    I'm glad that never happened then. Alice's design as a Transformer was terrible, similar in the same way that I'm not a fan of most of the TF designs from AOE and TLK... a distinct lack of alt mode kibble in robot mode. Alice basically just flipped herself inside out when transforming to robot mode, whereas a Transformer to me should have distinct kibble on their bodies. With vehicular Transformers it's obviously stuff like doors, windows, wheels etc. With Beast Wars TFs we see animal parts on different parts of their bodies, but this is something distinctly missing on Alice. Thanks, I hate it.

    Alice is barely a Transformer, and I doubt they really intended for her to be a fully blown one when the movie was made. Someone probably had an idea for a super sexy girl to turn out to be a killer alien robot as a story beat in the film and ran with it. Everyone points to it as a Pretender nod, but honestly I think we are just using our Transformers fan hats a little too much, they probably had no intent or even knowledge of the concept. The alt modes (and their corresponding kibble) that we do see in these films anyway are purely for marketing/placement purposes anyway, they have no reason to with a human.

    Probably the same way all those random alien ships and stuff in DOTM are just generic alien things.

    200 million budget, filming in Canada.

    Part of me wants to see a continuation of TLK, just because I'm curious where Bay was going with the Unicron horns.

    Then again, knowing how he handles continuity the next film would probably not make any reference to that at all.
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    Different reports say different things... so I'm still not even sure which story universe this 7th movie is following.

    The huge budget is a big risk, which is going to blow out to $300-400 million after Paramount & Hasbro spend on global marketing.
    Once the fad of live action robots on the big screen wore off after the first 3, it was Michael Bay and his explosions and filming style that got bums in seats in the last couple of his TFs movies.
    Just look at the Bumblebee Movie - it was still a Transformers live action movie with robots and action to the same level as the 2007 movie, and yet it failed to draw in as many people or dollars, because the concept was old and it wasn't a switch-off-the-brain Bay-verse action movie.

    Even if everything was back to normal from covid by mid-22, I just don't know how they can interest enough movie goers into seeing another Transformers movie that is somehow more exciting and different to the previous 6, to generate over $600 million at the box office (not all of the ticket price goes to the movie producer, as the theatre keeps a little to pay for its costs... but the excessive price of movie tickets these days is to cover the massive cost of screening these movies).

    The project that is currently being called Transformers 7 is said to have it's first actor under negotiations - Anthony Ramos.

    Another article, from the site Deadline, is listing a couple more potential cast members... but still no one has been locked in yet, so might not even end up being in it.
