Re: PE-DX02 Aranea Motobot (BlackArachnia)

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about TF Knock Offs and 3rd party toys.

Looks like there are two faces. One with a closed mouth, and another opened. Or, the chin is making an illusion of an open mouth.

A blurred image?? Seriously????

Heard a whole lot of nothing from PE in quite some time. Disappointed this is all they have to show for themselves at this time. It's still looking cool though. Interesting name.

Looks like the same face to me.

Such a shame they blurr out the most important pic. I dont think it is exactly a spider mode for the robot. It's a spider mode for the kibble. I need a spider mode with the figure before I buy this mold again.

And why are her lips open ? Is she flirting with Hardbone ???

If you look closely you can tell she has a lower lip. That's a chinstrap.

So far I like it. But with everything else coming out this year this is at the bottom of my list.

I'm not sure if I'll snag her or not, but she does look pretty badass.

I was doing a bit of research on the concepts and prototypes for the unreleased Transtech line and came across something which I believe might be the basis for the design of this figure. It's Transtech Blackarachnia:

I could be wrong, but if you compare their helmets and bot modes with the legs, they look strikingly similar I think.

Wait ... is that really the full color version? With the all black face? Because it seems a little ... lacking when it comes to paint apps.

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.

You are correct. Black Arachnia in the Transformers Animated series was formerly Elita One.

Since Elita One has been repainted from Arcee (Energon and the Movies, IIRC) it makes sense to have this from PE. I would be all over this as I love the look. Alas, I already have PE pink Arcee and I am very happy to have her as Neo G1.

At least until Hasbro releases her next year. I'm just assuming here. I hope she's a convertible and not a bike...

I'm hoping the Kreon and her appearance on Metroplex's window herald a proper "return" same as little things like this a year back mean we've got a brand new triple changer Springer.

Beast Machines BA is my stand in for the character. She's not bad, but I did like the reviews of the first Motobots so am very tempted by this one. Want to see final colours before making a decision though.

You're right. Though Arcee got a spider-form in the Transformers Universe comics... can I use that as an excuse for my mistake?
