    Spydor - 6 legs OR 8 legs???

    If Spydor was ever made into a MOTUC vehicle, would you prefer it to have 6 legs, just like the vintage toy, or 8 legs, like a true spider?

    Anatomically correct...8 legs.

    I never had Spydor, but a friend did, and I thought it was super cool but was always confused about the 6 legs. One of the first things you learn about bugs when you're a kid is the difference between insects and spiders.

    I voted six like the vintage. Maybe Eternia has 6-legged spiders....or maybe Skeletor used this guy:

    6. Yeah, 6 is good.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I voted 8, but the fact of the matter is I missed out on all evil warrior vechicles back in the day and wouldn't know the difference one way or t'other.

    gotta vote vintage, plus it'd be cheaper assumedly.

    It's Spydor, not a spider.

    6 legs.

    I'm fine with either. Doesn't matter much to me.

    My thought is that using 6 legs on the vintage toy helped to ensure a simpler walking mechanism was needed and helped Spydor to operate more smoothly. It's possible 8 legs might have made the toy two clumsy. That being said, if we saw Spydor rereleased, I think 8 legs would be fine and would help the toy to have more support since the newer toy would most likely not need to actually walk.
