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.

Captain America's Goliath makes a great Cobra vehicle right out of the box! Once I've done away with the Avengers logo, it'll be all Cobra. But really, the colors are already perfect, being more that dark "Cobra" blue with gray than the more patriotic blue you see on some Cap toys. It's pretty much the kinds of colors you see on the upcoming Fangboat.





Seats 2, plus another guy standing. Haven't tried it with RAH Joes yet.

It does look neat. With a touch ofpaint it could go from A for America to an Anarchy symbol. Too bad the rest of the colors don't really fit the Dreadnok look.

Hey, um, I'm not sure where to ask this but, I saw a page on TV Tropes that mentions some continuity connection between the live-action TF films and the Joe movies.

QUOTE
The Transformers Film Series and GI Joe the Rise of Cobra are canonically in the same universe, with there being suggestions that much of the advanced Joe tech came from studying Megatron's frozen body. In addition, Ratchet and Ironhide's vehicle forms can be seen in the Paris sequence. On the other hand, the Transformers movies don't suggest anything about GI Joe, also that they make mention to the actual Presidents of the time periods of the films (George W. Bush and Barack Obama) while GI Joe has their own President.
  • G.I. Joe is stated to be "In the near future," meaning that, by the time of the movie, the Autobot/Decepticon War could have ended/left Earth. In that case, one can believe that the futuristic technology of the film is an improvement over Sector 7 and NEST's current tech.
  • It's also impied that The Mummy Trilogy take place in the same Universe (Brendan Frazer says his character from G.I. Joe is a descendent of his character from the Mummy). This would also mean that The Scorpion King is set in this universe.

Is any of this actually true? Granted, that page has examples that don't look right anyway, but I need to make sure before doing any possible correction, and I haven't actually seen Rise of Cobra, so I need someone to explain.

There's absolutely no indication in ROC that it takes place in the same universe as any other movie. I'd refute the evidence from the TV Tropes page, except there isn't actually any evidence listed.

(I mean, maybe Brendan Fraser really did mention the Mummy thing in an interview or something, I don't know, but that still wouldn't even mean much)

Their actual page for Rise of Cobra says that the hint is from the novelization. Anyone can confrim or deny this?

Brenden Frazer did say in an interview or two that his Joe and Mummy characters were related. However, IIRC this seemed to be something that Somers just kind of decided as a little off-the-record fantasy nod. To take it as gospel/make it part of the canon would be an EXTREME reach.

As for the TF/Joe connection... being Hasbro properties, I find a meta-reference much more likely than actually being in the same universe. Assuming for a moment that a few TF vehicles did show up, sometimes an Easter egg is just an Easter egg. A couple of cars in the background of a shot does not actually invoke all this connection that's being drawn.

In other words, it sounds like a couple of in-jokes are being turned into something they aren't.

In fact Hasbro has been pretty clear about keeping the universes officially separate, the handful of crossover toys not-withstanding.

This way they can put them on "sale" for ONLY 7.99.

I'm just waiting for BBTS to put up preorders at this rate. Their per-figure case rate is usually on par if not lower than normal retail.

I'm kind of expecting this to be Hasbro's shoot-themselves-in-the-foot MSRP for the Retaliation figures, much like how the RoC figures came out at $8.99 while regular Joes had been $6.99 immediately before, meaning NOTHING MOVED UNTIL THE PRICE DROPPED. It only dropped a dollar, but still...

If that's the case all over, I guess I'll just go back and get a Phantom X-19, Cobra Mamba, and that weird TRU DtC HISS from right before Sigma 6 and call it quits on Joe purchasing for everything aside from the SDCC HISSwave.

If that's a future price for GI Joes, I'm going to be exiting the hobby short of the few 25th-style figures that might show up from time to time.

Check out my eBay sales.  Gotta pare down my massive collection into something more manageable.

Yeah, if this truly is the new price and not a stupid Target thing, it goes to show Hasbro learned nothing. RoC didn't just flop due to dull-looking figures... It was hurt immensely by pricing as evidenced by higher sales during mark downs.

Yeah, most of my collection grew as a result of the 2 for $10 deals that kept popping up.
I still cringe at the $8 that's already become the norm, but $11? F that.
