    I seriously hate the idea of Pretenders. IMO it would really rape the atmosphere.

    Pretenders would make a good tv series if they stick to the way they were in masterforce and not the the 50 foot human version from the G1 comics.

    How is a 50 foot human a disguise. In masterforce they shrunk down to human size to blend in.

    Didn't an actor from the film say he turns into a transformer in a interview?

    We thought he was joking but what if he wasn't.

    Pretenders would be a horrible idea, I hope they scrapped it quickly.

    This could be... interesting. If it's done right it might actually be a good idea, but so far I've hated two variations of it (the Marvel G1 comics 50 foot humanoid appearances never made sense to me and the Masterforce thing was just not what I consider Transformers... though it was an enjoyable show). IDW's take on them was actually pretty cool and if done that way I think it might work out well, but that would need an entire movie just to explain so I doubt they'd use it at all.

    Interesting, but it's not one of the first things that come to my mind when I think of things that I'd like to see in the Movie's. However, I can actually imagine it working to a certain degree. If they can make it work, I'll give it a chance.

    when I was making up my own version of a movie Bludgeon, I made his inner robot have the ability to use holomatter to disguise itself as a regular person. If they did something similar to that, it could work.

    Pretenders just suck, they are a horrible idea.

    Why would they even consider adding one of the most unpopular idea of the transformer mythos?

    maybe if they did like a Battlestar Galactica type thing, you know with Cylons that look human? i dont know. Pretenders are pretty gay.

    Don't they have that already? With holo-drivers and pilots.

    Unless of course TF's can produce solid holograms.

    Just like in IDW'verse where TF's can feel what their avatars feel.

    Unless they go for the Japanese headmasters and brainmasters route where the big robot is just like a suit.

    "Something completely different?"
    Could they be planning to make these pretenders just robots that look human, like Data from Star Trek, only still able to transform?

    This movie is soooooooooooooo be teh roxors!

    I mean, really! Midgets, skanks a plenty, Hagen-Das-wave, and now we have Pretenders too!!!! <Squeal> I hope they have the octopus dude with the old undersea helmet. And the guy in yellow with the club! Soooooo cool! That thing could be like lurking in the bottom of the sorority house that is throwing the kegger that Sam's invited to! Sooooo sweet dude! It could be a semi horror movie too.

    Hawt idea!

    Guys, this is a totally new series. Its not G1. Lets keep an open mind! I think Pretenders could be good if done right. I mean I absolutely despised how Megatron and Starscream looked at the beginning. But I was able to delude myself and lie to myself that the design wasn't actual as horrible I thought. I'm sure we could all grow to love the Pretenders as we did everything else about the TF movie and rationalize all the bad into something good.

    Never was a fan of pretenders, however it is something that I'd be willing to give a shot. Never know if they don't try, it could turn out well.

    RC is going to be half transformer/prentender. Because she is going to be nearly half holorobot (full hologram head to toe) She most likely will be able to detach and walk around.
