    That's the kind of face that would scare you.

    This is my review the Transformers Legacy Deluxe class Tarantulas. Probably the most wanted Deluxe figure in wave 2 of Legacy.

    Mine did not come with a Box, so I can't show that off in this review.

    Looking at the Tarantula mode. Very close to how the cartoon Tarantulas was, But parts made him look realistic.

    Accessories are Crossbow and Buzzsaw.

    Here's a comparison look with the original Tarantulas figure from the 90's. You can see large improvements.

    Look at him with the other Predacons in Beast mode.

    Here is a shot with all theseason 1 Predacons in Beast Mode. As you can see, I have the original Inferno in the picture until we can get an actual updated Inferno.

    Here is Tarantulas Robot mode. Very accurate to the cartoon. Absolutely perfect.

    Very posable. I was hoping the head would tilt back and forward and side to side, it doesn't.

    Look at both Legacy and Original in Robot mode.

    Comparison with Tarantulas with the other Predacons in robot mode.

    Here is shot of all of them in robot mode. Again, It would be prefect with a better Inferno.

    I highly recommend this figure. This is just the best representation of an updated version of Beast Wars Tarantulas. Absolutely no bad thoughts about this figure. I would totally give this figure a 10 out of 10. Any questions or requests, feel free to ask (That's only if I have the time and the figures).

    This figure is just Insane...

    Not yet. He said it didn't come with a box, so it was probably one of the "questionably obtained" copies on eBay or wherever.

    Does he have a waist swivel, or was I just seeing things back when he got revealed?

    At least it’s a waist swivel. Blackarachnia didn’t even get the luxury of that.

    Cant wait to got mine, from what i see he miss some paint apps, like the yellow mark on his thights and abdomen, seems he was supposed to have purple on the base of the spider legs too if we look on his official renders...

    If theyre is upgrade to do, id like something to replace the claws with a transformation point to fold under the "thumb" part so only the large one appear in beast mode like on the show
