    I could never quite pull the trigger on Aranea, it just seemed a little too expensive for my taste, but I really enjoyed the design and idea. So ended up just bashing something similar. She has pieces from Animated Black Arachnia, FE Arcee, PRID Arcee. I've still got some stuff to do before I paint it, I'm going to attach Ani BA's head and then her arm spikes on to these arms to make them look more like spider legs in spider mode.

    Very nice.

    Fakebusker's working on a kit to add an Airachnid head and tendrils. At the very least the head could be a nice addition.

    ...I actually wasn't aware. That looks super cool, though, and since I now have a PRID Arcee sans forearms, I'll probably pick it up once it's finalized.

    I think with the amount of craft put in here it will look much better than my rendition :) 
    Those extra arms do a lot to up the creep factor. I love it!

    Ha, thanks. :) 

    ???

    Also I fixed the repeated image in the OP, not sure how I missed that. I like her with two hands on her hips, makes her looks sassy. :p

    This is pretty friggin' cool. One little complaint, though: the spider legs in bike mode are a little ungainly and "whoops, forgot a step"-ish. Maybe if they could fold down along the sides? They'd kinda look like exhaust pipes, or BH Arcee's side "web" plates, if this makes any sense. Just a little thought, don't have to take it into account.

    This thing is great! Do you have a tutorial on this by chance?

    Also, do you have a combination mode for this. Where she is half spider, half person. If that makes sense. The way she normally walks around on the hind spider legs but you see her head.

    THAT IS AWESOME!

    The "windshield-as-bug-face" thing is particularly brilliant, with the mandibles REALLY selling it.

    Yeah, I like this significantly more that Areana, and I thought that design was slick.
