Hasbro’s designers are busy reviewing the fan choices from the first phase of the poll and designing the visual look of the new TRANSFORMERS character that will be introduced into the brand’s rich lore, and will be produced as an action figure in next year’s “TRANSFORMERS Thrilling 30” anniversary line. Voting on the four new questions begins today at TRANSFORMERS.COM/vote, and fans are encouraged to vote every day until this round of polling closes on May 17th. (…more)

The video says that “The resistance begins May 2nd”, which is tomorrow, and links to the Florida theme park’s Facebook page. View the video after the break. (…more)
