An American Classic is back in action! This bag of 100 Tim Mee 'plastic army men' is proudly manufactured in the United States, and includes 50 tan and 50 olive green troops for maximum play value. There's about 12 different figures and all your old favorites are here, including minesweeper, bazookaman, radio operator, 60mm mortar, light machine gunner, kneeling rifleman, flame thrower, crawling rifleman, prone rifleman, bayonet fighter, and officer with binoculars and handgun. Figures stand up to 2.1 inches tall (52mm) and are approximately 1:35 scale. Made from slightly flexible LDPE plastic with medium detail, and very little flashing.
Originally produced by 'Processed Plastic' (Tim Mee's parent company) around 1968, these figures were probably the first to depict US infantry troops of the Middle Cold War era with contemporary equipment that included M16 A1 rifles and an experimental Stoner 63A light machine gun. The manufacturer has even restored the vintage 'Tim Mee Toys' logo that hasn't been seen on the shelves for decades.
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.
