GOOD ART HLYWD has put a pricier spin on the classic Little Green Army Men with their Silver Army Men line. All the classic molds are available, but now cast in sterling silver. Available individually, or as a complete set.
Gentle Giant had an impressive list of exclusives at this year’s SDCC, including this 12″ G.I. Joe ‘Grunt’ figure.
Essentially an upscaled model of the original ‘Grunt’ 3.75″ figure, this particular figure came in a sturdy wooden lock box.
Inside, the figure is stored in a cushioned cutout, with his backpack, helmet, and service rifle on the opposite side. An awesome addition to any G.I. Joe fan’s collection.

Additionally, 20 of the ‘Cosmic’ crates featured a special “chase item”, a Space Invader Ballpoint Pen. Unfortunately, I didn’t receive one of the lucky crates, but even without the pen it’s a pretty solid selection of items.
Mega Bloks line is also taking full advantage of some licensing their competitors wouldn’t ever consider adding to their fold.
I don’t have a lot of experience with the BOOMco line, but licensing the Halo property to make a line of dart launchers is a strong move on Mattel’s part.
The line consists of several blasters modeled after iconic Halo weapons from both the Human and Covenant forces, designed to fire foam-tipped darts. A consistent claim throughout the packaging of the blasters is their capability to fire up to 70 feet.
This particular set, the USNC Covenant Battle Pack, is actually available for sale at the convention. I did manage to pick up a set, but I’ll have to wait until I get back to the headquarters before I do a hands-on review.

All in all, it has some pretty cool stuff.
This is a 7″ Rambo Action Figure released by NECA as part of the Reel Toys line. Confusingly, despite being part of the ‘Reel Toys’ line, it’s actually a special version which pays homage to the 8-bit NES Rambo video game, and comes in special packaging that mimics the original game box. To this end, Rambo comes complete with orange-colored bandana, pants, and boots, and a stylized paint job. His accessories include a bow and arrows, combat knife with sheath, hand grenade, and RPG.
Unfortunately, this one’s going to remain SIB for the foreseeable future, but I did manage to scrounge up a product image so you know what the figure looks like.
