For our next Transformers gallery update, we’re staying in Japan but coming right up to date, with a look at a recent Japanese release. Takara-Tomy last month released a set of three female Transformers as a part of their Generations line, Transformers Legends, and one of these was a pseuso-Beast Wars Classics release, Blackarachnia.
Blackarachnia is a remolded version of Transformers Animated Blackarachnia, with a new head and chest designed to emulate the look of the character in the Beast Wars series in both of her modes. Even though the mold on the toy remains about 80% the same as the Animated character, the remolding makes it easy to look past this. The robot mode is not completely accurate to the Beast Wars show model, but it comes incredibly close, and it is nice to see Blackarachnia given the Classics treatment.
Check out our full gallery of Blackarachnia for over 100 pics of this great new release from Takara-Tomy:
