    Just a question about the Botcon Elite Guard story. What continuity is it supposed to be set in? The only franchise that has an Elite Guard is Animated. Why didn't they do it with the First Elite Guard in Animated, with like Kup Magnus training a young Ultra or something?

    I think it's supposed to be a G1, but not necesarily a G1 we've seen before.

    As to why it's not animated is because of the molds and figures that the Fun Pub folks had acces to. Apparently, no movie, Universe 2.0, or animated molds were allowed. Maybe next year we can get an awesome set of Animated figures!

    Though I prefer Universe figures, these Energon & Cybertron Repaints works for me too. :D

    I think the way they've explained it on the Club forum is that it's a parallel G-1, but definitely in the past since Kup is a rookie. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the feel I've got.
