At least there's one new image showing the ankle tilt.
So she's about... 13cm tall by the looks of things.
Is she not GLORIOUS?!
Apart from the criminal lack of Silverbolt...
Well, with the plugs on both ends of the visor cord, MP Tarantulas confirmed!
Well damn- ask and ye shall receive- in the very next post nonetheless.
As I suspected, the spider-mode looks basically perfect from a direct overhead view. The legs blend into the shape of the abdomen, and while you can see a colour difference, it actually looks really great. 9/10 from the top, 6.5/10 from the front. 7/10 overall for beast mode.
That robot mode turn around....she's flawless, no backpack whatsoever. She looks as good from the back as she does the front! A rare occurence in the MP line. Note to MP-45's designers (probably the same guys) this is thr correct way to do it.
The feet still appear to be black, which like I've said before I am totally fine with.
But of course, that's to the detriment of the spider mode. Not that I mind too much.
Also, scale is perfect.
I think most would prefer a flawless robot mode that compromises the alt-mode than the other way around. Of course I'd like the spider to look a bit better but overall I find what they've done more than acceptable.
Yeah the scale looks bang on. Really looking forward to getting mine now.
Cool a size comparison with Megs, she's on the same level as Ravage, Terrorsaur and Tarantulas on Mainframes Pred poster. If this is right Terrorsaur is a full head taller than Primal and the same height as Rhinox.
Why not use the BW scale chart? Sure someone has that topic saved
Purely for the sake of the eventual MP, I really hope Terrorsaur actually is a whole head taller than Primal- more toy and more shelf presence- but I think he’s more likely just half a head.
The upward shot angle of the MP pic and Blackarachnia squatted and hunched pose in the show pic skew things a bit. If Tigatron is next then Terrorsaur is my next top want.
On Topic: BA still has those shopped black feet. Hope that changes for the official outdoor scenery pics.
Here you go:
Pretty much perfect. I don't think we need to even think to worry about scale when it comes to the BW MPs.
Looking so good! Can’t wait
Except she’s too tall. She’s the same height as Cheetor (who’s head comes up to the circle thing on Megs’ crotch) who should be taller than her. Likewise in that scale pic you can see she’s not quite as tall as the MP figure.
Hm? I'm not sure I'm getting you. Cheetor's head comes to the top of Megatron's circle thing while Blackarachnia, from this latest pic (which is a low-angle shot), looks to come to only slightly more than halfway, which is accurate to the scale chart. She's 100% shorter than Cheetor.
Here's a shot of Cheetor and Megs from a similar angle. I mean, he's clearly taller.
Yeah BA looks to be at least a little shorter than Cheetor. Which for me is just about right. To be honest I don't need scale to be spot on just appropriate, I'm like that with toon accuracy too which is why the black feet don't bother me at all. If it captures the character and looks good I'm not bothered if it's 100% screen accurate. I'd rather that than the character look goofy, awkward or lacking in presence.
Looking at the designer video and comparing all the pictures, this is my best guess as to her final size:
It does line up very nicely with the fan-made scale chart, almost perfectly. I mean, are we surprised? They pretty much have the official models for reference. Regardless, let's see how close I got it when November comes.
yeah im fine with this height lets go
