I'm sorry, but no... The description ...
I'm sorry, but no... The description needs to be much more clear. My 11 year old son paid for these himself, & he was so excited to have more army men to play with. When they arrived, he almost cried & asked me to send them back, which I will be. They are so tiny & the bag fits in one hand. Some of the guys aren't even on bases, & they can't stand up. They shouldn't cost more than $2 at most. Please change the description to tell others that they're "MINI" army men & not "classic" army men. This is very mis-leading. :(

They are army men. But they are small.
I honestly didnt know they made Army Men this Small....
Wow. Too small for what I was going to use them for, but not overly expensive.
Not a bad product, but SMALL.

Very very small and some were stuck together. Worked for what I needed, but wish they were bigger.

Know what you're buying
About the negative reviews: For many Americans, the term 'army men' conjures up images of US GIs, ca. WW II era, in !:32 scale (54 mm or 2 1/4").
Maybe the customers didn't pay quite enough attention to the description.
What this bag contains are copies of classic toy soldiers originally made by Airfix in the 1970's - British 8th army, to be exact, think North Africa campaign - in HO/OO scale (1:72/1:76, 22 mm or 1").
Since they are, again, COPIES, the castings are somewhat imprecise in some cases.
My bag had 8 officers (2 of them missing the pistol), 16 mine sweepers, 15 men standing, firing a machine gun (well, 6 of them are firing machine guns, 9 are firing nothing because their guns didn't cast....), 17 kneeling riflemen, 12 standing riflemen, 23 crawling (3 of them headless), 17 kneeling with binoculars, 15 advancing with short rifles, 12 running with rifles and 14 marching with rifles.
The man stabbing with bayonet and the mortar team included in the original Airfix set are not included.
You can still buy the original figures for about 3 times the price, but if you're into 1:72 scale gaming or diorama building, not too particular about fuzzy casts and are looking for a cheap way to swell the ranks of your mid-20th century colonial troops, this baggie might do the trick.
