Those pesky Transformers get everywhere

In the past couple of weeks, there's been a surge in sightings of mysterious robots in cities and famous landmarks around the world, including Tokyo, Berlin, Rome, and Barcelona. People from across the globe have been posting videos and photos of these sightings on sites.

Check out the Tokyo sighting:

Barcelona sighting:

A number of more subtle sightings have been spotted in Sydney (above), Perth and even Machu Pichu (zoom into the right of the smaller peak in the middle) .

The most recent sightings have been in France and the UK. In France two model-airplane-enthusiasts watched their airplane crash land, and transform into a robot.

In the UK, there was a similar incident involving a scooter turning into a robot-type creature.

These robot sightings have so far been tracked by two conspiracy blogs run by Robo-Warrier and Leo Ponce de Leon Spitz.

I think this is a cracking viral campaign for the new Transformers film. Have you spotted any more?

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is out in the UK tomorrow and in the USA on the 24th.
