BMC Toys: Christmas Stock and New Production Update

The new batch of BMC Toys has been so well received I'm already finalizing a new production order that should arrive around February 2018. D-Day Normandy sets will likely sell out by early December, and Utah Beach might run out before Christmas. It's too early to tell if anything else in the new lineup will run out before the big day, but I'll do my best to keep the blog posted with regular stock updates as the holiday shopping season progresses. A couple of new items will likely be added to upcoming production, including a new Barn Red color variant...

BMC Toys: Oh Canada , Olive Green with Envy, & That IS a big knife.

The new production of BMC Toys has been in stock for just a short time and thankfully, the products are just as popular as ever. Item #40009 D-Day Normandy Playset will likely be out of stock very soon, and #40027 Utah Beach will probably run out before Christmas. I'm already working on a BMC Toys restock order to arrive as early as February 2018. Along with restocks of the current lineup, I'm considering a couple of new items, and reissuing an older one. First new potential item is a Canadian and German WW2 Soldier 31 piece bagged figure set. The Canadians...

BMC Toys: It's a Gray Day, but Cleveland still Rocks.

Where the heck is that is new batch of BMC? Well, as of right now it's in Cleveland. The container arrived in C-Town by train yesterday and is waiting for a truck to deliver to our warehouse in Akron next week. I know, it seems like it's taking forever, but we're in the home stretch now. Another milestone is all the BMCToys.com product photos and descriptions have been updated. You can now click on the product photos for a large popup of the image instead of the smaller zoom effect that was in place before. Here's some more factory floor...

BMC Toys: Don't be blue, the new stuff is almost here!

The new batch of BMC Toys is almost here, current estimate is some time later next week.  Right now they're on the container ship Maersk Algol that has just docked in California. Next the container will be loaded on a train for the trip to Cleveland, Ohio, then trucked to our warehouse in Akron.  To tide you over here's some more pictures from the recent production. Here's some Union troops being trimmed and sorted: here's some of the Mexican troops from the Alamo set getting flash trimmed and sorted. These figures were originally Cubans in the BMC battle of San...

BMC Toys: Changing of the Guard

BMC Toys: Changing of the Guard

The new batch of BMC Toys should be in stock within the next couple of weeks. This is the first production since I purchased BMC Toys from the family of Bill McMaster following his untimely passing in late 2014. The new production was overseen by Bill's 25+ year business partner, Thomas Leung, and manufactured in the same factory that has been producing the line for over 20 years. Since the package art had to be redesigned due to licensing issues, we took the opportunity to make a few minor upgrades and changes to the product line. Other than the package...
