So let me just make a confession here: I haven't watched Transformers Prime. Yeah, I know. After Beast Machines, way back in the day, I was just kind of... no. There was a whole lot of no after that series, though. I like the glorious insane dumb of G1 and adore Beast Wars much more than I should, but... I've been tentative about watching anything else. I know, I know. But they all have humans in them and I'm not watching Transformers for the humans, y'know? But what I do know about Airachnid is that she's evil and kind of vicious, so clearly I was drawn to her. When I came across her in a comic book store for a very good deal, I couldn't just leave her there.
Especially because she's a purple and black helicopter. Even if her name makes me twitch a little. But there was this gorgeous sharp-edged viciousness and clearly she had to come home with me.
Anyway, she looks awesome as a helicopter. Flipping the, er, windshield open also reveals a single seat inside, which would not photograph so I decided screw it because I had better pictures to take.
The unfortunate thing is that she lacks some articulation. And by some I mean a lot. She's not completely stiff, but her elbows... don't do much. Her knees do at least bend, and she's got a lot of movement in her shoulders. Ultimately she's a very simple figure, but she still looks damn good.
