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.

Is TFP completely reanimated in Japan? Or just redubbed?

Redubbed.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

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.
