Okay - we know from the 1980's comics and the toys that the Pretenders were...were...well they were crap. Reading a lot of your responses to the confirmation of the Pretender in my other Thread - it seems a lot of you aren't best pleased that the new hottie is actually a neatly packaged Transformer. However - Bay is directing this movie - and he loves to see cool stuff - and he has got much more money for the effects in this film... ...What if this Pretnder DOESN'T have a Shell - What if the hot babe (sorry forgotten her name - will stick with hottie for now ) IS the Transformer - we actually see HER body transform into a robot. This would take the Pretender idea to a whole new level - no stupid suit you carry around with you - if you transform and get taken on a wild care chase you would have to return to pick up the suit after the finish - noooo, by having the body as the actually Transformer Bay would allow us to see something VERY cool - the human body changing shape - maybe in grotesque ways - perhaps taking down to the pores as they 'flip' around to reveal metal sections. Think about a possible toy - the original Pretender was a big bulky shell, you had to use the belt and helmet to keep it together, and the actual Transformer inside was crap - skeletal. They are not Mass shifting, Bay has said this for the first movie - and he is going to want the Pretender to be Very Cool - if he sticks with the 'Shell' idea, you'll end up with a robot like Frenzy from TF1.... If you go with the Human Body transforming - then you will get a very unique Transformer. Comments?
