I'm not really sure about Onslaught, he looks, kind of, bootleg.

Soooo, is this the "tank" that we were expecting, cus that sure as hell isn't Warpath.

Very nice though, and I do hope to get a combiner out of this, he has enough size for it.

Speaking of size, is that a deluxe or voyager?

The reason I think he might be part of the combiner that was mentioned, for one of the upcoming lines is because there has been mention of a tank well S.W.A.T. uses tanks as well as helicopters so that leaves only the other two figures.

Hold it a second, I just got to looking at it in detail and look closely at his wrist and the silver gate thingy on his right leg, is he starting to look a bit more like he really combines? :HALUC:

I like it, but it looks more like the homages we got in the Unicron trilogy lines than it does the faithful updates of the Classics line. Kind of disappointing. I guess that's why they decided to call it 'Universe' rather than 'Classics'.

I doubt they will waist an entire wave of figures on a niche group to make a combiner. Most likely he is a stand alone.

What if we get him and Brawl for the first wave, then two more and the last figure in waves two and three.

Doesn't look like it combines to me. But we may still be pleasantly surprised. In which case, the rumored tank would make sense to be Brawl.

however depending on how the legs transform, and the arms latch together, he might be able to combine.

But if they are going to make combiners i would have liked the Stunticons instead of the Combaticons.

Onslaught FTW! Can't really tell if he is a combiner by the pic, all of the tell-tale signs are well hidden. :-?

Either way this is sweet.

If Onslaught is a stand alone character, then this is really an "out of left field" pick that is even more surprising than Mirage or Ramjet would have been in Classics 1.0.

He looks like he should a good figure and it's always good to see the lesser known characters get their due, but outside of the context of the Combaticons as a whole, it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to just release Onslaught.

I would imagine the rest of the Combaticons would be coming, not in the 1st wave, but throughout the whole lifespan of the line since I cannot imagine Hasbro would plan for making, say, 2 or 3 Combaticons, and then finishing off the team "somewhere down the road", like Classics 3.0 or whatever.

Any way you look at it, this is great news! :D

There is no official word that this Onslaught is part of any Combiner. He may just be a figure on his own, fans will need to consider that possibility.


:-( Aww, that would be a real disappointment! Although the 5 figures could be the 5 Combaticons, but why release only the Combaticons for Wave 1? Great chance he might be a stand-alone figure =(


I thought I remembered in the notes taken at the last Botcon that Hasbro said we should expect to see a combiner, but I can not remember if it was in reference to the universe, or animated line. Does anyone else remember reading that as well?

if this is a staggered release combiner i'm okay with it being Bruticus rather than Menasor. Both are cool but the later will benefit with more vehicles out for the autobots and some small retools can pull off some good liknesses to the stunticons.

if they will be combiners that is. Even if Onslaught isn't he does look damn cool.

well maybe the other comaticons will add to him like an extra Long leg, and arm/backpack attachments.. like say that Leo Breaker does with megatron, and the legs will have attachments similar to that of another robot.. and a helmet head for Bruticus..?? Just thinking out loud.. :wink:

Wow, I did not see that coming!

Cool so he's like an armoured SWAT riot truck, abit different than that weird self proplelled artillery truck thing he was in G1.

But he's still got the classic duel cannon barrels sticking up on his back, I guess they'd be water cannons on this type of verhicle, I not sure the American police force have their own artillery branch (yet) but f@#k it, it's an original direction to take the character that works so I'm happy.

Don't love the head sculpt so much... I liked the old mouth plate and big orange visor better.

Fingers crossed a Swindle & Hound retool come along in 2.0

Only time Hasbro is getting my money before Fall 2008 is for Masterpiece Starscream. Let's be honest guys, the movie figures are hard to find and there quality is on par with Beast Machines which is pretty bad. I don't like the paint scheme for Onslaught though. It makes since somewhat because when do you think you'll see a vehicle similiar to Onslaught's on the road? Hasbro sucks since they just want to milk the Movie line 10 times more than it's worth. :-(

Looks great! I guess it's safe to assume or at least Hope for a full blown new mold of the rest of the combaticons. Wow what Hasbro is capable of doing yet they don't seem to realize this is exactly what we as fans want to see. I really wish they would have done new molds for the Constructicons.

From the sounds of it from Pete@Botcon, he's fairly sure that Onslaught is NOT a combiner and also has no indication from Hasbro that he will combine. He's not 100%, but he's fairly certain.
