Meet Windblade, Hasbro's lethal new lady Transformer chosen by fans

With her bold, kabuki-style warpaint, Windblade is gearing up for battle with potent girl power and a devastating Tornado Blade to chop down Decepticons like dandelions. 

Created by popular demand of fans on the official Hasbro website, Windblade will be featured in a new 2014 Generations toy line and deluxe IDW comics mini-series written by the creative team of Mairghread Scott and Sarah Stone - the first all-female lineup to work on the franchise.  This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Transformers toy empire and cartoon show, and the ranks are ripe with new recruits.  

This fierce femme-bot transforms into a raging VTOL jet.  Although her main characteristics were voted on by fans, the final color scheme and cyber-accessories were ultimately chosen by a design team at Hasbro's Rhode Island headquarters.

So, are you wild about Windblade, or hoping to recast your vote?
