Last week, Hasbro announced that they’d have another “Fan Built Bot” promotion where fans will be able to build an all new combiner. Voting will occur via the TRANSFORMERS brand app (formerly the official TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION app) and fans will be able to log-in and answer a round of questions to help shape the identity of the new Combiner characters. The Fan Built Combiner poll will allow fans to determine everything from the types of vehicles involved, to whether the characters will be AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS, and eventually the name of the new character.
Voting for each round will be open for one week, after which the results will be announced and a new round of voting will begin, with three total rounds of questions in all. Additionally, the world’s leading dedicated toy retailer, Toys“R”Us, will host a “bonus” question on its Twitter channel on February 18, allowing its followers and fans to join the conversation and vote on the Combiner’s special power. A full reveal of the new Fan Built Combiner is expected later this year, with the character available as a toy in 2016.
So…get to voting!
