    There's been several such as Generation 2 and Regeneration One.

    What do you accept as the true continuation?

    Generation 2 without a doubt, I hated Regeneration One. I haven't gotten into Classics, but I'm sure its just more Funpub convoluted gobbledygook.

    I'm not a big fan of neither G2 nor RG1, but one of them was published not so long after the original G1 run ended and had a mini bridging it and GIJOE, the other one is a modern reboot.

    Beast Wars. ;) 

    I like elements of G2 and RG1 but overall I'm kind of content with the ending of the original series; Prime returns, Cybertron is restored, and the Decepticons retreat in defeat but vowing the return someday.

    I agree that 80 is a solid ending.
    To me, G2 is a decent 90's continuation/ending in the case that we had a little more time to end it properly. They knew going in that it might only be 12 issues, so they planned accordingly.
    RG1 suffers from too much time. Or, rather, that it should of just been an open ended continuation. The same as Hamas G.I.Joe ARAH. I think Simon could of done a lot of amazing stories if it wasn't "stretch it for 20 then condense the ending because we thought we had more space than we actually had."
    If that makes sense.

    "Another Time and Place", as the last G1 story per-se, as written, but I'm then assuming that some time after that 'Galvatron II' (Rhythms Galvatron) emerged from his icy tomb, gathered a Decepticon army, slaughtered most of the Autobots and killed Optimus for a while, and conquered Cybertron by 2009, at which point Rodimus and co returned to their own time from the Time Wars and fought him as chronicled in "Aspects of Evil" 2 and 5, before eventually getting to the events of "Peace" in 2510, before finally, further millennia later, after Optimus has popped back from the dead a few more times, getting to the blue shaded "distant future" sections of "Another Time and Place".

    RG1 is a nice bit of nostalgia, and G2 a charming insight into overblown grimdarkness, but I wouldn't consider either really the "true" ending.

    In all honesty my answer is marvel G2

    Granted it wasn’t a direct continuation since it was a few years in between but it had the virtue of being the first continuation as well as one still carried under the original licensing and from the original publisher

    Just to say that that’s not really a judgment on the work itself just my way of seeing things

    Considering Furman folded so much of G2 into RG1, I have to wonder why he didn't just make the issue 100 Big Bad be the Leige Maximo. Instead we got a villain we already defeated before.
    Talk about a missed opportunity.

    I've never read g2 though I've heard some good and bad things about it. the art looks weird though.

    regeneration one was cool and i generally liked it.

    I guess now we have to start thinking about if the prequel, Transformers: '84 is a true prequel or not. And if it is not can you still enjoy the stories because the first issue was a pretty fun story. It needed to be longer but a fun story.
