|"The secrets of the universe are coded in every Cybertronian's spark... and I won't stop cutting until I find them!"|
Predacon Tarantulas is a being without a history. In his rush to remove Jhiaxus' clones from his laboratory before the Autobots discovered its location, Sky-Byte mistakenly extracted four stasis pods of unknown origin. The emergent robots immediately declared for the Predacon cause, some might say suspiciously quickly. Of the four robots, Tarantulas has since discovered an endless fascination with experimental science, especially seeking any opportunity for vivisection. Rumors persist that he engages in cannibalistic practices with the mech fluids he extracts from his hapless victims. His knowledge of cyber-anatomy is unparalleled and has enabled him to create a variety of tools and inventions, including his Arachnoid minions. Converts to a motorcycle for short bursts of great acceleration, though his range is limited. In combat, he likes to hack his opponents to pieces with his nuclo-titanium axe, the more messy, the better.

|Additional Toy Info |
Tarantulas went through a number of changes between his initial reveal and his final deco. His earliest Botcon reveal had a deco skewing closely to the original toy deco, with large amounts of green on the legs and arms, and a yellow head. The initial deco revealed by the TCC during the preorder period simplified this deco, swapping most of the green to black, adding a purple head. There was an outcry from fans who felt this deco did not resemble Tarantulas closely enough, prompting the TCC to go back and revise the deco, providing the finalised deco which skewed much closer to the on-screen appearance of Tarantulas.
Comes with a pair of Arachnoid spider drones, which are redecos of the Ida drone that was included with the Japanese Arms Micron Airachnid figure.
