    Best I could do to flub it...

    Bend her legs back, fold her coat tails forward to create a tripod to support her, then let the propellers hang loosely on her back.

    Kinda pathetic, but so is the toy.

    I just made a comment in another tread commenting on Airachnid's shitty transformation.

    Shit, people have this wave already?


    Also, as much as I'd like to rep this, it just doesn't work. To make anything convincing, we're really gonna need to outsource some spider legs of our own, especially if want them to be big enough too look alive. Then since she'll be tall enough that way, her legs (robot legs) can just be placed together like you have em, or even pointed down a little more, depending on how they look with what legs.

    For shame.

    I'm not too concerned about the spider mode. Bot and copter mode will work fine for me.

    Good attempt but still weak.

    Hopefully a third party company will make her proper legs to have her don her show accruate and better looking spider mode.

    And while they're at it maybe they can find a way to make better arms for her too.

    I wont have a problem swapping the hands. I have this really sweet mecha figure that came with a few sets of creepy robot hands, and if nothing else I'll just steal a couple of those. The spider legs though, no idea what I'll do, but I'm sure people will figure something out. :)

    My only real concern is the fact that the OP actually has the toy.

    My sentiments exactly. I still haven't seen Hotshot or Knockout in the wild, let alone Vehicons.

    Why no review of the figure since you have it?

    I share the consensus of "How in the hell did you get that already?"

    I've yet to see a Ratchet FFS >.>

    The words "better than nothing" come to mind.

    (regarding spidery mode, not the toy itself.)

    Too lazy to do reviews, but the tldr version is that it's bad. Everything gets in the way of her articulation so she can't be posed much. Balance is off due to her giant hunchback.

    Getting 3rd party spider legs won't fix the biggest fundamental issue of this being a terrible piece of engineering.

    I'm more curious about how you got the toy/if the wave is out than that crappy spider mode.

    With third party legs it might work. She also needs at least four of them rather than three.

    I have tried to see the pros of this figure, but I can't help but agree here.
