H was really excited about trying out the Awesome Little Green Men military collectibles. These are new blind box collectible toys, which combine humour and battle play with a pop vinyl aesthetic and they are available at Tesco, Smyths and Toys R Us now. We have receive the battle pack and two blind-boxes for our review.
It’s a fresh take on little green army men (you know the ones that generations of children have played with over the years) and it ramps up the fun by mixing battle play and game play. There are more than 100 unique characters to collect in Series 1, including four super rare figures in the green army and blue army, the new toy is more than just a collectible – it is a game too. General Pain and General Panic (I love the names) lead the troops, and the goal is to build the best squad in order to win the game. Each character is a member of a special unit, and all have funny names such as “Private Porkchop,” “Captain Obvious,” “Sergeant Swag” which really appeals to children.
You can find out how to play by watching the YouTube video below, but the written instructions are easy enough to follow.
H has enjoyed playing with this set. He would probably have got bored quickly if it was just a collectible, but the game play aspect adds another dimension and increases the fun you can have.
Each blind box comes with one soldier, one dog tag, a new recruits poster and game guide and the rrp is £3.99, so it’s within pocket-money range (H would have to save for a few weeks). Awesome Little Green Men come in Blind Boxes, Starter Packs and Deluxe Battle Packs, with Battle Packs containing everything you need to start your mission.
