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.

Could it be one of the guys from the upcoming set? Just wondering: he looks familiar but I can't place him (not that my knowledge is anywhere near the level of Walky).

Oh, and how long before someone can take the preview pages, and edit the word balloons so the discussion is all about Overlord's poutty lips?

Ursa Magnus being in Axiom Nexus does present something of a plot hole.

There are no lowtech Primes, Magnuses, Hot Rods, Starscreams, Megatrons, or any of their doppelgangers in Axiom Nexus. On purpose. You know, to keep trouble from happening. Those folks get kicked out before they even know they're in it, booted back to their home universe. I would think Ursa Magnus would be included in that.

Were Magnuses included in that rule? I always thought it was just applicable to Primes/Convoys and Megatrons.

For Ursa, if this helps, "Magnus" is a rank handled in the same way "Prime" and such was in the Animated continuity. I always handled it in the following order: Minor, Major, Maximus, Magnus, Prime. So he has the rank of Magnus, and nothing more. No different than having a military title of Lieutenant-Commander or Commander under a Captain.

He is in no way related to or descended from Ultra Magnus. He's just a guy who got promoted to that rank in his dimension's military hierarchy.

Well, specifically "Matrix-bearers" and "charismatic leader-types."

Ultra Magnuses have Matrices in several continuities. And in Animated, Magnus is the top-ranking everything, making him the Optimus Prime-analog of that continuity family.

Also, we've never seen a lowtech Magnus in an Axiom Nexus story.

Granted.

Heh, well I guess it's something I never had to really consider given that he's a fan character and I never thought he'd get an actual TFWiki entry.

And Axiom Nexus made sense from a story perspective given what happened to him at the end of Drivaaar's "Out of Time" story. It made sense that thrown through time might end him up in Axiom Nexus. Plus, Pete was kind enough to allow me to use it as the setting for the Allspark Sourcebook.

And... maybe we should continue this discussion to the Wiki thread? I don't want to derail discussion of the pages any more than necessary.

We have seen a Lowtech Megatron, though. Albeit BW Megs

Had Pete not just posted a reason, I'd just say he somehow got in the same way BW Megatron was there

Eh, I lost interest in the very first panel. I'm not a big fan of the Transformers multiverse schtick, but it's as capable of having a good story as any other setting. However, heavy-handed sci-fi narration about the Transformers multiverse already tells me that this is going in a direction I won't care for. I don't go to Transformers for hard sci-fi -- there's too much of that available better elsewhere, and it's not what I like about the TF franchise in the first place.

I sorta knew it was coming based on this year's theme, but I suppose I was hoping we'd get something with less Star-Trek technobabble. To me, that stuff is just trying too hard to be something Transformers really isn't.

But, obviously plenty of people like it. Nothin' wrong with that. just not my thing at all.
