@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 12:30 PM)

Marvel 616 is also a massive continuity snarl from dozens of writers altering, retconning, or ignoring each others' work for decades, so it's not really a great example for an argument on continuity.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:29 PM)

Marvel 616 continuity is a shared universe, devastating events happens in individual series but does mean every event gets mentioned in other comics? @Notvery knightly, yeah that's why I edited that post.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:27 PM)

Your proof for "TF universe = Joe universe" itself is the G2 lead-up, so your reasoning still goes back to G2 matching G2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 12:25 PM)

So did GI Joe ever reference the time Bludgeon sent his entire force to rampage across the Earth? Or the time Jhiaxus blew San Francisco into a crater?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:25 PM)

whatever.

Not sure on the magazine, sorry. Believe the images for the exclusives are new though, seem to be the final versions as opposed to previous mockups.

Whoa, he's actually an evil Prime for once! I do believe those are Con symbols on Prime. He and Megs look sweet; always have had a thing for these types of repaints.

Well golly, TakaraTomy actually made a black Optimus redeco that's a Decepticon! Both him and Megatron really look great!

Comparison of previous mockup photos to the actual toy/new publicity photos.

Before:
cybertron_opvsmeg.jpg

After:
21kjq84_crop.jpg

Definitely an improvement in my opinion, and glad to see Optimus as a Decepticon (as much as I hate how a lot of users on another board always refer to a black Optimus as Nemesis Prime/Scourge, it's nice to see one actually be one). I think these two look great.

Apparently I'm the only one talking about these but Megatron reminds me a lot of his new form in the IDW comics, which is very cool!

Would have been kinda interesting to see a heroic "White Megatron" to counter Black Convoy. Still, that Megs is pretty nice looking.


ZacWilliam, yes White Megatron would take some creative decking to look different enough...

Probably wouldn't matter too much to TakaraTomy, considering their United Cybertronian Megatron is a very dark gray and not very light gray like Hasbro's.

I'm kinda not interested in the Black Prime now, before I liked him becuase he looked like pre-earth mode of the SDCC version, which I have. Now he's just the standard all black which is boring in comparison.

I think the teal highlights and red windows are much more exciting looking than the very dark version we saw before (as everything was all kind of the same level - the dark teal and the black). Though he did look like a Cybertron version of Universe Nemesis Prime. I prefer the stark contrast of the teal and red against the black.

I have to say I feel the same way. As cool as it would have been to get a pre-Earth SDCC Nemesis Prime...That color scheme just looks so bland on this mold.

So adding the teal and red and contrasting those and the silver against pure black really does make for a more visually interesting color scheme. Even if it's just more of the same Black Convoy/Convoy Black Vers. concept.

Ah teal, such an evil color..apparently.
I wonder who decided that and why. I know the the first toy/character to us it was Black Lio Convoy.

Red too, but only as a highlight.

Even the original lucky draw Black Lio Convoy used gold instead of teal, it was the TRU exclusive one that used teal first.

I think it was Car Robots Black Convoy that really solidified it (since it wasn't used on the Black reissue Convoy, Black Fire Convoy, or Black Big Convoy).

But it's used on plenty of the heroic Black Convoys/Optimus too (Henkei, Animated, Masterpiece).

I was particularly excited for the megs mock up, I hadn't opened my United WFC Megs because of it, I may have to re-think that policy now icon-blitz.gif

Oh well At least I can better justify getting a Stepper since these two are an easy pass.

Not when it's complimented with a nice bright silver, bright teal, and vibrant red. The original mockup was just kind of ho-hum dark repaint. This has some pop to it! icon-hotrod.gif
