    The shot of the blonde chick walking away from the same place folks are screaming out of, combined with some of the rumor mill running hot about the Pretenders stuff (meetings with Spielberg and Bay, holographic characters, etc.) makes me wonder if the guys writing the TF2 script liked the IDW approach to universal takeover.

    Maybe these aren't pretenders. Maybe they're goopy human facsimilies, like in Devastation, etc.

    Just an idea.

    actually, I perfer the facsimilies idea, but since when the film comes out it would be the 25 anniversary, so Hasbro would want Pretenders som how.

    Hasbro has very little to say in the movies, they can only suggest Bay and co to change some things.

    I'd prefer the fasimiles idea any time over Isabel Lucas folding her arms and legs and becoming a robot.

    Man, I tell you what - it doesn't matter what universe you're in, it's the Classy Blonde bombshells that secretly turn into robots that have the most diabolical plans.

    Maybe they're just angry at all the men out there. :peoples:

    This is what I said in another post.
    Isabel Lucas playes a Decepticon Pretender, and I'll bet a box of donuts that it's the same robot that we've been seeing in the past few days.

    Ya' know....

    Pretenders always pushed the limits of plausibility toy-line wise, buuuuuut....

    To a film-maker type, possibly paging through the archival materials of TF history, the notion of there being a way to disguise a robot character AS a human would probably be appealing from a story-telling perspective. Witness Masterforce: you almost wouldn't have known it was a story about giant alien robots at times. Think of it what you will, as a plot device it does open up a lot more options.

    Knowing the Bay logic/style, its a safe bet that we'll be talking about a smaller-than-human size robot hiding in the human shell (A la Men In Black) rather than Blackout or whoever clacking his braclets together ( ;)  ) but it'd still be a win-win. Useful plot device for the writers, nice nod to history for the fans.

    Time will tell.....

    Maybe she doesn't feel like running? After all she's a hot blond chick.

    Come on... Transformers are not Humanisers!!!! They scan vehicules and objects... not living creatures of flesh.... She will probably work for the Decepticons has a spy being forced to leak information or something like Starscream kidnaps her family and tells her to obey him or blaow... but not an actual robot disquised as a human female.... Thats for Terminator not Transformers!!!!!

    You miss the point, fasimiles are the things you see in the car [In most cases the "moustache man"] But the idea is that they can use them to travel around as a humanoid, almost like reconnaissance

    I don't know, usually when you have a character with that type of body language in the film, especially in a scene like that (she walks, everyone else runs in fear,) it's usually to suggest some type of malicious intent.

    I was never set on the fasimiles/holomatters. For the movie, I'd be concerned that they'd start bending the rules again, then the special effects twist with the live shots making the quality look somewhat odd. Then there was the allcube -V-'

    Like blonds ever know what's going on? Okay, bad, I know, don't kill me. Please don't kill me!!
