Goodnight, everybody!

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

Goodnight out there... whatever you are!

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:58 PM)

I've seen Minority Report, I don't want to read the same thing except with superheroes and also shit

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

@  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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:22 PM)

Are you not seeing the recursiveness of "G2 is the true G1 sequel because G2 follows up on a G2 storyline"?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:18 PM)

Yeah it has been established that Marvel Transformers and G I Joe comics takes place in the same universe. Unless 90s G I Joe was a reboot I'm pretty sure the G2 crossing over to a G I Joe comic that takes place in the very same universe as the original Transformers makes G2 the canon ending.

Of course I left Bumblebee. icon-waspy.gif Might want to prioritize these on your hunt if you want a Sideswipe with decent paint apps, though.

Sadly the Primes were still cased up, and I didn't feel like opening them myself, but believe me when I say you won't have any problem getting one, they had three solid cases full at this one rinky-dink store.

I very highly recommend Sideswipe. He's so pretty.

He's been out over here in Sainsbury's for a few weeks now and he flies off the shelves. BB warms them in his absence. Grab him while you can.

I already liked this mould, but the new colour scheme is a beauty and matches well with Topspin (not 100%, but close enough).

Glad Optimus won't be hard to find, but I'm sure we'll be seeing him for a long time to come (maybe; it's about the right price and character to be a big seller for Christmas).

Don't care for the other two.

Weird. I had no problems at all with Sidearmswipe or Rallyswipe. Both head mechanisims work great on mine.

And good lord, this toy looks BEAUTIFUL in person. Pictures can't convey how vibrant he looks in person.

Eh, I think i don't like the SASS repaint because of its yellow head (just doesn't work well, to me) and the fact that it's the closest they've come to doing Tracks from this mold, but it's clearly not him. Nor does it make a good Sunstreaker.

Also, went back to WM again today; no exclusives yet. I settled on using my gift card for DOTM Voy Megatron and the GL: Emerald Knights DVD.

Absolutely. It's really a great mold; one of the best movieverese deluxe cars there is.

Also, anyone have both deluxe Optimus and Voy Megatron? I'm kinda hoping that they're roughly in scale in vehicle mode.
