    You'll get one ordering through China/Hong Kong-based stores like Robot Kingdom. BBTS will offer the extras with a $10 mark-up, and usually after a ~year, they'll sell the bonus coin/pin separately for $10.

    A year... any way to find them sooner you think? I already have the figure, so I can’t afford to double dip...

    I don't really follow those releases at all, but it seems to me that they wait about a year after the figure's release, once they're sure all the major interest for the figure has waned and anybody who actually cared about getting the exclusive bonus probably already snapped it up. After that, they've got a pile of extras sitting around collecting dust, so they try to sell them off.

    Finally put her from box. Manual sucks, but she is very easy to transform in robot mode and back. I put spider web with stand and with it she looks very good.

    Wonder, who will be next from Beast Wars. I would expect Dinobot II and Tarantulas from Predacons and Rhinox and Rattrap from Maximals.

    Dinobot II could be retooled from Dinobot and Tarantulas from Blackarachnia.

    I got my Blackarachnia today. I tried attaching her to the web stand in robot mode without reading the instructions. The tiny clip for her spider mode is now extremely stress marked. Is there a way to fix that. Hot water?

    Hot water or a blow dryer. Any heat should remove the stress mark.

    Thanks. It's not super important, but I'll try it. I tried getting it back into spider mode, but I was too lazy to look at the instructions. The figure looks great in robot mode, that's all that matters.

    Are there really no hints as to the next character? I guess they are counting Lio Convoy as the next MP BW so they will hint at the next character around its release? Looks to be one MP BW this year...

    Takara sent out a year of the rat image with rattrap that some people took as a hint.

    Also, there is a whole thread for speculation of BW masterpiece now. Just pop your head in here:

    I've been rewatching Beast Wars recently, I'm half way through season 3 now and do you know what i've noticed? Blackarachnia barely ever uses a web (if at all) but uses her 'leg-guns' almost as often as her anchor gun. Makes me wonder if the web was just there to make the beast mode look good(well... better), and if we get a Tarantulas(who uses his web more but might have a less compromised beast mode) maybe he'll come without a web and with blast effects for the leg-guns meaning we can swap accessories if we so wish. Just a thuoght!

    She does use the single-strand web a decent amount, but definitely not the netted web like she came with. I agree it is a more tarrantulus thing.

    I'm also doing a rewatch, been showing a coworker the show. Just finished Proving Grounds. One of my favourites. Blackarachnia is a real interesting character, though I honestly feel like she was lessened by her relationship with Silverbolt. Honestly, it's a pretty toxic relationship.

    Ha, so you knew what I meant but couldn't resist the urge to 'correct' me... Yes I know (and don't need reminding) she used a web line plenty but that's not what I was referring to... obviously.

    I just wonder if an MP Tarantulas is made how interchangable their accessories will be. He'll be a bit bigger so may not require the stand or web to 'bulk out' the release. Ergo maybe he'll come with less/different accessories and thay will be able to share things like the web/stand, visor and maybe leg-gun effect parts. The visor in less convinced upon as it may not fit his head properly.

    I didn't mean it as a correction, just adding to the conversation.

    I was actually thinking about that when you suggested the leg guns, cause Tarantulas' beast legs are thicker, so I'm not sure how compatible they'd be.

    True, but I'm sure that's something the clever people at TT could overcome if I were to occur to them. The web accessory still very much out of place with this release and a bit cynical (to improve her appearance in spider-mode and help justify the price) so I'd hope if made MP Tarantulas would interface with it.. and hopfully more successfully. I really hope we don't get a second one!

    I... almost really like that...

    It's mostly really cool, but the location of the writing makes it a bit busy, and not super readable...

    Also.. what's going on with that face... did they get Nickolas Cage to play blackarachnia?
