LOS ANGELES: A team of six new female Transformers will be unveiled by Hasbro in the comic series "Transformers: Combiner Hunters" this July. 

The toy versions of the group will be released post the comic series, reported the Verge. 

The new group, which fuse to form the "Combiner" Transformer Victorion, is the result of a recent poll, and reflects the series diverse fanbase. 

"Our female fans have demanded to be part of the story," Sarah Carroll, senior brand manager for Transformers at Hasbro said. 

"To have them be represented as well is something that's only natural." 

Female Transformers have existed since the series launched in the 1980s - with characters like Solus Prime taking important roles in the series' mythology - but have not achieved the same level of prominence as core characters like Optimus Prime and Megatron. 

That changed last year with the introduction of WindBlade, a fan-built female Transformer who went on to earn her own comic.
