U.S. Soldiers • Series II

 
60mm "Korean" Soldiers
In 1964, TimMee Toys (which was taken over by Processed Plastic the same year) introduced a 2nd series of 60mm U.S. soldiers comprised of seven new poses representing the Korean War conflict that took place from 1950 to 1953. They were sold in the typical 49¢ and 98¢ bagged header card sets like the  #482 and #194 Military Patrol sets. They included a flag with stand, B.A.R. men, a motorcycle with dispatch rider, an ammo runner and a prone soldier with a separate bipod machine gun that is often missing from the figure due to its small size. These soldiers were also packaged along with the World War II soldiers in several B-Line Toys bagged sets such as the #1198K Mobile Combat Unit, for example. Unlike the other three series of soldiers, these were only cast in olive drab and army green. They were produced until 1970.

These figures are mostly armed with the M-14 rifle that entered service in 1959, four years after the Korean War ended.
