    Nice! The auction site even has more photos from all angles.
    Not long ago I created a thread about that Alice prop and whatever happened to her, now we know! 'Course at 5000GBP she is way out of my price range. Odd how she looks more simplified than the CGI model, no cxbertronian letters on her, and the medusa-hair has less details too.
    You'll need to wait in line, Bayformers Prime has first dibs on faces and heads for his collection... ;) 
    Well, it was shot off him by Jon Voight I think? Or whoever played that agent.
    Indeed, even on screencaps it's hard to make out Alice's face "thanks" to the shakey-cam. Nice to see here it is kinda insectoid, with mandibles.
    Given that she is in the samemovie as Dickbot the Blender Guy, I am disappointed those were not boob-cannons...

    These puppets give me more “wows” than CGI models for some reason

    Ah, they're from back when the days when even 2 foot tall Decepticon was a huge threat.

    If someone really had a \'dead\' Transformer, it might turn out to be only playing dead.  Therefore, he/she should put it somewhere very secure or destroy it, just in case.

    I remember seeing the Allspark and the bodies of the First Primes (partially) in Paramount museum:rolleyes:  It was cool experience!
    Transformers have multiple faces. They are not only boxy-shaped plastic toys turning into vehicles from 80s. I'm proud, that there are multiple universes, stories, styles, diversity in general and Transformers franchise is not dogmatic.

    Autobots weren't near at that time. These decepticons were intended to be a threat for humans.

    I'll be bidding on the Scorponok Head & Tail, don't like my chances of winning either though!

    Man if I had the dead presidents to spend I'd be seriously tempted. Scroponuk is still unsettling, even if it's only part of him.
    Alice....remember kids don't put your finger in a fan or light socket.

    I'm pretty sure they're just saying how it isn't easily recognizable to non-fans and moviegoers without the label, which it isn't unless they've been keenly paying attention.

    There's no guarantee of that.

    Regardless, Russian's point was that Afterburner has to come into another movie thread to shit all over it. He can't stay the fuck out and just let fans enjoy pictures, for crying out loud.

    I’m gonna bet that you’ll follow with “TLK Cons are too weak” so here’s my counter argument:

    Frenzy, Alice, and Scorponok all look intimidating because they are meant to be threats to HUMANS. Fleshings vs alien killing machines isn’t exactly a fair fight.

    By comparison, let’s see the “1-minute screentime” TLK cons:
    Dreadbot, a medium-sized Transformer, died to a 70ft T-rex.
    Onslaught, who is slow as f*ck, died to two agile Autobots.
    Mohawk, a tiny motorbike, died to medium-sized Bee Sue.

    It’s all a matter of who gets a fair match and who doesn’t. If Alice went toe to toe with Bee that time she got into him, we’ll all be complaining “female transformers are too weak!!!”.

    I do like how people keep saying the same thing for design that haven't been used for over decade. Truly a wonderful the mind of a child is.

    I love how "bionicle's" is used as an insult against the movie designs. I happen to quite like Bionicle, so I see absolutely no problem with this...
