    IMO, the BA mold still needs work. Those spikes on the back and legs need to go, and I hope they smooth out the "Animated" angular look for a more realistic spider mode. Also, claw hands. Wouldn't be that hard.


    Still, I'm all-in for these.

    More Fem-bots, that's great! NightBird was unexpected, but I wonder if Elita-One, MoonRacer, & FireStar, re-molds are possible, or at least a Paradron Medic repaint. I'd buy all of those from an Arcee or Chromia mold. I'm not overly fond of the WindBlade mold, but I want to see SlipStream in color. This set looks promising, but I doubt this will be inexpensive.

    You can swivel the blades on her arms around.

    That's...something.

    Is the plastic for Black Arachnia supposed to be the weird see-through? Or will it have colour over it?

    Because a see-though Black Achania robo-bra would be the most hilarious and yet most Japanese thing ever made :lolol

    Argh, so close, and yet so far. Slipstream's head looks off to me, and Blackarachnia's titty mandibles are 100% pure "why".
    Ironically, the one that looks the best is also the one I have no interest in.
    I'll wait to see the coloured versions before making a decision, I guess. I hope BA has a little of her Animated version in her colour scheme, though knowing Takara...

    For me personally I can't understand why anyone would want Arcee with her pink swapped out for green as a nobody rather than someone with some significance that has very different colors and new tooling.

    Nightbird and Slipstream Sweet!

    I'm happy enough using animated BA though.

    It's just the prototype plastic. The final version would likely be painted. I don't think she'd have transparent/translucent plastic.

    God I hope not. I have a Animated BA already, I want this to be a BW BA I've been waiting for a proper screen accurate BA since she first appeared in the '96 and this is the closest we've ever gotten to getting it.

    Full on Black & Gold or gtfo.
