Toy soldiers

Click any image to enlarge
I had a couple of these toy soldier packages when I was but a sprout. One was of a western-style log fort, the other may have been the Anzio package shown in the ad below. It had a plastic map with the beach and trenches and what-not printed on it. You landed your toy soldiers on it from landing crafts and then fought the true Mother of all Battles. Rarely did more than one soldier survive capturing the beachhead.

These ads, and the ones after the jump, are from Tom Heroes Comic Book Ads page. He has a lot more ads and other vintage comic book and video game material at his site. Be sure to check it out if you have fond memories of those days.
