In the show, her helicopter blades become the spider legs. There are 4 of them. The toy only has 3 blades, and they are solid. Meaning they can't transform into legs.

I'm sure they can give us something resembling Airachnid's spider-mode.
Not really. Mixmaster's battle mode is nothing more than "push him over" and Ransack's battle mode is nothing more than "don't transform him all the way". Not the same thing as engineering extra joints into the rotors, which may or may not be able to support the weight anyway.

I'm a little suspicious on why the blades end in spider feet if the toy doesn't have a spider mode.
Furry Pride. Deal with it or GTFO.

Obviously Hasbro's way of meeting us halfway.

Looks to me like there is a hinge in the middle of each blade. Not that this would mean that the figure has a spider mode but there does appear to be some articulation there. A fan mode or a mid-TF "3rd" mode might be possible.

I don't have Mixmaster but I thought the only reason he has the spring loaded cannon was because HasTak gave him the "3rd" mode.

Thanks go out to SmokescreenGT for this awesome sig!

When I look at Mixamaster I see a Crab - but some people just see a robot hunched over with forearm shields.

Plus she's used them as melee weapons in two legged form anyway, so they're giving us that option.

Airachnid looks absolutely amazing. Ultra Magnus looks cool too. If they'd give us a Voyager-sized one, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
