
But even if it is true, I'll accept it *as long as "Alice" isn't Soundwave.*

With Bay, that wouldn't surprise me at all. And, honestly, it wouldn't bother me. I think it would be a creative way to include Pretenders in the movie-verse. Besides, who doesn't want a legitimate reason to have a scantily clad woman on their display shelf amidst the TFs? (oh, please let her figure be scantily clad!)

Remember Bayverse Arcee, with her hunchback and wings?
Do you *really* think they'd get a Pretender figure right?
That said, allow me to clarify that I'm not totally against the idea of Pretenders in the movies.
I just think that Movie #2 is too soon, especially if they're introducing big-name concepts like The Fallen and Unicron.
Doubly so due to the presence of Sarah Connor Chronicles on TV.
Michael Bay would come off looking like a plagiaristic hack.
Honestly, wouldn't it make more sense to wait until Movie 3 or 4 before introducing Pretenders?
But that's just me.
What do I know?

Well, that's how I do things, anyway. I'm reserving judgment until I see the darn thing.

I love the way they're made in Masterforce and I like it a lot more that they're smal robots in this one.
Here's hoping for monster pretenders.
