    It's because the 2013 TFCC Magazine comic is a continuation of "Invasion".

    And as I thought, Ultra Mammoth is Classicverse Ultra Magnus.

    ...guess Ironhide's the Elephant as per his Beast Wars toy... and the Eagle is Prowl? (Though he was an owl in the BW toylines.)

    Prowl's the lion, Silverbolt's the eagle.

    Well those are the "Off-Camera" Magnaboss Combiner and the Grimlock (Beast wars dinobot repaint) which shared names with the G1 cast and then they've added their own Club Magnus toy on to that.

    Perhaps it's more Multiple parallel Universe than Mirror Universe in the sense of normal Shattered Glass - we have seen glimpses of other Universes before like that Optimus that looked a bit like Grand Patriot and so on.

    I can't see that this would sit easily with the prior Beast Wars comic though.

    I always saw that Silverbolt as some sort of pre-Fuzor Silverbolt (Doggybot) with him somehow being mashed up with that Wolf Deluxe to make the resulting doggybot. Though in terms of vocal pattern the two silverbolts are not unalike - I never saw them as the same individuals.

    I'm not sure how the process used there is really got a lot to do with Powermasters other than in terms of it being an Organic-inorganic interface to do with energy transfer. but considering the exact same function can also be done by mini-robots (Hasbro's overlord) it does not seem the right term to me to use.

    Then there's a whole other argument as to if Maximal are derived from Micromasters and also if they are even organic at all - Cheetor claimed he wasn't in season 1 - just that he looked it.

    P.s.

    Silverbolt's Pinion Feathers and beast legs probably should be white.
    Oh and he seems to be derived from United Ultra Magnus as much as the Classics one.

    Nah, Silverbolt = eagle and Prowl = lion.

    Fun stuff, though. I'm all for canonically casting Pretender tech as a proto-Beast-Wars evolutionary step. That always had a nice logic to it.

    Hmph. For a moment, I thought they were doing some sort of adaptation of Beast wars Dark Glass (the unproduced episode which would explain why TM2 Dinobot somehow gets the original Dinobots memories in Nemesis Part 2).

    I think I've figured out how this works.

    In the bonus sequel pages for the "SG Magnus destroys the Classics universe" story, the Transtechs mention that two Classics ships also got caught in the teleportation into the new universe, BUT went elsewhere in time.

    So these are Classics characters who got shot back in time in the SG Universe. Not sure which Earth it is but I'd wager it's the SG Prehistoric Earth. Which means no Ark, since the Autobots/Decepticons found Earth in the present day instead of 4 million years ago.

    Also recall that the Transtechs JUST went and recruited Timelines Depth Charge to go track these guys down in the same sequel pages. So odds are we'll see the subscription figures in this story.

    Could be either really cool or really meh. Hopefully Transquito pops up and guts Prowl or something.

    What Ratchet?

    It'll be interesting to see where they go with this...as long as we somehow end up with a new Rampage homage toy I'll be happy.

    Oh man this so lame
    I really wish the club would make better use of its time
    The club stories should elaborate on existing fiction and not waste resources with their own confusing continuity

    This is elaborating on existing fiction. The time period between G1 and Beast Wars is largely unknown.

    If they DID elaborate on existing fiction, it would ruffle just as many feathers.

    They've shrunk the number of sandboxes they're playing with down to the Wings universe, the SG Universe, and Transtech. And the best part of the way they're doing this story so far, off this page, is it's allowing toy repurposing that doesn't actually feel forced or involve renames (there's been precedent for the idea that Prowl/Ironhide/Silverbolt are the G1 guys, this just reconfirms it for this story. And Grimlock was already the G1 character on his bio)

    This is already a better use of those toys than the Beast Wars Sourcebook. Not saying much but still.

    It's not that same time period though.

    It's taking remnant characters from the Classics universe that the club just wisely cleaned up (they're redundant thanks to the WoH universe) and repurposing them as their Beast Wars toy counterparts in the SG Universe, which probably has no pre-existing Beast Wars (no Ark crash on prehistoric Earth means no Golden Disk secret message means no Beast Wars).

    Odds are the other ship is gonna be full of non-show Beast Wars toys who share names with G1 characters. I could see Buzzsaw/Laserbeak being among them.
