Just because they could – Activision turns landmarks into Transformers

In other news, Battersea Power Station has morphed into an Autobot. Wait, what? 

Activision has enlisted the skills of a certified Hasbro artist to transform famous landmarks, ranging from the Blackpool Tower to the Gateshead Millenium Bridge, into Autobots from the Transformers universe. Our personal favourite is the Battersea Power Station Bot (above), which has transformed the hulking eyesore into a twin-column-toting behemoth that'd give the nearby dogs home kittens.

The purpose of this much-appreciated building metamorphosis is to promote the release of Activision’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon game, which has recently launched on all major consoles. Now excuse us while we get a hold of the artist – Stuff Towers could certainly do with a shiny makeover of its own.

For a chance to win an Xbox 360 and a copy of the game, head to our competitions page and feel free to flip over the next few pages to take a look at the rest of the transformations.
