Such a shame Australian Police drive around in Holden's these days.

Holden is the Australian arm of GM, just as Opel is the European arm.

Among other vehicles, Holden designed the hatchback version of the Chevrolet Cruze, and of course the Chevrolet Camaro that became Bumblebee, the underpinnings of which are the GM Zeta platform, created for and donated by Holden's large family car, the Holden Commodore. The Commodore was sold briefly in the U.S. as the Pontiac G8. Holden vs Ford rivalry is in-grained in Australian motor culture; the Ford Falcon is the Commodore's traditional rival. While both vehicles borrow some pieces from their parent companies' international parts bin, both vehicles are unique compared to the (approximate) equivalents in other large markets such as the U.S.; both are large and powerful, are trimmed of the bloat found on U.S. cars, eschew the U.S's preference for wallowy performance for a more European sports style, and as rear wheel drive vehicles, their highly-tuned versions can be compared to Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi sports variants.

Not really. It shares the same zeta platform chassis, (and engine)but that's about it. Body is completely different. The re-badge of the Commodore is the Chevy Caprice.

Never know. All there asking is input for a few characteristics of a potential new character. NOt which director we want to see for the next TF movie. Your right through that ultimetly, the higher ups will have the final say.

Why is it bad that the police drive holdens?

Because if they were to make him Barricade then it leaves the door open for a potential toy, but it would be realistically inaccurate to deco it in Blue and White checker board stripes.

Unless some of the more weirder States like Victoria let their Police drive Fords, but I only ever see Holdens around here, and sometimes other brands but they're normally parked on the side of the road, unmarked, and people slow down a lot when we see them.

We have the results of Ford Australia and High Moon Studios effort to transform a Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo into a Transformers: Fall of Cybertron character. Fans were asked to determine the characters faction, color, etc. Here's the resulting character Autobot Falcatron!

Image courtesy of Player Attack:


There's a new Transformers character on the block - the first ever giant robot created by fans. Working together with Activision and Ford, more than 1,000 Australian Facebook users have shared their ideas, images and concepts, literally transforming the iconic Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo sedan into a new character to stand alongside Optimus Prime.

I can't say I'm impressed. It looks like an Alternator so it's hardly new and innovative. Based on the Jazz/Shockwave/etc. use of this design I'd say there isn't enough leg junk to transform into a car.

It's a cool design.

But I have to say, that looks nothing like a Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo. It's got a Ford logo, but aside from that there's no resemblance to the real car.

looks like an alternater toy thats already been made...
and i dont like it. since its an autobot, it needs to look either: stupid, ugly, and/or terrible design wise. its a step in the right direction but just not stupid, ugly, and/or terrible design wise to be an iconic autobum.

The Ford Falcon is a large, four-door family car - Taurus-ish for the Yanks. The fact that this is no longer a Falcon from the windscreen backwards makes the whole thing kind of pointless.

Maybe the idea was a cybertronian car that would logically become a Falcon on earth.

Sweet gravy! He's a new head and redeco from being more Jazz than the offical cybertronian Jazz. Just reshell the TF2010 toy, Jet Vehicon style.
