Parker Bros. Rom the Space Knight

Rom The Space KnightWith the return of Rom the Space Knight to the world of comics courtesy of IDW (god I would kill for that gig…,) I thought I’d update my photos of the silver skinned defender of humanity. I was an avid reader of the comics as a kid and really loved the toy. The combination of the LED eyes and the light up armaments, not to mention the sounds, made for one bad ass dude. One thing I particularly liked about Rom was that while he had all these “weapons” he came with, none of them were actually weapons in the traditional sense, especially his Neutralizer. Whenever Rom would blast a Dire Wraiths with it, sending them into another dimension, it looked like he was disintegrating humans. Made for a very misunderstood hero. Someday I hope to steal that idea for a book of my own.

  1. Just a small correction, fyi, but the original Rom Spaceknight toy was produced by Parker Brothers and not Mattel.
