    Of them all, Nightbird weird me out the most because she's not a transformer. This isn't the first time she's been portrayed as one or as an Arcee remold either (her first being a 3rd party offering). I'm still very interested on her as well as Slipstream. Not so into Blackarachnia but we'll see more once she's released. As for Hasbro potentially releasing the 3 state side, I have little doubt. It'll happen. Give them a few months.

    I really wanted a new mold Blackarachnia, but this works too, I guess. If it's the closest we're going to get, at least we'll get a Blackarachnia who is acceptable for the shelf. Hopefully the headsculpt is great, it's hard to see there in the image. Nightbird is neat but I'm not super interested. Slipstream looks amazing and like she could fit into my WFC / FoC display, since she did technically appear in that universe as well, and the design looks a little more appropriate than the BH mold one they did for TFCC.

    Nice, but why does Slipstream still have the original wings?

    Well its possible that Hasbro could release these as online exclusives like they did with Wildrider and Slingshot however I wouldn't count on it.

    That's pretty interesting. First Chormia from Prime Arcee and now Arachnia from an Animated mold.

    Wonder how far back they'd go for molds in the Generations line...

    To be honest, that Animated mold was the best choice for the character. The original BW mold was horrible, and the TF Prime Airachnid mold was even worse, so I'm more than happy with the one we're getting.

    I hope hope HOPE that these get released widespread. NEVER saw the Acree mold here, would not mind an AWESOME spider to my collection to go with my incecticons, and even though I made my own Slipstream out of that mold, would LOVE to have an offiical one.

    Here's to hoping. :bowdown:

    While I wish they were bigger than Deluxe class, the Nightbird in particular is very tempting.

    Did not expect a remolded Animated BA, it'll be interesting to see in color. I do have to wonder why they decided to leave the wing fans on the Slipstream tho. Since they were already remolding her, why not go for a new wing design as well.

    Does Black Arachnia have her spider titties hanging off her beast mode head?

    Cause that's hilarious.

    The boob-shovels on the front of Blackarachnia's spider mode are hilarious.
