    Until we get in-package shots, we don't know.

    Although they'll more than likely be FoC, seeing how they'll be Generations either way, and slapping another logo to tie them in to a popular video game is probably a good marketing move.

    They're supposed to be the FoC Combaticons with Wrecker names and paint. Put them where ever the hell you want them. It's your collection.

    They have not appeared in any fiction. They may just be generic Wreckers until they appear in a story.

    Just look at WfC Optimus Prime. In the US Hasbro made him part of the TFPrime story, but in Japan Takara made him part of the G1 continuity! They can go either way.

    Sorry but that's pretty much how Hasbro sees it, I have little doubt. Their heads are from G1 comics artwork and their bodies are from video game Combaticons...which, themselves, have been used in G1 AND Prime comics already.

    I'll say FOC because Roadbuster aside, they absolutely fail at being good G1 representations.

    I think they are supposed to be part of the g1 multi vurse ( and yes thats would be right thinking about how many times g1 has been done over and over in the comics)

    I will be puting them as part of rodimusprimes group on my classics shelf, also thinking about it they did just recently appear in regenration and i think this maybe the only way we will see these wreckers ....

    Thinking of buying Impactor. I think he's the only version of that character made so far.
