Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  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.

That settles it then. When I finally go to a Botcon, and I will, I'll wear a 3-piece suit and tie.

There's always a good mix of people at Botcon, from people that most would consider well above average who have good hygiene, to many that you wonder if they ever leave the house. The key is to get a good group of people to come and enjoy the convention with you, and see the people watching aspect as nothing more than a fun diversion for the weekend.

I'm not sure what "well dressed" really means anyway. It's mostly a jeans and t-shirt kind of event, with a slightly dressier side in the semi-formal dinner on Saturday night.

So I guess you would say that the first rule of being a BotCon attendee is "Stick Together"? icon-waspy.gif

I can only imagine that those videos aren't exactly focusing on the 'normal' people there, as they would be pretty boring. I mean, which would you find more amazing/shocking? A bunch of greasy out-of-their-heads nerds and people in silly costumes or a bunch of clean cut, washed people in t-shirts and jeans sitting and listening to some other equally clean-looking person talk for half an hour about the upcoming figures and comics?

I don't personally care for themed t-shirts, but Annoying Host Guy pulls it off a decent outfit with one. There are options besides suits and ill-fitting shirts and jeans! (All denim shorts are to be thrown in a fire to appease our Predacon overlords.)

I tend to wear slacks... well, okay, I ALWAYS wear slacks, never been a fan of jeans... and a simple collared shirt. Nothing fancy, but nothing ratty. The dinner, I'll break out a silk shirt, and probably a tie next year Just Because.

The ratty clothes are for the drive to BC. I really could not give a crap less about my appearance in the middle of a day-long car trip in summer.

Heck, I've been to job fairs where people insisted upon dressing as tacky as possible; jive like that just doesn't bother me any more.

I recall one time in which a girl insisted upon wearing what could only be charitably described as "skank wear." When she squatted down in order to fill out an application, she ended up flashing her butt (tramp stamp and all) to no less than three sets of recruiters.

Of course, that was the same job fair in which we had a recruiter in tie-die...
