    Tarantulas was never satisfied with his 'job'.

    Sure, he was a high-ranking covert operative who reported directly to the Tripredacus Council, and on the surface, a member of the Predacon Secret Police. However, he always wanted a little more influence.. and the power that came with it.

    That chance came when he was assigned to Megatron's crew by the Tripredacus Council, to track and report any information related to the Golden Disk..

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally got around to completing one of the customs I've been planning for some time - Pre-Beast Wars Tarantulas!

    I chose Crosscut as his base due to the shoulders, which reminded me of Tarantulas' Transmetal form, and his arm blasters, which I thought was an integral part of Tarantulas' arsenal.

    I've paired him up in the last shot with another of my customs, Pre-Beast Wars Megatron!

    Enjoy!

    looks badass. When you can look at it and know immediately who the character is the customizer did a great job.

    That works so much better than the Wreckgar mould. I really like how the arm cannons allude to his beast wars claw hands

    This looks 1000 times better than the official Cybertronian Tarantulas.

    Shoulder pads are so similar to the original Transmetal version of Tarantulas.
