    Not that I have noticed. She's a pretty solid release QC-wise.

    Only other thing I can think of is to be carful not to scratch the paint on her robot mode head when transforming her. There's very little clearance when maneuvering her head through the spider-mode uuuh butt?

    QC-wise, she’s very solid. However, I don’t think I’ll be transforming her anymore - getting back to spider mode is a royal pain in the ass and it doesn’t even look good to boot. Not worth the extended effort. So, she’s a nice figurine, in essence. Which significantly lowers the fun factor for me, personally.

    After the initial disappointment, I've actually come to really like her beast mode. She looks proper creepy on my current beast mode shelf :D

    Great display. It’s about time I move my beast mode figures to their own shelf. It’s way too crowded with all the bot mode guys now and I’ve never had room to get Megatron out. I think when Tigatron comes I’ll do it

    Thanks man! Yeah they look even better when they have room to breathe. Go for it! I'll probably give the Preds and Maximals their own shelf once Tigatron comes out, in preparation of next year ^^

    Nice display, here's my Beast Mode display(ignore Spidey and Venom scrapping in the background), Blackarachnia was SUPPOSED to be joint it this weekend but SOMEONE put an incomplete address on my parcel and therefore it's been returned to sender :mad:

    Nice set up, I really like the Spider-Man/Venom fight scene too. Haha. Hopefully Blackarachnia gets to you soon.

    Mine’s in pretty much the exact same situation. Hope we both get ours sorted out but for now, your display looks rad! I’m so jealous.

    Ah alright. Your collection’s looking pretty swanky so far and I can’t to see how it looks once your BA comes in. Mine’s gonna be my first BW MP ever followed by MP38 sometime soon if the pandemic doesn’t delay that too much. Which Transmetal Megatron figure is that, if you don’t mind me asking? I know there’s at least one 3P option out there but I’m relatively new into this section of the brand so I know nothing about it.

    Everyone's a critic. Fixed. I really wish those clicked into place rather than staying up by friction, it's so easy to accidentally push them down when messing with him.

    I'm sure you wont be disappointed with BA as you first MP, she is awesome. Just be careful with that paint job, some of the clearances are a little tight and you might scratch/scrape it. The Transmetal Megatron is JiangXing Metalbeast Winged Dragon, you can read about it here: Jiang Xing JX-Metalbeast-01 Winged Dragon (BW Transmetal 2 Megatron) and red my review here: JiangXing JX-01 Metailbeast Winged Dragon

    First BW MP has arrived! Can’t figure out the face swapping stuff but I’m really liking it so far. Really gets me excited to jump into the rest of the line.

    She was a weird release, she wasn't bad, but I don't think the femme fatale vibe went over as well as planned. Or they're going to have issues with some of the lessee BWs.

    Glad you like it, if you like this you'll love the rest! IMO all the other Beast Wars MPs are superior, not to say she's a bad figure just that the others are even better. Face swapping is pretty easy, I tend to use the chin to loosen the face plate and the gently pull the face away from the top and bottom, don't use finger nails... they'll chip the paint I reckon.

    I think they did well not to muddy the waters, she's pretty much a straight representation of the on screen character. My issues with her (I certainly have a few) have nothing to do with how she looks or poses (in robot mode), she looks exactly how she should do. The character was designed this way, she was a femme fatale in both appearance and characters... what's not to like?

    Ah okay, that’s much easier than I expected. I’m definitely excited for the other ones as they all seem to have a better balance of beast to robot, but BA was a good one to test the waters with, I think. Doesn’t really set my expectations low since it’s still a great figure, but since the rest of them all seem even more phenomenal they’ll feel even better.

    i dont think it was anything about muddying waters, I think they probably thought she would have a little more crossover appeal. I thought being female would give her a push in sales but judging by her availability and price, I don't think that's what happened.

    Personally, I thought I was going to get her at first (she would have been my first BW MP), but my extreme dislike of spiders has so far kept me from getting her. I may still...but just not feeling it yet...lol.
