T1s, Primals and Spimmys will fall in this category since there is nothing "spyder-like" except their bodies anymore. In my opinion, I think since the operation of the marker has changed, and the only thing Kingman-like left on them are the bodies, then they should go in the Non Spyder of the Month contest.

And there you have it.

I remember reading the first part, the part about it being up in the air, but couldn't remember what the final decision was.

timmy because non-operational parts are spyder parts modified to work with timmy parts. timmy is its operation, if a timmy ram is what makes it fire then a timmy it is.

but really its both imo... therefore enter it in both.

you could ask the same question of when is a fetus considered a human being and protected by laws such as murder... but lets NOT get into that, cuz i go to a catholic school and i deal with those debates enough.

The real problem is the T1 and Raven (guess it's expanded to include the few spyders with the One kit now.) The operation is not blowback, and technically they aren't Spyders or clones.....

I Think that it should be a spyder, becouse if you were to do a true ep convertion to a EM1 or a Primal (which are like half ep), then it is still a primal and EM1, it only has one little difference. Therefor, still a spyder (or Raven in the case of the Primal). The spimmy is still a spyder at heart, but it just works different.

So i go for Spyder, but if there was a Hybrid Thread that is what it would go under.
