It's still your conclusion. You merely share it with Hasbro.Dead Metal wrote:I'm not stating that everything points to "my" conclusion, I'm saying it points to the official conclusion.
I'm not ignoring Hasbro's word, I'm simply acknowledging that inconsistencies take precedent in saying that the fictions are in different continuities over Hasbro's word. The similarities of the different fictions is irrelevant.Dead Metal wrote:You're ignoring the official word and the inconsistencies WFC and FOC have with all G1 continuities, which are even larger than the the ones it has with Prime, especially considering that Prime even has an episode devoted to retelling the main story points of WFC as its history.
That doesn't matter to the issue here.Dead Metal wrote:Almost every incarnation of G1 has had its own history via stories set in those times or flashbacks, or even history footage from those times.
WFC jives with non of them.
Isn't Animated a G1 universe though? That was my understanding. Then again, I haven't watched it enough to come to a solid viewpoint yet.Dead Metal wrote:You could make a better case of Animated sharing the same history as G1 due to the "history video" easter egg in the first episode, but please don't restart that one.
I'm well aware what they said. But again, it's irrelevant.Dead Metal wrote:Here have it from Archer at a BotCon panel from last year.

Scroll down to Modern Continuity.
Yes, I am trying to be reasonable. You seem like you're assuming that I'm not because you don't agree with my open-minded view.Dead Metal wrote:orangeitis wrote:I'm not necessarily on the "WFC=G1" side. I'm just trying to be reasonable here.
Erm, no actually not. Yes there are inconsistencies but looking at the points from earlier, well.
I'm not trying to say that Exodus/Exiles, WFC/FoC, or Prime isn't set in the same universe. I'm saying that it's very unlikely from a continuity perspective, and that(from what Matt Tieger said about it leading into G1) WFC/FoC could also be set in a new G1 universe, where the timeline branches out.
No, it does not. I'm presenting logic and evidence for my case. You have just made a claim that doesn't make any sense. Reptiles aren't sapient, so they are incapable of actively wanting to destroy the human species. Your reasoning is becoming increasingly irrational.Dead Metal wrote:orangeitis wrote:Yeah... no.Dead Metal wrote:Arguing against that makes you on par with the kind of people who believe that Reptoids have been simultaneously guiding and working towards destroying our species for the past 10 thousand years or so.
I'm sorry, it does.
Just because you don't understand the other side's view don't mean that their view is as flawed as you perceive it to be. It just means that you're arguing without investigation, and are ignorant to the logic of the one(s) you're talking to. The very fact that you made such a comparison is evidence that you're being unreasonable, and if you're not gonna take your side of the issue on faith and refuse to take the time to understand, then you've already lost the argument.
