@  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?

June 29th 2014. That's a Sunday. Anyway, I'm very okay with Michael Bay doing Transformers 4. I think I read on Facebook somewhere that TF4 is planned to take place between ROTF and DOTM. That way, many of the Decepticons could "come back". Myabe we'll finally get to see the death of Skids and Mudflap. icon-fire.gif

Secret evil badguy (Straxus) is revealed to have had issues with Megatron in the past and created a clone of him with Straxus' personality ... it then met Sentinal Prime... lost the cube and however the hell the fallen fits in there.

movie 4.. THE REAL MEGATRON WAKES UP AND BRINGS SKYWARP BRUTICUS and Slipstream to earth after hearing Prime's repeated signals that that's where he is.

What I am excited about: More possible movie toys, possible continuation of the Human Alliance range, possible actual release of Human Alliance Soundwave.

What I am not excited about: Michael Bay. After ROTF, I actually thought they would make a better film with DOTM... no, turns out I really just can't stand Michael Bay. Do you know how many films Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has starred in since DOTM? None. Because every other director on the planet is not a hugging idiot.

I know it will make as much difference as a leaf in a snowstorm, but I am not paying to see this film.

I'm glad to see another movie being made, and I really am not so disappointed that Bay is at the helm once again *Ducks multiple thrown objects from the bay haters!* My only concern is... Who's left to terrorize the Earth and make trouble for the Autobots to go into action against? Most every Decepticon that was even mentioned in the movies are now dead or offlined. Unicron? Hard to get him into the story without some really shaky plot twists. Thunderwing? meh... Jhiaxus? Too obscure a character to sell to anyone other than the really dedicated fans, regular moviegoers won't know jack about him.

Hoping that this one will be a reboot (If that happens) that can be appreciated by both new and old fans alike without slapping either fandom in the face or blatantly insulting the longtime fans of the genre.

I've no problem with Bay helming things still, other than wanting to see what others might have had to offer. I don't mind Bay's style as much as many do; he just needs to be reined in and supplied with a decent script. And kept the hell away from deserts. I hope they stick to launching it in 2014 at the earliest, not moving it up a year even to holiday 2013.

What I have more of an issue with is the look for some characters -- particularly the frontrunners Prime, Bee, etc -- needs to evolve a step as I think even the general public might be getting burnt out on them [I know I am].

Plot-wise, it might be to their benefit to start with a mostly-new batch of characters [Decepticon-wise they have almost no choice]. But I'd love to see them try their hand at prequels, so they can keep the earlier cast and possibly even flesh them out a bit. Then again, this might end up giving the characters either Cybertronian-only bodies or forms similar to the first film's...

EDIT: Oh, now it's a "re-imagining" apparently. Hurm.

Actually I think Hasbro is going to have learned their lesson with DotM and pull a G.I. Joe Retaliation and have a scaled back line compared to the first 3 movies.

At least that's what I hope.

Well, I can't say i'm surprised. The amount of money the third film made basically sealed the deal. I imagine that Paramount literally drove a dumptruck full of cash up to Bay's mansion.

Even though I enjoyed the reaction to "Give me your face" and ax-murder-to-the-head Prime, even i'm getting tired of the movie-verse as it is.

Well, these guys are obviously professionals, so i'm sure they'll put something together that makes ridiculous amounts of money. I just hope it's coherent.

You know, to this day I still love part 1. What a great, stupid, fun movie that was. I bought the Barricade toy soon as I could. He was the only movie-toy I ever (and will ever) bought.

Part 2 and 3 just didn't do it for me. But it's with part 3 that I feel we saw what Bay could do when he was at the top of his game. More robot carnage than ever before. More giant set pieces and explosions and a movie over 2 1/2 hours long to accomplish everything he wanted. But to me, the whole thing just felt hollow and soulless. I left the theater for the 2nd time in a row feeling underwhelmed by a Transformers movie.

Maybe if someone would actually churn out a good script, Bay could make something worthwhile. Maybe. But now it's a reboot?? Why a reboot? Part 1 only just came out 5 years ago. What in the world do we need a reboot for? To try and get it right this time? Sorry, but that's not going to happen. It's another Michael Bay film. He's already had three tries. It's just not going to happen.

I'm honestly considering just skipping this one. All I'm feeling is disinterest and apathy. I just don't care about TF4.

The point is that Bay focuses so heavily on effects, on realistic military doings, and not incidentally on big explosions, that the whole "heart and magic" thing got totally lost in the shuffle in RotF and didn't exist at all with DotM.

I don't CARE how he gets his film jets. I care about a good story. Can't he blow a little more of his budget on that instead of Air Force recruitment shots?

The prospect of the movie interests me, but if the design aesthetic stays the same as the last three, I'm going to be saving a lot of money for a few months.

They'll probably make them more G1 like to give us the illusion that it's going to be a much better movie (we, the fans, are additional cash cows, while the primary cash cows - the general audience will go to see it either way).
