A little while ago, there was a fan poll held by Hasbro to create a brand-new Transformers character, which would be released as a toy in the 30th Anniversary line. They had several elements to vote on via multiple-choice questions, like faction, vehicle mode, primary weapon, dominant personality trait.. and gender. 
And against all my prejudices, the fandom has decided that they wanted a female Transformer. To be precise, a valiant Autobot jet who wields swords. 

The design was revealed a while ago, and now IDW has shown a sneak peak of a single-issue comic that will introduce her into fiction, as well. The writer is Mairghread Scott and the artist is Sarah Stone, who thus makes her professional debut on Transformers comics. 

So there will be a comic about a female Transformer, written by a woman and drawn by a woman. This kind of thing makes me a little happy.
