Thanks to Tonkeye for the photos.

:hawhaw Even the Japanese aren't getting an Onslaught with black guns. The only difference between this one and Hasbro's is lighter colors.


Nothing can help that Powerglide mold, but I think Takomy should have used a darker red. It's still missing the paint on the crotch area as shown on the box of Hasbro's Powerglide.


Sunstreaker is very nice. The use of chrome is good and matches the original toy.


Prowl is pretty nice, although instead of chrome on the spoiler they should have added more paint details. Other than the chrome, it's no better than Hasbro's Prowl.


Silverbolt is nothing special. If people over here want to spend $50 on it that's their business.

Powerglide looks horrible in red. The white is better. The Black will be :awsum

    • Hey Core Dinobot and Deluxe Sureshot are still coming out. Good. G2 Breakdown and Armada Wheeljack are new though. I'm not too worried about Armada Wheeljack's listing not having Whisper included as Sureshot's listing doesn't have Spoilsport in it but will most likely be included if Pointblank is any indication. Sucks about the rest of the G2 Stunticons not having new names though. It also sucks I never found Sideswipe or Dead End too. I imagine they'll be at Ross soon enough. I do want another Cosmos just for the gun. I never found one at Ross. Not that I went to more than one store to check though lol. The whole shit with signing up for their credit card bummed me out. They wouldn't let me use it that same day like every other store does when you sign up in store. I had to wait two weeks for the card to come in. It took two days just for them to email me the temp code to use in store the same day. Like seriously? How do you not know how this shit is supposed to work but I digress. Couldn't care less about Ramjet and Tarn as I have them already.  I do want more Galaxy Shuttle though. I got the one but was a bit tight on money at the time so didn't push it to get the other two I wanted. Again, I never found one at Ross. I just really wish they came plain black and white with both heads and had two decal sheets. One to turn it into Galaxy Shuttle and the other into Takara's G1 Astrotrain. The third I wanted will be made into Spay-C. Based more on her Super Gobots toy than her standard one. Shame the robot mode is mostly white as a fourth could've been used for Loco. Not that the black paints I have don't work well on Transformers. I just haven't felt up to doing any more customs these past few years. Work takes a lot out of me mentally. Not that I dwell on it or anything, it just takes me out of things. Anyway, Overcharge is both nice to see and bad to see. I did my part of getting two Blitzwings to try and move things along. I kind of did some mods to my first one I wanted to go back on and the reissue was like $25 so why not pick up a new one right? Hopefully Overcharge will go on sale quickly. I'll pick up a few to bolster out my Quintesson army. It's quite sizable now and will only get better with some Overcharge drones. I should pick up some more Sparkless Seekers to add them to the army as well. I already have three but they're so cheap now so it wouldn't hurt too much to get some more to help clean up digital shelves.
