    Looking at the designer video and comparing all the pictures, this is my best guess as to her final size:

    MP Size.jpg

    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.

    I'm quite impressed with the use/incorporation of the stand with Blackarachnia. Stability aside they've really given us a reason to want the stand, that both modes can be positioned on the web using it is a really nice touch. The stand felt tacked on to warrent the the price of Dinobot and I'm sure that's partly the case here but it feels less incongrous here.

    Looks fantastic.

    Yep, I'll take perfect bot mode (sans purple feet) over a compromised widow mode

    Blackarachnia's visor and cable are potentially the first indication since Primal's back plug of designed interaction between figures.

    BW Megs comes with a stand adapter specifically designed to mimick the scene where Primal holds him over his head too :D 

    Man, I love this line!

    Except you made the pic with Primal too big. The head heights match up but not the foot heights. Blackarachnia also is too small compared to Megs in that chart vs the image posted.

    The scale isn't dramatically off of course, but she should be a full head shorter, but she looks to be only about 1/4 of a head shorter at most.

    Or I'm way off and it's just specific angles and she's correctly sized to a T, but I'm thinking back to the pics of her and Shadow Panther and looking at what you posted and my brain is going "nah man it ain't right."

    On the scale chart, the red line at the top of Blackarachnia goes to about the middle of cheetor's head, not the bottom. Looking at the comparisons to Megatron, that looks right on.

    Note that in the picture with Tigatron and Cheetor, her knees are bent and she's being pushed down.

    Some madmen don't even use the stand.

    The lack of her cyber-venom missile is actually very disappointing to me.

    Packaging is most definitely usually one of the coolest parts of collecting toys.

    With regards to @lord ginrai's point about Megatron's adaptors, there is a difference between a piece that is designed to be reverse compatible (interacting with something that came before it) and a piece that is designed to be forwards compatible (interacting with something that doesn't exist).

    With MP Primal, the plug on his back serves no purpose in and of itself. It's been mused that it could connect him with a future MP Rattrap, but we won't know for sure until such a figure is revealed.

    It may turn out that the plug exists purely for the storage piece that came with the redeco version.

    MP Blackarachnia's cable is in the same vein. We know she plugs it into Tarantulas on the show, but we will only know if this accessory does that once MP Tarantulas is revealed.

    Indeed I do agree that, like Primal's back peg, Blackarachnia's visor cord might suggest interaction with future figures. It's all very interesting and welcome however it's nothing new until it actually happens.

    Have to give them some credit, alt mode looks kind of good on the magazine pics when you realize getting the bulbous part of the spider is smoke and mirrors manipulating the legs to give enough of a resemblance. Seeing how small she is and her backpack, there's not much to make up all that. She'll have her bad angles but 3/4 front and top she looks pretty good.

    So have we discussed why the screaming face has green eyes? To recreate when Tarantulas and her had the psychic link?

    Do wish she had a regular non-green-eyed screaming face. And can't wait to see her smiling face in high-res!
