    No, I know that she's probably more in the 5-6" range to be in scale. Just saying the majority of action figures in that size range, +/- don't really need the extra support of ratchet joints.

    It was up earlier, but with a 0.00 price, and you couldn't add it to your cart. The listing has suddenly disappeared, now.

    The string looks thin, but shes also around the size of a deluxe class figure w/ probably no diecast. So i'm guessing she'll be able to hang.

    Exactly! :) 

    Yes, both the gun and missile store in beast mode. The gun is part of the spider abdomen and the missile attached under her belly.

    I'm sure the figure will be able to stand just fine. The resin prototype is way loose and can't be compared to the finished product.

    Also, for the record, my Dinobot stands just fine in either mode. I've never felt the need to use the stand.

    So I preordered 2 this time around witch I dont generally do but this one seems particularly special for some reason.

    Total came to 22866 yen witch comes to 104.43 each. Seems about right at that price.

    Yeah the more I look at the spider mode the more I realize it really is just my memory of her in the show giving me any issue with it at all. It's actually a damn nice spider mode, even if not totally accurate.

    I can totally see finding a real spider outside that looks just like this and thinking "Woah some kind of weird black widow I haven't seen before with copper colored legs and gold lumps on the sides of her butt!" I sure wouldn't be in total disbelief at what I was seeing. I've seen weirder looking spiders, and less cool looking ones too.

    What ever happened to US retailed MPs? Besides the fact Toysrus closed in the states.

    Awesome articulation for the waist. If they keep going this route, I'm very much looking forward to an Arcee one day!

    Our/your custom (apart from not transforming, naturally) was the best looking Blackarachnia out there for 6 (!) years! Not bad!

    Just to clarify, he is just one of the project members. He's new to the team and seems to do most of the PR related stuff. It doesn't state anywhere that he's the main designer.

    Hah, thank you. Funny you mention that because I saw a pic of that recently and sighed, thinking about how it will soon be obsolete. That happens to us collectors though. I've been there at least 3 times with Masterpiece Megatron.
