    OH MY GOD THERE'S ANOTHER RAPIDO TOY.

    I will resist. Helps that the mold is awful, no matter the deco. Still, I rather like the fictional tidbit. :) 

    Also, holy crap, I totally always fan-wanked that Rapido and Onslaught had a feud/mutual respect thing going on.

    Where exactly does PCC fall in terms of continuity? Is this version of Rapido the one that eventually becomes Platoon Commander in G2 or is this another G1 inspired alternate continuity?

    US Power Core Combiners is one of those anomalous entities which sort of fits in with anything since it was out on its own, though some of the backstory suggested it fit in post RotF.

    United EX, this series, is more firm in its positioning. It takes place after the Return of Convoy (which came after Zone, so it's right at the end of Japanese G1). Events of one of the previous story chapters place this as taking place at the same time as Operation Combination.

    To answer your question, PriNcesfDarXnes, yes this is the same Rapido who goes on to appear in G2 - Japanese G2 at any rate, which had its own story told through pack in comics. That story was said to take place "many years after Return of Convoy", so this United EX presumably drops in before it occurs.


    Isn't continuity fun? Hats off to Hydra for managing to write around the established continuity so well with these story chapters.

    Huge thanks, Sol Fury, for the explanation. I'll have to check out those G2 comics sometime. Anywhere I can find translated versions?
