    Some well placed rare-earth magnets could do the trick (like on auto-aligning tablet covers). Or electric magnets requiring a recharge ever so often, or else he false apart ;)

    Its not the exact same line but they are doing something similar to Jazz in MPM, could be the same type of gimmick.

    I was thinking just simple tabs. Instead of using the joints as the separation points, have parts plug in outside of the joints. (Think: Marvel BAF. Separate at the thigh swivel instead of hip.) That would allow for ratchets and better joints while avoiding the extra cost (and potential qc issues with using new tech in MPs) of magnets.

    I wasn't that serious, it would have all sorts of problems (magnets do eventually run out). I don't think it's ever a good idea, although I like it, pose-/playability being my biggest concerns.

    As a huge fan of Blackarachnia, I'm ecstatic that she will be the next Beast Wars MP after ole Grape Face.
    I honestly didn't expect Takara to do her so soon in the line.

    Welp...I need Her.

    I was looking at the pics, trying to figure out how BA transforms...I just can't begin to understand it...

    But I think I see a hinge on the top of her head. It may fold in half at the top.

    Also, the parts the spider legs are attached to may turn around (on the arms) for the alt-mode. Thus making the spider mode stand on it's own without the base?

    It’s gonna be a scavenger hunt to find all his pieces across the show room and then put him back together.
    Nah takara is smart like that. And I’m sure they’ll figure out something.

    I just cannot stop looking at this. I know nothing about this character, so I had to look up which version this was. And man, I hope they are gonna do this somewhere down the line (would be a retool I assume).

    I may still pick this up, but from here on out I think I am going to wait and see what repaints Takara is going to do, as I have learned from my internet research into bw s1 that for many of these characters I (may) prefer the toy coloring and/or colors.

    Google told me this is the transmetal deco. But now I am confused. I was already wondering what the deal was as I searched the thread for 'transmetal' and found only one post mentioning a tm megatron...

    The digibash is of the regular show deco, thats how the toy will look (more of less).

    Season 1-2 deco:

    X is typically the "confirm" button, if you're a Playstation gamer ;) .

    Hmmm, I guess I was a bit hasty in my search, just saw some 'blue and red' and thought 'oh that must be it'. I think I spent too much time behind my pc today...

    But anyway, I am not seeing the same as you here. That digi looks different from the show, eh to me?

    Well, of course it will. It's a digibash of a grey prototype.
