Yeah, I'll get this. I don't really want to combine them, but Emirate Xaaron...
I really don't want to end up with two sets of the Wreckers, but I have to admit, I might.

Most likely this Wrecker giftset will be tied to the Aligned continuity, but it's not impossible it could be fitted into the "Neo" G1 or "Classics" continuity. Other popular characters from later Transformers series have been retroactively added to Generation 1 via new supplimentary fiction from figure packages, like the new Decepticon Heavy Load, and included mini comics, like the one that came with the Rodimus and Cyclonus gift set from the Reveal the Shield subline, which added Lugnut to the battle at Autobot City in the beginning of Transformers The Movie.

It looks like most/all of the FOC figs and their repaints would fall into Aligned rather than "G1-Classics" if one wants to split hairs over it. Personally I don't mind at all and am aiming more for what I call an expanded-G1 universe.

That's what I'm doing. I'm putting whatever characters I want into my "expanded G1 universe." I don't really care what the "official" story is.

I probably won't buy it. Don't get me wrong, I'd love the Wreckers to have more recognition, as if DOTM wasn't enough, but I don't want mass repaints in my collection. Seriously, almost every transformer in a line is starting to have it's own repaint. I know, Transformers are known to have many repaints, but I don't recall a line where everyone had a repaint. There probably was one -.-

At least the repaints got some new tooling.

But yeah, it's strange how the majority of FoC Autobots are retools (of Decepticons, no less). There's 3 Autobot molds and 12 Decepticon molds; everything else is just retools/redecos.
:BOT: = Optimus, Jazz, Grimlock
:CON: = Shockwave, Onslaught, Brawl, Swindle, Blast Off, Vortex, Starscream, Kickback, Soundwave, Laserbeak, Ravage, Frenzy


Glad I'm a Decepticon fan.

Actually, less TF's than before get recolors. DOTM had loads of characters that never got a repaint, compare that to ROTF. It's just more concentrated on the BBB's and the Optimus Primes now.

Very true. FOC Shockwave is going to be my Classics/NeoG1 Shockwave. It's perfect for that role. My WFC/FOC figures are all Cybertronian modes for their respective G1 characters, as far as I'm concerned.

I always thought each TF universe was different from the previous/future. Unless stated otherwise like Beast Wars was set in the future (past in story wise). Like Armada for example is not set in the same Universe or timeline as let's say Animated. Sure they use the same transformers name and may have a simular alt mode but bot mode can be different or whatnot.

I also believe I did read up the WFC/FoC timeline is somehow tied in with transformers prime? May need more clarification on that topic.

And on a final note/2 cents. The wreckers is a team made up of the best of the best, strongest of the strong and pretty much the elitist of the elite correct? And when 2 beings or more combine they become stronger, so wouldn't it be logical and wise for the wreckers to combine if their target or objective requires them to combine and gain the upper hand with superior strength and fire-power?

Agreed. Please remember that there are plenty of people here who's first language is NOT English. Also, there are plenty of dyslexics in the world who don't need more insults.
