Supreme Red Storm Rising – NATO vs Soviet Playset

Throughout the 1970s and 80s the expectation of a Soviet-led invasion of Germany was one of the greatest fears in many military minds. This set recreates a grand-scale battle in that what-if scenario, involving 224 Soviet Troops and N.A.T.O. infantry, all in authentic modern uniforms (most of which are RARE, long-discontinued models from the 1970s and 1980s). The set comes with a huge array of accurate military hardware, including 4  Soviet T-80 and 2 American Abrams tanks, guided missile launchers, a helicopter. 3 armored personnel carriers, a U.S. truck and much more.  Read more…

2016 Playset Spotlight: Our New Vietnam War Playsets

playset-140b-detailEach spring, we review all of our playsets – currently there are 121 – and consider whether we should update their contents to reflect the appearance of new goods in their historical period, and also determine whether everything in them is still available. Many playsets are changed little or not at all, some are re-written, some are cast aside entirely and some are replaced with new sets which contain different assortments of goods from our huge inventory. The most exciting part of our annual playset review is the opportunity to create entirely new playsets which utilize items which have just come on the market. For 2016, some of the most exciting new sets have been a late-year rush of releases devoted to 20th century conflicts, including Vietnam, The Cold War and the Korean Conflict.

Vietnam War Playsets

2016 saw the release of Vietnam War 54mm plastic toy soldiers from Toy Soldiers of San Diego and Mars of Ukraine. These emboldened us to create our very first range of Vietnam War playsets. To these new figures we have added additional figures and accessories from New Ray, Marx Recast, BMC and even a beautifully sculpted fish tank aquarium decorative sculpture to create three Vietnam War Playsets.

Now, they are being rooted out by local Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Regular troops. The planters resist, aided by a handful of French veterans who chose to stay behind when their army returned to France. Read more…
