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.

Doesn't help that every single carded Deluxe is an Autobot (even Mindset the guy who was supposed to be a Decepticon), and 3 of the 4 Voyagers are Autobots too. Even the Scouts (where there are the most Decepticons to Autobots) are still out numbered 2 to 3.

This is almost like the Henkei! Henkei! lineup, but at least they had like another 5 to 6 Decepticons that were exclusives to add to the 7 normal releases (plus Ravage and Nightstick).

Meh, whatever. Since Bodyblock is probably going to become G2 Rook for me, it's easy as pie to resticker him, and ignore the random packaging blurb. I see the silver borders are back on the rubsigns, it seems like these must be the miniature ones they're starting to use on the Legends. It would be hard to find a flat surface large enough for a standard sized rubsign on a lot of the Scout toys we've gotten lately.

Deep Dive, Nightstick, Starscream, Megatron. Potentially Frenzy if they make him, and I'd guess we will get Starscream redecoed into Thundercracker and Skywarp.

You forgot Trailcutter and Prowl for Autobots.

Also we have a lot of potential repaint/remolds still unaccounted for who may end up in RTS and could be Decepticons... Thunderwing, Lugnut, Gen 2 Optimus, Tomahawk, Scourge and Wreck-Gar will get remolds.

Also remember that Reveal the Shield is just a gimmick of a part of the 2010 "Transformers" line, which includes the yellowbox, redbox, Generations, all those mini-cons... if you count the Seacons reissue that's 6 more Decepticons in the Transformers line. Do they have rub signs? If not they should.

PCC is Decepticon heavy at the moment, I think.

Look at the list above a couple posts (I added the Legends). Not going to count Nightstick as a separate guy. We can't count any retools/redecos that may or may not come out. Even one like Frenzy (the guy I call Rumble).

Even if they did come out I doubt we'd get solid waves of Decepticons (like we did with Autobot Deluxes).

Power Core Combiners and Generations are pretty evenly split between factions. RtS is overabundant in Autobots.
