STrange that they even bothered with Cyclonus, he looks great an all, but in the TF timeline he didn't even exist until last year, there was never a Cyclonus back on CYbertron, so if they did include him no matter how kool he looks, the fact they have put so much effort into the story would ruin it for me, I hate to see so much thought put into something be blemished by a school boy error. I'm surprised I'm the only one who's mentioned it, I'm usualy really bad at story technicalities, I guess everyone has overlooked it due to looks.
I think that looks are part of it but also the fact that we are so far along in the TF mythos and there have been so many reboots of the TF line that the "gray" areas are becoming larger between all the different stories. The younger fans coming into the Transformer universe are hard pressed to keep everything straight if they try to follow it back further than 10 years. Some of us old schoolers have a hard enough time just keeping 25+ years of the US and UK stuff straight without even trying to throw the Japanese lines into the mix.
But enough about that...I just have to say that I think I actually like the WFC versions of Swoop and Grimlock better than the War Within renderings of them. They are very similar but the WFC versions are just a bit more streamlined and detailed out and Cyclonus as well looks a lot better detailed and has just enough more bulk to make him look brutal but not so much bulk to make him appear as if it would slow him down any.
These are all excellent picks and I'd snatch up the whole bunch if they were to make figures for these.
