TheÂ Stranger ThingsÂ star teamed up with MGA EntertainmentÂ for the launch ofÂ Awesome Little Green Menâ„¢. The new blind box collectible toys, combining humor and battle play with a pop vinyl aesthetic, will be available at retail stores nationwide beginningÂ August 1.
â€œAwesome Little Green Men is a fresh new take on little green army men, but raises the bar by infusing battle and game play with amazing new characters to collect,â€ said Isaac Larian, CEO of MGA Entertainment. “With our proven track record of creating successful collectible toys, we are excited to deliver an amazing new brand for kids to enjoy.”
Although small in stature, Awesome LittleÂ Green Menâ€™s largerÂ than life expressions letâ€™s you know just how serious they are about the mission. With 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 a collectible â€“ itâ€™s a game too. General Pain and General Panic lead the troops, and the goal is to build the best squad in order to win the game. Each pint-sized character is a member of a special unit, and all have seriously funny names such as â€œPrivate Porkchop,â€ â€œCaptain Obvious,â€ â€œSergeant Swag.â€
The event hosted military families to an afternoon of paintball, food, and lots of Awesome Little Green Men. The friendly competition of paintball was fierce, fun, and definitely awesome!
