It originated in the cranium of Cadet ChrysAlice, and was built into a tangible realty by TSU-UK Toy Soldiers from all across the countryside on May 29th and 30th when they invaded the London MCM Expo!

Our troops tapped into the cuddlier side of our global mission by offering FREE hugs (and brainwashing), which they proudly advertised with large placards and laser-eyed Steel posters! They also brought a new brainwashing technology to the convention floor – the BRAINWASH BOX. This unique device offered curious convention goers the opportunity to create a funny photo to share with friends and family while they were uniwttingly imprinted with the Word of Steel. It was reported that over 100 head were subjected to the device, and not one was detached from its neck!

Among those lured in by these Soldier’s charms and warm embraces were a Moogle, Master Chief(s), Waldo, and Captain Jack. Even the master of the dark side of the force himself, Darth Vader, was helpless to their brainwashing powers when faced with free hugs!

Participating Toy Soliders included Cadet ChrysAlice, Monte, Comrade Von Kraken, TS Spoon, Sir Jack of Blades, DarkLordofDevon, Evelfa, Cybernetic Chris, DeaBellona, Nurse Viola Vongore, and Field Marshal Fearless.
