Never cared for these the first time around.
Marx figures were so much better!!

It's great to see some of these classic toys back on the market, but too bad you can't still get them for under a dollar a bag. I still have all my originals from the 1950's, including the jeep & AT gun, but they have gotten a bit brittle over the years.

These and the Lido GIs were very common in my old neighborhood. We had a lot of fun with them. They may be crude, especially compared to Marx or Airfix, but they were fun.

The toy soldiers that really should be reissued were those made by Ideal. They were real works of art, beautifully proportioned and posed (but much larger in scale--probably somewhere around 70mm in height.

Ideal figures are recast from time to time. It has been a while since the last round of recasts. Indeed, they stand about 70mm tall. Nice, well-animated poses.
