    Got her today with Animated Ratchet!

    Super nice, articulated, and Spidery!

    Grapnel attaches to her abdomen so she can hang like a real spider!

    [​IMG]

    Yes, the grapnel claw is strong enough to hold her up, even if you just clamp it onto something. Notice how the claw isn't even all the way around the bar and still holds her up:

    Transformation involves a lot of twisty bit, but fun. I especially love how her spider mandibles define/form her robot hips. It's a neat little tough. Otherwise she looks anorexic:

    Grapnel can go on either hand, retracts at the push of a button. Also, the spider
    legs behind her head have a joint in them, so they CAN flip forward over her shoulders to attack like in the cartoon. Not far, but they can.

    [​IMG]

    The grapnel can also store on her back, facing either up or down. Up works if you want her hanging in robot mode, I prefer down for posing:

    A very nice figure, and a welcome addition to the animated line-up!! I'm going to try and get a video up later this evening.

    She's definetly one I plan to get. Might even have a little fun hanging her around the house, lol. She'll actually make for a nice decoration during Halloween.

    Make sure no one has a flashback and chop her up with an ax.

    I soooo f***ing envy you man! You got an action fig of Blackarachnia. Man, I wish they show TF animated series here in my country and also sell those toys as well. I would do anything to purchase a BA fig. She's so seksi! *drools*

    I'm curious man, just how much money have you already spent on all these toys?

    God, $100 bucks is too much, but man look at that collection...

    I might be tempted to get her. The grapnel gimmick is what I think is the most cool part of the figure, especially since it supports BA's weight.

    I was never a fan of Beast Wars and as a result I thought I would be able to resist buying her. It seems that I shall now be a further £10 out of pocket. Animated is going to cost me a hell of a lot. I haven't seen any I wouldn't want to buy of the Deluxe, Voyager and Leader variety. Tarnations.
