    I can't wait to see Airaschnid's alt mode!

    oh...we did see it?....

    ...she's transformed?!

    I thought she was just holding her 'human' legs together when she was up on her spider legs.

    ...that's weird

    I like the character she really cool, and unlike most of the cons has some back story. This is great!...just....she's a transformer shouldn't she transform a little more.

    I think it's like those transmetal vehicle modes. Not real alt modes, but more like a 'halfway mode'. So she still could turn into the helicopter many people seem to want.

    I'm just going to assume, untill we see the character again, that maybe because she only just got to earth, she hasn't scanned an official alt-mode yet.(We didn't get to see Wheeljack transform either.) She's going to kind of have to, now that she's stuck here.

    I'm still holding out hope for the helicopter theory.

    I don't think we've seen her alt-mode yet. Her bringing up her legs and walking on her spider legs just seems to be a faster way for her to get around, and her drilling threw the ground like that just looked like an ability of hers...or something.

    Chances are she either doesn't have a fully fledged alt-mode, or we just haven't seen it yet (my money is on the latter of the two).

    well, on her shoulders it did look to me she had some glassy-looking sections. so in Prime it doesn't seem to require a "Multiple personality disorder" to have more than one alt-mode.

    I think, like Wheeljack, we just didn't get to see it yet.

    Speak of alt modes in that episode, I was kinda disappointed that the robot's had the same robot modes on Cybertron instead of Cybertronian robot mode, but the show has been consistent with that (Skyquake and Wheeljack also had robot modes with obvious earth part design)

    God I hope so. I would like to be proven wrong.

    This is the first I heard of a helicopter. That would be cool but unfitting in my option.

    It would be cool to see a driller-alt-mode. That would also not be fitting; But would be something different eh?

    The things on her shoulders reminded me of ROTF Mindwipe´s altmode..

    probably not it, since even with mass shifting, it´s still a bit unbelievable for a jet robot to be the same size as a bike robot :lol

    I think she's a bit small for a helicopter personally, but then again this show has welcomed Mass-shifting back with open arms.

    She's about as tall as Arcee is, and Arcee shrinks down into a bike... maybe Airachnid expands into a Helicopter? If she were a helicopter you'd think she'd be huge.

    I think the drill thing was more of an ability then an alt-mode.

    I think the idea of a spider-copter is rather inspired, myself.

    I think a helicoptor mode would be awesome. The spider legs could fold up into rotors, her legs into the back part, and her chest and robot arms into the cockpit. That might not be feasible for the toy, but in the show it would be pretty cool to see.

    You already answered your own question: Mass-shifting ahoy cap'n.

    I concur. Helps that my favourite Crossovers figure is the Spiderman-helicopter.
