A Comic-Con Exclusive Shows Future of ‘IDW’ Comics

The recently announced San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is a set called Revolution. The set is meant to reflect the comic book event of the same name which brought many Hasbro properties together into one interconnected storytelling universe. The box will include Jetfire of the Transformers, Ian Noble from Action Man, Roadblock of G.I. Joe, Matt Trakker of M.A.S.K., Rom the Space Knight (from the series of the same name), miniature figure versions of the Micronauts, and a Dire Wraith, the alien race from Rom. What is interesting is the inclusion of another Hasbro property to the mix which currently doesn’t have a comic running from the publisher. This figure is Leoric of the Visionaries, a lost franchise Hasbro still owns the rights too. This helps to confirm rumors Visionaries will be coming to IDW as a comic series and will part of the Hasbro Universe.

Visionaries was a cartoon series with a line of figures and a short-lived comic which focused on characters who could use magical light to transform into animals. The toyline used holograms to take recreate this effect and the series has kept a small following over the years since it was abandoned by Hasbro. The figure will be the first one released for the series in years.
