That's the US release. As far as we know they still haven't arrived in Europe.
Also, what the post above says. ;)

Airachnid says nothing to me. I don't want ANY Prime Bumblebees.
Dead End is still a maybe.. but I'd have to get rid of Wheeljack.

Hey Ryan, if you buy a second Airachnid, you can sorta-kinda make a closer approximation of her spider mode than what one Airachnid will permit. ;)

Thats Mad some third party developer must try and develop an addon kit as getting 2 Airachnid is not exactly easy or cheap for that matter but good work for showing the way

That's pretty sweet, with the two rotor sets.

Airachnid is definitely a flawed figure, but you did a great job of making her look good, Ryan. Nice work on the improvised spider mode! I was hoping something like that could be done.

Dead End looks cool but I don't need him.

Bumblebee is just going to be yet another shelfwarmer. I think many of us are just starting to despise him.

There's a talented guy on Shapeways who makes a bunch of Prime add-ons, including Blasters and Blades for both FE & RID Arcee, Blasters for Wheeljack, Swords for Prime, and Null-Rays and Missiles for FE Starscream. He also made Rumble/Frenzy, Ravage, and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw molds that work with Deluxe Generations WFC Soundwave. I hope he makes some replacement propellers.

There's also someone who's been making quite a few Cyberverse weapons. I don't remember if it's the same person as you're talking about or not. And as a random note, there's someone else who made some weapons specifically for Generations Warpath, that will peg into his hand while it's folded up and stick right out of his arm; there's a drill, hammer, rotor blade, and a few others.

Back on topic, that twin rotor thing you've mocked up is pretty great, Sabrblade!

Eirachnid, t'be sure, t'be sure. By which, I mean, that I still haven't found, what I'm looking for.


Passing on Failrachnid. Dead End is a thing of hideous beauty that I can't recommend highly enough. That Bumblebee still looks like a bin man, but that's slightly more appealing than the yellow menace I've been trained to hate by shelves after shelves of the yellow b@"^@&)s.

I cant read japanese, but I would love to do this. What are the specifications? Is it all pop on pop off? Can it still transform after that if you take the bonus pieces off?

looks like the rotors pop off and plug in where the gun...pincer...things...are. the rest appears to be the normal vehicle mode.

3 more reasons to skip this line, ill stick with wasting my money on video games and stuff on ebay. I just picked up 3 older but 100% complete transformers for less than it would cost for one prime deluxe. My collection still grows but hasblow gets none of my money.

I am not to pleased with this waves selection. Don't get me wrong, I like the characters Dead End and Arachnid, but Arachnid's mould leaves a lot to be desired. As for Dead End, a little less crazy color combo and I would buy him. He is a great mould, but the colors.......Negative ghost rider. The pattern is full.. :shock:

I am waiting for Voyager Breakdown, Dreadwing, Ultra Magnus, Nemesis Prime.

As for the Deluxes I will pass on this wave.

Airachnid looks okay but I still hope we get a Voyager. She deserves much better. Don't care about Dead End but his colors really work. That Bumblebee I'm actually surprised by. I won't be getting it but the deco really looks nice. I kinda wish he was that interesting looking in the show. Not a bad wave.

If you guys think Airachnid got the short end of the stick in her toy form, it gets worse for her Japanese portrayal.
n the Japanese dub of Prime, Airachnid's personality is completely different from her US interpretation. In the dub, she is a bubbly, giggling, high-strung chatterbox that is obsessed with collecting handsome boys as trophies. Played up as something of a female Pepe Le Pew, she constantly swoons over Jack, calling him her "hunk", her "darling", her "cutie Jack-chan" and various other lovey-dovey remarks as she amorously pursues him (even going so far as to sing love songs to him, mid-chase). While her sadistic qualities remain, she's played more like a creepy stalker girl than a vicious monster.

Redubbed.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Airachnid is way too small. Nice chopper, but the robot mode is pathetic.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I snagged Airachnid today at Target. Yes, the figure kind of sucks. But it is Airachnid; and probably the only one we're going to get. I'll be skipping the rest of this wave, though. Dead End and Yet Another Bumblebee aren't bad repaints; but they're not especially compelling, either.

Target's joined TRU in gouging on these figures. New price for Deluxes is $14.99; $24.99 for Voyagers. Ouch. If Airachnid weren't just one per case, I'd have waited to find her at Walmart.

(At this rate, Walmart's prices may be going up, too.)

I was also at Target a few days ago. While I didn't notice the price change to TFs, I did notice that the G.I. Joes and Marvel Universe figures were now $9.99. Which seems ridiculous, because at least the MU figures were sitting there for awhile at $7.99 - 8.49ea, increasing the price is going to get them to move faster?

Anyways, not sure if this will be indicative of the price points for the foreseeable future, but worth noting that it's not just TFs.
