    I'd love to jump all over the Hasbro guys who made this, but honestly I can sympathize. That transformation is really hard to do and still be up to safety standards. Everything is so thin, and the dinky little chopper alt-mode sucks all of her color out. So the bad news is the deluxe looks like an up-scaled cyberverse commander, but the good news is if the cyberverse version is anything like this it'll be pretty good.

    There is something very appealing about that Dead End. I want it pretty badly, but I don't know why.

    Airachnid sucks and what the heck were they on when they came up with Deadend?
    Why not Runamuck/Runabout or both?

    Airachnid is ok, I wasn't expecting miracles, they were faced with a damn near impossible task and they delivered as best they could. She's not a must have for me anyway, I'll grab her if I ever see her over here.

    Because it's silly to repaint a moderately well-known white car into a completely unknown white car?

    I love Airachnid! She pretty much has an impossible transformation in the show and I think Hasbro did a great job bringing her to toy form.

    I think if the blades folded in half onto themselves in heli mode & split (even if by just a rotational hinge) - the legs could work.

    Yer right - I think this is the perfect project for either a 3rd party or Shapeways.

    Well atleast the demand for the shortpacked Airachnid is down.

    Will Prime get a Dead End, since there's a toy?

    I don't know how Aorachnid got so terrible. The opening cockpit ruined the design. Even I have a simple way to make the blades work.

    Dead End, he is my most sought after now. Next to the Vehicon, though.

    Im taking a guess and Saying there is no way to make Airachnid have her "spider" robot mode, it'd make since for all the kibble in standard robot mode to make her thorax and the helicopter blade "legs" have Ball joints and hinge joints. Just a theory...

    Easy pass on both. Dead End is one of the ugliest toys I think I've ever seen.
