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.

I think I actually envy the out-of-towners staying in hotels. On Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, it looks like I'll have to drive home and come back to get to everything (20-30 minutes each way, given traffic).

I think I understand. Although I don't envy them enough to pay all that extra hotel money (when I do have the option of going to my own home each night), there's something to be said for having a place to crash on-site mid-day. It's harder to just leave and come back if you have to go all the way home to do so.

Still, I can't complain. I'm getting by a lot cheaper than most folks.

Awesome about the script readings, and the fact that they're getting people from Transformers Prime to do a script reading too! I wonder who will be there?

They don't do it every year. Although I do note sadly that they seem to pick the Pasadena BotCons not to do it at, I can certainly understand that it's a struggle to keep fresh after doing it so often.

No space in the schedule for MSTF this year on the days the panel room is reserved for, which was the situation last year. There's a buttload of stuff going on, and, well, priorities.

Honestly, I'd almost rather it WAS due to you guys needing a break (more the point of my comment I think you're referencing re: "freshness"), especially since "too much going on" was the excuse made the last time it was in Pasadena. However legitimate that excuse is. We're kinda getting left out.

There was? I just missed it? (I wasn't at BotCon 2010 at all, so it's not about my being confused about which convention) If so, then I simply extend my apologies. I don't know how that happened, though....

(to be clear, I wasn't making any accusations that anyone was purposely avoiding Pasadena. Just pointing out what I thought was an unfortunate coincidence.)

I'm not going this year, so it doesn't affect me directly. But I'm still kinda bummed by this.

I'll be honest, the MST3K is a goofy fan-thing, yes, but its also been one of the most fun events at any of the Botcons I've been to. It's one of the more grassroots, fan based, fan-run feeling convention bits, yet still something non hardcore fans can really enjoy. It was EASILY the most fun panel for my wife when she came. She's not a big TF fan, but she really laughed and enjoyed the MST as much as I did.

Frankly MST3K IS a Botcon priority to me. It's #2 right behind the Hasbro preview panels for "must attend"

Even though I won't be there either way, I'm really very sorry to hear about it taking a backseat.
