I don't think so. But it is clearly G1 in that everyone looks like their G1 designs and acts like their G1 characters and are all G1. It's not G2 or Beast Wars or Armada or Prime, it is G1, as much a facet of G1 as Sunbow or Marvel or Dreamwave or Blackthorne 3d.
I think what was mentioned before about say, BW characters turning up in Animated being fine and non-controversial. Animated was clearly its own continuity with its own designs and characters. .
I don't mean this as some sort of value judgement or anything, just the observation that the IDW ongoing is a G1 ongoing. I wasn't aware this was ever in dispute.

I've voted Sausages because I'd prefer RID and MTMTE if they didn't have any recognisable "G1" characters in them at all, as I don't like reimaginings/reboots, so it makes no difference to me whether they include "post-G1" as well. All the original thought in the new comics is great, I just wish they weren't using the likenesses of characters who already have established fictional biographies in comics and don't need new ones.
New biography = new character. Give them a new name and new look while you're at it.
(I know, I know, brand recognition / franchising = sales...)
I'm sure this has been said before but I really HATE what they've done with Rattraps character! On the other hand it doesn't really matter. I mean yeah it's annoying to see a character you like being used "badly" by a writer but the way I see it is "different verse, different rules". BW Rattrap is and always will be BW Rattrap and the best Rattrap, but having a Rattrap in a different universe doesn't cancel out BW Rattrap. Back to my original pompous point before my pompous Rattrap rant, any character can appear anywhere the writers or company guys want them to "so long as it sells toy".

I know what you mean, putting in characters from other lines completely into G1 feels really... I dunno. Fan-ficcy? I mean yeah, it is all about Hasbro wanting existing toys in the comics, which I understand, but still...

It's not so much that he's in it (yeah him being a rat doesn't make sense but then half of everything in Transformers doesn't make sense) it's more that he's a scheming, conniving goon who will GLADLY TORTURE PEOPLE FOR STARSCREAM !!!
