Monzo - the face really resembles the Alt. face, but the helmet doesn't. In fact, the helmet doesn't resemble any prior form of Swindle. But I am fine with that. The whole block-head Swindle we know and love is all because his head was a combiner peg... it's time we moved past that.
Btw, if nothing else, Vortex as a Cybertronian helicopter will clarify even to the strongest doubters that Cybertron does have an atmosphere. (I wonder why some people were doubting it even after we have been introduced to Springer...)
I wonder where Bruticus' double backpack-guns will come from - in the FOC intro he has them, but WFC Onslaught only has small guns on his back.
I can't wait to see the alt modes of Vortex and Blast-Off.

That speculation aside, a small part of me wants to nitpick slightly about Swindle's head or Brawl being two barreled like Onslaught, tiny G1 fanboy things.... But, well, NO I WILL NOT DO THAT. Getting 5 G1 inspired deluxe Combaticons that form Bruticus is a HONEST TO HASBRO MIRACLE that I will do nothing but rejoice over. Holy Cow!
-ZacWilliam, wow. Can I say Wow again? Wow. Can't wait to see the others.
I think TWW (so, Don) started the whole two-barrelled Brawl thing. It was a merging of his turret gun and the dual sonic cannons the G1 character had on his alt. mode.
I am OK with this, because,well, I always found two-barrelled tanks awesome ever since I played C&C.
The only Combaticon I am iffy about is Onslaught - he used to be a long multi-wheeled thing with loooong dual barrells, now he is a compact truck with barely non-existent cannons. But I like his robot mode, so that evens it out.
