It wouldn't have a Cybertronian altmode since the Movieverse Pretender concept has the human mode as the primary altmode. Alice transformed from Robot to Human and back. That's what made her a Pretender in that sense.

And, again, how is that "transforming"? That's just a simple "dress up" toy.

Transformers are toys that "transform" or "convert", not "put on new outfits" and such. That's what dolls do.

Let me ask you this. How would a fully transformable toy of Alice, transforming from this to this and back, be feasible?

Figure that out, and then you got a workable design for Movieverse Pretenders.

And that simply doesn't fit HasTakTomy's methods and engineering standards for what makes a Transformers toy Transform. So, if it's not workable, then I guess that's that.
