I Need Spider Robots!

Here's a challenge for you movie-loving Otters. Our art director here at my day job is looking for pictures of spider-bots from movies. He knows he's seen these nasty little vicious bastards in some movie, but he can't remember the exact film. He doesn't want the type of spiders from Minority Report, which are more elegant and sinewy, but more like the kind of clunky, bad-ass robots from Tom Selleck's Runaway. Has there been a movie recently with that type of spider-bot?

He needs pics for reference, so can anyone here find some great spider-bot pics for our art director?

Same here. I will never again be able to take a spider seriously after seeing that.

Nice bunch of spiders, guys! I think that middle one from Nifty is the closest to what we have in mind. Any more out there?

I lose more/gain more by having the figure. Not the more recent carded release, but the old mail away Toyfare exclusive.

There are some good ones in the Ghost in the Shell movie also, but I can't find any pictures of them.

I have failed on the internet.
