    A redesigned Mixmaster instead of Long Haul. That way all three bipedal Constructicons would've been reused in the movie.

    I get the benefit of using one more universal model for various characters (I do wonder what Canopy would've turned into had he lived) but I think that they should try and get the only road-legal Constructicon design reused somehow

    That Con shouldn't have been named Onslaught to begin with.

    Even if he wasn't called Onslaught it wouldn't have made a big difference since he wasn't in the film for long.

    He's a big, green, one line machine. And he didn't last very long. He should have been called Shrekage.

    Also just to have some more recurring cons would be nice. Just to know there would be another guy to show up again in the next film to help Megs along with Barricade. I was kind of hoping there would be a recurring team of Decepticons now to counter the Autobots, but nah.

    Also I agree fully, the mixmaster design was one I loved, and I was so bummed when it was all but wasted, would've been wasted again but atleast it would've showed up

    is Onslaught the one who is a rusty old Volkswagen van? seem like the name doesnt live up to his alt-mode unless he runover some senior citizen.

    RIP Onslaught 2017-2017. All he wanted in life was a bigger door.

    If I remember correctly @Tony_Bacala described the concept art he saw similar to Mixmaster and Long Haul.
    Personally I really don't like the re-use of the construction models. They now come off as generic, canon fodder and not constructicons at all. A laughing stock, and a disrespect for any fans that might of had.
