    quick look for this one since there is really not much to go into on the transformation or features.

    what wasn't acceptable with the deluxe is here and works very well. the sculpt is spot on and the purple paint used is really nice with a metallic sheen to it.

    the vehicle mode is also done well for this size class and you would be hard pressed to know it was a transformer in hand if not for the nicely done decepticon emblem on the nose in that purple metallic.

    size comparison to the average legion and commander respectively

    the BEST part of this figure for me comes in its removable spinning helicopter blades. having them removable with the same sized peg used for all the other cyberverse weapons in the line means you can take them and put them on the top or arms of other characters to have a spinning blade weapon. alternatively for those with peg holes in the roof of their alt modes a sweet flying car/truck (and really who doesn't want this!)
    it totally make up for the fact that the new legion weapons do not have the translucent plastic "light" effects and have now gone to that grey plastic we have all come to love:cry

    Sweet vindication-- it's nice to finally have a decent Airachnid, in any size class. Quick question, though; does she have knees? They look like they might bend from the picture, but I'm not sure.

    Nice acquisition, Cyberverse is a great line. I'm interested to get Twin strike.

    Sweet, totally getting this. I'm not into Legion figures but she, along with Soundwave, look great. I'm glad she has knee articulation, though I'd rather she have elbow articulation, but oh well. Plus, looks like it might be easier to create spider legs for her in this scale than the Deluxe.

    Not uncommon for Cyberverse to trump 'full' sized counterparts. Cyberverse Megatron pound for pound is a better representation than the deluxe or Voyager; the same could be said for Dreadwing/Skyquake.

    Got one yesterday and I agree, this is better than the deluxe version. With elbows and knees, she would be perfect.

    Just as awful as the deluxe, if you ask me.

    Why does she have boob slats?

    She looks decent. At least she looks better than Deluxe version.

    I'll just buy her so I could fill up my On-show Decepticons. All I need is Hardshell (and maybe a few Insecticons if they repaint him), Soundwave, and maybe a Shockwave and I'll be happy!

    She has distinct arms-- elbows or not, I consider that a massive improvement. And honestly, I think a Legion toy would make her more scale-accurate next to most of the show Decepticons anyway.

    I have hopes that BH might give us another, hopefully better Airachnid deluxe mold.

    But not too much hope.

    It's something, at least. And if nothing else, at least we'll always have this one now.
