Australians design “Falcatron” for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Game developer releases concept image of a Ford Falcon based Transformer to commemorate game’s release

After letting the public vote on what they feel would be an Australian themed Transformer, the results have come in and “Falcatron” has been revealed

Thousands of fans on the Ford Australia and Ford Falcon Facebook pages voted on every aspect of the Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo based Transformer.

The Transformer was then brought to life by the design team at High Moon Studios, the developers responsible for the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron video game.

The classic ‘Ford Blue’ was chosen by fans, and the vehicle was deemed to be a valiant Autobot instead of an evil Decepticon.

No doubt a nod to local recognition of the vehicle’s iconic name, fans decided to name the Autobot “Falcatron.”

High Moon Studios’ art department, led by Jim Daly, used the results of the poll to put together a sample piece of concept art.

At this point in time, only the concept art has been released by High Moon Studios to commemorate the release of the game.

No indication has been made by either the studio or publisher Activision on whether the design will be turned into a digital model and released as free or paid DLC for the game.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
