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.

So far Onslaught is the only Combaticon confirmed. No one knows if he's a combiner (not even the club, who just saw the same picture we saw) and he's going to be released in stores in fall of 2008, along with 4 other characters.

Never trust anything that anyone says no matter how well connected they clam to be. Because hasbro is always trying to send out disinformation so people will not expect what is coming down the road they want to make sure people show up for botcon in april so there leaking something that gets people hopes up, and then you shell out all the money to go and you don't get s***t in the way of information. Just like last year when they mentioned a new combiner coming for either the animated show or the classics 2.0/universe line during the panel disscusion. Well heres hoping that this is the first part of the combiner and not a stand alone S.W.A.T truck named onslaught.

I like him...looks like a good cross between G1 Onslaught and Energon Barricade. Even the SWAT logo is a nice touch.

Now we gotta see what his alt mode's like.
I'm selling a bunch of Transformers stuff, from G1 through to Cybertron--contact me if you're interested in seeing if I have a figure you want, and we'll go from there!

That Classics Onslaught looks sick. I realize that it isn't exactly a "reengineering" of the original but it looks fantastic and continues to =P~ for more of the Classics 2.0. I am ecstatic about this line!!

I cant fudge'n wait to get that awesome issue, man he looks awesome and I hope that they game him his 3rd base/tank mode think then it would be frigg'n amazing but I really don't like those kind of hands that transform like that some times because that might be loose and always keep going back in the arm...some of you might understand what Im saying, this think rules I really can't wait to see prowl. Why Hasbro why do We have to wait till fall nxt frigg'n year.

I don't understand the point of a combiner piece without the rest of his team. Also, why does he transform into a cop? Isn't that a good guy? They could have taken this mold and changed the paint scheme to something cool, like Hardhead.

Being a cop or not doesn’t seem to really matter, I thought the same thing when barricade came out. Wonder if someone in the Hasbro design team got arrested or given a ticket for speeding or something :lol: .
And also, there’s four other figures to be shown in the magazine and one is a tank I think, so lets hope we get rest of his team of I’ll be out of steam (I‘m turning into Roadblock, agh!).

Motto: ""It's all part of the plan...more or less.""
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
points to ponder...

1) Onslaught looks cool, but as a stand alone OR combiner, I could careless. Bruticus has been done a million times by now... Nothing has been done with the Stunticons since G1, and I think they would kick ass.

2) News... As far as news of a combiner, I would be inclined to think that it will be Devastator in the Animated line, ESPECIALLY after reading the episode synopsis posted a couple days ago. Dinobots VS. Constructicons, I CANNOT wait!!!

Bottomline...the pic and figure is cool, I could careless about the character (alone or as a Combaticon), I think it's a waste of the title Classic 2.0, and I cant wait for Animated Devastator. I sure hope those other four in the magazine make up for the disappointment for choice of character for this one.

My comment is based upon him being a stand-alone figure. If he is a combiner, that woud be great. But since this is all they've shown, I'll base my opinion on that.

Looks like a nice toy but its design does not say Onslaught to me.

The whole point of the Classics is to update original G1 toys not reinvent them. The previous Classics toy line and even the Botcon repaints acknowledged this as the alt modes and in most cases the robot was a true representation of its G1 counterpart making them as proper 'updates'.

This Onslaught on the other hand feels more like a reinvention since they have essentially changed his Alt mode from the original toy (A missile carrier/Gun turret Carrier Truck) to a SWAT Ban which is not really military. This is something that the original Classics did not change including the repaint Botcon ones. Astrotrain was still a Shuttle and a Train, Prime a truck and Megatron a Gun (A Nerf gun but still a gun). What Hasbro should have done is make Onslaught some sort of military troop carrying truck at the very least.

This toy smacks of some toy that they decided to name Onslaught well after its design was made as it is rather forced and outside the concept of the original G1 toy which this is supposed to be making tribute to.

I am sure that it could be a nice toy but it doesn't say Classics to me.

I hope that Hasbro doesn't miss the point why fans are attracted to the line. Having it under the Universe label is scary enough.

I seriously doubt that this thing combines with anything. If you think it will be prepared to be disappointed.

I really hope he does turn out to be a combiner that was talked about at botcon, because the last thing we need is another set of Constructicons due to the fact that they have been done just as many times as the combaticons if not more. if you don't beleave me here is a list of all version of the Constructicons:
1) orignial g1
2) g2 version
3) rid build team
4) Universe Constructicons (repaint of rid build team)
5) 2nd Universe Constructicons (repaint of team from micromaster)
6) Energon Constructicon Maximus
7) Classics Constructicons (repaint of Constructicon Maximus)
If I missed any please feel free to fill them in.

From this one picture, I really like what I see. I LOVE Decepticons, like Barricade, posing as vehicles we normally associate with "good guys," like police, firefighters, etc.
:APPLAUSE:
Months ago I posted that I thought it would be cool if the TF Animated Autobots got repainted/remolded into Decepticons, because how much more "in disguise" can a bad guy get than being disguised as a good guy?? :wink:

Now, if you wanna slap a Autobot logo sticker over the Decepticon logo and call him Hardhead, or consider him an "update" of Energon Checkpoint, then go for it. This guy looks like a great mold, no matter what name you give him.

I agree with what kup1986 just said. I hope the line, as a whole, continues to update classic characters instead of reinventing them, but one or two reinventions, sprinkled here and there throughout the line, really wouldn't be TOO terrible, especially if the reinvented figure was good in-and-of-itself, like this one seems to be.

Now, since Hasbro HAS named him Onslaught, I DO hope, even if he isn't a combiner, that the rest of his team shows up, even if it is just one per wave.

One final note: THIS is how you represent a SWAT vehicle TF, not that piece-of-crap TF Animated Bulkhead.

Doesn't look much like Onslaught in my opinion, change the colors and there would be nothing Onslaught-like in it. It looks just kind of weird...a bit like a vehicon, actually. I guess I'm just crazy.
