    The CyGirl PerfectDark Joanna Dark figure also had 'em squeezably soft. But it was a hollow skin layered over a regular hard torso with molded boobs under the hollow airpocket boobs. It basically ended up feeling like she had large cancer tumors in her boobs. 37year-old me was very disappointed...

    It's not like this is anything new. I tried to get into 1/6th scale figure collecting/creating using TBleague and similar bodies with silicone outer layers and metallic skeletons, partly because the idea of such hyper-articulated humanoid figures are cool, and partly because why should girls get all the fun of Barbies? She doesn't even get rocket launcher accessories. I also think the Playarts Kai figure of MSG Quiet had them? I dunno.

    The bottom line is that this ain't even anything remotely new for action figures. So whatever. It's a feature that I'd prefer BA not have because of a materials issue over anything else.

    So, any news on Rattrap? That's the figure I'm more interested in.

    @ samuel1239: it would be nice to be a mp ratio. @老翁陪你玩: I guess the video is about to be like Monday at the latest, let's have some fun. I think it's like that. [laughing] [laughing] how many years has it been? The Lightning and spider ratio finally coordinate [crying] [crying] is it easy to fly a dog? [like] @钢铁星 @Transform_Element”

    Video review is up. I don't mind partsforming for weapons, but this has a mix of the bad kind of partsforming, IE spider eyes come off and attaches back on as crotchplate in bot mode. Then the spider abdomen side panels don't seem to go back on at all for bot mode, at least not that this video demonstrated. The part that the crotchplate replaces never comes back into play either. This matches the pic in the first post with 3 parts laying at her feet.

    Don't mind the partsforming, since the extra pieces do make her look better in both modes.
    But why her crotch needs faux eyes is a mystery.

    Show-accuracy.

    I was thinking about getting this, but I think I'll be happy with mp-46.

    Nice. But she looks better without them. They draw too much attention to her boner imo.

    The MP will doubtless be a much better toy for botmode. This one makes too many compromises to be a substitute for an MP.
    But it will fit nicely in my chug collection.

    I don't get how people keep trying to put this with their MPs. Craziness.

    Same. I had zero interest in this prior because of the partsforming, but now I'm pondering it just to go with my older BW figs.

    Price dropped to $30 at ShowZ. A little better to handle

    This is a perfect replacement for the original Blackarachnia if you want to pair her up with Fuzor Silverbolt, but if you’re wanting a Masterpiece then stick with the official one.
