Nostalgia alert! Nostalgia alert!

Classic 80s toy and cartoon action heroes G.I. Joe and He-Man — two personal favorite toy lines from my youth — are invading Toy Soldiers: War Chest as two of four army factions based on licensed action figure brands. The other two armies have not been revealed, but the poster image seen below shows their silhouettes so keen-eyed gamers can try to figure out what they might be. Any early guesses?

These four licensed armies will be included in a special Hall of Fame edition of Signal Studios’ latest toy box tower defense action game, which will be sold at retailers and via digital download for $29.99. The game’s standard edition, which will sell exclusively as a digital download for $14.99, will include only the four base armies — Phantom, Dark Lord, Kaiser, and Starbright — while the four Hall of Fame armies will be sold as DLC for $4.99 each, or in a bundle for $14.99.

So in other words, buy the Hall of Fame edition or get the fuck out don’t buy the game at all.

Toy Soldiers: War Chest will be out this summer on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If you haven’t played a Toy Soldiers game before, be sure to check out our review for the previous title Toy Soldiers: Cold War to get an idea of what to expect. Also watch the new trailer below. If you’re 30 years old and up, it’s sure to raise nostalgic goose bumps all over your body.
