    Sorry if this was already posted but i got a couple questions about ole airachnid.

    1st: if she can control insecticons can she control others with insect modes?

    2 could she control those with a spider mode?

    3 What are your thoughts as to what her fate is or will be

    1: It appears her mental link only affects a bestial Insecticon under a hive mind. A 'proper' Cybertronian with an insect mode would likely be unaffected.

    2: If the spider were a type of Insecticon, most likely.

    3: I think she survived the Nemesis and may well reappear in Season 3

    I hope Megatron finds her and finishes the job he tried to start back in Crossfire.

    I think she could only control the lackey insecticons, but it'd be awesome if she could overpower someone like Hardshell after a bit of a struggle. As for spider alt-modes, I'd like to think she's one of the only ones in the Prime Universe (if she is an experiment of Shockwave's like people think), so thatd be a no.

    She most definitely, for sure, survived the destruction of the Autobot base and will be back and hopefully more murderous than before since Arcee didn't kill her.

    She'll probably show up again, with no explanation as to why she can control the Insecticons.

    The only reason the Insecticons follow Airachnid is because they are attracted to the ladies....

    *shrug* i don't know nor do i care.

    Who knows to the first two. It was barely if at all explained in the show. The answer could be anything.

    As for the third question, I couldn't care less if she comes back. Her character was uninteresting.

    1. What others? As far as we know the Insecticons are the only ones with insect alt modes. If you meant that as a hypothetical question like if there were other insect transformers who are not actually Insecticons then I would assume yes.

    2. Again there aren't any Transformers who transform into Spiders in this series. They could introduce Tarantulas and Blackarachnia at some point and I would assume yes.

    3. I think she's dead however I was looking at the wiki and she does have a Beast Hunters toy however just having a toy doesn't necessarily mean that it's going to actually appear in the series. Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Smokescreen also have Beast Hunters toys but I don't really see them actually appearing in the series. Bumblebee and Wheeljack just have a bunch of spikes on their normal modes and this seems like a gimmick to sell toys rather than something that would actually make sense in the story. Smokescreen is actually a new mold that looks more like the show model than the Knock Out retool who is missing the doors on his back. Airachnid's toy isn't even a deluxe or anything it's just like a legion version of her normal body so that also leads me to the conclusion that it means nothing towards her survival.

    You should really check TFWiki, they have pictures.

    The Beast Hunter toy is. Though from the picture they show it looks a little too good to be a legion figure. I thought it was a deluxe and had to go back and look again when you said that.
