    Everyone has heard of the strange trademark for "Airachnid" that Hasbro tried to secure. Anyways, this name has stirred up a lot of speculation, but I've never gotten clear facts on what people THINK he is or would be. So, here's a poll.
    Remember, the Predacon symbol was in a seperate document, not attached to the Airachnid one. He may or may not be related to the Predacon symbol.

    The Trademark application got shot down, so unless someone asks Hasbro at a convention we'll probably never know what it was supposed to be.

    Great now i'm going to have a lot of sleepless nights just thinking about "Airachnid".


    I'm guessing new mold/repaint of new mold.

    I think it was going to be a PCC 5 pack.

    ^ Yeah I agree with these guys it probably was for a PCC. Makes sense.

    Thanks for the replies guys! Personally, I think it's just a rename for Tarantulas.

    I think it was supposed to be the baby of Silverbolt and Blackarachnia in Beast Wars III: Bigger and Beastier.

    Heheh.

    I'd guess an Insecticon repaint or something new for Prime.

    Hasbro had said PCC would have 9 2-packs and 6 5-packs, assuming this excludes repaints, we know all 6 new mold 5-packs. Only 1 new mold 2-pack would be unknown.
