Well, the ever slow process of finishing another Combiner has taken one step closer to coming to a conclusion. Today we are looking at Onslaught. We have seen a few different variations of Onslaught over the years, and this is not the first in the Generations line.
In robot mode, he is a powerful looking dude. Made off of the same base as Hot Spot, he has the strong shoulders, and tall frame we need in a Voyager Class figure to be the core of a Combiner. My is suffering from weak shoulder joints, so it is hard for him to hold a gun straight out. It tends to flop down. Thankfully that does not affect the rest of the transformations into either the truck or the torso of Bruticus.
Overall this is a good looking team. They are a fairly good combination of colors, with the notable exception of Vortex that has some wildly strange colors going on.
In truck mode, he is okay. I think this body worked better for Hot Spot. It is a bit hard to tell what Onslaught is trying to be. The guns are from Hot Spot, so they look like they should fire water. I am also not very happy about the giant head sticking out of the middle of the truck. Hot Spot’s head hid away much better.
It is awesome that they worked it out so Shockwave can be mounted on the truck. That adds a lot of this mode.
I can’t quite finish Bruticus yet. I am still missing Blastoff, and I am hoping to find him fairly soon. Overall I really like the look of Bruticus. He is a strong looking guy. He has a lot of changes from Hot Spot that makes him look unique from the Protectobots. His chest plate stands out as a really well designed part of the whole.
