    Another designer video has shown up, but we can't watch it. @Phamduc can you please help us out like you did with the MP-45 video?

    Man I really hope all the help people asking Phamduc doesn’t get him into trouble. I’ll wish for his safety since he said he hopes not to end up in jail :(

    You look good!

    Sorry, weird reflex...

    I'm assuming that photo in spider-mode is during transformation, and not ANOTHER case of mistransformation... cause that would be ridiculous.

    Hey, you're in Japan right? Can you watch the video, maybe take some more screencaps, or if you have time even download it and re-upload it to youtube? That's all I'm asking Phamduc to do, since he did it for MP-45's video. Don't think he'll be arrested for that.

    I'd ask @onnsake but I know he doesn't like Beast Wars ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Okay. Now that it's confirmed she was mis-tranformed at the Shizuoka Hobby Show, I'll put down my little theory of why the display sample was that badly mis-transformed, aside from the fact that it's a very delicate hand-painted prototype. The Shizuoka Hobby Show is mainly a plastic model kits/RC con, unlike cons like Wonderfest which has a bit of everything. With Transformers being a complete action figure series maybe TT wasn't going to put too much resource into the show; but at the some point somebody realized there hadn't been enough PR done for MP BA and we were already so close to the pre-order date. So the spider mode prototype may have been rushed as a last-minute addition. Now come to think of it, even small release like Cheetor in the BW MP line had multiple grey prototype con appearances. For BA we see her (badly mis-transformed) spider mode for the first time and barely a week later the pre-order drops. Not sure why the PR has been so lacking for her.

    Onto the figure itself I'm glad to see the mostly positive feedback on here. The spider mode looks a ton better properly transformed. I'm like a lot of people still not a fan of the knees/shins hanging off the abdomen but at least they're much better integrated. Keep in mind she's smaller than the Cheetor mold (pic courtesy of S250 on here) edit: ninja'ed by the designer video's size comparison..

    I also 100% agree that black feet are photoshopped (the reflection is purple)

    TT have pulled this on us before with Dinobot's raptor mode leg panel (to a lesser extent though).

    That'a very interesting idea! Would be a nice compromise between 'bot and spider mode.


    So a small digi-bash request: can somebody color the feet purple in one of the official spider mode pics, just to see how that looks with everything properly transformed? Thanks in advance.

    God damn I love AJ. Order total was less than MSRP, and that's not even accounting for any future dips in price.

    Granted with our dogshit currency that's still $175 Canadian, but who knows maybe the dollar will get better by November? *cry-laughs*

    These Beast Wars masterpieces are among the best things they’ve ever done.
