BMC Toys was founded by Bill McMaster in 1991 and began producing original historically themed plastic soldier playsets shortly thereafter. Inspired by the classic playsets of the 1950s and 1960s he 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. He 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. Bill is sadly missed, but BMC Toys is soldiering on.
BMC Toys 'Classic Army Men Collection' is a new product line of toy soldier figures and accessories manufactured in the USA using vintage toy molds from some of the most iconic US Toy companies of the 20th Century including The Louis Marx Company, Payton, and MPC.
