New from BorgCo for the Christmas season, the must-have toy that everyone's talking about.

The exterior of the toy is a cube, available in NATO olive drab, Field Grey, or a variety of camouflage patterns.

If you open the lid of a Field Grey box, there is a short delay, after which a voice shouts "ACHTUNG !" very loudly and a platform supporting a scale model of a Krupp 8.8cm FlAK 36 pops up. The weapon traverses and elevates, and then discharges a tiny, lightweight projectile at high velocity, emitting an ear-splitting BANG as it does so.

Other versions contain a British QF 3.7 inch AA gun (voice yells "STAND TO !"), a Russian 85 mm M1938 (untranslatable), an American 90mm M3 ("TEN-HUT !"), and a French Canon de 75 contre avion modèle 1940 Schneider (Voice shouts "Merde ! Fuir ! Allez, mes amis ! Fuir ! Vite, vite !". The gun does not fire; instead, a little white flag pops up and waves nervously).

Other versions under development. Collect the complete set.

Guaranteed to delight the kiddies and cause frail elderly relatives to suffer a cardiac arrest.

       Is there not a ballista version?
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 21 2013
  

       Sadly no, those are restricted under the ballista missile control agreements...   

       //Russian 85 mm M1938 (untranslatable)   

       Good grief, is it so hard to pick up the dictionary?   

       "M1938" in Russian translates to "M1938" in English.

       It's untranslatable because the HB sadly doesn't support Cyrilic, and using the Roman alphabet would lack authenticity.

       Yes please. Have you got one of those ones with the prawns on them?
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 21 2013
  

       Difficult to get prawns on an alphabet.   

       Possibly with a can of alphabet spaghetti, but I can't vouch for the flavour...

       I want some of the French ones, just for comic effect.
