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.

This is EPIC. Fluttershy wrestling a bear, Rainbow Dash dropping the rainbow nuke, Rarity's couch... icon-hotrod.gif And of course, the many crazy antics of Twilight. Man, I missed this show during the summer.

Also, in one shot, we see Twilight and the others from above (first time, I think) - and that answers our old question - yes, ponies have cute mark on both sides. icon-hotrod.gif

And hey, they even put Derpy in the opening!

Nope, they are new. I bet we'll have some "Old Ponies' Home" scene in an upcoming episode.

Man, must say, the huge pile of ponies (including the Mayor) all surrounding Big Macintosh will lead to a lot of fanfics of 'that' nature. But regardless, that scene was hilarious. Loved how Derpy gets her eyes derped back again once the spell is dispelled.

And besides all the fun in the episode, Celestia's talk at the end and the whole lesson was a quite heartwarming one. As a kid, I have been a model student myself, and I know what it feels like to be thinking that you have let your teacher/mentor down... when in truth you were just over-reacting.

Okay, that was awesome. The Sonic RainBomb did it for me, as well as FS wrestling a bear. I like how Spike saved the day. Big Mac is golden, as he is every time we see him. And I actually really like Angry Celestia. We need more of her.

Of course, this was an important episode, because we can not get a lesson in every episode for the EI rating, without forcing Twilight to be in every episode.

Any idea where this goes in the timeline? I think summer, possibly before Dragon Shy. They don't seem to know eachother as well as in the DisQord Saga, and Fluttershy is still phobic of everything (according to Twilight)
I had a better signature... then it ran away. MLP card trade list. MLP blind bag trade list.

And of course Celestia was awesome. Now she actually flies and even jumps.

It's not the first time she's flown. But it is the first time she's teleported.

But when she appeared, it was like an old 80's family-friendly alien movie, particularly ET when the ship returns for him. She's just throwing beams of light everywhere like air-to-ground search lights.

I'd say sometime in late/mid-spring. Possibly even after Winter Wrap-up. The weather's warming-up, the skies are clear and sunny. Why wouldn't they want to invoke the right of Spring Fever and have a picnic?
Also, Twilight's mind was slipping. She clearly wasn't having rational thoughts.

Pluto is now ignored, but the name still sticks.

Cosplay maybe? Show and tell snap on wings? A bigger Celestia fangirl than Twilight? Sneaking into Magic Kindergarden to spy on the unicrons?

I really enjoyed this one. The updated opening was good; it was about time the CMC were included in it. The facial expressions were priceless, and this definitely tops Swarm of the Century for how deranged we've seen Twilight. There were some seriously creepy vibes in her scene with the Crusaders, though, lol (unfortunately, a bit reminiscent of a certain fanon incarnation of Celestia)... and materializing inside the ball and destroying it seems almost like something Discord would do. She seemed extremely comfortable with teleporting in this episode, whenever it took place. I wonder if that kind of unhinged state of mind is one of the things that's more conducive for performing that kind of unusual magic. The Dinky and Ruby sightings were welcome, too; I hope we see more of both this season.
