    In the show, her helicopter blades become the spider legs. There are 4 of them. The toy only has 3 blades, and they are solid. Meaning they can't transform into legs.

    Not really. Mixmaster's battle mode is nothing more than "push him over" and Ransack's battle mode is nothing more than "don't transform him all the way". Not the same thing as engineering extra joints into the rotors, which may or may not be able to support the weight anyway.

    I'm a little suspicious on why the blades end in spider feet if the toy doesn't have a spider mode.

    Obviously Hasbro's way of meeting us halfway.

    Looks to me like there is a hinge in the middle of each blade. Not that this would mean that the figure has a spider mode but there does appear to be some articulation there. A fan mode or a mid-TF "3rd" mode might be possible.

    I don't have Mixmaster but I thought the only reason he has the spring loaded cannon was because HasTak gave him the "3rd" mode.

    When I look at Mixamaster I see a Crab - but some people just see a robot hunched over with forearm shields.

    Plus she's used them as melee weapons in two legged form anyway, so they're giving us that option.

    Airachnid looks absolutely amazing. Ultra Magnus looks cool too. If they'd give us a Voyager-sized one, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    You have nothing to support this claim.

    Hope that there will be the official product rather than just a 3rd party for Airachnid of Spider mode

    Why would they?! That wasn't a spider mode, it was a Yoga position! She curls her bot legs up into an "abdomen" and some "legs" fold out from her back! So didn't TURN into a Spider?! so why make a toy? easy.. They wont, the one that's coming out is 98% perfect! Yes her rotors don't fold into legs, but they DO turn into ROTOR (something vital to a helicopter) and hang off her back ala they character, so I say she's fine the way she is!

    I'm sure Dr. Wu or fakebusker83 will come up with something to add onto Airachnid's deluxe toy to make it more screen accurate.

    It's one hinge per blade. If you look at the bot mode pics, those hinges allow the blades to fold forward in bot mode. In order to have a spider mode, she'd have to have an even number of blades that can unfold to "grow" longer for the spider mode. There is no way those hinges can do that.
