    Hi All,

    Classics 2.0 have recently hit Argos stores in the UK. (Thanks for the heads up TFW) I had been waiting for which seemed like eternity for these...
    I rolled out to the nearest store and managed to pick up Sunstreaker and Onslaught. No Prowl this time round :(  They did have Powerglide (looked tempting) but I thought I would wait for the Henkei version.

    Anyway, they are excellent toys and I would recommend them to all.

    Here are a few pics I would like to share with you.

    Cool. Does Onslaught fists rotate or is he doomed with Sky Garry arms?
    And in the last picture, that's Superlink Wheeljack there, right?

    The axe is either from the jeep omnicon from Energon or is a repaint of one. I dont know if its just the lighting making it look orange or if it is actually orange.

    Hmm Downshift really fits in quite well with the Classics/Universe line. he could even be used as stand in for Wheeljack.

    Maybe when they design him in the first place, it's like a homage to G1 Wheeljack.

    Yes, he does fit in quite nicely in the Classics Line. I think a lot of people are using him as a filler until they are sure that there will be a classics version. I am also contemplating purchasing a Cybertron Blurr as a filler too.

    Thanks for the comments. I believe the axe was from Energon Superlink Ironhide? It fits into Prime's hand perfectly.

    The axe is from the omnicon Strongarm from Energon/Superlink, I have one I use with my Classics Prime and that Wheeljack is Superlink Wheeljack. I could only get Universe Downshift for my collection, looks similar but his arms and legs are yellow instead of silver.

    I was asking because Energon Downshift has a tint of green to the arms and legs, so I assumed that was the japanese version. Fits him better IMO.

    I also use Downshift as my Wheeljack. Those pics look really good. I really like the Onslaught toy. A great update.

    What's really been annoing me is that Mirage and Rodimus look slightly out of place now as the rest of the Autobots have bigger noggins where as they have pin heads! Oh well, I guess I will have to live with it.
