    Agreed on all points. In fact I really enjoyed the work James Roberts did in MTMTE/Lost light to address gender and sexuality in Transformers. That's the enlightened age I'm talking about not banning boobs because they might offend someone or making women feel ashamed of their own bodies! lol didn't expect to be typing "Banning boobs' when i got up this morning.

    I imagine the palps in spider mode will be different and the bot claw hands will be hiddden in the spider abdomen. For that matter, I expect most of the bot for will fold up to form the abdomen. And of course I’m expecting her missile launcher/grapple gun weapon to be included

    There is a rumor going around that Takara had to redo the shoulders on Hound because of problems with the mould which is why we are seeing a protoype Hound when they had a painted one last time.

    Oh yeah. I wonder what her comedy quirk was in the show.
    Trust me dude it’s fine. Look at my posts in the wonderfest thread and I just shout everything at size 7 bold in red. That’s what I do when I’m really passionate and excited.
    Lol that’s ridiculous.
    Colour changers I say!

    So I'm fairly sure that stand will be included, as will the web effect. Multiple face plates seem to be standard for BWMPs and there there will be her gun(with a string/web line or without?), what other features/accessories do we expect to see? Electronics? Moving spider eyes?

    I’m fairly confident she’ll have blast effects for her spider leg guns.

    I can't imagine this figure including any electronics.

    I think its unlikely but he eyes did light up quite a lot in the show...and you know what TT are like about 'that things that happened that one time in the show'.
    You mean the ones at the tips of her spider legs? I'm trying to imagine how they'd pull that off, there certainly doesn't look to be any indication of how they would attach on the legs.

    Yeah this would be Cheetor-sized so unlikely. Interchangeable faces (we definitely need that sultry winking face lol), and maybe a rope of some description to use with her grapple gun.

    This reminds me that I'm pretty much ready for upcoming repaints of this mould. I wouldn't mind if they release it on the original Blackarachnia toy colours and treat it as a brand new character.

    I'd like Scorpinock or Inferno.

    Scorpinock just because he has never had a figure that looked near show accurate

    Plus we'd get his cyber bee, which they would have be attachable to Optimus for rampaging action.

    and Inferno because he'd just be so much fun to pose in crazy scenes

    Plus these days they would likely have flame effects for his cannon

    Which would add $50 to his price.

    Just wondering with everyone who was in the main predacon and maximal cast for season 1?

    Well I mean it should be simple enough to create some small effect parts that slide over the tips of the legs. Kinda like the new bluestreak’s effct parts. They’d just have to make them toleranced right to fit over snug.
    If you look around 2:28 they wouldn’t be that hard to design and implement.
    Or as I’m leading to be MP-46+ Blackwidow.
    Oh yeah scorponok would be great to have. He’s a very simple and fun design that would lead to figure since he’s never carried much weight in general beast wars nostalgia. Like he could be a really great figure and we’d think no more or less. Inferno would be fun as well. Especially some flame parts.

    Fairly certain the outer claw"fingers" will become the spiders mandibles. Theres just too much going on in the hands for just articulation.

    I mean I’d take an antagony as well. Who else in the colony?
