    Airachnid, the spider-copter Decepticon from PRIME, has advantages that would make her a worthy adition to a TFilm:
    - a female Decepticon would be something new to the Movieverse

    - she would present a major Autobot threat, stringing up her foes and having her arachnid way with them (like what Shelob does in LOTR)

    - she’s a wall-crawler and web-slinger; such action is mostly exclusive to the SPIDER-MAN films, and would be used to great effect in a TFilm.

    To be honest I’d rather see her in her Japanese version (a horny spider-woman) rather than her American version (a sinister bounty hunter/femme-fatale). I also think she needs a different alternate mode: a helicopter alt mode is over-used, maybe make her an automobile like some early DOTM concept art featured.

    Maybe... Depends what TF4's plot is and how she'd fit into it.

    As long she is voiced by Tommy Wiseau(seeing on how they love to fuck the charaters up.) I would be okay with her in the films.

    I feel the Stunticons really deserve a shot, they're cars (should be American muscle, imho), one's a terrorist (imagine the Baysplosions), and the car vs car action that could ensue. Remember Bee and Sideswipe in DotM on the freeway? Imagine that, but with a bunch of Carcepticons.

    If they can do her right, I'd like to see her in TF4. I liked her character in a few episodes of TFP, but am a bit disappointed with how she basically turned into a female Starscream later on. Maybe they can give her a horror movie aspect like how she collects endangered species and whatnot. Oh and she transforms into a helicopter. Bay would be drooling at the mouth if he knew about her.

    No thanks. Airachnid is one of my least favorite characters. She's just...not interesting.

    I just don't see the films doing her as more than Airachnid in name only. She would show up, do one cool thing and then spend the rest of the film waiting to die. Most likely a death by the humans in some way.

    Transformers Prime had as more than just something to kill and the writers were even smart enough to find a way to take her out without killing her off. The movie Decepticons really aren't hitting on enough to have Transformers Prime Decepticons show up and get killed.

    I'm not overly fond of her character, so I'd have to say no.

    Out of all characters of TFP, you pick the worst-written to appear in a TF movie? Why?

    At her best she's a generic serial killer [basically a female DOTM-Laserbeak with half of the charisma], at her worst she's a Villanous Mary Sue who will wreck all plot without batting an eye.

    I say she should be on TF4.....Over my dead, rotten corpse.
