That's because they started with putting WFC molds into the line at first, and then the FOC game came out and now they gotta get those toys going since it's the new big thing on the market besides Prime. While thye could have made a new toyline for these, it's probably due to the WFC toys that were in the line before that opened the door for these FOC molds to be sold in this line instead.

It's not that it's a "continuity", but a "franchise". FOC has not just a game, but a comic and toys as well. Some franchises don't even have anything BUT toys.
As far as the game being a continuity goes, it has a far better narrative flow than most TF video games, telling a crucial point in the bigger Transformers story not told anywhere else. If one want to know what happens in that particular chapter of the story, one has to go to the game to experience it.
Rated X wrote:On to the figure itself. In my opinion they basicly took Animated Grimlock and changed his smooth round surfaces and replaced them with more flat surfaces with angles and details.
Yet, the transformation schemes are entirely different. The robot torso front forms the back
(not the stomach) of the T-Rex. There are no back kibble "wings" like the animated figure had. The robot shoulders shift inward and outward when transforming to the T-Rex thighs and back, whereas the Animated figure's robot shoulders/T-Rex thighs stay put. the legs transform from the tail differently. And the proportions differ with Animated Grimlock being more akin to the G1 Grimlock T-Rex while this one being more like a realistic T-Rex.

Well, they made an intent to make sure that this Grimlock wasn't dumb.

Even though the Jurassic Park Raptors were just as scientifically incorrect
as G1 Grimlock's T-Rex.
