Hasbro has announced a San Diego Comic-Con exlcusive action figure set based upon IDW’s crossover series Revolution, featuring characters from Transformers, G.I. Joe, Micronauts, ROM, Action Man and M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand.
The well-received event series was co-written by Cullen Bunn and John Barber with dynamic art by Fico Ossio. It was supported by multiple tie-in issues from the aforementioned lines, all of which will be represented in the Revolution toy line. Artists David Messina, Tony Vargas, and Max Dunbar will see their newly redesigned versions of these classic toys straight out of the pages of the IDW comics and turned into action figures that fans can purchase exclusively at the Hasbro booth (#3329) at SDCC (while supplies last) and take home!
This will be the first ROM toy since its inception nearly four decades ago, over three decades since the last Micronauts toys were produced, and nearly two decades since the last line of M.A.S.K. Mobile Armored Strike Kommand toys.
“The spirit behind Revolution came from these writers and artists dreaming up their own crossovers by smashing all these toys together in their youth,” said IDW’s Editor-in-Chief, David Hedgecock. “Now, with this new set of action figures based on the imaginations of these creators, they can start their own revolutions and let the cycle begin all over again!”
