    I didn't see another thread for this, so I was in Wal-Mart today looking the TFs. I saw an Onslaught, whom I've had since release, and my ADD kicked in. I had to push the button, and I almost shat my pants...



    Ok this didn't work as planed. The Siren Has Been Fixed!!! See the video for proof.

    UPDATE: Ok I just opened the new one, and it seems if I am not mistaken by comparing the first and second release, the leg cage issue has also been addressed. See the photo for the new Onslaught's leg. I can post a comparison pic if any one wants.

    Wow, first Voyager Prime and now this. Slowly but surely, it looks like Hasbro's getting their shit together.

    Although not embedded, this link does work, to show just what flaw Hasbro corrected:

    If the leg cages are less screwy as well, perfect.

    What wave is this?
    I think the newest my local stores have is the one with stormcloud.

    I have yet to pick up Onslaught(due to my focus on animated), but I guess now my waiting has paid off.

    Well, I didn't even notice he was broken, so I guess I'm not too bothered by this :)  Good they addressed it though.

    Hm, I'll have to check next time I see an Onslaught. Probably won't be worth getting another one, but we'll see.

    Between running improvements like this, and Premium releases of movie toys, is anyone else wondering why anyone should even bother buying figures when they first come out...?

    the original did not do the siren wail like an emergency vehicle...the fix now does....

    DAMN IT!!!

    Now i gotta buy this bitch again to get one with the correct sound gimmick....

    I wonder if the henkei version has the working sound effects?

    i could justify getting that one...but not another of the hasbro onslaught....

    I agree Draven. Hasbro releases sub-par stuff, releases the revised copy, and wathces the simultaneous mad dash/bawwwfest
