    In an interview, Orci, Kline, and Vogel were asked if any new TF Prime characters would be showing up. Vogel replied that a security guard character would show up who transforms into a janitor. Well we've already had a security guard guy at a museum. Was Vogel joking or could there be a Pretender showing up capable of imitating any human? Could this Pretender mimic the security guard at first and then transform into a janitor character? Could this be a school janitor who could be spying on Jack, Raf, and Miko?

    But you never know with these guys. A pretender character doesn't seem farfetched to me given the second TF movie.

    Probably a joke, but awesome if true. Wonder how that would work out in toy form...

    Or maybe, and this is a crazy idea, they recycled his CGI model with a new skin to save money!

    I think he was referring the security guard that would get demoted to janitor for doing a horrible job of securing what he was guarding.

    According to Spunky, There will be two pretenders who turn into hamsters humping each other or some shit like that.

    If the sarcasm of other posters wasn't enough of an indication, to spell it out nicely:

    I think you're thinking just a little bit too much into it.

    No, Pretenders can't mass shift even though Arcee does it all the time.

    Pretenders in this universe could possibly mass shift. We don't know yet though, because there's no confirmation that they exist, let alone any technical info on them. I personally think they were just joking though. Sort of like how they they joked about Megatron vomiting in the Prime Behind the Scenes special we got before the show premiered. Unless I'm wrong and Megs barfs all over Bumblebee after he's awakened from his coma.

    They could be joking or not. Time will tell. Why make a comment like that and then the next thing you know, you have a security guard character guarding a museum with a replica of a Cybertronian artifact that Miko got caught trying to steal. I could see some Pretender character or some shape-shifting alien character using this whole situation to try to find the Autobots. The shape-shifter is on Earth after receiving evidence of the Autobot presence here in the form of that transmission Prime sent out into space. Maybe he's trying to capture Prime ulitmately for some reason. He's researching everything he can when he comes upon a newspaper article showing a piece of Autobot technology he instantly recognizes: an Energon harvester. He then ventures to the museum posing as some random journalist wanting to know more about the harvester and where it came from. After talking to the security guard, he reveals that some teengage Japanese exchange student was accused of stealing it but found innocent in the end. He asks for the girl's name and identity but the guard, for legal reasons, is unable to give him anything. The Pretender/Other Alien/Whatever decides to morph into the image of the guard so he can enter the museum and find the info himself inside the museum's computers. He finds an image of Miko there as well as her name. Later he finds out that she attends a High School in Jasper, Nevada. Wanting to spy on her and possibly get some information on the Autobots on Earth, he morphs into another image and attends an interview for a janitor position there. He gets the job and starts his spying.

    Headmasters and Targetmasters are what need to come back because I'd love to see a modern engineering take on them. I like the Pretender characters in the comic, especially bludgeon, but pretenders were such lame toys I can't imagine them ever being interesting to me. And it's all about toys. All the time. :)
