    I think she should have been a scorpion to let everyone know that spiders aren't the only arachnids

    She must be one of those "if it's intimidating I don't care" kind of bots.

    She never had an alt mode in that ep. It was just an alternate robot mode. Many suspect that her name and design may mean she becomes a helicopter.

    And no, she should not be a spider.

    We don't know. She never transformed.

    At Brainchild: Her robot legs combined, her upper body stayed the same, and she walked on six spider-like legs.

    I'll trust you then.

    Yeah, that doesn't sound like an alt-mode to me.

    That wasn't her vehicle mode, though, it was just an alteration of her robot mode.

    However she has panels, windows and other bits on her that heavily imply she turns into a kind of vehicle.

    I don't get why everyone's calling her spider-leg form her alt. mode.

    That was more of an attack mode. A "Predator" mode, if you will.

    Her drill mode was her alternate mode. In this instance, anyway.

    That's as much an alt mode as ROTF Rampage's centaur mode is.

    That was also a variation of her robot mode, in fact even less so.

    Barely, it's sort of obstructed by her spinning legs. And it's spinning as well, but you can clearly see her abdomen and torso outlined.

    I sorta expected it to be her robot mode just so it could make her stand out a bit more from the other Transformers (who are all humanoid). But seeing as how she spends most of her time in that mode, maybe her "regular" mode is more for show, but she reveals her true colors as the spider. I'll admit, she looked kinda scary when she transformed from "humanoid" to "spider" robot mode - sorta like a werewolf transformation.

    It does have its advantages, though. She can climb with ease, and it kinda feels more like a "stalker" mode, really (and the image of a spider is a good example of a stalker predator) - she could creep around without making much noise.

    I'm sure she'll scan a vehicle eventually, most likely one with flight (either a jet, or like a lot of people are saying, a helicopter, with her spider legs becoming the rotors) - it'd explain why she's called Airachnid. Plus, it'd be cool to see a female helicopter for once in Transformers. :D

    I am withholding judgement till we actually see if she even has an altmode, or if she has to scan one or whatever happens.

    She's probably like Wheeljack. She has an alternate form designed, but has yet to scan one in the show.
