@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

Good thing the things I'm looking forward to are a ways off. D-Arts hasn't even started yet, and it's obvious that Beelzemon there is an unfinished figure, so I'm fine on that front. Seravee 3G shouldn't be coming out anytime soon, either. And they're certainly not going to spring a Chogokin release on us without warning, so I'm fine on Escaflowne.


Which is good, because I'm tapped out for the next little bit, just having paid for a Koenig Monster and a PlayArts Odin, as well as a healthy complement of smaller items.


[edit] Knew that release date was a little bit quick, since they usually give retailers enough time to solicit pre-orders and whatnot. Pre-orders for Kazuma are up already, but according to Amiami, he's not out until January.

Why does HLJ say "October Release", then?

HLJ pre-orders are tricky. Let's say they have a Gundam kit which is due in for September. All their info beforehand will tell customers that's when they'll have it. However, should no stock emerge by the end of the month it'll be listed for October. If no stock continues to arrive, the month will just keep going and going and going...seriously, I've seen them do it for things like trading figures where they never get a certain set in but somehow manage to get the one before and after just fine. I've even got some Gunpla on order from them all due this month, yet they list some of them as far as December.
There's also the fact that HLJ effectively declared war on Amiami this week, saying they're doing away with Japanese retail price in favour of more competitive discounted prices for all items. Since they seem to be taking their competition more seriously, I'd say all the evidence is good enough to at least suspect they rushed all these new items up for pre-order with no real release date info simply not to lose customers.

Meanwhile, I think waiting until January for stuff that was hinted at 8 months ago is insane. Bandai works in mysterious ways, plus these figures are fully colored and appear to be ready for production, which is not something Bandai usually has 4 months in advance.

I think that someone goofed and these items ARE being released in October.

Bandai can and will announce stuff that is ready, only to sit on it. Perfect examples- the missile container version of HG Kyrios and the Sangokuden Real Grade kits. The fact that a thing looks ready to go doesn't mean it will. I can't claim to have a definitive answer here, but I will be amazed if they dump all this out in one month after showing it an expo.

It's not EVERYTHING, though.

3 Damashii and 3 Figuarts in one month isn't outlandish for Bandai.

Nobody's saying every single thing shown at Tamashii Nation is coming out next month...

And what the hell are you talking about, anyway? Neither one of those things exist!

HG Kyrios has been shown a ton of times. There are even unused polycap ports in the existing kits legs which were designed to accomodate it. Likewise, about a year ago Bandai announced kits of Zeta and Double Zeta styles as Chouhi and Kanu were under planning.
Both examples were ultimately abandoned, despite a great deal of work having been put into them (Kyrios in particular would have been very easy, all they need was to mass produce the missile container component).

It's a list of planned D-Arts. Here's the translation. I did not translate this list and I don't read Japanese. However I have checked if the Kanji matchs on many of these and they do so I think it's correct. If someone that does read Japanese wants to double check, please do.

-Imperialdramon
-Dukemon
-Beelzebumon (Shown unless they mean Burst Mode, which I hope)
-Paildramon
-Diablomon
-Susanoomon
-Alphamon (Makes me want Omegamon/Omnimon more)
-Shinegreymon
-Mugendramon

Rockman Series:
-Zero (Rockman X)
-Zero (Rockman Zero)
-X (Rockman X)
-Rockman (Rockman EXE)
-Forte

Medarot (Medabots) Series:
-Rokusho
-Granbeetle
-God Emperor
-Blazermate
-Arc Beetle
-Sonic Stag

Others:
-Samus Aran (Metroid)
-Knight Blazer (Wild Arms 2)

I think the list is perfect in the sense of being fairly predictable. All the lead characters' final forms and a few other big ones. While there's some I like, most of my favs aren't listed/shown outside of Beelzemon. Of course, they could always make others along side these so nothing's set in stone. Personally, I'm hoping for Leomon at some point.

Kaiyodo has been after me all year starting with the Revoltech transformable Macross jets. I skipped to wait for the sure to happen Max colors. Then they made Trigun, which were a must. Then they killed themselves with those tiny overpriced Zoids. And somewhere along the way, I preordered Lupin III. Now Bandai's is after me. I'm already deciding who I want the most so I can get who I really want. Wargreymon might be the first to go so I can get Kazuma, but that's a tough choice.

That's pretty well exactly what BBTS does. Allspark Almanac 2 was August. Now it still says September, but I expect it to move to October soon. This gets really annoying when you have a pile of loot and keep wating for that final item. Especially since their inventory system occasionally is crap and you find out at shipping time that they didn't really hold something for you. That's fun when it's now too late to order something anywhere else except jacked up on ebay.
