Transformers Prime Airachnid Mod - WIP

Hi, just to share what I've done to my Airachnid.
I replaced the arms with FE Arcee's and added double ball joint neck.
Though the alternate mode still kinda sucks but the figure can be transformed between modes without need of dismantle anything.

I am still looking out for something to cover the upper/lower arms wishing that it would look less hideous in alternate mode.

Please feel free to give your suggestions and comments, thank you!

Sorry for the blurry pictures.

I think you may have found the winning solution. Or at least the best one yet.

I think the alt mode looks okay.

Looks a lot better than the stock figure that was put out. Great work.

Now all you have to do is do something with those heli blade/ spider leg wannabe's and it's golden! Well, black but you get the point!

Add some paint and it'll be black with golden details

I might try this. I have an FE arcee that's always chilling in vehicle mode anyways. I'd have to remove the paint I added, though.

I'm loving how the arms fold up in her alt mode so far, even without panels to cover them up, though I'm not really a fan of the idea of cannibalizing a first edition figure that you'd have to hunt down online.

That's a MAJOR improvement!

I like how the arms are visable in alt mode yet they don't glare out horribly!

Great job!

The arms are okay, but seem way too long.
"It is only logical, as I gaze upon the spark of this femme-bot, that I guide my dexterous manipulator and apply additional servos to the task of making it stronger, so that she may comprehend a femme-bot's expected role. Logic dictates."

They're too long in robot mode I think. And you need to find a way to get the panels on the arms. It looks naked without them.
