It’s been FOREVER since I’ve played Toy Soldiers, the video game from Signal Studios in which small toy soldiers battle for control of a World War I diorama.
Now, imagine my surprise when I stumbled across a video for Toy Soldiers War Chest: The Game of Toys Legendary Heroes edition that showcased all manner of toy lines duking it out. Imagine my further surprise when He-Man and Battle Cat from Masters of the Universe made an appearance.
However, nothing could prepare me for the tiny cameo at the end of the video, right around the 2:05 mark.
HOLY CRAP! DUKE! G.I. Joe! YO JOE!!!
Here’s the official blurb from Signal Studios, regarding this latest mash-up version of Toy Soldiers War Chest which, sadly, will require me to finally buy an Xbox ONE to play it.
Eight armies. One toy box to defend. The Toy Soldiers: War Chest Hall of Fame Edition is a fast-paced genre-bending mix of strategy defense and action gameplay that brings to life the iconic toys and action figures from your childhood. Lead He-ManTM, G.I. Joe, the disciplined Kaiser, the loveable Starbright and more heroes into legendary battle! Two more licensed armies will be revealed at a later date. Available at retail and digitally on PS4 and Xbox One, and digitally on PC Sumer 2015.

Oh yeah… consider me SOLD!!! Seriously– I loved the original game so I’m ALL over this like a Dreadnok on a frosty case of grape soda! Plus– there are TWO MORE licensed armies coming. Let the speculation begin! (Transformers anyone?) We’ll no doubt find out more at E3 2015!
