I looked up the other 1996 Beast Wars figures, the first wave, and checked out their tech specs. Blackarachnia apparently shares Tarantulas’ perverse feeding styles, but otherwise there aren’t a whole lot of changes to Inferno or Tigatron, though old Tig only has a intelligence spec of 3. I’m guessing Polar Claw was the brains of the polar defense region. Oddly none of that year’s non-show character tech specs had anything further about the Earth they were on, but Buzzsaw, who shares Waspinator’s mold, was supposed to be Waspinator’s combat partner.
