Could this Ford Falcon be the next Robot in Disguise?
To celebrate the upcoming release of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Activision Blizzard has partnered with Ford Australia for a promotion that allows Australian Facebook users to decide on the makeup of an Australian Ford Transformers car.
By going to the Ford Australia and Ford Falcon Facebook pages, users are able to vote on the characteristics of a Ford-based Australian themed Transformer.
Once the promotion concludes, the results will be sent to the developers of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, High Moon Studios, which will be then be used to create a piece of concept art by the studio’s concept art department at High Moon Studios lead by Jim Daly.
The Australian Transformer will then be unveiled on August 22 to promote the local release of the game.
As of press time, users have already decided that the Transformers should be an Autobot and based on the Falcon XR6 Turbo sedan.
In the 2007 live-action movie, Transformers, the Deception character Barricade was a Saleen S281E police car, which is a variant introduced between the 4th and 5th generations of the Ford Mustang.
