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.

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.

That's what I was thinking.

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.

i sure hope there isnt anything else to this. i dotn wanna see this guy as part of a dlc pack, unless he comes free then totally, ill be more than happy to get more parts.
