    I feel like the robot mode face paint is a "mileage" issue. Because a lot of the pictures I've seen (as well as my own copy) have looked fine.

    Also, this is just my own curiousity, what texture would you want the spider bits to look like? Because I believe "gross and highly venemous" were what they might have been going for with BA

    I think like black widow spider, maybe. Maybe they could have looked at I don’t know, the spider she is based on?

    I see a lot of bumps and hairs that wouldn't translate as clearly as you would think to plastic. It could be this was the best they could do. Without knowing the details in production and plastic tolerances, I can't say for sure.

    Is there a trick to getting her robot hands to stay pegged into her feet so the arms stay in place? Mine keeps dropping out so her body sags lower to the ground as the spider legs fall upwards a bit due to the robot arms not being plugged in securely.

    I really like her though. She's a cool figure, if feels a bit delicate in places.

    I think this is the first BA I’ve genuinely liked a lot. The Animated figure was my favorite up until now but even that one wasn’t a high point of that line for me.

    She’s delightfully creepy.

    Does anyone happen to know if the front half of her head is black or yellow plastic underneath all that paint? The right hand side of mine's head as a big ol' yellow mark over the black and I was thinking about using alcohol to remove it but didn't want to accidentally remove any black paint.

    I was coming here after getting her today to say something like this but you put it perfectly!

    I was just getting her to fill the BW cast. Surprise! She has a silky-smooth transformation and great articulation in both modes. Everything just WORKS. Feels like there were absolutely zero compromises.

    The Predacon symbol is slightly off center on mine but there are no design / joint QC issues to speak of otherwise, so I'll take it.

    Same here. I do think it was my fault since I was putting too much pressure trying to tab it in when it wasn't aligned perfectly. Fortunately, as you said, it doesn't affect the transformation at all.

    Only thing wrong with my copy is one of the legs doesn't snap into place so have to use a bit of friction to keep the legs in place in spider mode. Other than that I really like the transformation

    Got mine in today, and there were stress marks near the heel joint out of the box.
    Is that from poor QC or the plastic ties being too tight?

    Thanks to my buddy James over on facebook, I finally got a Kingdom Blackarachnia.

    She's absolutely perfect sculpt-wise. has a decent amount of poseability. i just wish her feet could be posed in more natural looking running and kicking poses is all.

    Also wish she had her gold/copper colored spider legs like in the show. but man everything about this toy is fantastic.

    Got mine today. The increased price of deluxes is making me really upset but she’s a really nice interpretation of the character. The lack of forward movement on the legs is really frustrating though. Aside from that I think she’s excellent for a deluxe.

    The price increases are making me consider just dropping deluxe and focus on just voyagers or leaders that I like.

    It's really tough because soooo many characters get released as deluxes, but $20 was pretty much the limit of what I felt was worth it for most deluxes I've bought in the last year or two. I think transformers figures generally do very well at the voyager size/price so it's not the worst idea to just focus on those (and cool leaders if they come out too).

    Got a new one and the chest piece tab broke on this one too, I wonder if it's just bad QC luck on my end or if every copy has this problem.

    Had it happen on both my copies, and on the first transformation too. Thankfully it doesn't seem to affect anything though :) 

    I think the tab is just very weak itself and any pressure added will cause it to stress/break off. ... But yeah, good thing it doesn't do anything adverse to either modes :cool:

    Which tab? I had no idea and kinda forced that chest piece under the thorax for the spider mode. I guess that's a bad idea?

    It's just the tab that connects the chest plate to the bot torso.

    I found mine broke when going from bot to spider mode. ... It was quite difficult to pry out the first time and when I did both times it came out stressed and then just fell off when I tried to reattach it.

    Nothing major, thankfully. And it doesn't seem to be on all copies out there either. Just something to keep an eye out for :)
