    I might actually order this figure. With it being Legends, it's scaled a bit closer to how I envision Beast Wars compared to the rest of the CHUG figures.

    Anybody remember back when Transformers collectors actually liked & collected CHUG scale? When CHUG scale was the norm?

    This looks pretty cool, but looking back on the first posts it looks like she’s actually a partsformer? But still, this looks pretty good.

    Yes, but figures have shrunken since then. Now voyagers are the same same as then CHUG deluxe, etc. I am still actively buying what is now being considered "CHUG", especially TR/Legends, and I'll be buying this figure too.

    I’m really curious as to what extent that is true. It looks like she has panel covers for the abdomen, to cover her legs and make the whole thing smoother. If that’s the case, I don’t mind and it’s actually a feature I wish the MP had.

    I think they look good. Not sure if I'll bite... I'm getting the Legends scale Op Op and Dragon Megatron but these figures don't coincide with that time of the show. They might work with Robotmasters Optimus Primal and Megatron.

    I still do CHUG scale, didn't get into MP because of the size. I prefer legends scale though..also because of the size. I like to pose them on display, instead of just line them up. I also consider CW Sky Lynx as Legends Scale :)

    Hasbro had to fuck up somewhere.
    Of course they fucked up twice in Siege.

    I won't be getting Blackarachnia, but I'm definitely considering getting Rattrap.

    Now that I think about it, it might not be a bad idea to collect Legends scale Beast Wars figures.

    That's the size that I think is most apropos for CHUG.

    How is that not the worst kind of partsforming? At least some figures will find a way to reuse the parts into kibble or weapons. Her parts are supposed to just be brushed to the side? Crap.

    I’m wondering if taking off her arms and switching the upper arms is going to be the only way to recreate the iconic “machine guns from the spider legs” thing?

    It’s better than the legs just being blatantly visible, which is what the MP decided to do. At least this way I have the option of using the panels to hide them.

    I really wish the company had enough time and energy to rework the chest area. As is, the proportions there are a deal breaker for a toy that would have otherwise been a must-buy. Proportions and face-sculpt are critical to most collectors. Make it or break it.
