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.

The car looks cool. Actually, the robot looks cool too but isn't it a bit close to G1 Skids?

So that's what prowl looks like when he's blue and missing his shoulder cannons...

Looks pretty cool, almost feminine in the face.

The question is, will he be available in the future as a DLC?

When I first saw the colours my mind said "Tracks" even though the configuration is wrong.

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.
ps: :CON:

That's what I was thinking.

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.

I'd buy a fig of this and happily call it Skids.

So what's the ultimate goal for this? What are their plans? Is it just something fun that HMS and Ford teamed up to do to promote this car, or is their something more in the works.
