Rom The Space Knight’s Triumphant Return at SDCC

By Joe NUB

Rom The Space Knight makes his return at San Diego Comic Con this year courtesy of Hasbro and their adorable, Mighty Muggs line of vinyl toys.  Originally produced by Parker Brothers board game company in 1979, Rom was an attempt to foray into the electronic toy market.  Marvel was also tapped to develop a comic series to promote the toy which ran for seventy-five issues, in which Rom had plenty of interaction with other heroes including the X-Men, and Power Man and Iron Fist.

Over the years he has developed a cult following so to see this upcoming Mighty Mugg toy is awesome!  I know DW will be excited! Since Parker Brothers is now a subsidiary of Hasbro, is there a chance we might eventually get a 6 inch super articulated action figure to fit in with the rest of our Marvel Legends figures?  Yes please!
