Didn't expect to see Blackarachnia so soon, so this is a welcome surprise. Very on-model to the Mainframe CGI.

Silvery (11 days ago) #50980282Yeah. Thankfully, nowadays such people are being more and more forced to deal with the fact that female TFs exist and there's more than a handful of them. :D And I'm glad that the toy/figure companies are starting to realize that, too. Please give us Airazor next, Takara! I wouldn't mind an Arcee repaint of this Blackarachnia, either (I mean, technically, it should be a repaint of Transmetal Blackarachnia, but BW Blackarachnia looks way better).

I'm sure we'll get Airazor if the line keeps going strong and doing well. I'm also glad we now have a Predacon to go with Megatron. Still waiting on a Rattrap to replace the generations one with it's exploding knees.

OptimalGorilla (11 days ago) #50959774Yeah growing up with Beast Wars I've never understood the hatred of female Transformers. It always came off as extremely childish and or pedantic.

Silvery (11 days ago) #50953048Oh, I feel you, though in my case I was turned off mostly by the aforementioned manbabies who also frequently happen to be bigots (yeah, it's mostly about IDW; also, the majority of the fandom in my country is even worse than the worst people on the biggest TF sites). Thankfully, I found a couple of quiet corners with nice people. And I think I happened to be mostly lucky in my encounters with the more... enthusiastic slash fans. View spoilerHide spoilerThough I still laugh and am disturbed when I remember the ol' great /y/ shitstorm about the types of junk male TFs should and shouldn't have... not sure which was worse, that or a guy (& his fans) who wrote a whole weirdly fetishistic book about TF biology (which meant focusing mostly on procreation, of course) and who had pictures of female TFs from G1 with added glowing boobs full of energon on his deviantArt page. I guess it also helps that I don't mind most of the TF pairings, slash or not? I just dislike it when people deliberately forget that there are female characters (not to mention the whole gender argument, but this is not the place for writing an essay on misguided TF fans).
And yeah, I've also seen whining about Beast Wars, and I'm always amazed by that. If someone doesn't like Blackarachnia's boobs so much, they are free to remember that Airazor (except the Transmetal one) doesn't have any. And that, say, TFA or IDW Blackarachnia don't have any, either. Hell, most female Transformers have, at the very best, armour that suggests more traditionally feminine shapes rather than boobs!

Silvery (11 days ago) #50952520I don't remember her having so pronounced nipples. But, well, to each their own; I don't collect MPs, anyway. (Though I might be tempted if they make Perceptor, Airazor and/or a couple of more obscure characters.)
Re: fandom reaction, I usually see such reactions from people (mostly gals) who like TF slash and from people (mostly guys) who think that girls have cooties and that female Transformers were a mistake - and these two groups overlap greatly. :P


Yeah it looks like there a bit too pronounced. I'm trying real hard to look through screenshots but due to their quality it's hard to tell if she had those in the show or not cause I don't think they were entirely rounded off.

Still a lot of the fandom is just "boobs bad cause they robots" but that also ignores the hilarious fact that the Beast Wars crew were bio-mechanical robots after they took on beast modes. Hell Waspinator and Inferno's beast modes were female.

You're right though a lot of it is slash and manbabies. I'm just so incredibly tired of the fandom after years of bologna and going to a con in 2016 where I heard people complain about Legends Blackarachnia while passing around a gay noncon doujin of male characters in an area where kids were present.

OptimalGorilla (11 days ago) #50952329She's screen accurate which means she has boobs and boobs are evil so sayeth the fujoshi fanbase that has infested the fandom. Also that's just how she looked in the show.

Silvery (11 days ago) #50952313Awesome! I just wish her boobs didn't look so weird. ._.
What kind of salt? Gotta say, haven't seen any (yet?) in the TF-related online places I frequent.

If it was a brand new character I'd be in full agreement but that's just how she looked and this line is about complete and total screen accuracy down to the derpy beast modes.

OptimalGorilla (11 days ago) #50944668Can't wait for this to take a year to come out.
Also the salt this has generated from TF fans already is hilarious.
