@  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.

I would cancel my BBTS preorder but I got a 1.5 box so I could get Cliffjumper. Somehow I suspect that while finding Prime toys in a TRU store will be difficult, finding one somewhat short-packed toy in a refresh case will be next to impossible. I guess if they put him online I could pick him up, but not sure it would be worth it. If I can sell my extra deluxes on Ebay for a decent amount, I can get a better-than retail price:

Deluxe 1.5 case after shipping estimate: 109.49
Sell:
BB 14.99
BB 14.99
SS 16.99
CJ 20.99
Cost of remaining figures: 41.53 = $10.38/figure for 4 deluxes. Better than TRU prices or TRU.com prices if shipping was free, and that's if they even had Cliffy available.

Voyagers aren't quite as attractive but again, I anticipate Bulkhead may be tough to come by:
Voyager case after shipping estimate: 104.49
Prime 25
Prime 25
Cost of remaining figures: 54.49 = $27.25 per figure. TRU price is usually $19.99 and right now Voyagers are on sale for $15 on the website.

They've been out in Toronto a couple of days now. Ironically, your BBTS orders were probably a good idea. I finally went down to my local TRU today, and aside from the Entertainment Pack, all they had were like 10+ bumblebees. All the other deluxes were already gone.

I'm sticking with my pre-orders for now. There's exactly one Toys R Us within regular driving distance of where I live and it's a mini-sized store in one of those shopping mall center things. Not exactly somewhere that's going to have a huge selection of stuff.

That, and I'm short of money at this time, so having it reserved for later gives me the chance to scrape together what I need.

$44 and change, in Canadian dollars for the Entertainment pack. I actually don't recall the deluxe prices, but NightViper is probably right. I had intended to get the Entertainment Pack until I noticed that price. For some reason I thought it'd be cheaper. Maybe it's the DVD that I don't actually want.

...yes, all three Bumblebees would stay.

More likely, it's the three kids. They're the anomaly compared to other Entertainment Packs.

Keeping my preorder too. I've got a new baby, so while some careful budgeting means I can afford the toys without guilt, no amount of time management will allow me to run back and forth to TRU.

None at my local TRU and the lady behind the customer service desk checked the closest TRUs and nope, none nearby.

So I just ordered my Arcee at TRU.com. HOPEFULLY Starscream will still be in-stock next week before Black Friday...

I'll be keeping my BBTS preorder for Starscream, Bee, Arcee, and CJ, as well...the closest TRU is about 45 minutes away, and since they'll be added to my pile of loot at BBTS, it'll end up being around the same price as TRU.com considering shipping, tax, etc.

Found them at a TRU in Rockaway, NJ yesterday afternoon. Employee said there were 8 on the floor (I only saw 5), nothing in back. Grabbed to Bees, Arcee, and Screamer. No voyagers or entertainment pack. I almost missed them, on a lone pegs amongst the DOTM and Generations figs!

And I must say, Bumblebee is AWESOME.
