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.

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.
