PFC Rupert Valero is a soldier serving the in Army currently stationed in Afghanistan, and he's also a toy fan. In his down time, he makes custom toys - both as gifts for the local children to help foster peace and trust with the locals, and as large pieces perfect for collectors. Every one of his toys is made from items found on his military base in Afghanistan, giving them a backstory that can't be matched by something made in a factory and sold in your local big box store.

I had a great interview with Rupert a while back and thought I would show it here for those who haven't seen it. He builds toys from anything and everything, like bottle caps, deodorant cans and much more. You'll be surprised at how cool his work is and also how big of a heart this US solider has.
