I'm surprised these never saw the light of day, alot more interesting than some others included. MAybe they have been made for DLC but have been abandoned.

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.

Swoop's my favorite one. I really like how they used his trademark crest as a functional tail-fin in alt mode, instead of trying to hide it or something.

This is the first time I've seen DS exclusive characters. For some reason, there isn't a lot of artwork for that on the internet.

They look great!

Uh, no I don't. The character designs were one of the things I hated most about that tedious, barely playable crap. These look better as drawings than the mostly awful clunky 3D models in the game but I can't help thinking of raspberry ripple ice cream when looking at those reddish energy line things.

Why High Moon? Why couldn't you at least put these guys in the Xbox 360 game as at least a DLC PACK?

:sad:

Woot! Go Bluestreak!!
Cyclonus looks none too different from G1. Not surprising since he doesn't need a complete revamp (like Scourge, Shockwave or other bots who were using Cybertronian modes anyways).

I'm still royally pissed they never made DLCs for the computer version.

Amazing art, I still do not like the neon red and purple on the bot though. I wish we could've got these characters as DLC on the PS3 instead of the DLC characters that were already on the disk.

Well at least two continuities have Cyclonus in Cybertron's distant past. IDW had him as a crewmember on Nova Prime's first Ark.

Marvel UK had him and Scourge created in 2006 but transported back in time to Cybertron's distant past where they came under the command of Scorponok and went on to become Targetmasters when he led them to Nebulos.

It's a pity you can't get these as downloadable content for the XBox. Though my biggest problem with the downloadable characters is that you can't use them when you replay the game itself.

Be nice to see Bluestreak in Prowl or Smokescreen's colours though they share their design with Streetwise/star and Rapido these days.

They do look really good, but Grimlock's the definite winner. His proportions just look the best to me and he fits WFC best I think. I would say Cyclonus but his two modes look a tad bit bulky then I prefer. And let me stress that, just a little, teeny bit bulkier than normal.

This is exactly how I feel. I feel the same way with Animated every time I hear "what would have been" in Season 4. :BANG_HEAD:
