Kings of the Wild Frontier!

Today we take a look at the Tim Mee Backwoods Battle Frontiersman Figures Set!

Little green army men too mainstream for you? Looking for more manly beard in your little plastic men? Then this set is for you: The Backwoods Battle set from Tim Mee includes 24 Frontiersman (or as we called them when I was a kid: Mountain Men.)

My elementary school mascot was a Mountain Man, and I would get 'Mountain Man of the Month' pretty much every month for my good grades, so these guys are a fond reminder of times gone by.

I especially like this guy, who is about to bludgeon some homesteaders with the butt of his rifle, because bullets don't grow on trees you know!

This Mountain Man is looking for a good woman. Or a knot hole of modest size. He's been alone for a looong time.

"Squeal like a pig!"

As you can see, the Frontiersmen are slightly larger than your average little green army men.

But they are in 1:1 scale to dinosaurs. Science!

I have to assume these guys originally came with horses or perhaps mules, because a few of them are bowlegged. Either that or they all have rickets. I suppose that too is scientifically accurate.


"I will both shoot AND stab you! No, you don't want to know what I'll do to you after that."

"Is that a b'ar? I kilt one of those when I was just three!"

This set really needs a few large bears or a moose or something. But they have their charms. If you're into plastic icons of lonely self sufficient men with dead animals on their heads (and who isn't?), I recommend you pick up a set.

But don't take my word for it:

*Toyriffic was sent this set for review from the manufacturer. You can get yours at Amazon.


  1. These look awesome! I think it's about time I get another set of little plastic guys. I have been holding off on the Imperial brand Cavemen vs Military set for some time now. But speaking of Tim Mee, I read on Little Weirdos that they've also rereleased the jumbo sized Galaxy Laser Team figures!

    That's pretty awesome that the manufacturer sent you these for review! How did you score that gig!?

    1. I also reviewed the jumbo Galaxy Laser Team: http://toyriffic.blogspot.com/2014/12/galaxy-laser-team-new-and-super-sized.html

      I think I reached out to the manufacturer a few years ago when I discovered they were re-releasing the small Galaxy Laser Team. They've been keeping me (and I've been keeping you) on top of all their releases ever since!

  2. I wonder if they plan on making some horses to go along with the bowlegged fellas? Or maybe bears. That's what they need, bears with saddles.

    I can't say I'm surprised they sent you some review samples. I wouldn't have heard of them if it wasn't for your blog. It doesn't seem like there are too many folks out there talking about them, which is a shame.

    1. Bears with saddles for these guys would be the best thing ever!

  3. I love these lil guys. I need to dig out my old raccoon hat & start playing!
