There’s a rumor going around that Isabel Lucas (who’s playing a girl named Alice in the next Transformers movie) is going to be a Pretender. As much as that might seem initially cool, it’ll just turn Transformers into another Terminator movie (we don’t need any more Terminator stuff seeing as how there’s a new movie coming out in 2009 and the Sarah Connor Chronicles is already on Fox.) That and the fact that Isabel is supposed to have “an arm that transforms into an energy weapon, a long tongue, and a scanning tenticle”-TFW2005 means that something slutty between her and Megan Fox is probably going to happen *shudder*.
I also think it’s so stupid to have the Transformers be so big and then have Pretenders, which are obviously as small an anorexic girl 😛 . The only reason I could possibly think of for having a Transformer that small would be to make them a spy. I’d still think that a Pretender would be incredibly weak against the normal Transformers though. It’s doubtful that the whole spy factor would be worth the risk of getting totally owned by the other Transformers. There would definitely have to be multiple Pretenders to make them even the slightest bit useful. Another thing, wouldn’t Sam and Mikaela notice that Alice doesn’t eat food or that she had a huge tongue? I mean I understand that they’re not that bright, but still. Those kinds of things are pretty hard to miss.
Hopefully this rumor isn’t true. Hopefully this picture is just some of the footage from the new Terminator movie. That would make the most sense. Either that or Michael Bay is being really dumb.
I found some really cool and strange pillows that I thought I’d share. First off is this strange horse head pillow if you want to go Godfather style on anyone. It’s actually kind of cute if you ignore the fact that it’s a chopped off head of a horse 🙂 . You can buy it in the US for $45 and it’s already stuffed or you can pay $35 and stuff it yourself. If I wanted this pillow for any weird reason, I would buy the stuffable one so I could make it as firm or squishy as I wanted 😀 .
Next on the list are these awesome Transformer pillows. You can choose either Autobot or Decepticon pillows for your roboty nap needs. These pillows are $20 at Thinkgeek but I think they’re either out of stock now or not selling them anymore 😦 . Hopefully they come back soon.
Thinkgeek also offers these nifty beating heart pillows. Every time you turn on the pillow it’s supposed to have a unique rhythm of heartbearts specifically to calm you down so you can nap easier. It’s supposed to help out with stress too 🙂 . I kinda wonder how hard the beating mechanism is inside. I would hope there’s enough fluff around it for you to be able to snuggle with the pillow comfortably because from the pictures it looks pretty solid.
Sofa Garden has some really interesting pillows available but they are pretty expensive. For instance, one of their Cigar pillows is $99.99. They also have a whole line of pillows that are breakfast related items. My favorite are the sushi related pillows. You can buy small rolls for $49.99 each and large rolls for $79.99 each (which means I can’t ever have one because I wouldn’t spend that much on a pillow). My favorite is the salmon sushi roll because the little red stripes just make it so fun 😀 .
Last on the list are these blood puddle pillows. They vary in size and shape so that’s pretty cool. It makes sense because you would expect a puddle of blood to be pretty random. I actually saw these and thought that they should make fuzzy green mold pillows since the fuzziness looks a little weird for blood. Also I really love the cute little Husky snuggling with it lol. I could see my cats kneading these pillow with evil looks in their eyes too haha 😀 . Hrmm I’m not sure if you can actually buy these pillows or if they’re just a creation from this artist. Either way, they’re really cool and highly appropriate for Halloween.
So Transformers 2 is called Revenge of the Fallen and it’s predicted to come out June 26, 2009. Pretty cool title I guess but really the only ones that “fell” were Jazz and Megatron and other nameless Decepticons. I really hope that Starscream comes back to be his usual double-agent self.
There’s supposed to be a lot more Transformers this time which is awesome. I get sick and tired of listening to those dumb army guys in the first one. I’d much rather have the whole movie with Transformers constantly duking it out. But I’m pretty sure Arcee is a confirmed transformer for this movie seeing as how it was rumored that she would be in the last one. Also it’d be my best guess that Hot Rod is going to be in this movie. Especially cuz Michael Bay said that he had to try and make Bumblebee less popular when Hot Rod was mentioned. I mean you kinda need that young hard-headed character lol.
