Nice debut clip. Maybe the writers will put in some connection to Drift, since they're both Japanese-styled warrior 'bots.

Well I'm not surprised at all that Windblade is showing up here since Hasbro said that she was going to show up every where.






I dread about how the Bay movies are going to handle her.

Well, looks like she just stepped outside of the comics in design, voice wasn't exactly what I imagined, pictured something softer and a little more Tara Strong-esqe (not being sexist, but that's who I imagine voicing her).

That Decepticon also looks intriguing, I guess it's a puma inspired one? Hard to tell, just going by the colors, tail, and jumping strength (plus referring to him as "kitty".

Why do they need to be connected?

I wonder if we'll be getting an RiD (2015) style figure of Windblade or just a repaint.

Word is a Legion class toy is in the works.

I did see five Deluxe Windblades on display at my local TRU. I wonder if word of this announcement went out to them?

Man, this article revealed SO MUCH news!
  • It showed us a clip of Windblade from RID
  • It told us Kristy Wu is voicing her
  • It revealed the name and gender of the Fan-Built Combiner
  • It revealed the existence of a new comic called "Combiner Hunters"
  • It gave us a clip of this Saturday's Rescue Bots episode featuring Blurr and Salvage
  • And it revealed a female Rescue Bot to come in season 4!

As for Windblade herself, her design and deco are so similar to her Takara Transformers: Legends toy that I wonder if Hasbro would even bother making a new mold for her as a Warrior.

Actually we already knew about that one, as we pointed out in the other thread.


I'm so hype about Windblade appearing in the show. Is this a season 2 episode or have those who watched the full run just kept their lips sealed about her appearing in season 1?

Probably will re release the figure in new packaging sine it seems that the Generations Windblade is hard to come by.




Then again any generations Transformer is hard to come by here in Canada.

She has not appeared in any of the 14 episodes that have aired outside the U.S. Season 1 should have 26 episodes, so who knows if she'll show up this in season or the next.

Though, it is peculiar that USA Today would make this article at this current time for an episode that won't air in the U.S. until several months from now. Cartoon Network has only aired the first 5 episodes so far.

I had no idea Windblade was going to be in the new toon.


That's pretty neat.

Well, there are 12 more episodes to go before the end of this season, so it's entirely possible she'll show up this season. Besides, if there's a clip ready, it's possible the episode is in the final touch-up phase. :CON:

And yet five of them mysteriously turned up in my local TRU this week. Hmmm...

It is the spitting image of her Generations toy, but that toy is also way more complex than any figure in the RID line, which goes against the simplified transformations Hasbro is trying to do with that line.

I heard there was a listing for either a Legion (legends) or a one step figure of Windblade.
