    Hi everyone,

    The Transformers Collector's Club's current storyline is the Transtech universe, and the newest issue has artwork of a few characters. Transtech Blackarachnia's artwork has been uploaded for public viewing by the artist, ZeroMayhem.

    Here is a link:

    I still wish I knew whether this version is aligned as a hero or as a villain.

    She's a villian, she works for SG Alpha Trion according to her bio & the comic in the latest issue of the TFCC magazine.

    Really nicely done backstory too, I must say. I hope we get to see it in the actual comic, I want to see this other "alternate Maximal/Predacon" universe they talked about.

    A. Doesn't look remotely anything like a Bionicle set

    B. Bionicles isn't grammatically correct unless if you call Darth Vader and company Star Warses, or people Histories /Bonesii

    C. This looks nice, but doesn't really say "transtech" to me when compared to the Cheetor and Silverbolt designs we had earlier in the comic.

    Um... the movieverse was inspired by TransTech.

    Anyhow, LOVE his work. It is really good! I hope we get more of her in the comic, and god, I REALLY hope Hasbro comes out with some TransTech toys for Universe.

    It is interesting to see two different works coming out of one concept work. I'm gonna do another shameless plug here.
    Altitron came up with this about a year ago:

    I actually have to agree with this. She really isn't as alien as she could be. She looks like something from 'Cybertron.'

    And my hatred for TFCC keeps on growing. Bloody hell, why is it so freaking hard to just give us a proper Transtech story and KEEP TO THE STYLE OF THE CONCEPT ART? Cheetor and Silverbolt aren't bad, but the rest...Uuuuuurgh. Talk about missing the point by a mile.

    I agree. Don't hate them, and glad that we actually are getting some TransTech, and I like the artist who did this work, but no. This is not TransTech. This is not what it was going to be.
    Altitron did a great job at taking all the ideas of TTBA to make one full complete style and look. His is very solid and captures what TransTech is all about.

    Personally, I really don't like Transtech Silverbolt's design. I far more prefer the unused Angel Knight design from the collage art-page. The finalized design kind of reminds me of a crushed soda can.

    I don't exactly like that Transtech Blackaracnia is a villain. It's been done already, and I'm guessing that the exact same thing is going to be happening with Transtech Scavenger, who is one of my favorite designs. I like him as an old grumpy Autobot. I don't need to see any more of Nightscream either, I had more than enough of him on Beast Machines.

    I have to say though, about the fiction, that I loved Gone Too Far. It's one of my favorite Transformers stories. I'd love to have it in actual book format! :D

    You have no idea how upset I was when I saw they mangled Transtech Starscream's face.

    *SPOILER-Y POST*

    No. It's been revealed that this Alpha Trion is Shattered Glass Alpha Trion. He's pretty evil.

    All four of the Transtechs with Alpha Trion-- Blackarachnia, Nightscream, Scavenger, and (the apparently now-deceased, ironically) Immorticon are/were all bad guys.

    I think BA looks fantastic. I'd buy a toy of that on sight.

    I've never cared for any of the Transtechs. The designs, that is. Not critiquing the art.

    Yeah, Hasbro needs to make this into a toy. But change the purple to blue like it's supposed to be. The purple makes it look a little too much like Animated.
