I've often wondered if I was the ONLY person who knew of this. I had the original comic book, never saw the action figure. Predecessor to Robo-cop?

I remember this toy and the comic book. It wasn't around for very long.

The comic book lasted much longer than the toy. I think it had nearly a seven year run before it was finally cancelled.

Always wanted one of these when I was a kid - the comic book was a bit of an eye opener (next to Star Wars comics, ROM was surprisingly grotesque in its depiction of the effects of the futuristic weaponry). Have heard slight rumours of a return, but I'm not holding my breath, just yet.

I must have been the odd duck, because I had one of these but never eve knew of the comic book. I just thought it was cool, the way it would light up when you pressed the thing on the back.

I had seen it in Omni Magazine, it was in an article about programmable toys, in 1978, also vaguely recall a commercial .
