Killzone 3 Arrives With Army Men Escorts

I’ve received a lot of cool (and sometimes odd) swag/promo items over the years, but I’m not sure if anything can top these collectible army men toy figures Sony tucked in with my copy of Killzone 3. Yes, toy army men! Fuck yeah!

According to the packaging, there are only 500 of these Killzone army men sets in existence (mine is #192), and inside are 10 Helghast and a lone ISA soldier to fend them off in make believe tabletop army men battles — the label stating “get used to these odds.” They are not for children under the age of three. And the ‘new plastic smell’ when first opening the bag was pretty foul.

Now, please excuse me while I go fire up some Killzone 3. Back with my thoughts on the game next week!
