Tekno's Blackarachnia is Doing Things to me.
No preorders yet?
I'm all for more females and will definitely be getting these.
I have the TFCC Slipstream and will continue to use her in my display. She's unique, I don't have that Starscream. This new new Slipstream I'll get just to have and support the ladies.
BA, I was never a fan of Beast Wars, I can't stand the animation. I like that this used the Animated body rather than the other BAs. I don't get why people are asking for the claw hands, that is one of the main reasons I don't like the other BA figures. I love that the Animated one has actual hands.
I love Nightbird I'm so glad she's getting a figure. While I would have preferred a non transforming figure more based on the cartoon I'm ok with this reuse of Arcee.
Speaking of Arcee reuse, where the heck is Elita-1?! It would be pretty easy to tweak Arcee to make Elita-1.
Hasbro does it alone eh? Without any assistance from TT?
TFs have always been a collaborative between these two companies as most of the engineering is done by TT.
Oh good, as long as we do.
So based on Chromia, it is possible.
So, it's a collaboration. Still, they could have done a better remould eh? EH? EH?!
I'm not a big fan of that arcee mold, but I kinda HAVE to have an official nightbird.
Slipstream I'm not so sure. I have my animated one, and the tfcc one, and while this one looks better than the latter, it is still just a retool.
Blackarachnia... I dunno. I think I'm fine with animated being my only BA, especially since this one will be so similar. Maybe if this looks really strikingly different after paint I'll consider it.
exactly what I was thinking and hoping
Remolding Arcee's energon swords into sai is brilliant.
Boobdibles! No doubt filled with venom.
I'm liking what Takara did with Slipstream's head sculpt as far as her side vents are concerned. It echoes the side vents on the Seeker heads but raised slightly higher (most likely so her head has clearance so nothing rubs against the collar pieces) so it almost looks like a woman's bob hair style. Looking forward to seeing her and the other fembots in color.
Takara doesn't produce any new ideas? Arms Micron Breakdown and the Go! duo/triple combiners line say hi.
I'll give you the Go! Combiners, but Breakdown was made with the intention of a Hasbro release, although it was cancelled. If I recall correctly it was because the mold didn't fit the Voyager budget, but I don't recall the official reason that was given.
I'm totally down for all three of these. So far, they look awesome.
Tarantulas will finally have a male altmode. I'm not seeing the problem.
What? I thought Breakdown was made by Takara for a domestic release. It's why it was impossible to get it released here: it doesn't fit into the deluxe-voyager pricing scheme.
Because Blackarachnia had claw hands. Just because you don't like the show doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to get why people want more accuracy in a design, especially when it's one of the defining features.
Its awesome we are getting a Blackacachnia figure. It looks good
This makes me wonder if we'll see Elita 1 sometime later down the line.
An Elita-1 from a re-tooled Arcee would be good (while we're on the if 3p's can do it)
me too as well, I love nightbird, but always considered Elita 1 to be more important, heck she was a transformer too !
Never thought I'd see the day that TF fans actively want an Actionmaster
