Meet Windblade, Hasbro's new female addition to the Transformers universe. Windblade was designed as the result of a fan poll in which people got to vote for a new Transformer's main characteristics. Apparently one of the winning characteristics was 'lady parts'. You know I love those things. She will transform into a VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) jet and make the Decepticons jealous their whole organization is practically one giant metal sausage party.
For those who don't know, this is cool since there have been very few female robots, the most popular being Arcee.
Windblade will get a toy as well as her own comics miniseries as part of her launch. Her comic will be written by Mairghread Scott, who has written several Transformers comics, and drawn by Sarah Stone, who is a new comer to the franchise. This is also the first time that a Transfomers book will have an all-female creative team!
Megatron: Dammit, this party's lame -- where are all the chicks?
Starscream: There aren't any, sir.
Megatron: You know what to do.
Starscream: Do I have to?
Megatron: PUT ON THE DRESS.
Thanks to PYY, who agrees it's high time for a transgender Transformer already. Don't act like it doesn't make perfect sense.
