Third part group Perfect Effect has updated their website with new colored prototype photos of the Motobot Aranea. This new transforming motorcycle robot, based on various female spider Transformers characters, is an extensive retool of the first Motobot, RC.

Besides the substantial bodywork, Aranea comes with a variety melee weaponry, and based on one blurred photo, a detachable spider drone!

Check out all the photos after the jump, and remember, this is not an official toy, neither produced nor endorsed by Hasbro or Takara Tomy.

I hate that I love BW because I don't want to want this but that is a pretty figure. I like how the legs form a drone spider.

Sweet. I really want this. Though ... I kinda hope it's not out til the second half of the year ... my wallet ... it weeps.

I don't think there's an actual spider "mode" I think thats more of a drone of hers! Looks like all the extra spider leg kibble from her BACK turns into a separate spider drone
SCPrime
nice looking figure but if this is around 100ish like RC bike then no thanks. With so many other better stuff coming I have to prioritize now.

yeah, its the back seat (shield in botmode), the legs, ....whats sticking out the back horizontally?
i wasnt interested until i saw the spider mode, now this is top of my buy list.
Gundamben831
wow she lookin pretty damn good can't wait to see the final painted pics.

I want this but I'm going to have to put it on low priority because I'm already low on funds. I've already started to invest in two combiners and that's like $1000 right there.
daimchoc
OMG!
MasterxBlaster
Yeah she is in "mid" priority at the moment, with all these other 3P and MP releases I gotta be WAY wiser with my spending habbits!

But she is looking miggggggghty fine!
Impactor1106
Low low priority for me, looks cool though.

Do you ever think about how much you'll have spent if you got all the combiners later on?

I'm looking forward to Arachnid. I wonder if PE will lower it's prices. PE RC is still available for $80, not the original $100.
brr-icy
looks kibbly...
Nemesis251
I hope we get two color options like RC. Black and gold preferably.
FatedLazarus
Well this was the last thing I needed to see right now. She looks freakin awesome and there aren't even paint apps yet. I hope they drop the price abit or give us so time to recoup funds. Jan and feb have become my most expensive months for collecting ever.

Probably wouldn't save much compared to buying them right away. The only big ticket 3P item I can recall that got its priced reduced significantly was Hercules, which I didn't buy.
Darcemeus
Oh she is SO bought.
hardreturn
Yes. Been waiting for this.
TheGame2K5
Damn you PE I have enough stuff on my plate to buy, I didnt need to see this, but of course I have to own it. lol.
Astronut
Looks cool, but completely uninteresting to me (thank god).
Hope PE can do something I want again though. they were my favorite company of 2011.
CobramusPrime
Freaking awsome, and it was about time we seen/heard something new about this.
Rahvin
It looks better than I had imagined. Obviously, I'm in.
Paladin
switch the wheels for jets; it would be a perfect stand-in for Airachnid.
Polenicus
And THIS is how you do a female robot with spider overtones and a fully mechanical alt mode.

This is what Airachnid should have been.

This... makes my wallet hate me. But it will be mine.
TJ Duckett
Planning on getting at least 3 of these as a troop. Cannot wait.
Agent Adam
There are some neat things going on with this, and the spider-drone is a nice touch. That being said, overall this figure doesn't do much for me.
ORIO
All over this. Spider-Mode/accessories are the mutt's nuts
jbz
what is the inspiration for this? Beast Wars character? I never followed BW, so forgive the noobness of the question. It looks cool regardless. Has a mospeada vibe to it
slugslinger2004
Really like this more than I thought I would, but I can't justify a $100 repaint of a mold I already have, especially if I plan on getting Menasor.

BW character, but it looks like the deco's more inspired by the TFA version of the character.
autobotsrollout
Oh dear god that looks amazing. Im in the works of turning the beast wars characters into their cybertronian selves before that series and this is the perfect black arachnia , just a little gold paint touch ups and its done.
Megatron31
this thing is wicked

cool thanks. Might have to avoid this one just so I don't start traveling down the BW path, lol. It looks awesome though

At least answer the question... Black Arachnia from BeastWars.
UltraPrimal
Looks great except for the kissy lips. Although that may be a trick of the light or something. In most of the pics that show her face, it looks like she's got huge "O" shaped lips like a model who got too many collagen injections. But in one of them, they look normal.

Also, I hope they release an alternate version at the same time like they did with their original Arcee figure. I'd rather get a BW gold and black version than an Animated black and purple version.
Prime Evil
Looks great, but the timing of this puts this at the bottom of the priorities list for me as well. Damn shame too.

Naw, I wasn't talking about delaying your purchase. Rather, are you prepared to get a version of every G1 and Victory Saber combiner at $500/pop?


When is the release date for Arachnid?
Flyby33
As much as I want this 3p combiners are taking my money this year! But damn it looks boss!

lol, thanks daimchoc. I figured it out after googling a bit.
RedAlert Rescue
The pink is a little to in your face bright. Lavender would be better. Or perhaps Gold.

I would like for it to sit well with the other two and also look right with Airachnid and Blackarachnia. if the intention is to make a Pink Spider as well then the pink might match that and work - but perhaps a white spider would be a better idea.

she will need a bit of paint on her helm too, if this is just early work then it's very promising but if the final version is like that it might loose them a few sales.
Kaijumaster
animated Color scheme, disappointing, I was really hoping for BW s1.
Shizuka
The design is really uninspiring. Why should I buy this and Not Prime Arcee? See the visual similarity? This is why I really enjoyed the movies-verse designs; Arcee in Revenge of the Fallen looked in my opinion, really, really good - different, original and interesting, a design that sparked talk.
Shatterpoint
So bought once I get the funds.
Darcemeus
Anyone else notice that they're calling her "Aranea" in the first pic?
(Which is both a genus of orb-weaver spiders and a dungeons and dragons creature.)
unlikelyhero
Any line think these are to masculine? I wish these had more feminine proportions.
nightwing1701
Gorgeous! You've done it again Perfect Effect! I can't wait to see the finished product shots!!
dinordi
Been looking forward to this for months, but no BW colors is a deal-breaker.
optics
Looks awesome
