    Hey guys, I was thinking of picking this bad boy up, but was wondering what you guys thought of him. Also, what do you think of Ani. Blitzwing? Thanks for your time.

    Animated Blitzwing is essential, and so is Universe Onslaught. Buy them both.

    I got Onslaught yesterday (look for the fixed siren ones) at Target for $22.99 plus tax. Glad I got him. :)  I really like it a lot, and he is a well done transformer.

    I got Animated Blitzwing because I like the character, have the G1 version, and like Blitzwing in general, and we haven't had a new one since G1. But, frankly, he does not rock my socks. He doesn't hold together in either of his alt modes (although he does a better job in tank mode), nothing really pegs in well, or not at all (read, no peg, just hangs there), and he's a bit "messy". He's not a convincing jet by any means with his ENORMOUS tank treads hanging down under his belly, and his tank mode looks like a melted down WWII Sherman tank of some sort. Robot mode, he's pretty cool though. It's a tough call. I would probably get him as well, but make Onslaught your first priority, Blitzwing your second. He's not a bad figure at all, but nothing spectacular either. He is nice, and if you find him on sale at Target, I would get him. Confused yet? Sorry if I was rambling. Basicaly, if you like him, get him.

    ya know, people post these threads all the time, yet we have a feedback forum, where you'll find a thread on universe onslaught which is full of people speaking their thoughts and opinions of the figure, answering your question without the need to post a new thread.

    Had him when he first came. Definitely worth it but mine had alot of problems so I picked up the henkei one. If you can I would try for him, so worth it.

    if you like animated definately get blitzwing, even though his faces leave a little to be desired, the robot mode is amazing, verry cool figure

    onslaught is a must buy for any trans fans , simply a beautiful figure, get him

    get them both

    Universe Onslaught is an absolute must have figure if you are going to get ANY of the Universe figures.

    He's easily the best Ultra class fig from the line.

    Onslaught I used to be iffy on but wife got him for me for christmas and I am sad I didn't pick him up earlier. Cool alt mode but the bot mode shines greatly on him.

    Blitzwing is awesome as well, very show accurate and would recrommend him as well

    Ya know, some people leave comments on other people's profile pages, and then don't get a reply. :p 


    On topic: Onslaught easy. Animated Blitzwing never appealed to me with his....tank-treads-on-a-jet mode.

    Onslaught is a fantastic toy. The only downer on him is that he has slightly smaller than standard fist holes, so he can't hold the original's gun, or most other TF guns. He gets stuck with that one arm cannon, which is cool but it'd be nice for him to have another gun.

    Universe Onslaught is a terrific toy, and looks incredibly imposing in robot mode. TFA Blitzwing doesn't appeal to me due to the silliness of the face thing.
