So is Arcee's creation supposed to pre-date the launch of the Ark, or post-date it? -- SFH 22:29, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
- I THINK she she's Pre-Ark. I believe Omega Supreme said that Jhiaxus went on the Ark. Pacce 23:38, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
- Depends on how long it took her to go ballistic after becoming a fem-bot. I'm positive her capture by Ultra Magnus (and therefore Jhiaxus's cameo) has to have been looooong after the Ark was launched. The mention of the Tyrest Accord, the presence of Autobot symbols as standard insignias, Ultra Magnus no longer being just a White Prime as he was in Megatron: Origin...all of it points to her capture being post-Sentinel Prime, long after Nova Prime vanished along with the Ark. --Xaaron 03:59, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
She says she was the first test subject, not the only one. So what's with all the all this talk of errors in Megatron Origins? Pacce 23:17, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
- Agreed. Perhaps they ironed out the kinks after Arcee and made more they were OK. --MistaTee 00:18, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm just curious, is there any reason to believe the captured spark labeled "Ransak" is the G2 plane, which is how we have it linked now, rather than the G1 Deluxe Insecticon? All thinks being equal the latter seems the more likely to be inprisioned to me. --ZacWilliam 13:33, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
- I'm guessing it's because Ransack the Insecticon appeared in Spotlight: Sixshot. Although he could have been captured and imprisoned for whatever reason since then. --KilMichaelMcC 13:38, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
- Yeah... I have to agree with MistaT's logic. Ransack was last seen at a non-front-line position on a space station processing data. Ransack G2 makes more sense. We should footnote it though.-Derik 13:51, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
It's not a continuity error that Kick-Off was later seen on Garrus 9 after previously being seen on the Hub. Otherwise it would be an error that Blast Off was on the Thanatos and then later with the Combaticons, that Gutcruncher was at the Styx penal colony and later with Banzaitron, that Perceptor and Siren were on the Hub and also seen on Ark-17, etc. People move from place to place. Unless there's some evidence that Spotlight: Blaster and Spotlight: Arcee were taking place simultaneously (there isn't), there's no error here. --Xaaron 00:02, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
- First off, Spotlight Hot Rod took place before Spotlight Arcee, and it was all a set-up, so Gutcruncher was clearly working for Banzai-Tron. No sense in him not working for him on this op too. As for Blast-Off, probably got chosen for this very important mission as part of the Combaticons. The thing with Kick-Off is, he's been seen in Spotlight: Blaster, which takes place about the same time as Devastation, given that the Autobots on Earth (Nightbeat in particular) are shown getting the news. This only takes place shortly before the attack on Garrus-9, which happens a few issues later Devastation-wise. As such, it does seem that Kick-Off is hanging in two places at once. --188.8.131.52 00:18, 6 March 2008 (UTC) (Detour at work)
- According to the time table of Ironhide's demolition in Dev #1, the entire arc took place in less than three hours, and Nightbeat was pretty busy for all of that time -- no time to scan for news updates about "The Voice". On the other hand, there are a full three weeks of unaccounted for time between the end of Escalation and the start of Devastation, where Spotlight: Blaster could have taken place. Three weeks is plenty of time for Kick-Off to have moved on to another assignment. Heck, maybe BLASTER took his detail. Whatever, there's a reasonable window of opportunity for Kick-Off's status to have changed, and several examples of 'bots and 'cons changing assignments already.
- My point is, we shouldn't point and scream "AH! Continuity error!" unless we have to. And we don't have to here. --Xaaron 00:34, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
- Furthermore, Gunrunner and Crosshairs are also seen on the bridge in Stormbringer and Spotlight: Blaster (Crosshairs is even sitting at a station just like Kick-Off in the spotlight), yet we know they frequently go off on excursions as part of the Ark-27 crew. So the whole idea that the bridge crew is inviolably set in stone is fallacious.
- Look, I think this is enough to say Kick-Off's two appearances are not a continuity error. I'm removing the Error. --Xaaron 04:03, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
