    "They are Among us" is the name of a new TF contest open to all Mexican residents (Oh god that feels so good!)

    TRANSFORMERS HASBRO &ndash; Concursos y premios &ndash; Catálogo de juguetes

    I was watching CN Latinamerica earlier today when i saw a weird commercial, recorded as a home video, about some kids doing things on their living room, when suddenly they heard some crazy sounds and went to investigate. The sound was the classic transformation sound and something transformed in another room, then broke the window and escape. The style of the video was very similar to those that appeared on the Sector 7 website last year (remember the Grimlock vs Constructicons or Bumblebee walking?). I'm gonna try to record and upload the video on the next days


    After that, it was revealed that its a contest exclusive for Mexico and apparently, a big push for TF Animated!


    From what i read on the website, there´s two contests right now:

    One is "Create your Transformer", basically you get random parts from each animated TF and mix them to create any kind of robot, give him a name and also abilities. Then, all you need to do is wait for enough votes to win! they even encourage you to ask all your friends to vote

    The 2nd contest is more interesting and requires more input. Basically you need to take some kind of proof that TFs are among us, by taking a photo or a video, from any of the following (Replicas, toys or any kind of TF) and avoid any kind of photo manipulation (like photoshop)

    Apparently, for the 3 Mexico main cities (Mexico City, Guadalajara & Monterrey) there will be some kind of special event or something with some kind of Replicas, announced on the city so all participants living on any of these cities, can take his photo there (Lucky me :D )

    For those that cant get to these cities, they can take pics of them with TFs or anything and upload them to the website to try to win


    As for the prizes:

    They are Among us:
    1st: $30,000 Pesos (like $2,500 USD) plus $5000 pesos ($450 usd) worth of Animated items
    2st: for the next 5 winners, $3000 pesos ($250 usd) worth of Animated items
    3st: for the next 10 winners, $1500 pesos ($1000 usd) worth of Animated items


    Create your TF:
    1st: A Giant Replica of a TF, plus $5000 pesos worth of Animated items
    2st: for the next 5 winners, $3000 pesos worth of Animated items
    3st: for the next 10 winners, $1500 pesos worth of Animated items


    Rules, they are pretty much the same for any contest, no Hasbro employees can enter, open to all Mexican residents (take that USies with their cool and constant contests!), no age limit, etc


    Well, for now i need to wait until the website reveals the location of the Props for my city (I will take a lot of pics of course) and enter in the next couple of weeks :D 


    EDIT: I uploaded the commercial

    You know the economy here is bad when Mexico is having contest like these and the US isn't.
