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.

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.

So the fans get pissed cause there wasnt enough put in the first one so now they decide to take every idea ever created in the TF universe and put it in the 2nd one? There is such a thing as to much. Whats the next rumor reveal going to be minicons and cyberkeys? Maximal and Predacons? Im starting to lose faith in this franchise with every rumor that comes out. Even if there not true just having people think thats what it is makes me sick to my stomach.

This is not good. Pretenders were a bad idea. Maybe they should introduce Unicron. That way he can just devour this mess.

Only the U.S. Pretenders idea was bad: giant robots inside shells of [i]even more giant[i/] people.

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.

I think inserting "pretender" technology is a logical progression of the way the Decepticons will continue to infiltrate human society. Frenzy had a difficult enough time getting around without compromising his mission due to his small size not allowing him a more sophisticated altmode; a technorganic shell is better suited for his kind of work compared to a stereo, MP3 player, cell, etc. It allows for more versatility until the time comes where you need to use your scanning tentacle or your built-in plasma pistol. This is a much-appreciated progression of Cybertronian technology as well as a great homage to an obscure guilty pleasure within the TransFan community... if it's true, it's cool!

First powerlinking, now Pretenders. Is every character of TF2 going to have its own gimmick?

I didnt like this idea when I saw in Screamers with Peter Weller.

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.

Ya know, this version of the Pretenders seems to be a mix of both the U.S. and Masterforce versions of them. Like the Masterforce ones, the shell can look like a regular human instead of an armored human. But, unlike the Masterforce ones, this one doesn't need to size change when entering and exiting its shell, which is more like the U.S. version. However, "the robot inside" is small enough already, so the shell isn't a giant human anyway.

Well... it sucks.

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 actually liked the pretenders,but since this is a bay movie,we cant expect them to put it in on account of one thing:REALISM!

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

I'm geussing the character gets in her body to hit o Sam so that he'll spill info about the allspark or autobots or something. This seems kind of corny. And somehow the robot gets exposed to be a robot and goes all evil on sam thus trapping him inside the car thus leading to the scene in this picture.

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.

I still doubt that even Michael Bay would include a Pretender.
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!)
Re: Isabel Lucas Character Movie Rumor (828193)
Posted by Rocketeer on November 4th, 2008 @ 9:07pm CST
I'm all for the scantily clad females and all that, but remember the last line of Movie figures?
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?

I agree it will seem like a Terminator rip

...or, alternativly, we could all just actually go and watch the movie first, and THEN decide if it's rubbish or not!

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

This is awesome!
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.

That thing looks like the love-child of Frenzy and a Predator.

And if it is true, it will be interesting. It looks like this movie will be drawing upon a wider spectrum of TF lore.
