    This may not last more than a couple of minutes but I'm going to try anyway. I've made an appreciation thread for one of the most awesome villains in TFP. Airachnid.

    She's a creepy hunter, a merciless torturer and has the highest kill count. She can hold her own in most fights and when that isn't enough, she can use cleverly placed traps to take down her victims.

    Anyone who likes an effective villain come and share your love for the most effective TF one in Prime.

    After last week, expect rage. A lot of rage.

    She hasn't fully won me over yet, but I do like that she transforms into a helicopter. I think I would have prefered her to be more helicopter than arachnid, as the arachnid features don't add to her other than making her look like a Blackarachnia clone.

    Totally picking up the figure, though. Any fembots is good by me!

    Yep. I am. I honestly don't know why after so long, I was the only one who seemed to have given up on Breakdown. He was developed for a couple of episode, halfway through the series, than just turned into a generic bruiser. After so long with the generic bruiser, I just lost hope.

    I guess it's ironic that my lack of hope in this series allowed me to hate a character so when they killed him, I became happy while everyone else raged.

    I don't understand what's with all the Airachnid-hate is about.

    She's not the most awsome villain in Transformers history, but she's not all that repulsive, is she?

    She is a evil character, a villain, so she's not meant to be good or nice, and like most Decepticons, and the spider-based transformers such as Blackarachnia and Tarantulas from Beast Wars, she is treacherous. But like them, she's also pretty good at what she does, and a capable fighter.

    I definitely like her better than Breakdown.

    Hot, poisonous, and deadly.

    But seriously. I could not be more excited for her deluxe toy

    I think she's hot.



    Seriously though, I'd mainly just like to hear her speak a little more. I mean yeah, I get that she's not gonna have Optimus Prime level monologues, but I think she's a rather interesting character with a rather interesting potential on the mic, and that's something I think many of us would enjoy.

    We need more fembots introduced in the Prime continuity.


    And Strika better not be one of the first one's.

    The fact that we hate her should be proof enough she's a good villain. I hate her in the same way that I hate Lockdown. They're both total bastards.

    Airachnid needs a pair of heels. One's that will rival those of Starscream's.

    I really like Airachnid. She's a great villain, and she works the role well; considering how much everyone hates her, she must be being written very effectively. Plus she has a cool design, and Gina Torres does a spectacular job with her voicework.

    Airachnid is the most important character in TFP right now. Only she has the power to make IT happen.
