Why would they make an announcement of "five" figures if they make them fit with FOC Grimlock?
Good job on your math. Though, not with what they plan to do.
"Fitting" with an existing toy isn't the same as copying FoC. If you take many of the 3P toys we buy and put them together without the official Classics/G/U toys then they would look like they don't belong together, each company has its own style. Put them with the official toys and they all look great together. If they "fit" then it won't matter if I get FoC Grimlock.

FOC has taken the Generations line hostage, which is partially the reason we are seeing such a boom in 3rd party offerings. If you look a the list of current and proposed Toyworld offerings, they all have been G1. Slightly neo, but still G1 all the way.
I don't care what you see as "continuity" and I don't collect FOC/WFC either, I just get those I like or think will suit my Classics set (which is being influenced by the Aligned continuity btw). As it stands FoC Grimlock looks nice on the Classics shelf and if these dinos are done right it won't matter which of the two Grimlocks we have.
I agree that 3P companies are booming because Has/Tak are dropping the ball

While WFC and FOC are nice, i don't need anymore different versions of the same character, just give me one fantastic version, and call it a day, and get another character done.
3P seems to be figuring it out.
Did no one read my post properly?
I have FoC Grimlock on pre-order atm and want to know if I should be cancelling that and waiting for these. Which is why for once I want them to release a proper image quickly instead of dragging it out. I don't want to end up buying three of the same character, and I'm reluctant to cancel the pre-order because atm it is the only way for me to get Blaster who I really want.
PS: sorry for forcing you to agree with X
