Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen - It may feature human looking robots with long tongues?!

I saw mention of this over at io9. Apparantly Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen will have a new kind of Transformer - one along the lines of Terminator and the Cylons. That's right True Believer, this one looks human.

It looks like the character of Alice (Isabel Lucas- Home and Away), a girl who Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) meets in college, is actually something called a Pretender (which is a Transformer who hides inside a human shell).

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.

Then there is this PhillyFilmGirl set video from the Princeton filming that may go some way to confirming this. Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Ramon Rodriguez run away, and then Isabel stalks towards them. There's a crowd of screaming students who run past Isabel — so they're not running from her, but from something else, something which doesn't scare her.

Just looking at the cast list over on IMDB I see there is a character to be played by America Olivo (Bitch Slap) simply called Frisbee Girl. That just struck me as funny and probably does exactly what the name says.
