SDCC 2017 Exclusive Hasbro IDW Revolution Box Set
Hasbro really brought the thunder to this years SDCC.  Incredible Star Wars exclusives, amazing Marvel exclusives that we reviewed for you already (links above), and they threw us a curve ball.  An unexpected exclusive if you will.  Unexpected, but so amazing, that once announced, I knew it would need to be a part of my collection.  The IDW Revolution box set.  Box Set? Boxed Set?  Have I been saying it all wrong this time, I don’t care, it doesn’t matter.  I gather you hear today to show you just how epic the SDCC Hasbro IDW Revolution Box Set is.  It features characters plucked from my child hood, all present in current day IDW comics, specifically their forth-coming Revolution, cross title arc that includes Action Man, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Micronauts, Rom, M.A.S.K. and Visionaries.  I’ll admit to you now, that while I grew up loving almost all of the words I just said, I’m not current or caught up on the IDW comic universe.  I had to have this set though, because I will always love M.A.S.K. I will always love G.I. Joe, The Visionaries, I had totally forgotten about till this set, but I’m really happy to be reminded.  I never got into Micronauts or Action Man, but hey, the more toys the better, right?  

A quick note on the overall packging, the artwork inside and out, beatufiul, perfect, massive.  Though I’m a loose collector, I’m holding on to the box.  I have a poster frame the front fold out panel will fit, and I think it would look amazing on my walls.  Well done!

Micronauts | Action Man | Leoric | Roadblock | Matt Trakker | Dire Wraith | Rom | Jetfire The Rest | Availability | Family Photos


The Good

  • 9 tiny pretty well detailed figures here featuring the Micronauts Acroyear, Biotron, Oberon, Quin-Tillus, Phenolo-Phi, Xant, Gammatron, Baron Karza and Betatron.  
  • They are tiny!
  • Clean paint applications for figures this small.
  • Strudy little things.
  • Balanced, and stands are attached, which is appreciated.

The Bad

  • I wish I knew a little more about Micronauts to speak to it.  If you are into them, I’m sure you’ll love these.


Action Man

The Good

  • Action Man is well articulated, lots of movement here, ab-crunch, ankle rockers, wrists that spin, good head movement.
  • Clean paint application.
  • Very clean lines and nice design.
  • Action Man includes two sub-machine guns and a rifle, all fit well in his hand. 
  • I googled Action Man, it looks like him!
  • Included stand with nicely printed name on it, Action Man fits well and can balance easily.

The Bad

  • I don’t have anything negative to say, nor do I know the character enough to have a wish list.



The Good

  • If the Visionaries producers weren’t hoping for a live action movie featuring Burt Reynolds, I don’t know what the heck they would have been thinking.  Subsequently, if any further Burt Reynolds characters are made into figures, and this head sculpt / design aren’t used, the universe fails.
  • Helmet fits perfectly.
  • I love the lenticular look of Leoric’s banner and chest plate, seeing them brought me right back to 1987, I had em’ all and was always mesmerized moving them back and forth and watching their chest plates and banners change.
  • The sculpting here is really cool, eye catching.  The shoulder pieces, the sculpting on the legs.  It brings a smile to my face, I say that, because I’m smiling now looking at it to describe it to you.
  • Whip fits perfectly in Leoric’s hand.

The Bad

  • I don’t think it’s character appropriate, but I’d love a holster / sheathe for his big bad sword.


The Good

  • It has been a very long time since I’ve picked up a G.I. Joe in any capacity.  They have come quite a way since my first mighty childhood collection (it was over 350 Joes strong at it’s peak, not bad for a 9 year old with no direct source of personal income…).
  • Roadblock has a really personable face.  I don’t know if Hasbro meant to do that, but I look at Roadblock and think…I’d hang out with this guy.
  • Included weapons are interactive!  He comes with a holstered pistol he can use, his machine gun, a loose knife, and another holstered life on his left calf.  Each weapon fits well in his hands.
  • But my favorite part of all the weapons, the machine gun has a removable clip!  
  • Roadblock features solid all joints articulation, tons of great poses for G.I. Joe’s heavy weapons expert, but poses are limited by the flak jacket….but!
  • Flak jacket is removable!
  • Mutton chops on a 3.75″ figure never looked so good.  
  • Fun note, without this set, we may have never seen this Roadblock figure!

The Bad

  • Roadblock could be an unfortunate gateway for me, one that I’ve avoided walking through for some time. I don’t have money or space to spin up a collection of Joes again!


Matt Trakker

The Good

  • I’ll admit to you, the figures reviewed above this point were unexpected surprises that I fell in love with, and I do love them.  But from this point on, dictated why I needed to get this set.  I’ll start here, with Matt Trakker.  
  • While G.I. Joe was my first passion collection, and by far my largest until adulthood, it could have been M.A.S.K. too. I loved the show beyond words.  I loved they toys, the quick change features of all the vehicles.  For me, favorites were always between Matt Trakker and his awesome Trans-am like car, and Brad Turner with his helicopter motorcycle.  Getting either of them in 3.75 inch scale is a joy I never thought I’d have…a joy and a bit of a tease.
  • Matt Trakker as a figure has a tone of neat tricks, starting with articulation, featuring all modern Hasbro 3.75inch articulation.
  • Well fitting helmet accurate to current IDW deco.
  • Costume is IDW accurate.
  • The removable hose and harness set is really cool, and removing it allows for even a little more articulation.
  • Matt includes a cool sub-machine gun that fits well in his hand.
  • Another figure in this set with remarkably clean paint, and excellent detail expressed through paint.

The Bad

  • Something I had never thought of before, but now, I’ll be kind of mad if Hasbro doesn’t make a full line of M.A.S.K. toys.  Who knows, maybe we will see an announcement at HASCON or NYCC 2017…Toy Fair 2018?  Just… I really need Matt’s flying car.  I’ll stop there if you let me.

Dire Wraith

The Good

  • The Dire Wraiths featured in one of my favorite Marvel short series Annihilators Earthfall…needed a Dire Wraith since then.  Granted, this is the IDW take on a Dire Wraith, I’m really happy to have anything called a Dire Wraith in my collection.  
  • He looks sinister, that grin is pure evil. 
  • Character design here is faithfully honored in plastic.
  • Excellent, creepy, long arms that you can take off at the elbow for storage…or to stir your coffee.  
  • Solid articulation, has all expected points in 3.75 including ab-crunch.
  • Nice pouch sash, adds depth to the character.
  • Love the button detail!

The Bad

  • He’s got a holster on his leg, that is empty, and he didn’t have a gun included in his section of the box…now, he’s got no need for a gun, but, you have a holster, put a gun in it.  That’s just how I roll.



The Good

  • I was pretty excited when Hasbro turned Rom the Spaceknight into a Mighty Mugg for a convention exclusive a few years back.  Today, to get a proper 3.75″ articulated Rom…I’m over the moon.
  • Rom feels really sturdy as a 3.75″ figure, nice tight joints and very smooth movement.
  • Solid articulation considering his top half is mostly a box.
  • His weapon is highly detailed and true to comic appearances, fits very well in his hand.
  • Like the other 3.75″ figures in the set he comes with a stand that has his name on it.
  • I want a Silver Surfer on this mold, same paint, just change out the top half, it’d be perfect.
  • The paint feels thick and looks incredibly rich.

The Bad

  • If there is a way to take off his top box, I couldn’t figure it out.



The Good

  • I’ve really been excited to get to this part of the review since I started writing it, and that was actually a long time ago…so, this is pretty exciting for me.  
  • I’ve been out of the Transformers game for a very very long time, with my only current Transformer being a Generations Titans Return Hot Rod with Firedrive.  He’s awesome, but the last time I collected Transformers before him, Metroplex was brand new…the first one.  I say this, because my initial assessment of this box set, was that Jetfire would end up being just an in-scale with 3.75″ action figure.  So when I opened the box and transforming instructions fell out…I flipped because I was so excited.  I totally didn’t expect that he would transform, but he does.  In fact, I think …and I’m probably so off on this because I’m just not up on this stuff, this is a Generations Leader Class Jetfire…so not only does he Transform, but he’s a Transformer that you can get as a …Transformer, if that makes sense.
  • He’s gorgeous, just a really good looking figure, brings that amazing Jetfire sensibility into the 2010s with some slight updates to look a little more modern than the hulking and heavy Jetfire I had when I was a kid.
  • One of the coolest things for me here is the removable face mask, it comes off front-ways to reveal is very friendly looking face.
  • Jetfire includes 3 removable weapons, one spring loaded, they all have a few different placement options and look great.
  • Transforming is easy and satisfying, but don’t look at the instructions…unless you are smarter than me, then you will probably be okay to look at the instructions.
  • Jetfire takes me back…he’s shorter and doesn’t have as pointy or rotating ear antennae, but he’s every bit as awesome as  9 year old me remembers.  I’m so excited to have him on my desk at home.

The Bad

  • I am in love with this figure.  I really really enjoyed transforming him to and from a Jet.  That said, I got 3 steps into the instructions and had absolutely no idea what the heck I was doing by following them.  I mentioned it before, it’s been a while for me for Transformers, and maybe this is status quo and Transformers fans can look at this and be done in three clicks….but I couldn’t follow them at all.  I was able to figure out the transformation process very quickly without them though, so that’s still pretty awesome.


The rest

The IDW Revolution box set has exceeded my expectations of what it was, what was inside, and how much I’d like it in every way.  It’s a $99.99 piece, so it’s pricey, but there is so much value socked into this box.  One Leader Class Transformer, 6 3.75″ figures, 9 Micronauts, a ton of accessories, figure stands, and back to the box….  The box is a piece of art all by itself, and I’m reminding you of that now, because if you scroll just a little bit more, you can see it in all of it’s glory.  I did my best to take a large amount of shots and showcase some of the finer points of detail…it’s very big.  If you grew up in the 80’s, pretty much every figure in this box speaks to you in one way or the other (I mean..that is if you found your way to in the first place at least.  There is something for so many that were playing with toys as kids in that time period.  If you didn’t grow up in the 80’s and you are just super hyped for the upcoming IDW Revolution cross over event, well, this box set has you covered too.  I mentioned with the Asgard set, it did a good job of being an exclusive…if that did a good job, this does a great job.  A bunch of great figures, a ton of value, and characters that folks who are really passionate will seek out.  If you put Leoric on the shelves in 2017 out of nowhere, there would be a lot of kids, parents, and people scratching their heads.  Put him in an SDCC box and collectors loose their MINDS!
