Hasbro's 'Fan Built Bot Poll' has led to the creation of new Transformer Windblade.

Announced at the San Diego Comic-Con, the poll had asked fans to vote on a series of character elements including faction, personality and vehicle mode.

The winning elements have resulted in Windblade, a female Autobot jet.

The new Transformer will now feature in future IDW comics and is available to feature in other ventures by the Transformers brand.

Windblade will also form part of the Thrilling 30 line, a series of Transformers created to celebrate the brand's 30th Anniversary. The figure will be No. 30 in the line and is expected to land on shelves in late 2014.
