America’s Army now has its own line of action figures as part of the America’s Army Real Heroes program of the U.S. Army.

The figures are manufactured and distributed by Jazwares Inc. and available at Toys ‘R’ Us stores across the country. Developed in close conjunction with the U.S. Army to ensure authenticity, the figures come with a Real Heroes trading card highlighting their heroic accomplishments and Warrior Ethos, as well as authentic uniforms, weapons, insignias and awards.

The program is designed to give people a look at the accomplishments of American soldiers who have demonstrated bravery and valor in action. The initial launch will include four Real Hero soldiers: Sergeant Tommy Riemen of the 51st Long Range Surveillance Infantry, Sergeant First Class Gerald Wolford of the 82nd Airborne, Staff Sergeant Matthew Zedwick of the 2-162 Infantry and Major Jason Amerine of the 5th Special Forces Group.

First launched in 2002 as a free recruitment tool, America’s Army quickly became an immensely popular online multiplayer FPS, spawning numerous expansions and releases on other platforms. As of August, the game is reported to have over 8.6 million registered accounts. More information about the game and the America’s Army Real Heroes program is available at www.americasarmy.com.
