    Dang. Nothing new revealed.
    The wait between toy fair and sdcc is far too long to go without actual news.
    Botcon was good about that. Usually in the late spring/early summer. Gave us enough to tide us over until sdcc.

    It’s Cyberverse Bumblebee.

    Gah, when are we getting new info on that Armada Optimus Prime? This waiting is as bad as waiting to see if the US version of the Sega Genesis Mini will have M.U.S.H.A. o_O

    Looks like they might go with the black feet for Blackarachnia.. That's a bit silly. Not the worst thing ever but a strange decision nonetheless.

    It's like, I know I'm going to buy it so somebody just point me at a reputable pre-order and let's call it a day.

    since beast mode is already messed up, I think purple feet would be better in robot mode. you know... its odd to see her \"black\" feet.

    Wow MP-46 has no backpack. Incredible! Yes the alt mode is far from perfect but that bot mode is perfect.

    Nice pics of MP BA, already bought this lovely looking figure. I get they made her feet black to match beast mode but still Id rather show accurate purple feet to make her robot mode perfect. It would be nice if Takara would include spare purple color feet as an option (usually see this with 3rd parties).

    Easy to do when you completely sacrifice the alt mode

    Then nothing of value was lost, I'd rather have a clean robot than a robot with spider kibble chunks on it. Maybe if she was bigger it would be possible but Blackarachnia is literally one of the smallest characters in the show, this is an almost deluxe size toy

    That’s what action figures are for- these are transformers. When one mode is awful, it defeats the purpose and you may as well make everything untransformable revoltechs

    I think the alt mode looks downright good. It may not be perfect, and I dislike sacrifices in designs, but I'm seeing it as a necessary evil to make the bot mode as amazing as it is.
    Close-ups of the beast mode will never look great. Same goes for the rest of the BW MP's with bot pieces sticking out and larger shell panels, so all the uproar over how "awful" the spider mode is always comes of to me as unnecessarily negative.
