Alice is the name of a fictional character from the film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen played by Isabel Lucas. She is one of the evil Decepticons who disguises herself as a human being.

Tranformers: Revenge of the Fallen[edit]

A Pretender appears in Revenge of the Fallen as a machine posing as a human named "Alice", played by Isabel Lucas.[1]

Unlike most Transformers who adopt obviously mechanical alternate forms for disguise, Alice takes the form of an animatronic figure of Alice From Alice in Wonderland from an amusement park, and therefore is able to pass as human. This interpretation of Pretenders is closer to the Japanese Pretenders from Transformers: Generation 1, such as in the Masterforce anime, who actually turned into humans instead of wearing organic-looking shells over robot bodies, as was their depiction in the U.S.

One of the earliest scenes caught on camera during the production of Revenge of the Fallen was a puppet of Alice in robot mode attacking the car as Mikaela, Sam and Leo made their escape. Initial fan reactions lead many to think this was Frenzy from the last film returning.[2]

The special effects used to create Alice were done by Digital Domain, which used no green screen or motion capture in its work.[3]

Alice was voted one of the All-Time Hottest Robots by Techland in April 2010.[4]

Isabelle Lucas was recognized for her breakout performance as Alice at Spike TV's Scream 2009 awards, which was reported by the Associated Press. [5]

IDW Publishing[edit]

In the comic adaption of Revenge of the Fallen, it is mentioned that Alice took her form and name by scanning an animatronic Alice in Wonderland from an amusement park.

Alice appears in Transformers: Nefarious #1, set months after the events of the 2009 film. She steals an RV in Seattle and is chased by Skids and Mudflap, who keep her occupied until Sideswipe arrives and defeats her. She is taken to NEST headquarters on Diego Garcia to be examined by Ratchet. Sideswipe is disgusted by her decision to disguise herself as a human.

Books[edit]

The novel adaption of Revenge of the Fallen has an identical origin to the comic.

Movie plot[edit]

Posing as a college student to track Sam down and keep an eye on him, Alice overtly flirts with him at a party and later in his room after he has been revealed as able to write symbols in Cybertronian. Later on, she is revealed to be a Decepticon with a whip-like tongue. She chases Sam, Mikaela and Leo, but is killed when Mikaela crushes her against a light pole with a car and then runs over her to finish the job.
