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.

Can we change the title to "Liege Overreacts"? This doesn't look like a crossover thread anymore.

All this over reaction upsets me because now I can't give the bronies a light hearted teasing without everyone jumping out of the woodwork to defend them against my weak ass joke.

It's ok to be a non-fan of something without throwing around al this hate and anger. Bronies for the most part are keeping to themselves. They know how to respect the non-fans and not cram it down our throats, at east on this board. So let's give the hate a rest.

I'm not gonna lock this thread as I hope people can maybe discuss this a bit without personal attacks and maybe come to an understanding of sorts.

And FP, please, stop talking about yourself so much. We wanna talk about toys, not your personal history.

Perhaps in an attempt to re-rail the thread...

The other day, I had Beast Wars 2 Moon down off the shelves. That toy is just bizarre when compared to the other Beast Wars toys and... I must say, he did have me wondering what a MLP Transformer would look like.

Then I thought what that would mean for the MLP character, and was kinda creeped out. A cute and cuddly little girls' character getting torn to pieces during the process of turning it into a robot. The imagery is a little disturbing.

Seeing as Transformers is a multiverse, galazy and universe spanning scifi adventure property (when it isn't stuck on earth). I could see how this would work, in the fiction anyway. The Decepticons invade whatever planet the ponies live on, subjugating them through military conquest, and start converting friendship and/or magic into energon. The ponies, now a slave race of drones, mind controlled through various means need a hero, one rises up, and the Autobots show up to try and free these poor beaten and oppressed equines. You could get a good story out of it, maybe.

However, my interest in this would be on the same level I have for the other crossover properties (Marvel, Star Wars), little to none.

I don't think a crossover would be too hard to put together, a groundbridge malfunction or teleportation spell accident could pretty much account for everything.

I dunno, I can't find it any more creepy than any of the Beast Wars TFs, which for the most part I don't really find creepy.

But for Beast Wars, we were introduced to the robots first. We know that the "animals" aren't really animals.

If it was an existing cuddly cartoon character, though, unhinging the head for the first time would definitely feel more like decapitation. No?

Hmm, I see what you mean, but at the same time it just makes me want to see a crossover even more. icon-fire.gif

Yes.

ONE OF US, ONE OF US, ONE OF US.


Seriously, Nerds (myself included) have the problem of being over zealous about their (our) enjoyment of certain things. If you like one thing they (we) like, then you must be more like them (us) then you realize! It's an acceptance thing, after a lifetime of being outcasts, they (we) want their (our) group to be as large and inclusive as possible. If it is attacked it must be defended, if you like it at all you are a part of the group, etc, etc. Even the act of embracing what originated as an insult as some sort of moniker is an extension of this.

And then, eventually you get over that, live your life and stop caring about that sort of thing. You like ponies? Great, who cares?

Oh yes, I forgot about these. Some Botcon set concepts I whipped up, using the usual 'limited molds / new heads' thing. Obviously difficult because most Transformers are male and the ones that are supposed to be female generally look like hookers.

Blur as Pinkie Pie... that's... inspired, actually. Although it would be better if it were G1 Blur. Most of those are really good choices, as far as I understand the characters (I don't actually watch the show, but I love the fan culture - I'm weird like that). I'm now imagining a situation in which G1 Blur and Pinkie Pie have an adventure together... it would be the single fast-talking-est show ever.

I've... never noticed any kind of 'one of us' thing with MLP... then again, that sort of thing doesn't work on me, so maybe I'm just missing it. I could understand though, when the default negative reaction seems to be 'one of them'.

The boxset is a little too pastel for my tastes, but I'd totally buy Applejack and Luna at retail. Maybe not as those characters per se, but the way their colors apply to those molds is great.
