TimMee, Marx & BMC Join Forces

Friday, April 27, 2018

Last year, Jeff Imel (the man behind the TimMee Resurgence) acquired BMC Toys and has painstakingly brought the line of military toys back to life after the passing of Bill McMaster in 2014. Jeff has also acquired the rights to several vintage Marx molds. An assortment of Marx battlefield accessories, now dubbed the BMC Classic Playset Accessories, have been reissued in the same army green as the newly released TimMee M41 Walker Bulldog. The set includes 3 pup tents, 2 rifle stacks (with five M1 Garands each), trash cans on a wood platform, M9A1 Bazooka, and tripod mounted M2 Browning .50 caliber air-cooled machine gun, M1917 Browning water-cooled machine gun, and M18 recoil-less rifle. The included .50 cal. can be placed (or secured) on the turret of the Bulldog, giving this already cool tank a more complete and realistic look. In addition, a new BMC Iwo Jima U.S. Marines set has been reissued in a very similar shade of army green. These two new sets have created an instant batch of accessories for the army green Walker Bulldog. Well done, Mr. Imel.

Don't forget Jeff Imel has also brought the classic LIDO GIs back to life as well!

The military is the most important part of a nation. Because a nation safety depends on its military. If the military is strong the safety of the nation is strong. The US military is the strongest military in the world. US military bases

Frank: how did you attach the machine to top of turret?

I just sat it on top for the photo. However, I did attach it to a spare turret I had as an experiment of sorts. I drilled a very small hole in the top of the cupola and on the bottom of the machine gun (a bit tricky)and then attached them together with a small screw. Works quite well. Dunno if I'll actually start drillin' holes in the Bulldog reissues or not. Definitely ain't touchin' the vintage ones....not that there are matching MGs for those anyway.
