Greetings comrades!

Since Commander JET tapped my shoulder to join her as Administrator of Toy Soldiers Unite and leader of the Army, 6 almost 7 years ago, I have had the honor and privilege to be in a position that allowed me an unobstructed view of the Army of Toy Soldiers.

Together, you and I, we’ve seen the site and Army rebuild and focus its vision both outward and inward.
We’ve created music that tingles the senses, and videos to make us giggle and laugh.
We’ve written and read stories that made us happy, sad, angry and curious.
When the call came to aid others in our own unique way, we answered in the form of the Gaming Mammoth, and donated thousands over the years to worthy causes.
And I’ve witnessed friendships forged, passions kindled, and love blossom among the community.

And it’s at this time I’ve decided to take my leave of the Administration position, and leave TSU and the Army of Toy Soldiers in the safe and somewhat hairy hands of Engineer Airhead. It is thanks to him that no disasters have befallen the site, and features such as the ID Generator, The Toy Soldier Map and The Divisions interface were created. Engineer Airhead is also responsible for the beginnings of the annual gaming marathon.
He has a drive and focus that I envy, and I know he’ll do all of you proud as Leader of the Army of Toy Soldiers and Administrator.

As those Administrators before me, I’m going to continue with the ideals of the Toy Soldiers, and pursue my own personal Utopian Playland.
I’m not entirely certain yet in what form that’ll be. A local maker, creating items and goods for people with an appreciation for the weird and wonderful. The host of a cyberpunk show, exploring the reality we find ourselves in. Or perhaps guiding adventurers through science fiction and fantasy realities. It could be all three and more.

What I do know is that without the Army of Toy Soldiers, this sterling community of people from across the globe, I would not be the man I am today, and I owe you all a deep debt of gratitude. Thank you, comrades, for the conversations, the adventures, the relationships, the fun, and the shenanigans. You have inspired me in more ways than I can count, and I hope I can inspire you in return.

My name is Dutch Barracuda, and I will always be a Toy Soldier.

You can find me everywhere on the internet: FacebookTwitterInstagramDutchBarracuda.com – Discord: DutchBarracuda#5602
Most likely you’ll find me in other places too, but I’ll let you figure that out yourself.

To A Utopian Playland!

MCM Expo London 2017 After-action report!

Every year for the past 7 years now, Toy Soldiers Unite has been at the MCM Expo in London. It is one of the largest conventions in Europe for everything related to movies, comics, TV, games and more and is regularly attended by over 100,000 guests. This year has been no different.

Our table this year was a smorgasbord of the talents and creations of Toy Soldiers, including masks by Lt. Grimm, paintings by Lt. Sophie, a cornucopia of hama bead accessories by Annelise, and my own Dungeons & Dragons cases, as well as official TSU merchandise. On top of selling things, many came to the table to see TSU itself to get updates on our continued march towards World Domination, and share their own adventures with us. We met new recruits, and were visited by Toy Soldiers from long ago still fighting the good fight with creativity and imagination.

On top of all that, having a table allowed us a perfect vantage point to witness the utterly stunning and amazing cosplays created by thousands! From quick 1 hour costumes, to ones that had been in the works for months and months. The work that had gone into some of these designs bordered on the obsessive, and they were all magnificent. It has added fuel to my own fire to create a cosplay that will blow people away.

Now, witness the power of this fully loaded and operational comic con!

The Great Toy Soldier Survey with Giveaways!

The Great Toy Soldier Survey

Here at TSU-HQ, we’re trying to find out more about you, the wonderful people who make up The Army of Toy Soldiers. And although a few of our less stable scientists are working on brain scanning apps, none have been succesful as of yet, so we have to rely on good old fashioned surveys to find out what you guys like.

We’ve compiled this survey so that you can tell us what you like, what you don’t like, and what you’d like to see in the future. There are a few ideas that have been thrown around the HQ, a few projects, a few hamsters, more than a few bananas, and though we do lack the resources on occasion, we’d like to pursue those projects. Not the bananas, they’re not mobile so no pursuit required.

But we wouldn’t ask for something and not give something in return, so I’ve personally wandered down to The Armory, dodging a few flailing robots, and assembled 6 care packages of goodies. Patches, pins, t-shirts, etc. While I was down there, I was overjoyed to discover that our infiltrators at a certain toy manufacturing company had acquired and sent to us a very special item.

After the survey has run it’s course on the 30th of June, 6 entries will be randomly selected to receive these care packages, and one lucky entry will receive the highly coveted, over powered, NERF Mastodon, capable of rapidly firing off 24 mega darts. It is a beast of toy, and guaranteed to make your opponents quake in fear.

Now I’m sure you’re eager to get going on this survey, so have at it! CLICK HERE TO BE TAKEN TO THE SURVEY!

Toy Soldier Day

Today is March 4th, and upon this day 11 years ago Toy Soldiers Unite & The Army of Toy Soldiers was founded. Every year we celebrate it by taken the day to ourselves to do the things that make us happy, to fuel our pineal gland and stoke the fires of our creativity and imagination!

This year I am very glad to present to you this little video which is the culmination of submissions by Toy Soldiers who wanted to show the world their passions! With music by Dr. Malice & The Absinthetic Orchestra, we hope you’ll share this with friends, family, strangers, unwitting victims, and your dog Gusto.

I honestly wish I could’ve shown the entirety of the videos submitted to TSU-HQ, because they were all brilliant! And for every single comrade who submitted a video, I know there are a thousand more who are doing the same thing, pursuing their passion, engineering their reality, and marching forth towards a Utopian Playland!
