    theres anyone thinks that could be a new arachnic decepticon in TF3? Bay likes to add an animal transformer in every movie (scorponox-ravage), so who knows?, insert the idea of a new decepticon faction like the predacons.

    I'd be very happy is Beast Wars characters returned in some form for Prime. They defined a whole generation of TF fans, myself included, and they're long overdue for a return. Blackarachnia and Waspinator in TFA was a great start, now let's bring back more!

    G1 characters have gotten reinvented again and again....why not some BW characters in the next series?

    That's the same Pred symbol on Universe Dinobot's faction panel, it's probally Generations or PCC Airrachnid with Predacons.

    It is a secret name for the prime toyline. Or a be remake of bw. Or something really new.

    ...No. :gen069: 

    As far as Airachnid goes, I'm not surprised that he (or she) is given a Predacon symbol. The name alone invokes Beast Wars, so it could be part of Generations, or an entirely redone Beast Wars line.

    You know what I think? Maybe this isn't a faction symbol at all. Maybe it's a design for the potential toy's HEAD.

    Does anyone know if Hasbro still holds trademarks on Tarantulas? If they've lost it then that's probably a good bet. I really hope they make a new Tarantulas figure, he's my favorite Predacon.

    I'm guessing its a PCC. Since PCC repaints switch the limbs around, theres probably going to be another animalistic PCC-with-drones set that can switch a few limbs with Grimstone.

    Although the probability of that lies somewhere between "absolutely nothing" and "positively nothing", it would be neat to see a Predacon with a head based on the Pred symbol.

    OT, I'm thinking this is a PCC. Then again, if it was just a PCC, why would Hasbro have been so tight-lipped about at Botcon? Time will tell, although a revived Beast Wars would be amazing. I'd love to see what they could do with today's engineeri-

    Oh, right, them. Well, hopefully it could be cooler than those two. :lol

    Bingo. That's exactly what I was thinking. Airachnid terrorize! Hmm, doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Shot in the dark.

    TF Prime deals with drones. Could be the "air faction" name with their own insignia. Maybe Airachnid is the name of the seeker drones, if they are in Prime. Hence the lack of news and info for the series at Botcon and SDCC.

    It sure is nostalgic seeing that faction symbol again, even if it has changed somewhat. I really hope some beastformers get brought to Prime, that'll make it a big blast!
