BMC Toys was founded by Bill McMaster in 1991 and began producing original historically themed plastic soldier playsets shortly thereafter. He was inspired by the classic Marx Toys of his youth and used his experience as a Toys-R-Us purchasing agent to become an entrepreneur and bring this classic style of toy to a whole new generation. Bill created a bridge to the 21st Century for the plastic soldier hobby and even mentored several new plastic soldier companies including TSSD, and LOD. Bill operated BMC Toys until he unexpectedly passed away in 2014. VictoryBuy worked with Bill's family to continue production of the BMC Toys product line. Current production is made in the same factory that has been producing the line for over 20 years.
