The Press Release:

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I am pretty behind on the comic adventures of these characters in their new shared universe I am no less excited about it because I am a big fan of the “universe building” and continuity when it comes to popular character. This press release hit my mailbox earlier today while I was out seeing “Spider-Man: Homecoming” which continues the expansion of the Marvel Cinemaic Universe. It’s been reported that big screen adaptations of these conflicts with the Transformers, GI Joe, ROM Spaceknight and the rest are being worked on and I say “sign me up” for those when it happens. I love the look of this set and the figures that it includes. I still have my original ROM figure somewhere in a box. He didn’t do much more than light up with different weapons in his hands but I loved having the figure. I was a big fan of his comic book growing up as well and yeah, I have those in a storage container in one of my many long boxes but I digress. This is a super cool collectible set to add to your collection and I am sure that more will follow it. I’ve mentioned several other SDCC Exclusives already and if you’ve missed those posts just click HERE to catch up. I want to send those going to the event as much information as possible so they return broke but with piles of coolness. Are you hitting the convention? We don’t get there ourselves but are slavering at some of the exclusives being presented. Let me know what you think about this one down in the comments section below. See you next time.
