Hopefully the rest of the Bruticus Combiner will show up as well. Wish I could see a better picture but the link is not sending me anywhere.

Wow, Onslaught looks awesome! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

I hope the black strip down his face is a shadow or something,:shock:
I also hope those two rods by his ears aren't attatched to his head :?

Link fixed. Sorry about that folks. And we don't host images from the Club here on the site, we can only link to their mainpage.

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 =(

Ok, I fixed the link AGAIN (this new site setup really hates me) and I credited Prime Evil for the find.

I think the figure looks cool, liking the whole S.W.A.T motif. Looks to be a solid figure, though I doubt he's part of any combiner. I wonder who the other four wave 1 figures will be...

I hope this indicate that the combaticons will be wave 1. I'm so excited that this might be the new combiner and it looks like it might be a s.w.a.t. style.

Onslaught looks extraordinarily cool.

The head is a little weird, and he doesn't look like he combines with anybody, but he still looks amazingly nice.

Glad I'm gonna skip most of animated so I can save up for this line.

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?
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586821)
Posted by shortround on December 28th, 2007 @ 3:19pm CST
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.

Posted by Nekoman on December 28th, 2007 @ 3:52pm CST
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:
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586840)
Posted by AbsumZer0 on December 28th, 2007 @ 3:57pm CST
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'.
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586842)
Posted by Robinson on December 28th, 2007 @ 4:00pm CST
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.
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586847)

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.
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586854)
Posted by Geekee1 on December 28th, 2007 @ 4:11pm CST
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

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?

i dont like his head. looks like they are putting to much "swat" into his bot mode. FEELS LIKE STAR WARS TRANSFORMERS FIGURE.
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586881)
Posted by Maldroth on December 28th, 2007 @ 5:03pm CST
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.

Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586910)
Posted by skywarp-2 on December 28th, 2007 @ 5:47pm CST
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:
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586917)
Posted by Craven Knight on December 28th, 2007 @ 5:59pm CST
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. :-(
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586928)
Posted by Collector Maximus on December 28th, 2007 @ 6:29pm CST
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.
Re: Transformers Universe / Classics Onslaught Revealed! (586933)
Posted by Prime Evil on December 28th, 2007 @ 6:34pm CST
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.

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm gonna be on edge until the release. #-o

Gonna keep me eyes open for other Web-based info related to this ITM.

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.
