@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

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

@  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.

That's why I say Louisville.. not just because I live here but because it's, has its own large airport, is cheap.. has more stuff to do than Lexington and is central.

The downtown convention center could easily accommodate Botcon and there's lots of hotels. As well as 4th Street Live which is a lot of bars and eateries within walking distance.




If it's good enough for the Kentucky Derby, it's good enough for Botcon icon-waspy.gif

I'd love it to be in Louisville. My parents and siblings live there, so it's almost as good as being in Pasadena for the "in my own backyard" thing.

Which is also why I don't push it too hard. I've been absurdly fortunate already.

Wtf, you live in Louisville? Why haven't you ever joined any of the KY get-togethers? I know we set them up on the TFW boards, but still. Last one was awesome, we held it at Megamus' house, probably had 15-20 people at one point. My ass attends them, and I live south of Nashville!

Anywho's, I just hope it's somewhere I can drive this next year. I'm a little burnt out on flying the past few years. I'll go either way (barring unforeseen circumstances like in 2010 with the whole "oh the baby's going to be born on the first day of BotCon"), but I always hate playing the "fit everything into luggage Tetris style" (because I'm too cheap to ship things).

I'm surprised we haven't heard anything yet - well, not really, but I want to be surprised. You'd think after SEVEN YEARS of these things FP would finally have things ironed out to the point where they could announce the next-year's convention early enough. Then again, according to Pete on the club boards, Hasbro can hold them back, or something, from being able to pick where to have it earlier.
