So much cool new ROM stuff from the fans lately!


I've shared a lot of this recently discovered stuff with those of you I know from Farce book and Deviant Art but for those of you who I don't know through those social networks I'm gonna make a special posting today. First up there's this re-edited version of the ROMfall video it's got some cool extra added footage as you can see from this screen shot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbrPZPEqPuA

And speaking of Deviant Art, not just one or two, but three new pieces of fan art just turned up by a certain artist that I'm convinced at this point has an addiction to illustrating ROM related fan art. The new stuff includes other spaceknights, The Torpedo, Jack of Hearts and Nova! http://dannphillips.deviantart.com/gallery/

On a not so high note as far as new ROM fan art goes here's the latest page on the Rom #1 remix project. There's an obvious aspect about it right away that makes me feel less then thrilled about it can you guess what it is? https://twitter.com/RomSpaceknight

Wednesday update: I'm just adding this catalog photo image here today because it's just so rad and brings back some great memories. I used to have that Micrnoauts play set and oh my God do I wish I had had that Space 1999 Eagle 1 shuttle both the play set and die cast version. I also had one of those giant Shogun Warrior dolls but not that awesome Raydeen as seen here. So much cool stuff in this catalogue except for maybe item B or D, but that's just me.

  1. That vid is rad i dig it.
    Dann the man Phillips strikes again with 3 nice works. He is restless in his ROM art .there will be more i wager it sells well . I like them all but the one with the spaceknights is extra sweet.

    1. If ROM were to come back today he would deff be on my top of the list as an artisit for the book. His own cosmic book is pretty rad.

  2. I gotta agree with Joseph, that was my favorite. Unless we can count Howard the Duck. I really like his Howard. The man has a definite talent with the pencil lead.
    And I can't get enough of that video, I've watched it about 10 times now.

    1. That howard was pretty sweet. He was selling it cheap at the same time i bought that rom of his. No one bid on the howard he may still have it.

  3. I must also agree with my fellow bloggers! Dann is an amazing artist. His art, and his ROM, are more than just great to look at, they are actually really expressive! I think thats hard, and worthy of mentioning. You are a pro Dann!
    That video is fantastic too! Nice camera direction, good representation of the big guy, cool effects,just awesome stuff. Thanks Shlomo man!

  4. i wanted to raise a good point about something that Rom does in the video just before he summons his analyzer. he lowers the surface temperature of his armor in order to put out the flames on his left arm. we've seen him do something like this before in ROM 37 in which he battle Watch Wraiths. in issue 37 he did the same thing to his armor when he was sprayed with a burning gel like substance called plasma fire by two watch wraiths.

    also folks, check out the twitter link i added to the posting.

    1. yeah it looks like the guy just got lazy when it came to drawing the other spaceknights. it's possible he may be intending on giving them different color schemes later on but even so this peace over all is pretty mediocre.

  7. Love the vids and Dann's art! Some of the tweets are pretty cool like the costume but I agree with Joseph about the gaggle of gangly galadorians.ROM comes complete with separate index finger too O_o. Respect the metallic mittens :)

  8. Hey Ben did you see that leaked listing of Hasbro toys that came out last month? It appeared on a menu at their customer service site and has been since taken down. But on it was a listing for a ROM toy and some people are speculating that it was shown at Toy Fair this year.

    Scroll to the bottom of this thread to see the listing and the toy itself:

    1. Strange but the photo looks more like soundwave. The name ROM in a transformers release line is odd even as the lower teir of their line as botshots. Be a shame if they bought the toy rights just to release this. Soundwave renamed as ROM as a botshot. I love me some soundwave but come on.

    2. The scary part is those feet. He very well could be ROM depecticon

    3. i appreciate the heads up EKM. but if i was a betting man i'd put my money on that this has much to do about nothing. i'm really burnt out on all the Rom return hype that never amounts to anything as we've been subjected to for the last two years or so. first it was with the Annihilators mini-series, then some crap about Hasbro filing for the ROM trademark or whatever and then of course that Age of Ultron preview. all of it boiled down to jack shit and i'm pretty sure this is more of the same.

    4. I agree i think we all want a grand return but reality is hype and that may be all we may ever get. This either was a screw up or just another insult if it is realy a transformer released as ROM.

  9. I absolutely love that video!I want rom to return so badly hopefully Hasbro is purchased by Disney but I won't hold my breath.

    1. yeah i wouldn't even recommend you try holding your breath for the next posting RT. but at least that's something you can count on happening. probably in a few hours or so from now which is still longer then you can hold your breath i'm guessing.
