    Yeah, going to have to go with the deluxe Airachnid too.

    Eh, not really. Like Blackarachnia, both Harley and Catwoman sway between anti-hero and anti-villain, whereas Airachnid was pure 100% never gonna change never gonna give you up will definitely hurt you villain.

    It used to be Cybertron Override (mostly due to that stupid autotransform and weird proportions), but nowadays, I'd easily say Airachnid.

    You could have kept "femmebot" out of the title and still had the same posts you are seeing (especially concerning Airachnid).

    Thunderblast for the record.

    Since Airachnid is the runaway answer to any "What is the worst...?" question, outside of that mold...

    RotF Deluxe Chromia or RotF Human Alliance Arcee (which was basically Chromia's design in Arcee colors for some dumb reason).

    Windblade. The way nothing pegs together right in jet mode just ruins the figure for me. Picked her up ONLY because she was the Fan's Choice figure.

    I've honestly never understood all the hate Airachnid gets. She's not the best and should have been a Voyager, but she's at least better than Knock Out.

    Lots of hate for Airachnid. I've never seen the toy, so I looked it up, and it doesn't look too bad. Why all the hate?

    For me, the Bayformers ones look the worst.
    Other than those, it's Alternators Arcee, for some reason I find it awful.

    I think the Airachnid hate is mainly disappointment because in the cartoon she's this really cool villianess triple changer. She walks around with the upper body of a bot and the lower body of a spider in a funky cybertronian arachnid-centaur kind of way. And the toy failed to capture any of that. Was a shame because that's what people wanted. She'd of made a better voyager class figure. :) 

    The toy we got doesn't even have a spider mode. And she's all about being spidery.

    I've never seen the show, so thanks for that. I can totally see the issues now, as the toy image I saw was of a 'bot to heli mode only. What a strange marketing decision they made!

    Just to clarify, you all are hating on Thunderblast for being a bad Transformer, right? Because that is unfortunately true. Her 'bot design itself, however, is pretty cool.

    Yeah, pretty weird! Such a shame. Be cool if a 3rd Party lot did her justice but I'm not sure she's quite that popular to get one. Plus the to show isn't around anymore. Ah well.

    I can't say Airachnid because when I got her I did the Airachnid mods posted on Youtube that help make the figure a bit more awesome. I never got the totally bad experience the stock Airachnid came with.

    Thunderblast gets my vote. Shellformer all the way. Removing the shell part leaves a robot body that can't even transform a little! If her regular body could even transform just a little it would be a pass. Look at Classics Megatron for example. You could remove his wings and still transform him to resemble the idea of a gun! With Thunderblast that isn't even possible!

    She's ultra back heavy too. Hell, she can't even float on actual water! That would've been an awesome gimmick! So to all the Airachnid hate I say nah. Despite how she comes, Airachnid has way more going for her than that piece of crap Thunderblast!

    She's a horrible Transformer, yeah.

    She's essentially just a female body hidden inside of a bot hull.
