    Yes. I think it's just me being a bw noob here. I thought cheebs was homaging some repaint or toy deco. Still kinda confused that I am the only one seeing this as being different. :p

    Heh its alright, like @SPLIT LIP lip said its a Digibash its not gonna look exactly the same! Personally I think @Cheebs did an excellent job but the colours are a bit more muted/dark in the screen caps.

    ps: speaking of seeing different colors, did you see the video of the show? Look at the section where mp43 comes into screen and see how the purple seemingly 'changes' tones in between frames. For me the differences are so stark that I feel like I am looking at three different possible deco's (yeah, I am pretty 'sensitive' to colors).

    Ha ha. I guess I took too many liberties on the black tone in my digibash. I didn't want to wash out the details, but I still wanted to convey black. Next time I'm at a pc I'll blacken up the black and take some red out off the legs make it all look less like the blue and red TM2 body.

    Honestly, I wasn't huge on transmetal blackarachnia. I'm not sure if it's because she was in that body for such a short time I never grew attached to it, or if her change in personality felt under developed to me, or what. But I have no attachment to that character and forget she exists while loving blackarachnia otherwise.

    I have more attachment to the original but as a fan of the character overall I would like to see one, would love to know how they handle her shoulders. Overall I enjoy the character model and with how accurate TT has been portraying them in the MP line I would really like to see what all the TM 2's could look like.

    I only kinda like it cause I realised it inspired animated blackarachnia. Otherwise yeah it’s kinda lame.

    Texture. Matches up nicely with the texture on her back pieces that we could see at the show.

    Well gosh golly, this is a hell of a thing to wake up to on a Monday.

    Blackarachnia is about the best character to reveal to me at this point. Transmetal Taratulas, G1 Blitzwing, those are the only things I'd be more excited by.
    And she looks friggen fantastic. It's been said in this thread before, and I will echo the sentiment - Beast Wars is the most exciting thing about the Masterpiece line right now.

    Wow I would love a tm2 mp dinobot! He was way too small as a deluxe. He's supposed to be a huge character.

    I gotta admit , I never even knew she had purple on her till I noticed @Cheebs digi. I always assumed she was mainly black with some red and yellow highlights. She’s easily a crucial piece to any BW collection . I’m really glad they decided to go with her next as well . ( I would really LOVE to see her BM figure come to life too . ) Takara is really nailing the BW sculpts down well .

    Even if you remold some of her details, you'll have a hard time getting a TM version because of the fact that TM has the Spider legs on her back instead of the arms.

    There's been more ambitious reworks than that, in the past. If you'll notice, the legs aren't actually attached directly to her arms on her prototype, but on a rotating block on her bicep. They could easily re-rig that system.

    It's all moot, though, since a hypothetical TM2 Blackarachnia wouldn't be a remold of this toy. It's far too different, overall.

    You know I’ve never been made to feel more like an adult than i have during the reveal of MP Blackarachnia and the absolute barrage of plastic-booby-hysteria.

    I thought I knew who I was; happy in the belief that I was a socially awkward, immature man-child but it would appear I’m in-fact now a socially awkward, jaded grown-up - or as close to one as you can get while still having a crazy passion for collecting toys.

    Jesus...

    I could live for another 60+ years- if I cut down on all the bacon. Is this what it’s gonna feel like?!

    Oh well, at least I’ll have the slow release rate of Beast Wars MPs to accompany me gradually into the abyss.
