Lool, actually really true!
I'd say that would be correct. In one of the display pics, you can straight up see the gun in her backside...
As far as the stand goes, obviously none if us know the real reason, but my gut feeling is that it was included with BA on the basis of adding more perceived "value" at the price point, once tooling and engineering brought the figure to over a certain amount.
I assume the stand will most likely be included with all of the smaller figures from here on.
Just my opinion, of course.
as good as this blackarachnia looks and as tempting as she is i honestly think id prefer perfect effect or some other company to do a version of her in the vein on leonidas/mega doragon/gt-10 optimus primal/dx9 ancestrod. thats quickly becoming my preferred aesthetic for beast era figures, though like i said, this girl is really tempting
Damm, I did it again.
Preordered from anime-export.
I guess Rattrap will be next.
I hope her feet still end up purple. Even if they're very dark purple.
It's something I always liked about her color scheme.
yeah the black feet look out of place
I'm pretty sure they will be purple. The stock images are wierdly photoshopped. It would be a really odd move by TT to not ultra show accurate on every aspect of the robot mode...except the feet. Personally I don't really mind black or purple...both fine with me.
Heh...at least we're only worried about thier colour eh? Could worse
Yeah, I think so as well.
They even cut half of her feet in this shot (look at the comparison I've attached in there, the curve under the feet is totally absent). Probably to hide the glue..but still, I don't understand why they've colored them black.
just about to preorder BA on AE, but is it the cheapest store before shipping and possible customs etc?
Pretty sure it's the cheapest for UK folk.
For me in Canada. It's just the shipping that will get ya.
Well it seems they were originally purple and then Photoshopped into black. In doing so, they've made the beast mode more cohesive for a bit of inaccuracy to the robot mode.
Still, I don't think they should have bothered and hope the final has them purple again.
Lol where did you preorder?
I ordered on Amazon Japan which is about ~170 CAD including shipping and import. If I could get even cheaper that would be great.
He'll get made. He may be an exclusive but he'll get made.
Gosh those are so nice. So much better.
Agreed. It’d be an odd move. Like 12+ Lambor randomly has a black fender midway through that is used to make his legs look cleaner. So it makes sense they’d prefer the robot first.
Considering that most large companies outsource their customer service to parts of the world in or near India, or the Philippines (and arguably, English isn't a first language there), then I would say the difference is negligible.
I'd say Amazon Japan uses serviceable English. It's not great, but I understand it. No more strange them dealing with Chinese or Malaysian staff at sites like TFDirect, or other 3P/KO shops online.
As for EFL (Sorry, It's not, technically ESL, as there's a distinction; PM me if you wish to discuss it!), I would agree (although there have been some problems, from time to time, including talking to southerners in the USA. Being British, it was a challenge talking with such "non-native" English speakers! )
Is it cheaper to order from AJ or from Anime Export if shipping to USA?
Will Amazon Japan pricematch against Anime-Export? I'm thinking of switching my preorder.
