    So one arm is definitely Starscream. The other looks a LOT like Armada Thrust.

    I'd bet the truck is Soundwave. Starscream and Thrust? Whos the leg and the torso?

    That looks kind of hideous, but if that's Armada Thrust I'm all in.

    Any ideas on blue Offroad and white/orange Rook? Also that torso might be toy colors Galvatron homage, but then who's the actual robot?

    It would be interesting if the blue truck is Crankcase, to go with the club Ruckus and Windsweeper that are forthcoming..

    Defo Starscream and Soundwave.

    The other two I have no clue. What a weird departure from what I was expecting.

    It looks like:

    CW Cyclonus = Energon Megatron/Galvatron
    CW Air Raid = Starscream
    CW Slingshot = Armada Thrust
    CW Off-Road = Soundwave
    CW Rook = Snowcat or Demolisher?

    i think your right. they've all been in the unicron trilogy (at least the names) and it'll go along with the optimus super mode theme.

    For a split second I thought maybe the blue Offroad could be a blue Trailbreaker mold. Would that be the first Diaclone homage from this line?

    DUDES!

    Maybe we'll see that random Onslaught Demolishor head on Rook's body for a rad Japan-original Demolishor?? Although given the coloring is greyish, maybe it's a weird Armada Galvatron-themed recolor of Rook...

    I think this is some sort of mad inter generational combiner.

    The Starscream is blatantly G1, and Thrust Armada. The only pickup like Soundwave I can think of is the Animated version. That could possibly leave the white and orange Rook as Wreckage.

    Need to see more of the core. Wonder if it has a new robot, as opposed to combined, mode head?

    This is the first UW I will buy without hesitation. Love that all five are new characters/looks.
