Fan Built Bot

Fans choose new character that will be made into a new toy. Shows character sketches. Shows female type figure with jet mode. Looks like Arcee with jet wings. Samurai kind of look.

Jet looks like a herrier kind of jet with turbines in the wings.

Finally, they chose a Fembot character with a sword that is said to be a turbine tornado buster. It charges up in the sheath as the "Tornado Blade" or whatever they call it.

Theme was chosen for samurai with red and black named Windblade. Lots of details and colors on face ala kubuki kind of deco. Coming end of 2014 as a deluxe scale figure in the Generations line.

They create lore around her and are talking to IDW about comics and other things they have planned to promote the figure.
