It's been their marketing push since the end of Revolution. For some reason.

^ Sorry..meant to say Turning "Elita-1" into Blackarachnia?...fixed my post. Would be interesting if they connect this back to Tarantulas appearance in Sins of The Wreckers somehow...

That was my thought exactly when I saw the cover.

I hope Elita-1 is not airachnid. I'd prefer Airachnid be a character from Eukaris and a mnemosurgeon at that, not an imposter

I feel like based of of the cover and description, starscream and company are using airachnid to manipulate blast-off through onslaught.

It's also possible she's fully necessary, seeing as how it was noted the Combaticons are brain damaged thanks to combining with a brain dead bot and then being shot in the combined mode head. So maybe a mnemosurgeon Airachnid is needed to penetrate the brain damage

Yep, I've said it before but the market potential if they can get Joe to be relevant again is worth the risk in making a push.

That said, if you feel this is Megatron making his big push and you've gotta push back, then keep at it Springer my boy, help's at hand! :HEADHURTS:
