U.S. Soldiers: 1960's Plastic Army Men Figures
BMC Toys brings back an American Classic. This bag of 40 Olive Green PLASTIC ARMY MEN is proudly manufactured in the United States. There'a 10 different figures and all your old favorites are here. Figures stand up to 2.5 inches tall and are approximately 1:29 (60mm) scale. Made from slightly flexible LDPE plastic with medium detail and some flashing.
Originally produced by LIDO in the mid 1950s, then later by Joy Toy, TootsieToy, and Tim Mee. Some of the figures are very similar to soldiers produced by Marx Toys because Lido and Marx shared the same mold maker, the main difference being these have the PINEAPPLE helmets depicting camouflage netting. The soldiers also predate the platform style of army men, so they are easier to tip over in battle.
These are real plastic heroes, meant to be set up, knocked down, picked up and played with for years to come. LITTLE GREEN ARMY MEN have even been inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame. Packed in plastic bag with header card and recommended for ages 5 and up.
