Tim Mee Toy Soldiers


I've been on the lookout for some fun green Army Men to use in my toy photography, and have seen some pretty impressive deluxe sets out and about as well as online, but wasn't seeing exactly what I was looking for. Bubba over at Toyriffic reminded me just exactly what that was recently- the toy soldiers of our youth, produced by Tim Mee. Revived by J.Lloyd International c.2011, these plastic army men are the same Vietnam era sculpts I remembered from childhood, updated in two shades of punchy green- just what I was looking for! Plastic Army Men are great for their versatility in play, fun to combine use with many other toys in my collection. Check out the video:


J.Lloyd has many other fun color combinations available and other plastic mini-figures from the legendary Galaxy Laser Team to Cowboys and Indians. Be sure to check out my May post on Plastic Policemen set by Funtastic, and visit the Army Men Homepage online!

More Later- Make It FUN!

  1. I bought a tub of those a few years ago. They are fun. BUT what I miss most is the Marx Navarone playset. It had wounded soldiers in it.

  2. I just love your videos man!The simple backdrop reminds the viewer that they are toys,whereas life like dioramas try to mask that.They work extremely well with Transformers and Hulk btw.
