‘Transformers 2’ Pretender Robots There Are!

Here is how Alice is being described: "In the case of Alice, the shell will be an attractive human woman while the inner robot is best described as a hybrid of the Frenzy robot design from the first movie. The Pretender Transformer will have an arm that transforms into an energy weapon, a long tongue, and a scanning tentacle." (Are we sure this isn’t a sex bot?)

Recently a set video (not a good copy), featuring a scene being shot in Princeton University, has appeared supporting the claim that Alice is a Pretender. Watch below as she walks calmly across the campus as students are rushing pass her in panic.

Pretenders is a subline within the Transformers toy line, introduced in 1988. The gimmick was that the Transformers were supposedly capable of disguising their robotic forms through the use of synthetic organic outer shells. A British comic [via io9] introduced Pretenders to the world.

So whats your take on this bit of news?
