I recognized the M-16's, the mortar, and the flamethrower, but what kind of machinegun bipod setup did the gunner have?
Remember the ones every kid had? They even had a big role in Toy Story, the movie.

Sure doesn't look like a BAR or M-60.

(I am watching the toy show on VH1 right now. Some good memories.)

I didn't see the show, but the M60 was the MG of choise during Nam.

The soldier that's kneeling, or the soldier who's laying down? The kneeling guy has a Bren, I think

Yeah. Definetly a Bren type gun. It had a magazine sticking out of the top.

I could never figgure that one out.

I alway figgured a Bren....Maybe a Stoner?

I always thought it was a bren. FYI they have had the same toy soldiers forever...I was playing with them only a few years ago.

It looks like a Bren type, but the bipod is wrong.

The section devoted to Army Guys was way down on the page but pretty cool. It even include other famous Army Guys.

My grandma had a set of French Foreign Legion figures w/ Arab foes that I loved but was never able to find to buy.

It also had the Britain's Civil War figures. I loved those guys, especially the Napolean Cannon limber.
