MP-46 Blackwidow (aka Beast Wars Blackarachnia) is only a two weeks away from being released and we are now getting some in hand pics. We only have the robot mode for now and it is slightly mistransformed. The belly, for instance, should not have the spider eyes on it. We will share a better image below to show you what it looks like. Also, since people had asked, we take the opportunity to show the difference between initial images of the spider mode and a recent image which shows it much cleaner and more put together. These images come from Vector Sigma on Facebook.

Hopefully there aren't any problems like BW Megatron's crotch. Although I have no interest in getting this (financially) i do hope those that do get her are happy.

I starting to have the feeling that was an issue of the first batches. I got mine last month, transformed him several times to check that problem and so far (just some attention in handling the crotch section) everything is fine.

That as my reaction too but I guess she needs to be within scale in respects to everyone else.

I got my MP-43 pretty early on and everything is still good.

Same. As I said at the time, that ultra tight catch at the torso gave me more cause for concern than a bad batch of crotches.

Hopefully with some decent retooling, they can fix this woeful Beast Mode with MP Tarantulas.

Her got her a bit mistransformed through the review, but fixes it a bit in the pics at the end, like how her hips slide up in robot mode a bit.

no. tarantulus needs a completely different mold. its fine to have some similar elements since the original toys were just repaints, but their show models and scale to one another were too different for them to do a retool for their masterpiece representations. would be the same for tigertron since he was way taller then cheetor in the show

Agreed, none of the BW MPs should be retools.

I’d be more forgiving of Tigatron being a retool of Cheetor, but Tarantulas and Blackarachnia are too different.

Yes, essentially while sharing some engineering, Tarantulas and Tigatron will be bigger molds, bigger figures. What I mean is specifically regarding the execution of the Spider Mode. They do transform in the same way, so hopefully HasTak won't think improvements don't need to be made further down the line for Tarantulas.

got ya. agree there. but I think tarantulus would be easier to make less kibbly, given his bulky/chunky robot mode and less bulbous spider abdomen. more room for panels really.

It is strange to see that within the first line of Beast Wars figures, most of the Predacon bugs were much better executed designs than the Maximal Beast Modes. Yet, fast forward to the Masterpiece collection and the first MP bug looks to be the worst Beast Mode so far :???:

Not so sure about that. I still really dislike Cheetor's execution. Unlike Blackarachnia, Cheetor actually has extraneous kibble sticking out that look like tumours coming out f his legs. Blackarachnia at least tries to make it work with the overal shape.

Just my opinion of course.

While I don't dislike Cheetor, I do feel he suffers from being their first attempt at a mp beast wars figure. the full body coating of paint is what gets me with him, because it really does not work well with the figures tolerances. My cheetor is actuall falling apart at all the pin joints due to the stress caused by the paint inside the joints ive already had to glue his wrist back together. heres hoping blackarachnia is not destined to follow his example.
