Up for your viewing enjoyment, we have the latest wave of Transformers Prime Deluxe figures that will soon be gracing your local store shelves. These figure are in wave 4 and include Airachnid, Dead End, and Shadow Strike Bumblebee.

Airachnid is a brand new mold and the first for this fan favorite character. Dead End is a repaint/remold of Wheeljack that sports a new head sculpt and a wild paint job. Awaiting in the shadows is Shadow Strike Bumblebee with a brand new stealthier color scheme.

Airachnid looks rather nice, and Dead End uses the mold quite well. Bumblebee can go ______

I may end up modding the heck out of Airachnid to get her 3rd 'beast' mode.

I'm pretty sure it can be done, but I'll probably have to extend her blades/spider legs a bit and I may have to break her waist/legs to do it. I guess that means I'll be buying an extra one of these (one to break, one to leave intact), though I am also getting the Takara version of her, so once it's in hand as well, I may just decide to mod the Hasbro version (assuming it does break the figure) and keep the Takara one in normal bot mode or stealth helicopter mode.

Dead End: that's a really good re-paint remold  , Airachnid: kinda Really sh!tty looking, Shadow Strike Bumblebee: you can go f#ck yourself, bumblebee peddlers . Otherwise great galleries, you actually made that Airachnid figure look better(ish) Hopefully she'll get a better figure down the line

Though I'm a little disappointed in Airachnid's 'bot mode, I'll still end up buying her on sight because to me ANY fembot is a good buy. I think what bothers me most is the near-complete lack of articulation in her hands. And I never thought I'd say this, but her face without the purple "lipstick" she sports on the show is too plain. With the purple lips she looks more evil.

Any version of Bumblebee that is ACTUALLY Bumblebee is an easy pass for me.

Dead End......I like the new head (it's actually pretty creepy/cool), but the colors make him look like a refugee from 1979. Too bright and garish for my tastes.

Excellent job on the galleries, though!

I'm liking that hideously garish Dead End probably more than I should; he reminds me so much of Halloween. Doesn't have a place with any of my TFs, but I got plenty of other hideously garish toys he can hang with.


No interest whatsoever in Aitachnid or BB.

Airachnid...nice face sculpt, but a pity it's attached to such a bad toy.

Still wondering what makes Hasbro think painting Bee in black will convince kids want to buy him as second time.

Not sure what to make of Dead End.

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.
