    Interesting. Her alt mode's not for me, but the robot mode is fine. I like Breakdown and Knockout, too.

    Interesting. I don't really understand why people go to the trouble of making customs for figures Hasbro is pretty much guaranteed to do anyway. It's good for a custom with a lot of scratch-build, but I hope the real thing is a lot better.

    Sometimes you end up with a unique figure at the scale you want and you don't have to wait for release.

    But really people do it because it's fun.

    Because hasbro could make a better one, i like the idea of the detatchable spider part, but that helicopter mode is just auful. (It doesn't transform all the way)

    Doing customs like this also is a way to get attention and commisions.

    Probably for the little reason that the Prime toyline hasn't even started yet, so they aren't going to announce everything right away.

    @Kaiju:It's "OK." TFA Blackarachnia is too obviously the base and the helecopter mode his poor.


    @OP: Designing a figure from scratch is different from mashing two figures together with epoxy and painting them to match what's onscreen. Like Starfire said, Hasbro will do something better.
