More Tim-Mee Recasts

We’ve talked a lot about Tim-Mee plastic figures on Retroist.com. Recently, I got my hands on some new Tim-Mee recasts. The first thing I got was two bags of Galaxy Laser Team figures. I had received a bag of these figures before, but they were black and gray. These new figures were orange, red, green, and blue. The colors were slightly neon and gave the figures a real outer space feel.

Next, I got a bag of Cowboys and Indians. These western-themed figures were red and tan, which I thought was an appropriately western color. They were also slightly bigger than the Laser Team figures. I had some of these figures when I was a kid, and I always enjoyed them. I found the Indians with their bows, tomahawks, and headdresses really interesting. Several of the figures are in interesting poses as well, like kneeling to shoot or crawling forward.

I also got a bad of Legendary Battles figures. These figures follow a western theme, are gray and green, and are a little bigger than the cowboys and Indians. They have a real good heft to them as well, and they have some great weapons. I didn’t have these as a kid, but I really like them now.

Finally, I got the Sea King Rescue Helicopter. This helicopter has working rotor blades and comes with a bag of army men. I had several of these army men as a kid, and I remembered them well. There is a communications guy, a bazooka-carrying soldier, men with machine guns, and a lot more. They can fit inside the helicopter as well, which is lots of fun.

Thanks to Jeff for giving me a chance to check out these great reproductions. I recorded my initial thoughts about them on the video you see below, and if you want to check them out yourself, I’ve put the Amazon.com links below that.

  1. I just learned that these are actually recasts, meaning they were made from the original molds, not reproductions. Makes them that more awesome!

    Not surprising, they look very crisp and defined. I am almost positive I had a bag of the cowboys and indians at some point; or at least a different type of red and white ones. I am pretty sure mine had the indians all red and the cowboys all white, though. Maybe these have been retconned for PC reasons. I found great fun in reposing them by holding them over the gas stove, melting them and moving their limbs into different positions.
