USA Today announced this morning the results of the Fan-Built Combiner Poll and many fans are going to be extremely pleased by the outcome:Victorion, a new “Combiner” Transformer comprised of six different female Autobots and a result of another recent fan-built poll, is rolling out in the July comic Transformers: Combiner Hunters and debuting in toy form in the near future.
This should come as no surprise to anyone as the boards have been in an uproar these last few months over gender equality and equal representation in the franchise. Many fans have been extremely vocal in their preferences and have demanded the inclusion of more female characters in the Transformers universe and this is a monumental step in the right direction.
We all look forward to these new characters joining the likes of classics such as Menasor and Superion and what these new characters mean to the growth of the franchise.
Be sure to jump into the discussion about the importance of these characters over on our boards.
