Last year, Transformers fans had the opportunity to help create a brand new Transformer character and the best they could come up with was a Japanese-themed female robot that turned into a jet.
So... not really a shining moment in Transfandom but at least it's not Optimus Prime riding Grimlock, right?
Anyway, this new Transformer, Windblade, will take center stage in the IDW mini-series, Transformers: Windblade. This series will focus on Cybertron in the aftermath of the Dark Cybertron crossover (which is going on RIGHT NOW in IDW's two Transformers ongoings) and, more importantly, will allow our brand new Transformer (still Windblade) to meet the residents still living there. Like Starscream and Blurr.
Over at The Mary Sue, Transformers Windblade writer, Mairghread Scott, gives us a sense of what we should expect in the series and how she's going to make a female version of Drift into an actual interesting character instead of, well, Drift. Not only does she instill a sense of confidence in the series but we're also treated to some character sketches by Transformers: Windblade illustrator, Sarah Stone.
Which look pretty awesome.
Go check out The Mary Sue for the interview, pick up Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #26 (on shelves this week!) for Windblade's first appearance, and look below to see a Starscream that actually looks like Starscream instead of Generic Decepticon #429 now appearing in Dark Cybertron.
