  1. Blackarachnia's weapon gimmick in action:


    An analysis of how Blackarachnia could use her weapon in a melee fight:



    Fig.A: Blackarachnia deploys her web/claw and grabs Ratchet's right arm (indicated by the purple arrow). She then reels Ratchet in toward her (direction indicated by the red arrow).



    Fig.B: Blackarachnia uses her webbing to reel Ratchet in (indicated by the red arrow), and as in the video demonstration, Ratchet falls to the ground. Blackarachnia immediately holds onto Ratchet's right wrist with her right hand and sticks her left arm onto Ratchet's right arm and drives pressure toward his shoulder/body (indicated by the green arrow), thus pinning him on the ground. Being the nasty beeotch that she is, she delivers a few nice kicks to Ratchet's head (indicated by the yellow arrow).


    Now that is of course only if Ratchet actually falls during the initial web-grapple. What if he remains standing?



    Fig.C: Blackarachnia uses her webbing to reel Ratchet in (red arrow) but this time Ratchet doesn't fall and remains standing. She grabs Ratchet's right wrist with her right hand (yellow circle) and sticks to his right below with her left forearm (yellow arrow) - this prevents Ratchet from folding his right arm and barging his elbow into Blackarachnia's face. In this scenario, Ratchet wants to follow up by clubbing Blackarachnia with his wrench (blue arrow). Blackarachnia now wants to move around and behind Ratchet and she will apply a grapple leading to a submission hold (green arrows indicate intended stepping).


    Fig.D: As she's stepped around Ratchet Blackarachnia also simultaneously pulls Ratchet's right wrist into her right hip and applies downward pressure on Ratchet's right shoulder blade, driving it toward the ground (yellow arrows). Once the lock is complete, Ratchet is effectively immobilised.


    So how could Ratchet counter this? Here's one way...



    Fig.E: Rather than trying to resist Blackarachnia's pull (purple arrow) Ratchet goes with it and drives himself along and beyond Blackarachnia's pull (red arrow).

    Fig.F: Ratchet then drives his lead arm further forward and up and toward Blackarachnia's centre of gravity.

    Fig.G: Ratchet's lead arm, in a continual upward arc, cuts into Blackarachnia's centre and disrupts her balance.

    Fig.: Turning his lead arm downward, Ratchet throws Blackarachnia to the ground. Blackarachnia defensively curls up.

  2. Agent Zero: I invite you to post your pic of all your Starscreams in one group shot here if you'd like. :) If anyone else wants to do likewise with their Animated toys in group shots with all their other TFs with the same name then feel free and post away there. :)

  3. Takin' out the trash!

    :D That works on 2 different levels. Ehehehehe. :)


    For the IDW readers out there

    Looks more like a crossover between IDW and DW! (cos only DW did Armada and Energon) :P


    Solidspeir: Good work, Daniel-san! Wax on, wax off!!
