For those who are interested (as I've had a couple of people asking questions about this), to clarify how tranformation/t-cogs work in this universe
(This is just copied from a reply in this thread):

The T-cog gives the body instructions on how to rearrange itself into its alternate form or how to change into inbuilt weaponry etc.
In some rare cases like triple changers and shifters the t-cog can contain multiple instructions but most are limited to one alt-mode and a few minor transformations like weaponry.


They can scan and transform into forms similar to their original shape.
So if some alien species used mechanical spider's as car's, original airachnid could have scanned it and adopted it as her alt-mode.
But a bot/con cant just sprout wheels or wings from nowhere. So Airachnid for example can't just scan a jet, grow wings and turn into that.


Radically changing your alt-mode requires either major surgery changing your t-cogs structure and altering your vehicle / beast mode kibble, or transplanting your spark and brain module into a new body (which come's with a whole host of risks as a spark can sometime's reject a new body).


In airachnids case the rust plague damaged her original t-cog and beast mode kibble beyond repair.
The only suitable* 'organ' donor available was a two-wheeler. So she was repaired by having a two-wheelers t-cog and vehicle kibble transplanted into her, hense the bike mode she has today.

*A transformer of the same spark type and of a similar size (as t-cog from a truck former or some other large bot just wouldn't fit into her small protoform)


-----------------
Note: Shattered Glass is the transformers version of the classic Sci Fi mirror-verse trope, where the Decepticons are the good guys fighting against the evil Autobots.
Transformers & the character's shown belong to Hasbro/Takara, I just made up the fan design(s)

Wow... Now I'm sad for her
StarArtIncorprated's avatar

Wait so she can't transform into her Spider-mode anymore? Can't she just scan a spider? Or does her T-Cog not allow this?


And for that matter, how do T-Cogs work for triple changers and above???


(Looks at thread)


Nevermind.

She lacks a lot of her old spider kibble and her new t-cog is for a two wheeler :)
I pasted a clarification on transformation in this in the description ;)

Wow. More about Airachnid's backstory and it's tragic.

SoundBluster's avatar

Yeah... its unfortunate...

Is it possible for Shockwave to study her kind so he can give her back her spider form while still being able to turn into a motorcycle? Just an idea

SoundBluster's avatar

We'll see, though SG Shockwave isn't really a scientist, he's more a diplomat.

I love you and I love this, just binge-read the whole thing with no regrets <3

While it may be exposition, it is very well done and a great explanation as to why she is how she is! I guess we'll just have to wait and see why she doesn't like fleshies so much XD

I love the detail in that they’re sisters, almost as much as BA’s redesign for this comic.

Shame of what happend though
