The motive of writing this post is to let all the movie goers to have a quick reference to the robots featured in the movie - either before or after watching it.

Believe me, as mentioned in my movie review - this movie can be confusing. I thought it would be beneficial for you to understand who's fighting with who in the movie.

In fact, I learned a lot about who's who in the movie, after I wrote this post.

If you disagree, please close this post immediately, else, don't wallop me. :P

Janelle: Thanks.

The Pretender is not a new concept in Transformers, you can see the link here


BUT, it's a new concept to have a hot chick as the pretender for Decepticons :P

It doesn't matter, as long as guys (especially Sam) enjoy it
