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 had an odd moment yesterday. I stopped off at Wallyworld for some D&D fuel, and of course hit up the TF section. The shelves were flooded with DotM figs, everything you can imagine except for the one I wanted, Skyhammer. But for kicks, I poked through the deluxes and paused over Roadbuster.

I dunno, he seemed kinda cool to me in a way, even with all that Nascar decoing on him. I was thinking about buying him, but I stopped and said to myself "You despise Nascar in all its forms. You know you could never have this guy sitting out in vehicle mode, it would be shameful to you! Besides... it's a movie toy, he's going to get recolored eventually..."

And I put him down. I'll wait and see what battle for the Allspark variation we unleash this time around. Maybe by then they will have fixed the deluxe Mechtech weapons to stay open...

So my question is: Anyone else ever look at a figure and say "Hey, this guy is cool, but I think I am going to wait for the redeco"?
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Often with the Movie stuff. But then they don't redeco it or it ends up in a deco I like even less than the original. icon-fire.gif

Or in the case with Sideways (I never picked him up) the one I want never comes out (see the one with the 3 Arcee Legends).

Right now the only toy I'm waiting for a repaint of is Voyager Megatron (In hopes that they apply more obvious paint ops. He looks so naked!). All the rest I either liked the first colors, or more likely, I'm passing on entirely.

Reveal the Shield Lugnut. I've had opportunities, and don't get me wrong, he looks nice, but I'm holding out hope that Dark of the Moon or whatever follows it can somehow give us the mold in a nice purple and teal scheme that echoes his Animated incarnation.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

The most recent ones for me are Reveal the Shield Deluxe G2 Optimus Prime, and Dark of the Moon Deluxe Starscream.
Starscream already has his repaint announced, so hopefully I don't have to wait long for that. Will probably have to wait for the next iteration of classics for the Prime repaint though.

Deluxe TF.M Starscream, I'm holding out for a G1 paint job.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Nope.

However, given my natural tendency for rambling, I shall expound upon what seems like a simple answer. Generally I either like a figure or I don't, or else buy it because of a need to be a completest. Now sometimes I will pick something up I skipped because a re-release with mild retooling and/or new color scheme will appeal to me, however this isn't usually something I wait for because with the exception of black repaints, I don't know I'll like it before hand.

...

Yes, I am one of "those" fans who can't resist a black repaint. To be fair, I have a hard time resisting green and purple repaints as well, those just seem to be less common. I decided to torment myself by swinging by the toy isle the other day and the Green Lantern toys were right by the TFs, getting my hopes up.
Jesus loves you!

...

No, really!

I pass on many figures waiting for the redeco. For example, with WfC Megs and Prime, I like the molds but I don't need another Megs or Prime, so I am hoping for something new down the line. I thought about passing on Terradive and Tomahawk too but ended up getting them.

Passing over Roadbuster was probably a good idea. Even without the multiple QC issues I've heard from folks (and mine as well), he's very lackluster in compared to a lot of the other DOTM guys.

That said, I'm not so sure you'll get a non-NASCAR redeco out of him. They're specifically licensed by NASCAR, to the point that official NASCAR & Hendrick Motorsports logos, stickers, and such are plastered all over the back of the packaging. That's more than just the logos on the car, too - it applies to the car itself, and the body of it. So I wouldn't expect a non-NASCAR redeco of him, as that's just... what he is. XD;

Yeah, I don't really care which of the potential characters he gets repainted into.
Scourge/Black Convoy, Ultra Magnus, and Toxitron all sound good to me.

I didn't buy Breacher because I was waiting for the RTS redeco in dark green.

I picked up a Breacher today, noticing it was marked down to half price in Wilko, seeing as the redeco is essentially cancelled now.
