MELBOURNE, Australia — Ford fans in Australia have been given a unique opportunity to shape Transformers history.
Over four days, fans on the Ford Australia and Ford Falcon Facebook pages cast votes to help decide the characteristics of a new Australian Ford Transformers car.
The partnership with Ford Australia was proposed by gaming company Activision ahead of the launch of their new video game, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
To kick things off, Facebook fans were asked whether it should be an Autobot or a Decepticon, with Autobot coming out with the most votes.
The fans were then faced with three other questions:
— Which model Ford Falcon should the Transformers character be (Falcon XR6 Turbo sedan, Falcon G6E Turbo sedan, Falcon XR6 Turbo Ute, or Falcon Ute Chassis Cab?
— What colour should it be: Green and Gold, Australian Flag, Ford Blue, or Black and Silver?
— What should the Ford Falcon Transformers car be called: Falconator, Falcobot, Falcatron, Falkore, Falcoboost, Falclaw or Falconry?
Facebook fans voted for FALCATRON — a Ford blue, Falcon XR6 Turbo Sedan representing the Autobots.
Following the poll, the result will be sent to High Moon Studios, the developers of video game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, who will then create a piece of concept art based on the results. It will be unveiled on August 22.
