    In RotF Arcee and Elita-One were sisters.

    In Animated Elita-One becomes Blackarachnia after being attacking by alien spiders.

    In Transformers Prime Arcee and Airachnid have very similar head designs. Airachnid has said that she's some how related to the Insecticons (which is actually scientifically inaccurate because spiders are not insects.) which hints that maybe Airachnid has similar origins to Animated Blackarachnia.

    So I was thinking that it's possible we could get a repaint of Arcee as Elita-One to turn into a repaint of Airachnid as Blackarachnia.

    Yeah I'm basically pulling a theory for a possible new character out of my aft but... COMMENCE DISCUSSION!

    Sorry, but no.

    Airachnid is just a spider robot, nothing more. If she was previously an Autobot the that would just show off some more uncreative backstory from the writers.

    No, thank you. We already saw the half-assed attempt at bringing in Animated's Starscream clone sublot, we don't need to see the butchered, contrived counterpart to Animated Blackarachnia.

    I never said she was an Autobot. I just said that she had similar origins meaning that her spider-like appearance and reference to how she was controlling the Inseticons is kind of implying that she was attacked by alien spiders just like animated Elita-One.

    She could potentially infect other characters turning them into weird spider creatures as well which is where Elita-One/Blackarachnia would come in as a separate character. I was in no way implying that Airachnid herself was originally Elita-One. She's way too evil to have ever been an Autobot. I mean BW and Animated Blackarachnia were evil too but they actually had redeemable qualities, they weren't cold blooded killers who kill just for the fun of killing like Airachnid is.

    Or to put it simply when I said similar origins I mean origins as to how she became a spider robot not as to how she became a Decepticon.

    The reason for Airachnid communicating with Insecticons will most likely have something to do with the fact that Shockwave created them in the Aligned continuity and I honestly like that much better than a robot getting bitten by a spider and going all Peter Parker on us.

    besides she is not a robot that turns into a spider, she turns into a helicopter, her spider-part is part of her robot mode like how ROTF Megatron had a crab claw but wasn't actualy a crab-former.

    ^This. Confusing Prime/Animated continuity is easy to do with so much carryover from the Animated storyline into Prime, but I don't see any correlation in this case between Elita-1 and Airachnid, so no go.

    Technically she has two robot modes one of which is very much like a spider. Plus Airachnid is a play on words. She's an aerial vehicle and an arachnid.

    Anyway who ever said that Blackarachnia had to literally be a spider? Why can't she be a helicopter with a spider legs robot mode?

    And there's nothing in fiction linking Prime to whatever it is your talking about so until that origin actually shows up in Prime it didn't happen in Prime.

    This. But I wouldn´t mind if they told the history about Shockwave´s experiment (Dinobots, insecticons, Airachnid...) in flashbacks, like they did with Orion and Megatronus.

    what I think you mean by "related" is that they have organic alt modes that don't resemble things on Earth. think Beast Wars.

    Like the others said no.

    It's too much of a rip off from Animated and Prime doens't want to go to that route despite the flaws the show has at the moment.
