>Thread question
What kind of army men playsets did you ask or receive as holiday presents? Were there any particular playsets that you really wanted when you were younger?

It's from the army Jumbo Pack, it's got your generic British paratroopers with 2 German poses in classic Green and Tan, featuring the uncommon tan tent, 2 tan tanks, tan jeep, tan barbed wires and sandbag emplacement. The greens are mirrored except for the tent, which is perfect because I have already bought one :) (solo green tent on the Internet)

The whole bag unpacked. Quite decent and large for less than $20. Like I said I have more toys at home, and enough to make a mass Green paradrop (~8 troopers)

Nice to see that old Centurion tank model still kicking around. Some larger, silver versions were among the first army men tanks I ever owned, standing in as a generic tank for all sides (flag stickers on top rear of the hull differentiated them). Their three-piece design made them fun to destroy: with the classic Patton tank of Timmee fame you can only blow the turret off really, and sometimes not even that.

One Christmas while were living oversaes I got pic related from grandma who was staying with us for the holidays - don't think I asked for it or even knew it existed prior, but I was certainly thrilled and a great many conflicts featured that glorious flattop. Mine was the Canadian version, the only differences being the flag on the island and CAF markings on the two jets, which I believe I still have somewhere. Sadly I made the tough decision to discard the carrier rather than having it make one last trans-Atlantic crossing with us back Canada which I've come to regret immensely, though by that point it was in pretty bad shape.

Still have what remains of the pilots and aircrew (the blue guys in pic), they were more fragile than most of my other army men and several broke over the years.

They haven't seen much action since the scrapping of their floating home, they're slightly smaller than the average army men and are very specialized, limited to airbases and the like. I did get myself another carrier from a garage sale, though it's much smaller, missing its island and more suited to micro machines.

A few threads back an anon identified them as Marx West Point Cadets, didn't think to check that until now but they're actually Marx Dress Marines; mine are KOs I got years ago, can't remember where anymore but probably a dollar store.

Canada has Highlander regiments.

Known, but these are specifically molds from the British Eighth Army which served in Africa by Matchbox

True, though they can still stand in for Canadian soldiers.

>>9498104
Agreed.
Same kit and Canadian troops also have bagpipes.

These other 8th Army soldiers in tan have always served as my Canadians, first got them over 25 years ago now, damn I'm getting old heh.

Interesting, it's a Timmee product and they're still going strong but I haven't seen them selling the carrier in a long time.

I would be tempted to get one as substitute for the USS Flagg. Put it as backround prop or far away shots from a plane or helicopter.

I cant afford best quality, but i like my soldiers as they are. They are brave men. I have a notebook, and make up characters for them and write name/rank under their feet, and even their role but just in the notebook pretending it's enlistment information and documentation.
