Even though it was retconned into being another sequel later in both countries. Even in Japan, Galaxy Force is officially considered a sequel to Micron Densetsu and Super Link. Guess it was a good thing that a few trace elements of the first two made it into the third series.Bumblevivisector wrote:If we're comparing Unicron Trilogy cartoons on the other hand, I'd be interested to hear any argument for Cybertron not blowing its predecessors out of the water, thanks to someone in Japan having the sense to cut ties with the end of Energon and do another 1 season = 1 continuity deal, like Car Robots.
Though, could it really be considered a retcon when it was originally intended by both Hasbro and Takara to be another sequel? All that happened with the cartoon was that either GONZO didn't get the memo or outright ignored the memo and wrote it as a new series despite what the higher ups wanted, thus leading to a lot of headaches that both companies (Hasbro especially) wound up having to try and fix to make it fit the original vision for the series.
