Welcome back! Today I get my hands on the goods… Tim Mee Toys ‘Soldiers’! These guys are just about as close as you can get to the Army Men you grew up with. Tim Mee Toys seems to be more of a nostalgia type of toy manufacturer so these guys are more expensive than most Army Men.
I got these guys on Amazon in a 100 count bag. Let’s take a gander, shall we?
After a count I got 53 green and 54 tan soldiers. That’s 7 freebies (including Peewee) bringing my total down to 12 cents each. A penny saved… Either way I still feel that’s a bit high for Army Men. I think they shouldn’t be more than about half that (considering that they are just colored plastic with no embellishments).
I am still happy that these guys still exist in a more pure form (as opposed to the Imperial copies). I think the True Heroes versions are like these guys too but I will have to get them to verify this.
I also bought Tim Mee Toys Galaxy Laser Team ‘Army Men’ set which I shall cover as a special blog post in this series since they really aren’t Army Men but they have great sentimental value to me. Later!
My rating system: 1 out of 5 (with 1 being worst).
