Transformers, MASK, GI Joe and more unite in Hasbro’s Revolution at IDW

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.

IDW Hasbro Revolution

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?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
