With all the fem-bots from G1, wouldnt it be more logical to make her into Elita One, Flare-Up, Moonracer, etc ???
Maybe if they did extensive retools like this release. But i think this BlackArachnia is an original idea and looks pretty cool. That also isn't me saying that the other Fembots won't see a release from this mold either. Time will tell.
Black Arachnia is a character from the Beeast Wars era. If some 3rd party decided to make the Predacons or Terrorcons into "neo" vechicles, the fandom would send them to hell. So why have Black Arachnia as a bike ??? It's just dumb. I expect dumb from Hasbro (Cheetor and Quickstrike as cars, Air Razor as a jet) But from a 3rd party company I dont expect lame neo re-tools.
I think the logic is, Arcee has been released as a bike, and in Transformers Animated Arcee became Black Arachnia (even though Arcee wasn't a bike in that continuity), so it makes sense for her to be a repurposing of the mold.
On that note, while not a Black Arachnia fan (I found this because I'm a bike-bot addict), this is just too amazing looking. Really really cool stuff. This, in my opinion, is what re-tools of existing molds SHOULD be.
