    Onslaught, both are pretty good but I've heard more random complaints about Powerglide than Onslaught.

    pretty sure the general opinion would be ONSLAUGHT. He has a few minor faults(feet), but nothing compared to Powerglide. Powerglide has a good alt mode, but a top heavy robot mode, and has some weird issues with his gun in alt mode. But Powerglide does have the transformation sound while Onslaught doesnt.

    Just go with onslaught unless your a powerglide fan

    I think most people will go for Onslaught... I would if I had to choose.

    I honestly thought I would like Onslaught more, but I don't. Powerglide is very awesome and if you fold down one piece of his plane mode then his gun fits just fine. I think that if Onslaught's feet held together nice and he had a hugeass rifle or gun or something then he would be my pick. As it is, I have to go with Powerglide. He's just too awesome.

    First? Powerglide. Why? Because I've seen Onslaught more often than Powerglide on the shelves.

    I have Onslaught coming. I'm passing on Powerglide entirely.

    Haven't seen either in stores... But I'm looking forward to Onslaught more than I'd look forward to Powerglide.

    I want Powerglide more, but I am more of an Autobot collector.

    I have them both, but if I had to pick it'd be Onslaught for me as well, as he blew me away. Amazing toy!

    Onslaught. I just don't like how Powerglide looks. Period.

    I don't own Powerglide yet but I got Onslaught the other day and he is all kinds of awesome. Honestly I wasn't sure if he would turn out well when we saw the promo pics but he is EXACTLY what I hoped for.

    I personally dont like Classics Powerglide at all and will be one I pass over on, Onslaught however is pure win and is a must buy no question. Got to fiddle with him at TFCon and he lives up to the hype.
