    That little wrist gun just doesn't work well... He needs a long spear to go with that shield. Did you guys customize Onslaught in any way?

    Onslaught has a giant shield and the OP feels giving Onslaught a spear would be a great weapon as to homage the Spartan in the image provided.

    Is it really that hard to work out? Maybe...Maybe not.

    He needs a BMFG.

    That little wrist cannon is a bit lacking. Still an awesome figure, though.

    Last I checked SWAT soldiers don't carry spears.

    There is a energon spear. It comes with all versions of the energon skyblast mold and the extended handle should fit. I'll recommened target exclusive TFTM: Air Raid since that spear is black.

    If you think that looks disproportionate to air raid that's because the energon molds essentially came with weapons your supposed to equip on bigger figures. It also converts into a gun.

    I really like the idea of Onslaught having a spear.

    Last I checked vehicles really don't transform into robots.

    I give him Nemesis Prime's windvane rifle, dude does need a more serious gun than that little wrist shooter.

    I gave him his G1 gun, it's big enough to work well with him and small enough to squeeze between his legs when he's in alt mode.

    Universe Onslaught is missing a lot more than a spear.

    I seem to be in a vast minority, but yeah. I don't care for the toy at all.

    For a line chock full of homage and geewun goodness... Onslaught is nothing like his G1 self.

    If you ask me, the figure should've been Roadbuster. The same way that Silverbolt seems like he was always meant to be Darkwing.

    Actually, he looks exactly like his G1 Robot mode

    It's an awesome update to the vehicle mode too. G1 vehicle mode was a pretty half-assed Optimus Prime truck that was just longer. They could of made his G1 vehicle something better from the war.

    forgive me but i must say it!

    THIS IS MADDNESS!

    okay thats out of my system and i think a spear for onslaught would be out of place , a BFG would be fine though
