BMC Iwo Jima Marines

I went to a toy soldier show a few years back. I found this cool toy soldier - a green Marine with an awesome radio. I picked him out from the dollar bin, found a few more, as well as the Iwo Jima flag raising group. Looking at their base, I realized these were from the BMC Iwo Jima playset. This set could be purchased for around $30 in the mid 00s. Really good sculpting for the price. I had the D-Day set and the sculpts were mediocre, except for the British. So I was happy to grab these guys.

I really like the bazooka guy (the bazooka actually is separate from the figure) and the prone soldier with the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle).

Prone soldier with BAR.


  1. Those guys look pretty cool and that flag is awesome!

    1. Thanks Alexis. Yes - excellent sculpting on this set.
