    Wow. More fembots... Not sure if I'll be getting them though. I'll definitely pass on Nightbird and Slipstream (I already ordered the Prime mold of her). If anything caught my eye it's BA; she's definitely the more 'goofy' of the three. LOL.

    These look nice. Can't wait to see what Takara does with color!

    About Slipstream, the turbines should be removed. Those things aid in making Windblade's identity.

    Blackarachnia looks like a retool of the Animated version. If the color scheme and design looks good I'd still grab the upgrade.

    ......So the question now is will Hasbro continue to bombard us with CW repaints until it's no longer enjoyable next year or will they actually mix it up like Takara is doing with solo characters!

    I've been hoping for a version of Slipstream, ever since she appeared in Animated. This is looking more and more like the Year of the Fembots.

    Now then, where's Nautica?

    Yeah they should've made the wings different but whatever. The figure is still long over due in the country it was first introduced in.

    YES! Blackarachnia is NOT a Chromia repaint! I love the re-tooling they've done.
    Even though I dislike getting Takara releases, I will jump on this one without even a second thought.

    Me personally, I think it's stupid. Hopefully it's mistransformed.

    I see and understand your point, however, and correct me if I'm wrong, Nightbird only appeared in one episode, just like Paradron Medic. So it has the same relevance as Nightbird.

    Loving TakTom and their remold game...

    Wonder if their are other fembots on the list for this treatment...there are a couple of molds that could easily be retooled into Firestar...Elita will likely be a new Voyager or be a pretool of Cybertron Overide...neither deserve to be Arcee retools or repaints...almost any RID Bumblebee could be retooled as an acceptable G2 Nightracer...Moonracer could get retooling from a rumored legends class Wheelie, if he has a futuristic alt as he should...

    Wow! OK. I didn't expect them to remold all 3 figures. Maybe a new head or 2. But new heads and chests all around. And weapons too? If Night-Bird and Slipstream are any indication, hopefully BA will get a new weapon as well in the style of her BW counterpart.

    The fact that it looks like the spider mouth turns into the robot boobs makes me laugh. As if the Animated Blackarachnia wasn't already ripe with sexual innuendo.

    I thought Blackarachnia would be an Animated retool that will likely be in BW colours. What I wasn't expecting was retooling her to have tits. Also, Slipstream looks great, especially with those Seeker cannons.


    Thank you Takara.

    You were saying......?!! :D  ;) 

    Gah! Extensive retools Hasbro will NEVER ever do, like ever. So, yeah.. I guess I'm going to get Takara stuff from now on. None of that Hasbro shit.

    I can't wait to see what kind of madness Takara pulls off with Victorion.

    Knowing Takara chances are they're going to remould it into Elita-1 and her team.
