The pieces are coming together, as the biggest mega team up this side of 1989 is coming together at IDW. They’ve been hinting at a “Revolution” over the last few months, but now the curtain has been lifted on just what is about to go down. And boy is it bit.
Revolution will be a five-issue biweekly run, gathering together Hasbro’s big guns: GI Joe, Transformers, Micronauts, ROM, Action Man and MASK (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) are uniting, and it’s all coming this September.
Speaking about the project, IDW editor-in-chief Chris Ryall tells EW that it isn’t quite what you expect; “We didn’t want this to be what fans have seen from so many others, which is a reboot or a relaunch where you’re asked to forget about all these characters and stories you’ve been following for years.
“It’s just now everybody will be acknowledging each other in a much greater way than ever before.” Ryall certainly seems to know what fans want to see; that many franchises in one space, why waste time telling new origins?
This is an interesting twist, saying that just recently we were getting very excited for the impending Hasbro Extended Universe on the big screen; could this be a beautiful taster of what’s to come there?
