Botcon attendees were treated to a special sneak previewing of the episode, now it makes its U.S. CartoonNetwork debut this Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  As you might have guessed it does feature a certain 8-legged fem-bot!  What did you think of the show?

Maybe there are some out there who wanted to wait for it to come on Cartoon Network instead of watching it on the tiny Youtube screen. Not me though I watched it on there and watched it again today. My wife said she likes Blackaracnia.

Blackarachnia. That one will get spelled wrong quite a bit. I liked the episode because it featured Grimlock and Prime learning from each other.

It was okay I really hope blackarachnia turns good.

It was an interesting episode, I'll give it that much. Interesting to see "young Dinobots in love". I kinda like Blackarachnia as kind of the outsider with villanous intent. I could see her becoming an anti-hero at best, but if the writers decide to flip her character to being totally good it will cheapen everything she's been through and the events that made up her current psychology.

Due to this episode, and other with BA, I was messin' around with my TF:A figs and wound up taking my Deluxe Cyb. Mode Prime and BA figs and positioned them in a "making out" set up. Once I get a Grimlock figure, and Sentinel in the near future, i'll position them fighting over who's gonna kill Optimus for "stealing their girl-bot".

I just loved this episode. My favorite line in it was by Grimlock: "He did it."

I actually watched this just yesterday online because I never got around to it before, I also watched Sari, No one's home but I won't comment on that now since it still hasn't aired here yet. There is nothing wrong with waiting, if you choose to watch them immediately on Youtube then that is your choice, some people prefer waiting to see it on TV (it isn't a dead art yet). Also the tiny youtube screen can be maximized to full screen. I go a higher quality route by watching them on Veoh. People usually upload quickly and it is good quality.

My favorite part was Bumblebee and Prowl's bet, which I would say Prowl technically won since Bumblebee was paralyzed but I know he'd never let it go.

off topic: there is a Matrix for Classics Prime in the making right now (

Ah, deleting comments with opinions that disagree with the poster. Well done.

I like how Grimlock kept demanding the "Thingy"and how he called Blackarachnia "Spider-lady".
Trypticon said,  - 2008-06-22 20:37:24
I Like when Blackarachnia said "I want to be free of this accursed organic form" which is Beast Machines Megatron was always saying. Interesting.

The first time I saw this show, I got too hung up on the whole Grimlock in love with Blackarachnia.

For the record, I am very much in favor of having "female" Transformers. Especially as the father of a daughter who LOVES Blackarachnia and Arcee. In fact I wish they'd make more fem bots. The problem is, I am also very much against romance between bots. Why can't there be the portrayal of gender, without romance?

Anyway, after I got over my disappointement with the pseudo-romance aspects of this show, I loved it. Much better the 2nd and 3rd time viewing.

Grimlock walking through city streets... awesome. Further explanation of where and what Blackarachnia has been up to lately... The Grimlock/OP dialog was teriffic.

I hope that Blackarachnia doesn't turn good.

What do you guys suppose Blackarachnia would do after she's restored to normal (that is, IF she ever is)?
Cheetor2 said,  - 2008-06-22 22:12:20
So I left out a letter, sue me. I also love the whle OP/Grimlock diolog. I am slowly turning my wife into a fan. I bought her Blackarachnia tonight and she just loves the Decepticons in general. I even put the Decepticon logo on her side of the car. and her side of the computer room is where I am displaying all my Cons. I think it's great because when we met, she had absolutly no interest. Cool.

Show your wife some BW and BM, those series had the other Blackarachnia in it (though, the latter had her as a Maximal rather than a Predacon - she defected).
Skyfire said,  - 2008-06-23 11:52:12
Sabrblade, I suppose she'll be an Autobot.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-06-23 13:12:35
But do you think she would go back to being a GOOD Autobot, or would she stay as her dark self doing whatever she wants.
