This Playstation 3 Message board will explain do you notice any familiar keyblades in the two pictures?
Well in the case for Sora (at least), he literally doesn't get a new Keyblade from each respective world he visits, but instead gets Keychains which upgrade the blade.
The keychain changes the Keyblade's physical form and it also harnesses abilities, from which the Keyblade can draw.
To get a more detailed and clear view on the matter, go here.
But moving towards your link, that's a very nice observation. You're right, certain Keyblades do resemble, and I'll honestly admit that I have absolutely no idea what it's supposed to mean. However, that's what the upcoming title "Birth By Sleep" is supposed to clear; the subject of the Keyblade War. Which is the screenshot you showed us.
You mustn't forget, that that scene is supposed to take place 10 years
before the events of Kingdom Hearts. I don't know what - at the moment all I know is "Keyblade War", which certainly has to do with the mass of keyblades found there - but something must have happened for all of that to spur. I'd also like to reiterate a comment someone made in that thread, about how the Keyblades are keychainless.
But still, Axel was based off Reno, and they're both quite the ownage, what with the red tatoos/hair and carefree persona.
Troof about the persona thing though. And hair, I'm a sucka for gingers. D;
...*Flaming* gingers, rather.
