As reported by USA Today, Hasbro’s “Fan Built Combiner” poll results are in.

The new combiner? Victorion. That’s an awesome name in and of itself, for me invoking the visions of Brave Robo heroes.

The best part?  The combiner itself is female, and made of 6 female transformers characters.  This is huge.  Female characters were incredibly under-represented in the original G1 cartoon, and one of the only regular female cast members, “Arcee” who was introduced in Transformers: The Movie, was only finally represented by a toy THIS YEAR.  29 years later.

So to have something as cool as a combining team be made of female characters, is fantastic.  Even more so if this means six NEW characters, which means a 6 character up-count for canon female characters in the franchise.

Hopefully Hasbro really follows through with this.  No cut corners on the toys (Combiner Wars figures have been spectacular so far) fun new designs, and good availability for these figure in all of their markets.


There’s still a chance this could be fucked over, though.  Hasbro is still having IDW make the comic books to promote their toys.  IDW, with the exception of a few people they brought on specifically for some female-character oriented books, is comprised of psychotic, classless, shock-jock dude-bros and unless Hasbro puts a tight leash on those fucking idiots, chances are that within the first couple of issues of the comic that this new female combiner is introduced in, either a couple of members of the team are going to be permanently ruined or killed off in stupid ways, or the entire combiner will be killed off.  Because that’s how those talent-less hacks roll at IDW.


I’m choosing to remain optimistic for the toys though, I expect great things, Hasbro.  Great things!

Kuma-Oh Battle Damaged Edition by adekii
Kuma-Oh Battle Damaged Edition
A stream commission by :iconthatweirdguyjosh: - seriously, I wouldn't be able to afford so many if it weren't for the fact that these colored commissions are only 14 bucks!

He's done a fantastic job of showing Kuma-Oh mid battle!  Seems her costume is taking a lot of damage in this fight, maybe she's gotten in over her head... or maybe she's drawing the enemy into a trap?  We'll find out next time!
