The spider alt mode for the upcoming Masterpeice MP-46 Blackwidow (aka Beast Wars Blackarachnia) has received a lot of flack from fans but we never get a good look at it in the images, which constantly give us more of the bot mode, and for good reason as it looks spectacular. However, some additional images from the Malaysia Asia Comic Con give us our best look yet at the spider beast mode, especially the back, so you can see how clean it can be when transformed properly. We also get a good view of the back of Blackarachnia.

Here are all the images we have from the event so far. Some coming from Andrew, who sent them in, and others found on the Planet Iacon Facebook page.

I'd have to see comparison pics to when it was mistransformed, but it still looks pretty rough to me in spider mode. The robot mode look insanely amazing, but at the cost of making the beast mode look pretty bad.

In this picture, it looks like her spider mode could potentially be a Titan Class Headmaster. I can't unsee it!

For that kick-ass bot mode, the spider mode is not so bad.

Image
One of the mode must make some compromises to accommodate the other and it's normal that here, it's the bot who won.

Thank you for this GIF! I see some mass-shifting shenanigans going on with her "hands" as they become the spider-mode's mandibles. I've started watching Beast Wars again and I've never noticed this during the show.

She'll be going into bot mode rather quickly when I get her. And honestly, considering the cheats BW did? Spider-mode looks about as good as we'll get.

"Cheats" is an understatement.

Super excited to eventually get her! She does look really good in robot mode, and I do love the stand

I think the fact that the robot mode is 150% perfect and the spider mode is 80% perfect is pretty damn perfect. I mean come on, how can anyone conceivably believe there’s a better way to achieve an actual inflation in plastic form? The fact that the spider mode is as good as it is is nothing short of amazing. I think the naysayers have absolutely unreasonable expectations of a physical object. They’re probably the same people that go out to eat on a Saturday Night with a party of 14 and get upset because they have to wait for a table big enough when they didn’t call ahead to make a reservation.

It was the best word to come to mind at the moment, but yeah. There's some serious reality-warping with Blackarachnia in the show.

I see a lot of comments about mass shifting or reality warping... and that is exactly why I tend to dislike the toys that make an extreme effort to be "show accurate". Something gets sacrificed somewhere to pull it off, from fake wheels and pretend windshields to overly complicated (and often therefore fragile) transformations, we usually end up with a less than perfect toy. Often one mode looks great, while the other is less so.

In my humble opinion, it is better to just focus on making a good toy with good articulation and a good transformation, and let the show focus on being the show.

Or, if the TOY$ would be designed first and the show be based on them. Best example,Cybertron / Galaxy Force

I think a combination of both of your ideas. These are toys and ultimately going to be purchased by kids as well so the 'toy' component or 'fun' factor should be the primary concern above accuracy. And if the cartoons are still to be used as commercials for the toys then the developers of the toon should work hand in hand with the toy developers so accuracy is a given.

That being said, this Blackarachnia (Blackwidow) looks pretty amazeballs all things considered.

Here are pics of it not being properly put together in beast mode. You can see the back of the spider just panels hanging loose.

I bet some 3P or Shapeway guy will make a butt-spider shell to cover this up.

Thirded. It's really a damned good toy overall. I can't wait to get her in-hand.
