I was under the impression that WFC was made with being in a Primax cluster universe in mind. Can you cite the source that states otherwise?

There's a lot that says they contradict each other. Just to name a couple, dark energon in WFC is a manufacturable product that was created from normal energon, which dark energon in Prime is the blood of Unicron. And Prime Megatron isn't infused with dark energon as he is in Prime. There are many many other errors between Exodus, WFC/FoC, and Prime if one considers them in the same universe. Trying to retcon in answers to them all would simply be too irrational.
I'm not referring to different art styles. I'm referring to aesthetics. G1 Optimus looked fairly the same in his appearance in Beast Wars than in the G1 cartoon. Same aesthetics. Not so in WFC to Prime, where he looks completely different.
Again, it's just a baseless assertion for now to assume WFC designs predate Prime designs in-universe. We need more information from Hasbro if we are to resolve this.
