Revolution at IDW – Worlds Colliding

350th Perfect Workout
Photo-A-Day #4180

Before I get to the comic books I have to talk about Koko Fit Club. I just completed my 350th perfect workout at Koko Fit Club. I have been working out there for about 3 years now and have been going 12 times a month in that time. I’ve had the goal of earning as many perfect workouts as I can to move on to the top 5th of all people at my club. I’m in sixth place and working hard to move on up.

I picked up some comics the other day and read through one of them: Revolution. This is where all of the Hasbro properties; M.A.S.K., Micronauts, ROM, Action Man, G.I. JOE and Transformers are going to come together in a single universe. This will set things up for the Hasbro Cinematic Universe, too. Taking a cue from Marvel, Hasbro is finally bringing all their toys together in one universe (except for things like My Little Pony and JEM, those are not part of this. I also heard that Visionaries would be a part of this as well. Who knows. I am excited to see where it leads.

When I heard that Hasbro was going to be creating a cinematic universe for their toy properties, I was excited. I grew up watching M.A.S.K., G.I. Joe, Transformers and Visionaries. While it doesn’t look like Transformers will be part of this universe, oh man it really should, M.A.S.K., G.I. Joe and Visionaries along with Micronauts, and ROM will be. This gives a ton of possibilities for cross-property movies. So, will there be some establishing movies like a revamped G.I. Joe where at the end we get a post credits scene where Duke recruits his childhood friend Matt Trakker into a new division called the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand? Or maybe at the end of the M.A.S.K. movie Brad Turner crash lands in Condor through a portal to the world of visionaries and because of his hocus pocus mask he befriends the good visionaries.

I’m not a writer for these movies but I do have some fun ideas on how they could work together. It is going to be up to the newly announced sable of writers to weave these properties together into a coherent whole. I am looking forward to seeing it done. Read more about it below.
