Really need to see her next to Primal and Cheetor to see how her scale works. While I still wish she had some panels to cover more of her legs in spider mode; the more I see of her, the more I want her... which sounds really creepy stalkerish. :oops:

Somebody say something before about her being the wrong size? ;)

The first pictures we saw of her made it look like she was taller then cheetor, almost the same height as primal. but that easily could be a trick of the camera angles. also it was still a painted prototype, and may have been bigger then the final product will be.

I have a MIGHTY NEED!

For real, this might be the first BW MP I buy. It helps of course that given that she's a giant spider, there's no need to worry about alt-mode scale (and thus she can fit in basically any display you want) and that she's probably one of my favourite Transformers characters ever. I kinda wish she'd come out before the time I went to TFNation though, so I could have gotten her or her box signed by Venus Terzo. Oh well, maybe if I get a time machine (or I see her at another con)...

I have such mixed feelings about this. I love Beast Wars, so I'm excited to see the characters get Masterpiece toys. However, I cant help but be disappointed that it didn't happen before Masterpieces started costing $1x10⁴⁴ a piece. At this point I've stopped collecting the line because I just can't keep up with the prices. :(

This is the only one I am impatiently waiting on. Chiefly because I want to get her out of the way so I see characters I actually want to buy.

Nah not at all Immortal Starscream that's not stalkery- that's just poetic romanticism, with an edge. Like, a sharp dangerous edge ;)

Considering the line is theoretically only 14 characters...

^I would have preferred Him, about 8 characters before her. Putting BA at the very tail end of the MP Beast Wars line, alongside Airazor and Scorponok.

I think it's the wrong size for the price.

She'll seem taller once Megs there collapses in agony from a broken crotch.

This. 100%

Although smaller than Cheetor, price-wise, she is in-between Optimus Primal and Dinobot, with no justification whatsoever.

I'd imagine the excuse would be increased parts count, increase in the cost of resources used to make her and the stand. The more real reason could just be that they know people will pay the price and so just focus on them, writing off all those who rather have more bang for their buck, or have a more streamlined release with a reduced price (no stand).

Of course the truth behind her price could be even stranger then we could think.

MP Dinobot was last year. There is no way in hell there was even a noteworthy enough increase in the cost of resources within less than 12 months, that had to be passed on to the customer. I am also extremely dubious that she has a higher parts count than anyone else previously.

As for these stands, worthless chunks of plastic that they are. I do find their sudden, compulsive inclusion really suspicious too. As I imagine, HasTak are well aware that if they sold them as two separate price points - with or without the stand - Less than half of collectors would pay the inflated price.

Maybe if he kept his mouthy hand to himself she wouldn’t have had to break it :lol:

The stand and web accessory isn't justification for the price?

Quite frankly no. It is a cheap looking, easily produced display stand. It still shouldn't price her above Cheetor, as I'm sure the price should be relative to the figure, not the accessories?

But nothing's free. I dont like the price either and I would much rather pay cheaper and have less accessories. But I dont think this release as a whole would make sense to be cheaper than cheetor when you get more stuff.

agreed, but also isn't that stand supposed to light up? I thought it said in her details release that that something lit up on her. Though honestly, I would be more for the stands being sold separately. the pegs seem to work for most retail figures. They are connectable, modular and customizable. Takatomy would just need to make some optional colors, like ark orange, nemesis purple, etc, and I would buy a bunch of them. given they were at a decent price.

one thing to consider though, is geometric tolerances for something like a mp figure have to be exceptionally high. On a smaller figure, this could lead to more parts failing qc, more waste which in turn would mean a higher production cost.
