What justice is there to do? The only ones that have been shown were Rumble, Frenzy, and Laserbeak, in War for Cybertron. Laserbeak resembles his video game counterpart fairly well, except for the wing shape. Rumble and Frenzy are a similar case. You have to make exceptions to figures when something that is 2 inches tall is designed to transform.
We've never even seen Ravage in the Aligned Community (WFC/FOC+Prime), so who knows if he looks accurate or not.
You can defend them as much as you want, but they are garbage.
You make it sound like you were there in person and held them in your hand. The figures aren't even out yet, and quite a few of the figures that were on display were mistransformed (looking at you, Insecticon!). I happen to love the Aligned continuity, ESPECIALLY the War for Cybertron game. To me, these figures are the perfect balance of accuracy and size limitations.
Either way, I'm going to reserve judgment until we get some in hand images, so Rumble (or is that Frenzy?) isn't just standing upright with arms to the side.
