I had army men in those same poses, but not in olive green, not blue, which I don't remember from the 1960s.

I had at least two drivers identical to the guy driving the Weasel, but they were a darker blue -- and they came with Fort Apache, as I recall, as wagon drivers.

I don't remember the Weasel, either, but that was a long time ago.

Yes, my childhood, exactly…except, where are the dirt balls-as-mortar-or-artillery rounds, lol? Darts were also popular mortar/arty in my neighborhood!

(@Oberlindes: All my US Army guys were in green, too. In fact, even from different manufacturers, they were always common sense color-coded. American Rev War--Brits-red, Continentals-blue; US Civ War--US-blue, CSA-grey; US WWII-green, Germans-grey, Japanese-khaki, etc.)

We had plastic WW2 toy soldiers about 6inches in height. Our rules were toss small Lincoln logs at them to knock them down. A rifle got one, a smg got 2 and a mg got 3. If you knocked them down they were kia.
