How come a legends figure has an infinitely better spider mode than the official masterpiece
It looked like there was a bit of partsforming involved
Where? it looks clean, i'll be sad if there is
You can see the leftover parts from the spider mode’s abdomen in the prototype pics in the first post of the thread.
That being said, it may be possible to leave them on, although that does mean extra kibble in the robot mode. I’m fine with that though. For me, a little kibble is better than partsforming. Might be in the minority on that though.
Yeah that just does not compute for me. If it’s designed as a partsformer then I’d imagine leaving those pieces on will look horrendous. I believe they plug into the side of her thighs and they’re pretty large curved pieces so the best you could hope for is that it just looks like BA is wearing a big puffy skirt- like Rhinox.
I'm fine with horrendous personally, as long as I can leave them on. Partsforming, even on a toy this small, seems lazy.
Lazy may be a tad harsh given the character in question. Blackarachnia’s mass shifting transformation is physically impossible. The MP made certain sacrifices which have displeased a fair few (I’m not one of them- I love everything about that figure) and I think that’s near twice the size of this one. If anything I’d say parts-forming on a smaller figure is more acceptable just because there’s less capacity for folding panels and internal storage etc.
But I know peoples opinions on the subject are pretty much set in stone so I’ll just say that I hope you can get some enjoyment out of this toy because these little legends figures look like they’ll provide us with a lovely pocket sized collection eventually.
However, as they went the parts-forming route with BA, you’d better believe Terrorsaur’s entire wingspan will be detachable.
I'll probably still enjoy it. I'm a massive Legends nutter, and I'll get this regardless. If it's mandatory, I'll probably figure out some way to modify it to work better.
Like I said; I'm in the minority on that.
I do hope they do a Terrosaur though...or better yet, a DEPTH CHARGE!
Is the implication here that Blackarachnia has smooshy rubber boobs? Hope I'm misinterpreting that!
Finally some interesting third party news.
My bankaccount is ready when you are, Transform Elements.
Or Rattrap has smooshy rat ears!
I have MP Blackarachnia on pre-order, but I might just sell it as soon as I get in in favour of this. Also fits better with the rest of my collection.
I do hope that BA doesn't have soft boobs, unless it's needed for transformation, and even then.
So are people saying smooshy boobs are bad because of the degradation rate of the material?
I always suspected Blackarachnia had silicone boobs; this just confirms it!
They both look great however. Rattrap is especially on-point. This should make for a beautiful collection adjacent to the MPs.
The soft chest area isn’t really ideal because any paint they add won’t last long- it also looks like BAs missing the spider leg detail that should be there along with the Pred insignia.
These look like hand painted protos though so maybe they’ll keep on developing apps & how to apply the finer details- but if they omit them- I can easily let it pass at this scale.
You’re not going to get any insignias. These are still third party and every TF related faction symbol is trademarked.
It feels like forever since the last update; they both look good. I would like to see pre-orders soon to get an idea of the prices.
Down side to how long it is taking TFE is that it will probably be long wait for the next figure in their lineup to be released.
Holy crap do I want to see her next to NewAge's Insecticons.
