Huh? They do what?
In the Elite Guard stories, they have Dion as a character which obviously is a reference to War Dawn. In the Shattered Glass stories, they mention how SG Optimus was Optotronix from War Within. Correct me if I'm wrong (which I know you will) but they have also tied both comic threads into their Classicsverse universe. One doesn't work with the other.
Oh, now I see what's going on. See, the Elite Guard ones take place in a world, the "Wings Universe" if you will, that based on the G1 cartoon's past.
Whereas the Shattered Glass comics take place in another world that, while making references to several G1 stuff, is mostly an inverse of the Classics comics world, which itself is a splinter timeline of the Marvel G1 comics.
The TCC fiction takes place in multiple continuities, hence it being called "Transformers: Timelines". Of the worlds we've seen in that fiction, we've seen...
- The Cybertron cartoon
- An intermediate point in time between G1 and the Beast Era (but set in its own world)
- The Beast Era
- The Classicverse (itself splintered off from the Marvel G1 comics)
- The world of TransTech
- The Shatteredverse
- The Wings Universe (both the past and the future)
- The Animated cartoon
Some of the stories are connected, but those that span multiple continuities do so via characters dimension-hopping.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
