As much as I'm not keen on the domestic Powerglide color scheme, I'd still prefer it over this version. I think Silverbolt looks awesome, though.

I really like Silverbolt's alt mode and robot mode. I just wish his transformation was better.

I think Hasbro said at BotCon Monzo was the screen name of someone involved with Hasbro in making Onslaught. I think they pestered them to make a new Onslaught or something and he finally got him. I honestly can't remember though.

That Powerglide looks like some of my tfs I leave on the top of my shelves, and forgot to dust down for half a year.... or is it only the quality of the pic?

That is really awesome, if true.

Does Henkei Powerglide have a dirt wash paint effect or is that just a filthy hand painted prototype?

Bugger.
Here I was thinking that Onslaught would be missing those SWAT stickers.

Dammit. I liked Powerglide when it was just red. Why'd they have to ruin it with the painted dirt! :sad:

Perhaps Hasbro will release a solid red verion next year. :D

That Powerglide has something wrong with it. The vehicle and bot mode are two different toys, look at the highlights on the wrist area. There in alt mode, missing in bot mode. That, and the photo just looks odd. Not doubting Takara has a red version of Powerglide, but this might not be the final deco.

I'll pick all three of these guys up. I still don't see what all the fuss is over Silverbolt, but I'd rather just buy these guys as a package rather than one from Hasbro, two from Takara.

Other than that, I don't see the point in making two of the new Classics toys two of the leaders of sub-factions. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing old character put into modern forms, it's just that if we have REAL Classics Gestalts on the way, but Hasbro denies the return of Gestalts, why make the leaders of the teams that form those Gestalts?

Oh well, just ignore the crazy conspiracy nut for now. But if we get Classics Motormaster or Hot Spot though, I'll have a fangasm. The point is we're getting cool toys.

I'm really liking Onslaught and Silverbolt.
The Powerglide? A bit less. That dirt paint is just a major turn off, for me to buy it. I'd rather get the white Hasblow version, then.

The Silverbolt really makes me kind of nostalgic, as it's... wow. It's Silverbolt. And he looks frickin' awesome. :grin:

The same with Onslaught, due to his head, and cannons on back, just screaming "Combaticons, form Brrruticusss" :grin:

I have to agree with the others who've not liked the dirty paint job on Powerglide. Ruins the toy for me when it looks like someones already played with him for hours on end and had him crash into a sandbox a dozen times after being shot down.

I love them all.

That bot mode shot of Powerglide looks fudged up. There's pixelated sick all over him.


Alt mode shot is much nicer.
And wow, that Onslaught head is far superior to Hasbro's version.

I do really like the paint on this version of Onslaught but I probably won't be able to justify the premium price over the Hasbro version. PG will probably look better with some clearer pictures of his bot mode. I may get the Henkei version of him once I see clearer pictures. Silverbolt just looks strange to me. What an odd TF to redo. I'd love to have seen them skip him in lieu of a Classics Cosmos.

Something is not right with the colours on those second batch of pics for powerglide. Someone has messed with the image and I'm certain there's no way that can be paint.

Onslaught however is the sex, and I have switched my preorder over to the Henkei version, an extra $20 is not going to kill me.

I had to get hit over the head, as it were, to peek at these guys....and, MAN! I am glad to got an eye-full of Onslaught....fantastic!! Yet another to add to my growing list!

Is it just the picture quality, or does Powerglide look that "pitted" in real life?

Oh yeah can't wait until I got those three Transformers into my hands. :grin: just too bad that Onslaught and Silverbolt aren't combiners. :?

I'm liking these figures so much.. now i wonder if they'll make classics Motormaster and maybe even Hotspot... or even better, classics Insecticons. :)

Powrglide looks shopped, actually all of them do. Cool anyway.

Preordered Powerglide but the other two are so close to their US Counterparts that I'll pass on them

i really dont like powerglide in either mode.

Onslaught is ok, i do like the alt mode though and he could be a favourite for the kids, hes just so big and clunky.

Silverbolt is my fave robot mode but the TF looks rather simple although that could be a good thing!

Powerglide looks like a bad photoshop. I'll wait for real pics :D

That Powerglide just does not look right to me with all that battle damage or wear. Seems photoshopped or something... :-?

Posted by Kimmer on June 3rd, 2008 @ 9:43am CDT
waiting for some better pics but a red powerglide is a lot better then that hasbro white one. i'm not too crazy about the fig itself with the look and size class but the red would definately be my choice. both versions of onslaught are decent and silverbolt still is putrid.
