Fall of Cybertron Torque - New Ford Based Transformer Design

Anyone remember Falcatron? The Australian fan decided Ford based Transformer? Well, Ford is at it again with another character created using fan influence. Fans got to vote on whether this character would be Autobot, Decepticon, what kind of alternate mode he would have and more. This time, meet Torque, (not to be confused with our very own 2005 Board member) who has been debuted on Motorauthority.com. The website has the following to say on this new design:

This time the fans chose the Ranger, but in its range-topping Wildtrak trim. This model packs a 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbodiesel thatís rated at 197 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque.

Torqueís bright orange finish is available on the Ranger Wildtrak, though thatís about all he has in common with the actual production model.

Ford has said it plans to use Torque in some promotional materials, just like it is doing with Falcatron. However, donít hold your breath waiting to see either in Transformers 4--they were created just for Fordís own promotional use.

Same here lol.

Seriously, someone get Torque on the forum he needs to see this.

Awful. There's no way that robot turns into that vehicle. Looks like they just slapped the chest and wheels on an existing robot design and called it a day.

Only on the same way this looks "cool".
Autobot Burnout
Huh, I didn't know Cybertron had Ford Dealerships during the great war.

So...how do those front wheels end up next to the rear wheels on the legs?

The same way any TF alt mode that's made for access by humans gains a full interior, I'm guessing. Sci-fi physics.
Torque
WOAH words... words cannot describe...

i may need a new sig lol

Hot Shot.

My first reaction.
orangeitis
On a different note, I love the orange.
Torque
This gives me hope Torque, in any capacity, could show up in a show, or even better-get a toy!

Personally, I like the K-class Torque better than this photoshop knockoff of the real deal.
Torque
K-Class Torque was pretty damn awesome. Shame bout him. Still, Any character named Torque us bound to be awesome ^_^


love the design-if only the leg thing was possible. Wonder what it would cost to get this made at voyager size, accurate transformation and all lol.

And that orange is b-e-a-utiful ^_^
guard convoy
now i wonder, if this and that other design will be made into DLC to put in the game, cause surely they wouldn't design these just to not use them
Torque
pleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease
HeroicC300
I feel it would look better if it wasn't so obviously Magnus' design photoshopped.

Though the fact that one fan somehow now has TWO characters with his name is surprising.

Think TFWiki needs three pages for the disambig?
Torque
There's also the original Torque, a small blue truck minicon. Just saying.

Though admittedly, I had my mind blown when K-Class Torque came out, and was almost as excited to see this. I occasionally wonder if the fact that my name is so unused, combined with the fact that I'm fairly active on the boards, has something to do with the name being brought to their attention to be used. Perhaps its all just wishful thinking or coincidence, but I seriously wonder... Wonder who I could ask about that lol

they said the weren't adding the two Ford designs in. but a chest/alt mode would be nice
Erland
So this is just a mock up made strictly for Ford advertising? This is not a real transformer?

Faux-kibble. The other pair are hidden somewhere in the shoulders/arms/chest

To be completely honest, that happens the big lug's going on my shelf pronto. XD
G1Prowl
Toy, please.
Snake_eyes1975
That's a DAMN nice looking truck...the bot is nice..kick ass job! Not entirely impossible Tfmation. I really dig that.
Walktehdinosaur
As if HMS would add this to the game, that would require added effort (which is a big no-no).
Driftx3
Aw man! I was hoping this was boardmember Torque.
Hippie Trooper
This is what I had hoped movie Ironhide would've looked like.
Later
Jerrymiru
I'd buy the toy if they did one to be honest.
Deefuzz
Everyone is talking toys.

Heck I wish I could buy a production model truck here that looks exactly like that! And I'm not even a truck guy, but I would totally become one for Torque!
Prime Jetscream
These designs are pretty cool, but cheap. This is just a modified Magnus.
Falcatron has Sideswipe's shoulders (modified, though) and Hound's legs. :/

That same way Cars transform into robots

Toy. Now.

Hasbro needs to get around to trademarking Autovolt as a real name and not just the Takara counterpart to Crosswise.
