Blog #161: Toy Review: Transformers Prime Deluxe Airachnid

Transformers Prime Deluxe Airachnid: This is the first use of this mold (and hopefully the last).

Vehicle Mold: If you take the weapons off, the vehicle doesn’t look too bad.  It’s very show accurate.  Unfortunately, it suffers from a lack of anything even vaguely resembling landing gear. With the weapons, it looks just stupid.

 Robot Mode:  What can I say?  This is one of the worst Transformers toys ever.  It’s on par with Universe Deluxe Tankor (maybe it’s even worse).  It’s a steaming pile of dung.  That’s about as clear as I can make it.  Her legs look like they are only half as wide as they should be.  Her arms are too flat, and her hands are a joke.  They should have made this toy a Voyager and completely redesigned it.  I don’t know why they wanted to go to the trouble of making her a spider that becomes a helicopter.  It would have been so much better if they had just eliminated the spider elements all together.  The head sculpt is nice, but that’s about the only positive thing I can say about this turkey.  It is very disappointing.  I was really looking forward to this one.  It’s going to be the hardest to find in the assortment, which makes it doubly terrible that you’ll have to actually work to track this down.

Thanks for reading!
