The initial wave of production is in transit and estimated to arrive around early October. These are production samples currently part of a massive product photo project:

The second wave of new BMC CTS items is shipping soon and expected to arrive around mid-November:
  • BMC-67290 CTS WW2 US Artillery 12pc OD Green
  • BMC-67301 CTS WW2 US Soldiers 33pc Tan
  • BMC-67302 CTS WW2 US Soldiers 33pc Gray
  • BMC-67320 CTS WW2 German Panzer IV Tank Gray
  • BMC-67322 CTS WW2 German Panzer IV Tank Dark Gray
  • BMC-67325 CTS WW2 German Panther Tank with Crew Gray
  • BMC-67330 CTS WW2 German Tiger Tank with Crew Gray
  • BMC-67345 CTS WW2 US Sherman Tank 2pc OD Green
  • BMC-67350 CTS WW2 British Churchill Crocodile Tank OD Green
  • BMC-67351 CTS WW2 British Churchill Crocodile Tank Tan
  • BMC-67355 CTS WW2 Japanese Chi-Ha Tank 2pc Tan
  • BMC-67370 CTS WW2 German Artillery 15pc Gray

I'm also working on contents of three new BMC CTS Alamo bagged sets for next year. The first bagged set is expected to include 12 Texans and 24 Mexican Infantry. Another bagged set will likely be all Mexico (maybe 6 Texans), and the 3rd will be set of Mexican Light Cavalry. Jim & Dave at Classic Toy Soldiers created so many different Alamo era Mexico figures it's been tough to wrap my brain around them all. I'm leaning towards matching colors with the current BMC Brown Texans / Power Blue Mexicans as those have been the most popular. Let me know what you think.

BMC Toys - American Hero Collection: 

Restocks of the BMC Yorktown, Iwo Jima Marines and WW2 Allies & Axis Flags arrived last month. The new BMC WW2 German Flak Guns are delayed until next week due to an error on my part. Restocks of the Gray King Tiger Tanks, OD Green Amtrak, and the new blockhouse accessories bagged sets are scheduled to arrive around early October:

The battle of Trenton bagged sets are about to ship for mid-November arrival. The redesigned Jagdpanzer IV Tank Destroyer mold needs a couple of finishing touches so won't be available until around February 2024. 

BMC Toys - Classic Army Men Collection:

A few restocks and some new items arrived in August.

The 'babies' mold has been repaired and the new sets will be available around early October:

BMC Toys - Plastic Army Women Collection:

The Purple Plastic Army Women are back in stock and Blue are running low. Rosie the Riveter Statue Colors have been delayed, and I'm not sure when they will be available.

I've made a lot of progress on new product content, but there is still an enormous amount of work to do. Please bear with me as I've officially bitten off more than I can chew.

Happy Labor Day,
Jeff at BMC Toys

  • Thank you Jeff for all that you do! I’m particularly excited about the WW2 Italians in their proper grey-green color for the European campaigns.

    While I’m on the subject, I would love to see the WW2 Italians released in “desert tan” to reflect their campaigns in Africa where they fought bravely alongside the Africa Korps.

    I’m also very pleased with the other BMC/CTS releases! It’s the excellent collaboration of two fantastic companies. Keep up the great work!

  • Perhaps on the colors for the CTS Mexicans, you should do cream and metallic blue which were discontinued but parallel the Marx colors.

  • I know it will be awhile, as I’m sure you have your hands full enough as it is, but I think you should make the marx howitzers in red. Also, it would be great if you could make the CTS ww2 US infantry figures in blue and red. I also think the CTS Alamo Mexicans would look good in a darker blue color so that they could be more suitable as Napoleonic French infantry.Thanks for be awesome and keep up the good work.
